Bionic Eye Market: Rise in Prevalence of Eye Diseases is expected to drive the market – BioSpace

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2021

Global Bionic Eye Market: Introduction

According to Encyclopedia Britannica, Inc., bionic eye is an electrical prosthesis, which is surgically implanted into a human eye in order to allow for the transduction of light, i.e. the change of light from the environment into impulses the brain can process in people who have sustained severe damage to the retina. The bionic eye comprises an external camera and transmitter and an internal microchip. The camera is mounted on a pair of eyeglasses, where it serves to organize the visual stimuli of the environment before emitting high-frequency radio waves. In the U.S., the FDA has approved just one commercially available bionic eye system. The device, called the Argus II Retinal Prosthesis System, was developed by a California-based company Second Sight Medical Products. Different bionic eye models take aim at different target areas in the visual pathway. Bionic eye implants work inside the existing eye structure or in the brain. These are designed to achieve functional vision goals as opposed to physical, cosmetic ones.

Key Drivers of Global Bionic Eye Market

Rise in Prevalence of Vision Loss

The global population has increased by 18.5% in 2002 over that in 1990. The population 50 years of age and older has increased by nearly 30%. Population increase is more prominent in developing countries. Health is the centerpiece of development and poverty alleviation continuing to eliminate avoidable blindness among the poorest of the poor is a moral imperative. According to The Lancet Global Health, a report estimated that in 2015, 36.0 million people were blind, 217 million had moderate and severe vision impairment, 188 million had mild vision impairment, and 667 million additional people had vision impairment from uncorrected presbyopia.

Glaucoma: A leading cause of irreversible blindness – The Times of India Blog

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2021

No one can dispute the value that our eyes hold in our lives. One of the most vital organs, a pair of good healthy eyes can not only help us safely and ably navigate the challenges in our day-to-day life but ensures a lifetime of attainment and self-realization. Conversely, a not-so-healthy pair of eyes can become such a debilitating handicap in our daily routine. While some minor as well as major eye diseases are fairly common and treatable, there are some which continue to pose a challenge to the ophthalmic community. Glaucoma is one of those eye conditions. If timely detection and treatment is not carried out, it can lead to an individual even losing his eyesight. In fact, glaucoma is one of the leading causes of irreversible blindness.

What is Glaucoma?

Glaucoma is a term used to depict a group of diseases which entail a progressive or irreversible damage to the optic nerve of the eye, which if untreated may lead to loss of sight. It is a result of the increased pressure inside the eye which usually happens because of the build-up of a fluid known as aqueous humor in the eye. As this fluid gets obstructed or blocked, the resultant increase in intraocular pressure can damage the optic nerve which in time can weaken the eyesight and eventually lead to complete loss of vision.

Mass screening doesnt help, opportunistic screening important

Unlike Cataract, which can be detected during mass screening of a given population, Glaucoma requires a patient to specifically visit an eye doctor. This visit could be for any eye condition when an opportunistic screening can reveal whether an individual has the dreaded eye condition or not. A comprehensive eye examination with a set of tests such as dilated eye exam (to widen pupils and view optic nerve), slit lamp exam (to view inside of eye), visual acuity test (to check for vision loss), tonometry (to evaluate eye pressure), gonioscopy (to check for eye drainage), pachymetry (to measure corneal thickness), optical coherence tomography (changes in optic nerve), optic nerve head examination (to examine loss of ganglion cells and their fibres), and visual field examination(to check for any peripheral vision loss) would need to be conducted in order to establish whether an individual has glaucoma or not.

Types of Glaucoma

Generally, there are three major types of glaucoma: primary open angle glaucoma (POAG), primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG) and Secondary glaucoma. POAG is the most common type and occurs when the drainage system gets choked and progresses imperceptibly over a long time. Then PACG, a more serious type, is the result of the iris being too close to the drainage canals in the cornea. In this, the eye pressure can rise suddenly due to complete blockage of the drainage angle and unless medically intervened immediately, the individual can lose his eyesight. In a variant called Normal Tension Glaucoma, the optic nerve is damaged without the eye pressure going beyond the average range and is caused by the abnormalities in the blood flow to the optic nerve, and structural weakness of the optic nerve tissue. NTG is not very common. Secondary glaucoma is caused by other diseases which may increase eye pressure leading to optic nerve damage. These include Pigmentary glaucoma, Pseudoexfoliativeglaucoma, traumatic glaucoma, neovascular glaucoma, Irido-Corneal Endothelial Syndrome and Congenital/Childhood glaucoma.

Signs and Symptoms of Glaucoma

Each type of glaucoma has its own signs and symptoms. For instance, POAG has no perceivable or visible symptoms in the early stages and in due course of time as the disease progresses, blind spots develop in the peripheral vision. Similarly, PACG exhibits no apparent symptoms as such and can lead to a sudden attack. Signs of an acute attack would include intense pain in the eye or forehead, foggy vision, redness in the eye, halos around eyes, nausea and vomiting. Again in NTG, blind spots emerge in the field of vision which is a symptom. The symptoms in Secondary glaucoma would depend on the additional disease which is responsible for glaucoma. For Childhood or Congenital glaucoma, a baby would show sensitivity to light and clouding of Cornea. Children are also likely to frequently rub their eyes.

Who are at risk?

