Don’t Let Your Glasses Keep You from the Activities You Love

Filed under: dr boothe — Tags: — Doctor Boothe Eye @ 12:24 pm

Have your glasses ever kept you from participating in sports or physical activities? For most people, the answer to that question is going to be yes. Glasses make it hard to do well in sports or other physical activities, such as hiking, climbing, and boating.

Glasses don’t stay on very well when you’re moving around quickly and sweating. In a basketball or soccer game, you have to worry about them flying off of your face. Your glasses can also get sweaty, smudged, and easily broken or scratched. Glasses are even a problem when you are a spectator. If you watch a football game on a cold day, your glasses can fog up and cause you to miss the action on the field.

The obvious answer to this problem is to get rid of your glasses. The best way to do that is with permanent vision correction performed by Dr. William Boothe. When you come see Dr. Boothe at Boothe Laser Center, you can discover how easy it is to have LASIK surgery on your eyes. After you have LASIK, you won’t need glasses or contact lenses ever again.

If you love sports, whether as a participant or a fan, LASIK surgery could be right for you. Review your options at Boothe Laser Center, and talk to Dr. Boothe today.

Now LASIK is More Affordable than Ever

Filed under: dr boothe — Tags: — Doctor Boothe Eye @ 1:15 pm

Glasses and contacts aren’t cheap, to begin with. And the costs of the lenses, prescriptions, frames and cleaning solutions can add up to a lot of money, over time. But the idea of paying for LASIK eye surgery seems daunting to some. How can they justify that cost, all at once?

The difference with the cost of LASIK, versus glasses or contacts, is that LASIK is a one-time cost. Most people will never need any further correction to their vision, either with surgery, or with corrective lenses. So what you pay, today, is the last thing you’ll need to pay to correct your vision — ever.

LASIK is also very affordable, now. Even though most health insurances don’t cover the procedure, you can use your Flexible Spending Account money to pay for it. So, if it looks like you’ll have money left over at the end of the year that you’ll otherwise forfeit, this is a good use for it. There are also savings available, depending on how much correction you need, and Boothe Laser Center has several different financing options available to make the procedure affordable.

If you’d like to review your options, it’s as easy as seeing Dr. Boothe for a consultation. He can answer your questions and let you know if LASIK will work for you. Don’t let finances get in the way of seeing clearly. Stop complaining about your glasses and schedule your free consultation, today.

Habits For Better Eye Sight

Filed under: Boothe Eye Care, Doctor-Boothe, boothe eyecare, boothe laser center, dr boothe — Doctor Boothe Eye @ 4:52 pm

Bad habits like smoking and excessive alcohol consumption have a negative effect on the cardiovascular and nervous systems. As a result, you may suffer from headaches, breathing difficulties and your vision might deteriorate. You can rectify the situation by changing manners, and inclinations, which are only a bit helpful. Physicians share advice to cultivate in yourself new visual habits that will help your eyes and you will see well. Dr. William Boothe discusses what habits are needed to improve vision at Boothe Eye Care

Top Two Habits that are necessary to improve vision

We can all agree that we use our eyes of almost all the time, except when sleeping. The introduction of certain visual habits will help you relieve stress from your visual system. It does not take much time. You just need to learn how to use the eyes and mind.

Some of the visual habits will help your eyes work properly, thus preventing the accumulation of eyestrain.Others will make you alert and focused and will help you better understand what you see and feel. Make these habits part of your regular day and it will bring you immediate benefits.

Regularly blink.

When you blink the eye’s surface is cleaned and moisturized. If you are relaxed, you blink10-12 times per minute, or once every five seconds.But people with low vision, subconsciously tend to keep their eyes wide open that causes stress and fatigue in their eyes. Do not forget to blink every three to five seconds.

Of course, you will not walk for days with a stopwatch in hand to make sure you do this. Just be conscious of how much more effort you put into blinking regularly, and take note of how much better your eyes feel.Our eyelid is the only part of the body, which is regulated by only one muscle. By properly relaxing this muscle, you can achieve relaxation throughout the body.
An fluttering blink is an exercise that you can do at any time of day. For example, if you notice in yourself, that you are peering into something, or when the eyes are strained and tired. This exercise is fairly easy – you just blink 10-20 times.

Do not strain and do not force your eyes closed. On the contrary – relax your facial muscles during blinking.Then, for a while close your eyes and relax. Repeat these two or three times. Fluttering blinkswill help you keep your eyes moist and relaxed.

