When it’s time to select a new pair of eyeglasses, it can be challenging to find the frame that feels the best for you. Eyeglass makers have become increasingly aware of their clients’ desire to customize frames as well as offer a variety of colors, designs, and frame shapes. Understanding more about your face shape and the types of frames that would look best on you can help to reduce the amount of time you spend trying on frames that don’t complement your face shape. Here are a few useful tips to help you find glasses best suited for your face shape.
If you’ve never worn contact lenses before, it can seem a bit intimidating. After all, you’re inserting something into your eye! Let’s ease your mind about the first step – your contact lens exam. This post will walk you through what’s involved in a contact lens exam and what you can expect every step of the way.
Why do you even need a pair of sunglasses in the first place? The sun emits very harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. You may want to protect your eyes from these rays. Prolonged exposure to UV rays may cause cataracts or pterygiums or even damage your vision.
You have almost certainly heard of diabetes, which is one of the most common chronic health conditions in the United States with an estimated 100 million adults currently living with diabetes or pre-diabetes. This metabolic disorder occurs when the body is no longer able to regulate its own blood sugar levels and requires intervention to keep them stable. Most people are aware that diabetes can have serious consequences for our health. However, you may be surprised to learn that it can also influence our vision. This is because patients who are diabetic can go on to develop a complication that is known as diabetic retinopathy. Without prompt treatment, diabetic retinopathy can cause permanent vision loss. It is for this reason that patients who suffer from diabetes are asked to attend regular diabetic-related eye exams.
While dry eye isn’t a serious condition, it can have a major impact on your quality of life. You may find your eyes get tired faster or you have difficulty reading. Not to mention the discomfort of a burning sensation or blurry vision. Let’s take a look at dry eye treatments – from simple self-care to innovative prescriptions and therapies – to help you see clearly and comfortably.
Eye emergencies cover a range of incidents and conditions such as; trauma, cuts, scratches, foreign objects in the eye, burns, chemical exposure, photic retinopathy, and blunt injuries to the eye or eyelid. Since the eye is easily damaged, serious complications can occur from an eye injury thus, any of these conditions without proper treatment can lead to a partial loss of vision or even permanent blindness. Likewise, certain eye infections, other medical conditions, such as blood clots or glaucoma, and eye problems such as a painful red eye or vision loss that are not due to injury also need urgent medical attention.
CIRRUS® 6000, the next-generation OCT from ZEISS, delivers high-speed image capture with HD imaging detail and a wider field of view, so you can make more informed decisions and spend more time with your patients.
Faster imaging with greater detail, at 100,000 scans per second, for improved patient care.
Comprehensive, clinically-validated tools to diagnose and manage a full range of conditions.
Seamless transfer of raw patient data from previous generations of CIRRUS for continuity of patient care.
Signs of early disease are often subtle and can occur in the far periphery of the retina. Widefield imaging has shown to reveal more pathology than standard fields and allows
for more thorough documentation and detection of peripheral retinal pathology. However, traditional fundus imaging remains the standard for macular and optic nerve diagnosis and documentation.
CLARUS™ 500 is the next generation, ultra-widefield fundus imaging system from ZEISS that provides true color and high-resolution across an ultra-wide image.
Manage your patients with confidence:
COLOR. Capture True Color to aid in differential diagnosis
CLARITY. See high-resolution details from the posterior pole to the periphery
COMFORT. Create a comfortable patient experience that ensures image integrity
Advancing clinical efficiency for glaucoma.
Expand testing options. Optimize your patient management with new SITA™ Faster 24-2 and 24-2C tests.
Identify progression. Guided Progression Analysis™ (GPA™) helps determine if visual field loss is progressing (where and how fast) to help augment treatment.
Streamline workflow. Reduce set-up time and provide best test results with the Liquid Trial Lens™ and automated eye alignment.
Interact with results. Access HFA3 results and the entire patient test history as well as change baselines on the fly.
Synchronize data for complete patient history. Test patients at any HFA3 or HFAII-i, and generate reports with complete test history.
See the whole picture. HFA is the cornerstone of the Integrated Diagnostic Imaging platform for glaucoma that provides a new level of information for optimal patient management based on visual field function and corresponding OCT structure data.