Although it can afflict anyone, those with a family history, advanced age or with co-morbidities such as high blood pressure, heart disease or diabetes are more likely to be at risk of getting glaucoma. In addition, those who have been on corticosteroid medications for long, or have undergone certain eye surgeries are also more at risk. Importantly, those with normal eye pressure can also get glaucoma.

Treatment

Again, the line of treatment would depend on the symptoms, stage and type of glaucoma. Typically, there are three major forms of treatment: medication/eye drops, laser treatment and surgery. And often a combination of treatments is also followed. For instance, POAG is most often treated with a combination of eye drops and surgery. But PACG is treated with a laser procedure called iridotomy in which the doctor creates a small opening in your iris using a laser allowing fluid to flow through it, relieving eye pressure. Another laser procedure is called Trabeculoplasty which is used for POAG patients. However in some cases, operating room surgery is opted for. Trabeculectomy is an important surgery in which an opening in the white of the eye (sclera) is created whilea part of the trabecular meshwork is removed by the doctor. You must remember that surgery may require follow-up sessions and a repeat surgery may also not be impossible.For Infants and congenital glaucoma, surgery is the main treatment.

Therefore, glaucoma is aptly called the silent thief of sight. With 12 million people affected and nearly 1.2 million people being blind from the disease in India, mass-level awareness campaigns must be mounted throughout the country. Also, individuals of all age groups must subject themselves to a comprehensive eye examination periodically. Parents should be alert to their babys eye conditions.Because glaucoma simply doesnt give you a second chance.

Q5: First Friday will feature discussion on low vision – Stillwater News Press

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2021

Dr. Marshall Walker will be the guest speaker for Stillwater Medical Foundations First Friday presentation March 5.

Walker is an optometrist whose topic will be Low Vision and Vision Rehabilitation. He is the only board certified low vision specialist in north central Oklahoma. First Friday is still a virtual event, so it will begin its Facebook live stream noon Friday.

1.Can you tell us a little of your background?

I earned his doctorate of optometry with honors from Pennsylvania College of Optometry. I trained at the prestigious Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami, Florida and Feinbloom Low Vision Center in Philadelphia. Afterward, I completed a post-graduate residency in ocular disease and refractive surgery through Northeastern State University Oklahoma College of Optometry. I served as an assistant clinical professor at the Oklahoma College of Optometry and served at Indian Health Service Clinics throughout Northeastern Oklahoma before starting my practice at Stillwater Eyecare.

2. What are some highlights of your discussions?

Gain an understanding of the difference between low vision and blindness. Learn about the most common eye and brain conditions that can vision loss and how to avoid complications. Introduce assistive technologies to education attendees on ways to improve quality of life in individuals suffering vision impairment.

3. Can you give us an example of the kind of therapy involved in low-vision rehabilitation?

Vision rehabilitation is a team approach which includes a low vision specialist, occupational therapists, mental health professionals and social services coordinators. Different therapy recommendations depend on the needs of the individual patient. Specific rehabilitation therapies vary vastly and could be education of how to use a device to read text, or a training someone to navigate their environment with a white cane.

4. Whats a common misconception about eyesight?

Prevention is key. A common misconception about eyesight is a person will notice if they have a problem. There are many potentially blinding conditions that have no perceivable effects until the condition is advanced. This is why yearly comprehensive eye exams are so important.

5. Is there anything youd like us to know?

If someone has sudden vision change or loss, sudden eye pain or a red eye, they should call to be seen as soon as possible.

Seth ‘Scump’ Abner Signed by Oakley as its First Professional Esports Athlete – The Esports Observer

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2021

Some of the most recognizable traditional sports players in the world wear Oakley. Now, Oakley can add Call of Duty League All-Star Seth Scump Abner to its roster to go alongside other Oakley athletes such as Patrick Mahomes, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Erika Hara, and others. Abner, who currently plays for OpTic Chicago, is now the first-ever esports athlete to sign with the iconic sunglass maker. Abner will be relying on Oakleys first eye-wear solution developed specifically for gaming Prizm Gaming Lens Technology.

Why Oakley? The name speaks for itself. When you hear the word Oakley, you think of a very prestigious brand in the glasses space, Abner told The Esports Observer. I watch a ton of sports. I see Oakley all over the place. My favorite sport to watch is baseball and you see those players wearing them every day. Oakley is just an amazing brand, a very cool, and a very hip brand as well. I think Oakley just kinda speaks for itself.

Oakley, with roots already laid deep inside the traditional sports space, sees esports as another competitive space where players share in the pursuit of progression, giving it everything theyve got. Abner encapsulates that vision as he had had to overcome various vision problems in order to become the player he is today.

I cant see anything. Having glasses that help me see and are comfortable are the two most important things I need in a pair, Abner said. Playing at the highest level, I need to be able to see everything and react to everything perfectly with no discomfort. You dont want to have to worry about things inside of the game because of things outside of the game. These Oakleys are pretty much an attachment of me now.

Abner, who used to wear contacts which he said sometimes itch because of bad allergies, now says he wears glasses again. And the prescription lenses that come with a blue-blocking agent, have helped him tremendously.

I used to wear contacts quite a bit, but now I wear only glasses exclusively, Abner said. So again, its just really important and amazing that Ive found a pair that I really like helps with my eye strain. Its just as cool that the brand is Oakley.

Despite the ailments with allergies and eyesight, Abner has been able to dominate the Call of Duty esports scene. In fact, the two-time Major League Gaming (MLG) X Games gold medalist who was awarded the Best Console Player at the 2017 Esports Industry Awards is often referred to as The King.