Use peripheral vision

When you focus on an object, your eyes just get information from the peripheral consciousness – from the side, front and rear with respect to where you look.Relaxed and balanced vision allows an organized and coordinated way use the central and peripheral vision.

People with visual impairments are often focusing too much of their eyes on one subject,thereby blocking peripheral vision.This is an artificially created scope that may cause mental fatigue and stress.
You should always try to notice everything that comes into your field of view – a table on a book that you read is laying, the space between you and optometric table or, for example, the space that surrounds you when you are driving.

Dr. Boothe performed my eyes correction in April 23, 2011

When I was at the Boothe Eyecare’s waiting room that day I had the opportunity to talked to patients who had the treatment before and came for a follow-up and when they told about their diagnoses I was shocked because some patients had severe eye diseases or conditions. They told about their positive results and it assured me that my -5.5 number in both of my eyes can be cured.

By the way, for 5 years prior to the lasik surgery I wore contact lenses. Lately I was troubled by dryness in my eyes. The operation was very quick and I did not have enough time to realize what is happening before it was over. Very quickly afterwards I noticed that I could see much more clearly the things around me when I was still in the recovery room.

I recommend Dr. William Boothe to everyone, he and his team were nice and professional. They gave me a kit of medications to use after surgery, clear instructions and made sure my recovery progresses well every time I came in for a follow up.

How 5 minutes at Boothe Eyecare changed my life

A few years ago I had poor vision and it affected me and my life. I was extremely protective about my eyes and always wore glasses – many times I damaged them or lost them. I felt very limited. For example, my friends freely played football, volleyball or basketball but I always was afraid that the ball will break my glasses. My friends encouraged me to go to an eye surgeon and look for a laser treatment but every time I found an excuse not to go.

During the last three months my eyesight bothered me more than usual so I seriously thought of having a laser treatment but I wanted the best eye surgeon. I turned on the computer and began looking on the internet for ‘the best Lasik eye surgeon in Dallas (I am from Texas). My search stopped when I found the Boothe Laser Center. I was surprised when I read that William Boothe was the most experienced Intralasik surgeon in the USA. I was glad that I really found a good surgeon with terrific skill. The first thing what I did the next morning was calling the Boothe Eye Care & Laser Center and booking a suitable day and time for consultation with Dr. Boothe. Having never been at this center I was a bit tense.

Dr. Boothe made on me a good initial impression. He was respectful and very careful when examining my eyes. I was nervous about the part of the surgery where the laser will touch my eyes. I was afraid that I would not be able to tolerate it. Dr. Boothe reassured me that the laser itself affects each eye for less than one minute and I will only feel a little pressure. Yet my eyes will be numbed by the anesthetic eye drops and my eyes will be ”freezed” so I will not feel any pain. I was very pleased when each member of staff respected my opinions and advised me about the different options which can be used on my eyes. I wanted to avoid some exam procedures but the nurse explained that it was very important before surgery because it showed ”vision picture” of the eyes. I went back with all results to Dr. Boothe. He said that the Lasik procedure to improve vision was the appropriate surgery for me. Before the surgery Dr. Boothe prescribed me with eye drops which he said I must use each day for two weeks.

On the surgery day I was anxious. Before the operation I talked with other patients who underwent treatment at this center and had latest follow-up visit to Dr. Boothe. They talked about their experiences and had similar feelings before surgery. Their surgery results were amazing! They read without glasses and I wanted to experience the same. When the nurse called my name I stood up and courageously came to the desk. I had a very strong desire to improve my vision and my life.

Before surgery the nurse helped me lay comfortably on the operating bed and dripped my eyes. Dr. Boothe said that I should look at the green light and try to think about something nice. Before each step he stopped for a few seconds and explained me what he will be doing next. The nurse flushed the eyes with special solutions and Dr. Boothe said that I could get up and go to rest. I could not believe my ears! Is that all? The Lasik procedure is quick and painless indeed.

After surgery I had a cloudy mist in my eyes and nurses helped me to go to postoperative room. I felt some ”plucking” in the eyes. The nurse explained that if I regularly drip eye drops the feeling will go away. Dr. Boothe looked at whether the flap is replaced properly and allowed me to go home.

The next morning was wonderful. I sat behind the wheel and went to Boothe Laser Center. Dr. Boothe to check my eyes and I had 20/15 vision. Now I am so glad that I had it done!

Dr. Boothe gave me ”new eyes”!

I want to send hugs and kisses to Dr. William Boothe. He is a great surgeon! He was able to treat a condition that other doctors I went to preferred not to help me with.

