How Smoking Harms Your Vision

Want healthy eyes? Try giving up the smokes!

Smoking is the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the United States. It harms nearly every organ in your body — including your eyes!

Here are some reasons you should ditch the bad habit!
Smoking & Cataracts

Cataracts are a leading cause of blindness in the world. More than 50 percent of Americans will have a cataract or have had cataract surgery by age 80.

Smokers significantly increase the risk of developing a cataract compared with non-smokers. Studies have showen that people who smoke double their chance of forming cataracts, and the risk continues to increase the more you smoke.
Smoking and Macular Degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) affects the center of the retina, which is responsible for sharp, central vision needed for everyday tasks such as reading, household chores and driving.

Macular degeneration causes “blind spots” and severely impairs the central vision. AMD is the leading cause of permanent vision loss among Americans age 65 and older.

Studies show smokers can have an increased risk of developing AMD compared with people who have never smoked. And female smokers over age 80 are 5.5 times more likely to develop AMD than non-smokers of the same age.
Smoking and Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy damages the blood vessels of the retina and can result in severe vision loss....

May is Healthy Vision Month

It is important to keep our eyes healthy. Here are some ways you can do just that!

Get a dilated eye exam.
Getting a dilated eye exam is the only way to catch eye diseases early, because with many, there are no warning signs. Talk to your eye care professional about how often you should have one.

Live a healthy lifestyle.
Eating healthy foods, maintaining a healthy weight, managing chronic conditions, and not smoking can lower your risk of eye disease.

Know your family history.
Talk to your family members about their eye health history. It’s important to know if anyone has been diagnosed with an eye disease, since many are hereditary. This will help to determine if you are at higher risk for developing an eye disease yourself.

Common Sports Eye Injuries

A lot can go wrong in a seemingly simple game of catch! Always keep your eyes on the ball to prevent some of these sport related eye injuries:

Corneal Abrasion:
One of the most common injuries due to sports is a corneal abrasion. An abrasion is a scratch on the surface of the eye. In most healthy patients, an abrasion will heal within 2-3 days. It is still important to see an eye physician treat the abrasion and to prevent infection as well as check your eyes for other injuries.

Traumatic Iritis:
Traumatic iritis is inflammation of the iris. With iritis due to any cause, you can have eye pain, blurred vision, and usually very sensitive to bright lights.

Keep an Eye on Your Vision

Healthy Vision Month is a great opportunity to learn about eye health and to make sure you and your family are taking the necessary steps to maintain healthy eyes.

Early detection of eye disease is key in preventing vision loss and blindness. Many people who are at risk for vision loss do not know it, and millions of people living in the United States have undetected vision problems and eye diseases.

Many common eye diseases that can lead to vision loss and blindness, such as diabetic eye disease, glaucoma, or age-related macular degeneration (AMD), often have no early warning signs or symptoms.

Having regular eye exams to make sure the eyes are healthy and seeing their best is important for everyone. However, the risk of vision loss and blindness is higher for some people based on race, ethnicity, and other demographic and socioeconomic factors.

Sports Eye Protection Tips

How Do I Protect My Eyes While Playing Sports?

The ways in which an unprotected eye may be injured in a sporting event are many. But there are also many ways in which we can protect them. It is especially important that children who are learning to coordinate or who have low skill levels wear protective eye gear. To reduce the risk of a serious eye injury, here are some precautions you should be taking when playing sports.

Baseball. In the event of an errant pitch, a ball lost in the sun or a thrown bat, a baseball player should wear a face-guard made of a sturdy plastic or polycarbonate material along with eye goggles or eye guards.

Basketball. Basketball players should wear eye goggles at all times in the event of an errant elbow, a stray poke from another player’s finger, or even an errantly thrown basketball.

Eye Injury Treatments

As many precautions as we take, sometimes the inevitable happens. If an injury to the eye does occur, it is important to know what to do in order to prevent any serious problems.

Specks in the Eye

    Don’t rub the affected eye.
    Flush the eye with lots of water.
    See a doctor if the speck doesn’t wash out, or if pain or redness continues.
 
Cuts, Punctures, and Foreign Objects in the Eye

    Unlike with specks of dust or metal, be sure not to wash out the affected eye.
    Don’t try to remove a foreign object stuck in the eye.
    Seek immediate medical attention.

Chemical Burns

Work-Related Eye Injuries – Examples

There is a wide range of ways that you could injure your eyes at your work place. Some are quite obvious, while others occur while you least expect it.
Here are some examples of work-related eye injuries:
Chemical eye burns

Both highly acidic and highly alkaline substances are toxic to the eye and can cause chemical eye burns if they come into contact with the surface of the eye. Alkaline substances present the greatest risk. Such substances are most commonly found in the workplace, for example in laboratory chemicals or industrial cleaning products.

Top of line ophthalmologist office! I will absolutely be a repeat customer and highly recommend them to everyone.They are very thorough and professional. They were extremely efficient in getting me in an out very timely which is important! I saw Dr. Arnold and Dr. Estrin and they were clearly experienced to say the least. It takes a lot for me to say this, but they truly made me feel like family and that each patient matters. Thank you again Rand Eye Institute!

My boss who is an attorney and who is never happy with any company was very, very impressed with Rand's service. He encouraged me to get my eyes done by Dr. Rand at Rand Eye. "EXCELLENT staff and service from being picked up by transportation to surgery." "Love you all, great job" Thanks again.

Excellent doctors, excellent equipment, excellent comprehensive care, information and responsibility for the patients. The best of all is the experience and confidence that the patient gains after going through the whole process in order to make the decision to submit your visual ability in their hands. Two surgeries, one in each eye with excellent results. I recommend this place to anybody who values their sight and wants to see clearly.

I would not trust my vision to anyone else. They are always there for me when I need them even on an emergency basis. Surgery was very comfortable. Everyone there is professional.