Ive been wearing their product for probably two months now, Abner said. The prisms fit perfectly under my Turtle Beachs [headset]. With the Oakleys and the Turtle Beachs, I have no strain on the top of my ears, which after eight hours, you can imagine how much that would hurt. I havent had any issues with these so far and theyre just really comfortable and easy to wear while Im gaming.

However, it wasnt just Abners skill in playing Call of Duty that saw Oakley reach out to him for this partnership, but also his philanthropic endeavors. Abner has grown into a global ambassador for esports by interacting with his fans and followers through various forms of content creation. He has also participated in charity streams and recently took part in a philanthropic campaign to honor those battling COVID-19.

Optician’s home visit helped save Rhondda woman’s deteriorating eyesight – In Your Area

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2021

Mrs Beryl Close, from Tonypandy. Image:Freshwater.

Submitted by Freshwater on behalf of Specsavers

A Rhondda man was so concerned about his mother's eyesight and that it was affecting her mental health, that he arranged for an optician home visit during lockdown.

Beryl Close, 75, from Tonypandy in the Rhondda Valley, struggled with her mobility and when her eyesight started worsen during the lockdown. So much so that it began to have a big impact on her life.

Her son, Mike, got in touch with Specsavers, as he was concerned about his mums vision. She couldnt read or see the TV and he was worried that it was affecting her mental health.

During his visit to see Mrs Close, optometrist and director of home visits in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan for Specsavers, Jason Scaife found that she had bad cataracts in both eyes and needed surgery. Cataract removal surgery is a quick procedure, which takes between 15 to 45 minutes, and leaves patients with much brighter and clearer vision.

Having had her surgery at Nuffield Health Hospital in Cardiff Bay to remove the cataracts, Mrs Close has now made a full recovery.

Mr Scaife said: "Her whole demeanour was different after the operation. It became evidently clear that it was her sight problems that were causing her anxiety. She was back to her usual self after the procedure, which was heart-warming to see.

"Beryls story is yet another example of why primary health services cannot stall because of Covid-19. We completely understand why people may be anxious to seek treatment and medical advice while Covid-19 remains prevalent in our communities, which is why our staff both those working remotely as well as colleagues in Specsavers stores have worked hard to ensure we are Covid-secure at all times."

Specsavers staff use personal protective equipment (PPE) while visiting someones home and thoroughly sanitise all equipment and glasses frames between appointments.

Specsavers stores and home visits service in Wales currently remain open for all eye and hearing needs. Specsavers will adhere to each countrys industry guidance if and when changes to local rules are made.To find out more information, request an appointment or browse the online store, visit http://www.specsavers.co.uk/stores.

Americans Show New Interest In Virtual Eye Care Options, Finds 2nd Annual Vision Wellness Study – PRNewswire

Sunday, February 14th, 2021

BALTIMORE, Feb. 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ --Today,Versant Health, released the results of the 2nd annual Vision Wellness Study, which found Americans, in particular young adults under 40, are showing a new interest in the use of virtual technology and telemedicine for eye care.

The Vision Wellness Study surveyed consumers and health plan executives on their perceptions of eye care in a pandemic environment, including the value they place on eye care services and their beliefs about the impact of eye care on overall health.

Almost three quarters (74%) of respondents under 40 say having access to technology and tools for virtual visits would make them more likely to schedule a routine eye exam, compared to 67% of all respondents. More than one third (38%) of people under 40 say that being able to communicate remotely with eye doctors would have a high impact on seeing an eye doctor more often, compared to 34% of people ages 40-59 and just 15% of people ages 60 and over. Health plan executives also see the value of telemedicine76% of those surveyed believe members' use of alternatives to face-to-face contact with eye doctors will increase substantially or somewhat as a result of the pandemic.

"With COVID-19 as the backdrop, patients are showing an increased desire for convenient and easily-accessible eye care using remote technology," said Dr. Mark Ruchman, Chief Medical Officer at Versant Health. "As we look to the future of eye care, ocular telemedicine will play an important role in improving access to care, as patients are provided more ways to address their eye health on their own terms."

Perceptions of Eye Care Value vs. Costs

Overall, Americans are increasingly recognizing the importance of eye care, with 81% of respondents receiving an eye exam in the past two years, compared to 77% who said the same in the inaugural study. For all respondents, including those who have not seen an eye doctor in the past two years, the ability to identify eye diseases and the ability to identify other serious health conditions, such as diabetes, ranked as the top two services that would make them more likely to schedule an eye doctor appointment, supporting the role of eye health as a window into overall health.

Of people who have not received an eye exam in the past two years, 37% say it's due to cost and affordability, pointing to a need to dispel misconceptions about the costs of eye care.

"Members are realizing that comprehensive eye exams can provide a clearer picture of their overall health," said Elizabeth Klunk, RN, BSN, CCM-R, Senior Vice President of Medical Management at Versant Health. "In fact, eye exams are one of the lowest cost and least invasive methods at looking at whole body health for early disease detection."

The Social Determinants of Eye Health

Despite the low cost of eye care, barriers to access persist, particularly for people in lower income households81% of all respondents say they have received an eye exam in the past two years, but only 68% of people in households with incomes under $35,000 say the same. When it comes to insurance, 69% of respondents say someone in their household has vision insurance, and that drops to 61% for people with incomes under $35,000.