I came to the Boothe Eye Laser Center with such a poor vision and I already thought that no one would be able to help me. My friend improved her vision at this center and was very pleased with the attention and service of each member of the clinic’s staff. She offered me to only come to have a consultation with another professional surgeon and I listened to her advice, although I had no more hope. I thought that they could help my friend because she didn’t have such a serious problem with her eyesight like mine. In the right eye I had a “bouquet” of eye diseases: -7.5 vision, hole in the retina and astigmatism. In the left eye I had -4 vision & swollen cornea as a result of wearing contact lenses for eight years. Also in the left eye I had growths on the cornea. It was so uncomfortable to have a big difference between eyesight in each of my eyes. My eye muscles were very weak because my vision deteriorated at childhood.

When Dr. Boothe got the result after all of the eye tests he said that I can improve my vision. I must be very patient because it would take a long time since my vision had not been properly treated. His assistant was very detailed when telling me about my treatment, going over it step by step. It made a huge impression on me and I agreed to get treatment under his guidance. Three months ago I had a scleroplasty procedure and one month ago I had an eye correction surgery.

When some people said that miracles do not happen, I can respond that they do occur if you get treated at the Boothe Eye Care & Laser Center. I think that I had many vision problems and to realize that I could get rid of them in a couple of painless procedures is amazing. Due to the attentive and delicate execution of the surgical operations by Dr. Boothe and his well-chosen team, I recommend doing your laser eye surgery at Boothe’s Center, especially for people who have myopia that is more than average and/or a high degree.

Boothe Eyecare & Dr William Boothe

About four month ago I had Lasik Surgery at Boothe Eye Care & Laser Center with Dr. William Boothe, and I’m very satisfied with my vision!

I am journalist. I spend much time each day working on a computer. I wanted to have good vision because it is very important for my health (I started to get headaches from staring at the screen for so many hours M-F) and my career. I looked for the best procedure to improve my vision. I found out that the IntraLASIK procedure is what I need – safe, quick, and accurate.

I went to Dr. William Boothe. I was in Boothe Eyecare a few times before for various eye exams and this time, after I told them I’m interested in IntraLASIK and they made sure I’ll be a good candidate, the nurse made an appointment for my surgery. Before surgery, Dr. Boothe made me feel very relaxed and tried to ease my fears. I was confident that I was in good hands. I stayed at the Center no more an hour. The surgery itself took less than 15 minutes. I did not feel a thing. It was much easier then expected.

On the next day I was able to return to work. Four months later, I am proud to say I have 20/20 vision and had no problems. Big Thank You!

Thanks Dr William Boothe and Boothe Eyecare

Dr. William Boothe, I would like to express my opinion about Boothe Eyecare and about my laser surgery. Before this review I did not express my opinion because I have not had time, but now my friend wants to do the surgery, so I decided to share my experience with her and everyone else.

The surgery was done in 2005. Before doing it, I thought a lot about this surgery, since I was fed up wearing glasses and the lenses were always got lost. I didn’t have much trust with the different centers, because one of my friends did it and after 7-8 months after it his vision began to fall to the point it was as bad as before. Therefore, at first I was searching online and reading ophthalmology websites that described the various methods to improve vision, then read information on your site.Finally I decided to call Dr. Boothe’s Center.

I came to Boothe Laser Center and talked to an assistant, which I liked very much because she paid attention to all of the patients she saw. And then I was taken for an examination of my eyes, which was very scrupulously and after all of this I was given the conclusion that the operation can be done (had -2.5 …- 3.0 vision, astigmatism). Dr. Boothe recommended to do LASIK and offered to do the surgery the next day. I had the laser surgery, which took about 10 minutes with preparation (I was getting dressed in special clothes for surgery, they used anesthetic to minimize pain). After the surgery I went home, took analgesic tablets and sleeping pills, which I were prescribed to me at the Center and went to sleep. In the morning my condition was not very good, I felt a little dizzy. I went to the center where Dr. Boothe’s assistant washed my eyes and applied eye drops after which I felt better. I felt well after the laser surgery, starting somewhere around one day since its completion. On the third day after surgery I was shocked. I looked at the calendar in the exam cabinet and was able to read the names of the months.

My vision has been super – 20/20 – ever since, despite the fact that the I strain my eyes constantly, working at a computer all day and driving a car to and from the office. Thank you Dr. Boothe and his staff for my vision and for your golden hands and attention to patients. I recommended my friend to do laser eye surgery at Boothe Eyecare as well.
