Boothe EyeCare Presents Steps To Preserve your Eyesight

Filed under: boothe eyecare — Tags: — Doctor Boothe Eye @ 5:48 pm

The ability to see the world around us is one of the most valuable gifts of nature to mankind. However, due to bad habits, lack of vitamins, and the negative impact of the environment, a young person will discover visual impairments every second. In order to avoid huge glasses when you’re 30and to avoid the loss of pleasure of seeing the world at 50, it is best to take care of your own health in advance.
Correct and valid nutrition plays a huge role in the fight for sight. You need to eat fruit and vegetables, which contain the necessary amount of lutein, everyday. This includes carrots, persimmons, beans, peas, tangerines, and anything that is reddish-orange in color. Blueberries can be especially useful in fresh or candied form. In the winter, when they are out of season, a jar of jam will be enjoyable.
The lack of vitamins in the body can affect not only vision, but also can cause other negative consequences such as lower the ability to withstand even the common cold. Unfortunately, no matter how many fruits and vegetables people eat, the nutrients enter the body very slowly and are absorbed in small amounts. Therefore, additional stimulation of the body will not hurt anyone. It is possible, for example, to diversify your diet, using dietary supplements or vitamins. A particularly acute need for such assistance arises in early spring, when all diseases are aggravated. But be careful. To choose the right supplements or vitamins for the eyes is necessary to consult with a specialist. So you can visit Boothe Eyecare & Laser Center, where our consultants will be happy to assist you.

In addition to nutrition, you must also regularly rest your eyes especially during work. The weekend is better when you spend time outside relaxing, and not in front of the TV or computer. On a sunny day, you should use high quality sunglasses and guard your eyes from dust or small particles. While selecting sunglasses, pay attention to the color of the lens. Do not choose a colored glass, as this may negatively affect your health. Red, pink, and yellow lenses have a negative effect on the nerve receptors, causing fatigue. At work, you should perform from time to time a special exercise to recharge. Concentrate your view on a distant object for twenty-seconds, and then focus your view on near object. Doing these steps ten times will give your eyes a rest.

If you start from an early age to care for your eyes, have regular visits to an ophthalmologist and eat right, you can avoid deteriorating vision when you get old. And later on, when you want to read an interesting book or article, you won’t have to ask your grandchildren to find your glasses!

Having healthy eyes is important
Vision is one of the most important human senses. 80% of the information about the world we find it is through our eyes. Good vision is a prerequisite for a healthy and happy life.

How do you maintain eye health?
Fast, easy, and necessary
The earliest step to take is a regular eye examination by an ophthalmologist. This is painless and requires the least amount of time. Dr. Boothe will quickly examine your vision and determine any problems or irregularities you may have. He will also offer suggestions and recommendations on how to treat them. Dr. William Boothe will determine not only the quality of your vision, but also assess the overall health of the organism.

Eye examinations should be done annually even if you feel that you have no vision problems. It is important to know that many diseases of the eye in the early stages take place without any symptoms. If you do not have very good eyesight, you should keep in mind that without a properly matched lens, it might deteriorate further. To determine the appropriate method of correction you should consult Dr. Boothe.

The eyes are the mirror of health
Regular eye exams can help detect early signs of diseases or to prevent their development. For example eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, and functional disorders of the eye muscles, result in the appearance of strabismus. Dr. William Boothe will also be able to identify the symptoms of hypertension and diabetes to determine the risk of stroke and to assess the level of cholesterol in the body.

Your eyes can not go to the doctor without you, so take care of them yourself and make an appointment at Boothe Eye Care & Laser Center today!

Vision checking it is so easy
In today’s rapidly changing world is especially important to spend time caring for the health of the eye. Make it’s not hard: just go to Boothe Eye Care Center. Experienced specialists in a few minutes check your eyesight and give necessary recommendations.

What is vision checking?

An eye exam begins with a conversation with Dr. Boothe. He will ask you to tell him about your vision, ask questions, and then carry out a survey of your eyes with a special electronic device, which accurately determines whether you have a change of refraction and whether or not you need a correction.

Then Dr. Boothe will check the sharpness of your vision: to do this he will show you letters or special characters on the plates or using a projector.

Why do you need a check up?
First of all a check up is needed to determine whether or not you need vision correction, as well as to identify potential eye diseases. If your visual acuity is below 1.0 (the lower limit of normal), Dr. Boothe will recommend the method you need for vision correction – one that is right for you.

If you already wear glasses or contact lenses, do not forget to take them with you during your visit to Boothe Eye Care Center.

Boothe Eye Care Discusses History Of Lasik

Filed under: Boothe Eye Care, boothe eyecare — Doctor Boothe Eye @ 6:40 pm

For two centuries, people have tried to find methods to correct eyesight by altering the curvature of the cornea. The most common methods of vision correction have become glasses, and then contact lenses.However, glasses are inconvenient to use, and limit the field of vision and contact lenses cause dry eyes and can be lost. Both do not offer 100% vision, but have many restrictions.

About 20 years ago, Professor Fedorov used a method to correct myopia by applying a special blade for radial incisions or cuts on the cornea, and as a result, changing the curvature of the cornea. The operation, called “radial keratotomy”immediately became popular in this country and abroad.

In the beginning it seemed that the problem of myopia was finally solved, but a high percentage of complications showed imperfection in the technique. For example, one of the most frequent complications is astigmatism, which arises from the fact that operating scars are not always uniformly healed on the cornea. Particular difficulties caused glare from scarring refractions of light on the surface of the cornea when driving a car at night. Often, in the place of the cuts there was inflammation of the cornea. There were also cases when the cornea is imploding on postoperative cicatrices that sometimes led to the loss of the eye.These and other complications, and postoperative low accuracy of the result, significantly reduced the interest in radial keratotomy.

Scientists and ophthalmologists continued to search for and develop new and more advanced techniques. In 1988, Professor Troke first used an excimer laser for the correction.The essence of PRK is to reshape the cornea by laser vaporization of its surface layers.Using modern laser technology combined with powerful computers has allowed a high degree of accuracy to predict the result of the operation as well as minimized probability of of various complications.

The most advanced for today is the technique of Lasik, developed by doctors in the early nineties. Lasik is a combination of using the excimer laser irradiation with super fine microsurgical technique.
At Boothe Eye Care & Laser Center Lasik, established in1987, laser eye correction has been successfully performed on thousands of patients. Vision is restored within 2-3 hours after surgery. The method is painless, since local anesthetic eye drops are used. The operation is performed on both eyes in an outpatient day (at the request of the patient) and has a very quick recovery period.