While 43% of people with incomes under $35,000 say affordability is the reason why they don't go to the eye doctor as often as they'd like, health plan executives say transporation is the key obstacle for members' access to eye care services (88%), highlighting a disconnect. Where health plan executives are concerned about physically getting members to eye doctors' offices, members are more concerned with the costs of care.

"The future of eye care requires us to implement tools that can increase access to care for all patient populations, especially those who are more likely to face systemic barriers. During this pandemic, the rapid advancement of technology has helped us to better meet the needs of vulnerable populations, and we are committed to continuing to explore how it makes healthy sight more accessible," said Klunk.

MethodologyVersant Health's 2nd annual Vision Wellness Study, conducted between October 30 and November 17, 2020, included two distinct surveys fielded by Market Measurement, a custom market research firm. The consumer survey comprises 525 responses from consumers 18 and older. The healthcare plan executive survey comprised 17 responses from health plan executives across the U.S. The survey covered their opinions on routine eye care, access to eye exams, preventative health measures, care costs and other topics related to managed vision care.

His vision suddenly vanished in his left eye. The diagnosis was startlingand life-threatening. – The Daily Briefing

Sunday, February 14th, 2021

When the vision of his left eye suddenly clouded over, a 57-year-old man was launched into a maze of hospital testing, imaging, and examinations untildays lateran in-depth eye exam revealed the startling and life-threatening cause of his partial blindness, Lisa Sanders writes for the New York Times Magazine.

In September 2020, the patient realized while washing his face that he could no longer see correctlywhile his right eye seemed fine, an "impenetrable gray cloud" hovered over the upper half of everything he could see from his left eye, Sanders writes.

The patient's wife immediately took him to Bridgeport Hospital, where a physician took down all his symptoms: blurry eyesight, a throbbing headache, and pain on the left side of his chest.

Immediately, the doctor ordered an EKG and a blood test in case of heart attack, but the tests came back normal. So did a round of additional testsan CT scan, an MRI, and more blood teststhat the doctor ordered to rule out a potential stroke, tumor, or temporal arteritis, a disease that can destroy arteries in the brain and eye.

The doctor hypothesized the blindness could stem from a migraine, but even after the patient's headache finally cleared up, his partial blindness lingered.

The hospital had ruled out potential causes of blindness stemming from the brain or the area between the brain and eyebut it didn't have the technology to do an in-depth exam of the eye itself. For that procedure, the patient was sent to Jay Wang, a retinal specialist at Yale New Haven Hospital.

After several hours of testing and imaging, Wang identified the problem: While the vessels in the patient's right eye were "perfect," the vessels of the left eye were irregular. Some were brightly spotted in the imaging and others nearly invisibleincluding the artery that supplies blood to the fovea, a section of the retina that is integral to clear vision.

As Wang explained, the imaging indicated that the man had suffered a stroke, with tiny clots of blood travelling through his bloodstream before lodging in his eye, where they had irreparably damaged his vision.

But the man's medical mystery was by no means solved, Wang cautioned: They had to find out where those clots had originated from, or else it could happen again.

Wang sent the patient to Yale New Haven's ED for an echocardiogram. While there, a fourth-year medical student shadowing the case, Joshua Hyman, asked the patient if he could do an initial scan before the official echocardiogram just as a learning exercise. The patient agreed.

But when Hyman placed the ultrasound probe between the patient's third and fourth rib, he didn't see what he should have seen: "the light gray muscles of the two chambers on the left side of the heart squeezing around a dark center of black that is the blood," Sanders writes. Rather, Hyman saw a kiwi-sized "bright ball zooming back and forth across the screen with every heartbeat."

Hyman immediately shared the results with his attending physician, Karen Jubanyik, who confirmed his suspicions: The patient had a myxoma, a rare type of slow-growing tumor, often found in the heart. The tumor had likely been developing for 20 years or so, and the tumor's rough surface provided a haven where blood could pool and eventually form clotsclots that could be launched any time tumor lurched side-to-side.

According to Hyman and Jubanyik, the patient was lucky. Tumors like these, they explained, often presented in cases of stroke or heart attack, but sometimes can grow large enough to block the blood's ability to flow out from the heart, causing sudden death. So far, the patient had only lost some of his vision, they explained, but he needed immediate surgery to excise the tumor before further damage could be done.

Three days later, the patient underwent a successful surgery, and today, he says he feels healthy enough to exercise. While his vision isn't perfect, the patient added, it seems better than it was when the symptoms first hit.

Wang, who had followed his patient's journey, said he was amazed by what the providers in the ED had discovered and grateful the operation went well. "As an ophthalmologist," he said, "I'm used to saving vision. It's not every day you get to save a life" (Sanders, New York Times, 2/4).

Long holidays can be a strain on the eyes, doctor says –

Sunday, February 14th, 2021

By Chiu Shu-yu and Jonathan Chin / Staff reporter, with staff writer

Intense eye use during long vacations could endanger the eye health of children and adults, a New Taipei City-based ophthalmologist said.

Chu Hsueh-yen (), a doctor at Composite Municipal Hospital in Tucheng (), said that eyestrain from intense use of electronic devices while on vacation could damage vision and lead to myopia in children.

Children with normal eyesight had been observed to have myopia readings of minus-2 diopters following a summer or winter break, Chu said, adding that a myopia reading of minus-5 diopters or higher is linked to increased risks of glaucoma, cataracts and retinal detachment.

Excessive eye use could also lead to dry eyes, a condition increasingly recognized as a disease of civilization. Its symptoms include oversensitivity to light, swelling, blurred vision and tears, he said.

People with dry eyes have suppressed their blink reflex and the normal secretions of the tear duct, he said, adding that untreated dry eyes could lead to corneal injury or vision-affecting corneal ulcers.

When using devices in poorly lit conditions, the pupils dilate and allow more blue light to reach the retina, which could lead to macular degeneration, a serious condition that causes missing spots in the field vision and distortions of shapes, he said.

People should take a rest and put on a warm compress as soon as they feel eye soreness or discomfort, he said, adding that they should see a doctor if the sensations do not go away.

Reading, studying, playing with blocks and using electronic devices are activities that could tax a childs eyes and potentially cause myopia, so parents should make the child rest for five minutes for every 30 minutes of activity, he said.

Children using atropine eye drops a prescription used to control myopia progression should always wear sunglasses when engaging in outdoor activities, or risk greater harm to the eyes from direct sunlight, he said.

Styes are another common post-Lunar New Year affliction which usually stem from a combination of festive comfort foods and lack of sleep, he said.

People can use a warm, clean towel as a compress to treat the condition, but should consult a doctor if the symptom does not improve, he said.

Eating less greasy or sweet food and maintaining good personal hygiene can help prevent such problems, he added.

Comments will be moderated. Keep comments relevant to the article. Remarks containing abusive and obscene language, personal attacks of any kind or promotion will be removed and the user banned. Final decision will be at the discretion of the Taipei Times.

Dr. Julie Steinhauer in Glen Carbon Reveals Treatment Procedure For Vision Compromised By Hypertension and Stroke – RiverBender.com

Sunday, February 14th, 2021

GLEN CARBON Dr. Julie Steinhauer, OD, FCOVD, owner of Vision For Life, and one of a select group of functional vision doctors in the nation, says those with hypertension, known as high blood pressure, may often suffer from undiagnosed vision issues. Left unchecked hypertension can cause blurriness, double vision or a complete loss in one part of the visual field.

Severe hypertension can restrict blood and oxygen to the brain causing an artery to either be blocked or burst. It can induce a stroke, lead to heart and kidney issues, and potentially eye disease.

Those who suffer from hypertension, and their families, should be aware of symptoms of a stroke. According to the National Institute of Health (NIH) website these can include sudden numbness or weakness of the face; weakness in the arm or leg especially on one side of the body; confusion and trouble speaking or understanding speech; issues with walking, dizziness, loss of balance and coordination; and problems seeing in one or both eyes.

Dr. Steinhauer, in her YouTube video How Hypertension Or Stroke Affect Vision, said a stroke will often damage a visual pathway causing a loss in the vision field. Eyesight becomes altered. Some may have significant loss of vision, blurriness or a blind spot. In many cases the individual doesnt even realize they have suffered a vision loss after the stroke has occurred.

According to Steinhauer, family members should be aware of these symptoms if they see a loved one acting differently, especially following a stroke diagnosis. They may have blurred vision while watching TV, or what we call visual neglect where the individual ignores stimuli on either the left or right side. Other symptoms include problems when reading, and bumping into objects while walking.

A thorough diagnosis can reveal any eye damage that has occurred as a result of a stroke and best course of treatment. In many cases the eye-brain connection can be retrained using a light therapy called Syntonics. This helps ignite the neurons in the brain that were turned off as a result of the stroke. The patient can gain back some of the normal visual field. An eye doctor can properly evaluate and diagnose vision loss, no matter the age of the patient.

Dr. Steinhauer said functional vision therapy helps to regain 30% to 80% of a stroke patients vision loss. Timing is important because the quicker therapy begins post stroke the better the chances for more visual recovery.

The goal is to let people know that they can regain their vision due to severe hypertension or after a stroke. Utilizing proper therapy we can help improve their ability to read, write, and work, and enjoy life to its fullest.

I want to be responsible for improving eye health on a national scale – AOP

Sunday, February 14th, 2021

I remember being fascinated by a programme that I saw on the Discovery Channel when I was a teenager.It showed the concept of attaching a camera to the brain of people who are visually impaired, to help them see again. That really embedded an interest in the concept of vision and research for me.

I actually applied for human cybernetics and got accepted at Reading University. But I came to the conclusion that the technology was in its infancy. I decided it would probably be wiser to study vision and vision research first, and then come back to the technology aspect when the other parts of that ambition became more of a reality.

As I learned more about optometry, I was genuinely fascinated by the career and the way that you can always learn more. There's the psychology of the neuroscience of vision and perception, there's the physics of the lenses, there's the medicine and pharmacology, and pathology and therapeutics, not to mention the social psychology of patient compliance and customer service, the discipline, or the human resources aspect, and all the various aspects of business planning, from managing budgets to overheads, strategy planning (which we've had to do a lot of during COVID-19), and knowing about investments for future success. I think it's a brilliant career choice.

I'm from Northern Ireland, and I moved to Glasgow Caledonian and did my degree there. I went on to do my pre-reg in Boots at Princes Street in Edinburgh. Halfway through that my supervisor moved over to the Gyle, so I followed her to the Boots Opticians there.

I think it's a brilliant career choice

I was then offered regular employment with Dolland and Aitchison (D&A), because I used to do locum days there. My wife and I were looking to buy a home at the time, and Edinburgh prices were disproportionately high. We were able to find a three-bedroom house in Dunfermline, for the same price as a one bedroom flat in Edinburgh. So, we moved to Fife and commuted about an hour each way. And then Specsavers offered me some work in their Dunfermline branch, five minutes walk away from my house.

Andy and Grace, the directors, were welcoming and friendly, and they enabled the staff to be the best they could be. While I've been managed by good people in the past, I'd never received that sort of leadership and management before. It was a delight to work there, especially coming from cultures where I had to present a business case just to get an Amsler chart replaced or to get a decent stereopsis test.

I started my IP quite early on. My son was born in 2012 and then my daughter was born prematurely, so I had to put it on the back burner twice. In terms of clinical experience, the hospital could only offer half days. So that meant almost a whole year of clinical experience before I had enough under my belt to be eligible to sit the final exam. I think I ended up finishing in 2017.

I think the Scottish optometry system is above anywhere else. I'm really proud to be part of it

At the time I was accepted to do my PhD with Aston University. Then the opportunity to open up a branch in Morningside in Edinburgh came up, and I decided to seize the opportunity.

Owning a business requires a lot more work: I was working six, seven-day weeks for the first four or five years. My practice has never had a test time shorter than 30 minutes. At present I'm doing up to 45-minute appointment slots due to PPE and COVID-19. In Scotland, we have a first port of call system where GPs won't see you; everybody has to go to the opticians if there's a problem with their eyes. So, often I have to prescribe medications for emergency walk-ins. We have a clinic that runs for about 45 minutes for that.

I still want to contribute to vision research, in the long term, and help people with a severe visual impairment to see again with the help of technology. I've started my journey towards that: I'm studying my master's in investigative ophthalmology and vision research, and I intend to go on to do a PhD in vision research and neuro development at some point.

I think the Scottish optometry system is above anywhere else. I'm really proud to be part of it. That's part of the reason why I became vice chair of Optometry Scotland. Its world-leading, and I want to be part of that.

Nutrient-rich foods that help strengthen your eyesight

By: Mui Redaction

February 11, 2021 07:42 am

A good diet helps the proper functioning of our body and a very important part is our eyes. Therefore, a deteriorated lifestyle can contribute to accelerate the appearance of, for example, cataracts or macular degeneration.

It is essential to incorporate foods rich in nutrients and antioxidants, beneficial for the eyes, into our diet. In addition, they prevent the appearance or acceleration of any ocular pathology that threatens a progressive loss of vision. In general, fruits and vegetables are the main foods that will help us achieve better health in our eyes.

Blueberries

Blueberries are a fruit that will undoubtedly help us to preserve our visual health. Among other properties such as the prevention of kidney stones or urinary incontinence, they increase our visual ability.

The secrets of this fruit came to light when in the second world war. The British pilots before flying consumed it when they noticed when they did a better adaptation to the light.

This fruit contains flavonoids, a kind of antioxidants that prevent the accumulation of free radicals that cause aging of the ocular cells and internal injuries of the eye. Other similar fruits can be raspberry, blackberry or grape.

Broccoli, great contribution of vitamin C

It is one of the best known superfoods. This vegetable helps us mainly to protect our eyes from the sun due to its abundance in vitamin C, water, fiber and few calories.

Scientific studies have shown that daily consumption of broccoli can increase the density of the macular pigment in the eye by up to 30%.

It is a fundamental part located in the retina to be able to perceive colors and movement. In addition, eating broccoli helps lower our cholesterol and increase iron levels. For all this it is considered one of the foods good for the eyes.

Carrots, source of vitamin A

Another of the foods that improve eyesight and that has multiple properties. In addition to helping to prevent cataracts, thanks to their great contribution to lens cells, they reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases.

The carotenoids that compose it are responsible for this advantageous contribution. Likewise, vegetables with orange, yellow or red color are also rich in carotenoids, so it will be good to incorporate them into the diet.This vegetable will also help us to have better night vision thanks to its richness in vitamin A, which directly influences the functioning of the retina.

Spinach

Like the previous beneficial foods for vision, spinach helps prevent age-related pathologies. In addition, they favor the protection of the eyes against sunlight and cataracts thanks to lutein and zeaxanthin, antioxidants that compose it. In addition, being rich in carotenoids helps prevent cancer.

Patient receives Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery to reduce chance of losing eyesight – crawfordcountynow.com

Saturday, February 6th, 2021

Ongoing Series: Seeing Life More Clearly

Submitted by Ohio Eye Associates

Ronald Nastasi learned eight years ago that he had glaucoma a common eye condition and one of the leading causes of blindness. Although his condition was mild at that time, he knew that if he didnt start taking proper care of his eyes, the disease had the potential to become severe.

This could sneak up on you, and then usually its too latethe damage is done. There wont be any symptoms until you actually have irreversible damage, Nastasi said.

Glaucomas are a group of conditions that cause damage to the optic nerve, often due to elevated eye pressure. At the time, Nastasis primary eye doctor prescribed daily eye drops, and tried noninvasive laser treatments to reduce his eye pressure. While this therapy was initially successful, over the years they found that these were only working for Nastasis left eye. His right eye pressure continued to rise, and Nastasi found himself being told to use drops six times a day.

At this point, Nastasis eye doctor recommended he see a glaucoma specialist, worried he may start losing his vision. Nastasi wanted to stay local, and after doing extensive research, he chose to see Jonathan M. Skarie, MD, PhD at Ohio Eye Associates. Skarie is a local ophthalmologist and the only fellowship trained glaucoma specialist in the Mansfield area.

Skarie met with Nastasi for an evaluation. He confirmed Nastasis right eye had a very elevated eye pressure and noted signs of optic nerve damage. At this point they discussed glaucoma surgery. Skarie gave Nastasi the option of having XEN Gel Stent surgery a recently developed surgical implant designed to lower eye pressure in glaucoma patients.

(XEN Gel) doesnt require stitches in the eye like the old kind where they put these drains and tubing in or made incisions in your eyes. This is very minimal, and thats why (eye doctors) really like it. Its not much risk to the eye, Nastasi said.

Skarie, whos been with Ohio Eye Associates since 2017, is a cataract and glaucoma surgeon. He specializes in all aspects of glaucoma medical, laser and surgical care, in addition to managing complex cataracts. He is trained in the latest advances in glaucoma surgical options, including Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS) techniques, such as the XEN Gel Stent.

MIGS options have really changed the way we approach glaucoma management. In the past, the only surgical options for glaucoma were much more invasive and high risk surgeries that were often uncomfortable for the patient. While these types of surgeries are still required in certain cases, we now have a wide range of options that are safer, offer easier recovery and are effective across a broad range of glaucoma types and severity, Skarie said.

Glaucoma becomes more common with age, though there are rare, aggressive forms that occur in younger adults and even children. Fortunately, these more aggressive types of glaucoma are often picked up during childhood vision screens or eye care visits for glasses, according to Skarie.

The biggest challenge of glaucoma is that the vast majority of cases are asymptomatic until late in disease when severe damage has already occurred. Glaucoma is usually only identified during an eye exam. Per Skarie, the American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends regular visits to the eye doctor starting at age 40, even if you have no known eye or medical problems.

A comprehensive, dilated eye exam should identify if you have glaucoma or if you are at high risk of developing it. If it is caught early, it can usually be easily managed and vision loss can be avoided, Skarie said.

Nastasi recently underwent the minimally invasive surgery and sailed through it. Skarie will continue to monitor his condition throughout the postoperative period. He only needed a week of limitations on activities, but he felt back to normal by the next day.

Nastasi is pleased with Skaries work and the level of care hes given throughout.

Dr. Skarie explained (the surgery) all the way through to me and I have follow up instructions, which were heavily detailed, Nastasi said. Im very confident in the choice (Skarie) made with my eyes.With onsite eye surgery and knowledgeable eye doctors and surgeons available at Ohio Eye, they are able to offer an extensive array of vision services.Jonathan M. Skarie, MD, PhD, is a local ophthalmologist and the only fellowship trained glaucoma specialist in the Mansfield area.

At Ohio Eye Associates, our team of optometrists and ophthalmologists work together to create a circle of care that includes eye exams, treatment of eye diseases, surgeries, and postoperative care. Youll have experts dedicated to achieving the best outcomes at each step in your eye care journey. Our location on South Walnut Street in Bucyrus is accepting new patients.

Trucker wants solution to ‘disheartening’ obstacle in getting an eye exam during pandemic – Yahoo News Canada

Saturday, February 6th, 2021

Lawmakers from Canadas federal opposition Conservative Party have embarked on a campaign to place a legal and environmental dispute in Michigan over the Line 5 oil pipeline at the feet of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Several Conservative MPs have been sharing an image on social media that warns of an impending Liberal pipeline failure if the Line 5 pipeline, running through the environmentally sensitive Straits of Mackinac, is shut down a decision that was taken months ago by Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, and that Enbridge is currently challenging in U.S. federal court. The Calgary-based energy company is seeking an injunction to stop the state from revoking the pipelines 1953 easement, which Whitmer said she did after the company refused to take action to protect the Great Lakes, and repeatedly violated the terms of the easement by ignoring structural problems with its aging, dented pipeline. While this legal drama is playing out, Conservatives are also urging their followers to sign a petition that calls on Trudeau to appeal to U.S. President Joe Biden to intervene in the pipeline dispute in order to prevent Whitmer from following through with her decision. Conservative Party Leader Erin O'Toole also wrote an op-ed in the National Post accusing the Liberals of being silent on the matter and suggesting the pipeline was not a priority for the prime minister. On Thursday, his party called for a special House of Commons committee that would address Line 5, among other Canada-U.S. issues. Trudeau, however, has said in Parliament that the federal government and Canadas ambassador in Washington have been advocating for Line 5 to U.S. officials. Transport Minister Omar Alghabra also revealed Feb. 3 he has spoken with U.S. Transport Secretary Pete Buttigieg about the pipeline. Line 5 is a vital source of fuel for homes and businesses on both sides of the border, said Trudeau on Feb. 3. That is something we have argued strongly, and will continue to argue strongly, with members of the U.S. administration. Our ongoing engagement with the Biden administration and with partners in the United States on this and many issues continues to be on the front burner. Whitmer said she was ending the easement because Enbridge was imposing an unacceptable risk of a catastrophic oil spill in the Great Lakes. The pipeline lies exposed at the bottom of a busy shipping channel in the straits, she said, vulnerable to anchor strikes, similar dangerous impacts, and the inherent risks of pipeline operations. A 2018 study by Michigan Techs Great Lakes Research Center said a worst-case oil spill would affect over 643 kilometres of shoreline, releasing up to 58,000 barrels of crude oil into the Great Lakes and putting dozens of species and thousands of acres at risk. A 2016 University of Michigan study showed a majority of open water on Lake Huron and 15 per cent of open water in Lake Michigan could be affected. Critics also point to a history of actions by Enbridge to fortify the dual pipes that run along the bottom of the straits, including using anchor supports to hold the pipes in place. They note incidents that the pipes have faced, like being dented by an anchor in 2018, and argue the 67-year-old pipeline has outlived its lifespan. Green Party Leader Annamie Paul said she had no reason to doubt the results of the research that informed Whitmers decision. We know that the line is very old, we know it has begun to deteriorate, we know that its dented in places, we know it would be catastrophic if there was a major oil spill with that line, so I am sure she has taken all of that into account, Paul said. Enbridge has insisted that the worst-case oil spill scenario is extraordinarily unlikely to happen and has touted its safety measures, including regular inspections of the pipeline and 24-hour monitoring of the straits crossing. The company is also moving forward with building what it considers a safer tunnel under the straits to house the pipeline. The Great Lakes Tunnel will encase a replacement section of Line 5 well below the lakebed, eliminating the risk of an anchor strike and virtually eliminating the potential of any (oil) release from Line 5 into the straits, said Enbridge spokesperson Ryan Duffy. There has not yet been a court date set for the case, Duffy said Feb. 2. We would prefer to meet and come to a resolution, and we continue to offer to meet with the state to resolve any differences, he said. OToole declined to answer questions for this story through his director of communications. Paul said Canada was at a crossroads in many respects, and needs to be planning for a green recovery. She said she hoped the Conservatives and all other parties join the Greens in preparing for a sustainable future that leaves no one behind. In that we join the United States and its new president, President Biden, and his commitment to moving towards a green recovery. We join the 27 countries of the European Union, and many of our international peers who have decided that the future is green, the future is in clean tech and renewables, and the investments we should be making are investments in those sectors rather than in sectors that are in an irreversible decline, she said. That is something we do on behalf of people in Canada, and in particular, those workers out in the oilpatch, and in provinces that are particularly impacted by the decline in that sector. Line 5 carries Western Canadian oil to Ontario, where it supplies refineries that produce gasoline and other fossil fuels, and feeds another pipeline that heads to Quebec. Conservatives are warning of fuel shortages, higher fuel prices and job losses linked to the industry if Line 5 closes; 6,500 good-paying jobs in Sarnia, Ontario are on the line, OToole wrote in his op-ed. It is unclear to what extent this will materialize. Sarnia Mayor Mike Bradley has suggested the number of potential job losses in his city would be closer to 3,000, but he has also said he cant estimate how many jobs would actually be lost if alternative sources like rail and trucks were used. That is what Imperial Oil, which runs a Sarnia refinery, is looking at doing, according to a report in the Globe and Mail. The energy company has already laid out plans to obtain crude oil through other pipelines, or by moving it on ships or by rail. Paul said she understood the implications for Canada, but it was a false choice for politicians of any stripe to portray the Line 5 pipeline battle as a choice between jobs and the environment. There are those who benefit from creating those false, binary choices. We know that we protect ourselves the best, that we create more jobs, if we protect our environment as well and we know that we cannot survive without a healthy environment.

Glasses to Suit Your Nine-to-Five – Onrec

Saturday, February 6th, 2021

Choosing the right frames for different occasions is part of being a glasses wearer. Were all familiar with using our glasses as a fashion accessory as much as we use them to see.

But how do we go about choosing glasses for work? There are many considerations, and not all of them are fashion related. Lets take a look.

Progressive lenses are your fast-track ticket to all-day vision (see a selection of progressive lenses for inspiration). What do we mean by all-day vision? If you have a long-sighted or short-sighted prescription from the optician, you will find that your glasses are only useful for one distance (i.e., focusing on things up close or far away). Many people turn to bi-focal lenses to deliver the multifunctionality they need. But theres only one problem

Bi-focal lenses were invented in 1760. They come with a cumbersome line across the middle of the lens and there is a definitive cut off between the lower half of the lens for close viewing and the top half of the lens for distance viewing. There must be a better way?

This is where progressive lenses and all-day vision come to the rescue. Instead of two lenses, progressive lenses blend effortlessly from distance focus to close up focus. Depending on whether you gaze through the upper, mid, or lower part of the lens, you can focus at all distances (without the tell-tale line across your glasses!).

Your choice of lenses comes down to your eyesight. You cant control which lenses are perfect for you. But something you can control is your choice of frame shape and size.

There are multiple frame shapes, but every frame fits into one of three categories. There are rimless frames, semi-rimless, or full-frames. Basically, is the lens surrounded by a frame, partially surrounded, or completely frameless.

Rimless frames are lightweight. They are suited to long working hours where chunkier frames would otherwise cause discomfort on the bridge of the nose and on top of the ears.

If you choose to have a rim, be aware that no matter which style you choose (e.g., round, cat eye, retro square, browline) the thickness of your frames says a lot about your personality. If youre someone who is drawn to conversations and meeting new people, thicker frames can help announce your presence. Conversely, those who value their privacy may prefer streamlined, more conservative designs.

Continuing the theme of choosing frames to suit your character, color says a lot. Without going into a horoscope style breakdown of every hue in the rainbow, we can group the options into more useless lists.

For example, eye-catching colors such as red and bright blue give the impression of someone who has opinions theyd like to share. Whereas more muted greys and silvers might help create a more mindful persona. The choice is yours. Think about who you are and what you want to say about yourself.
