Remember Your Eyes When it Comes to Fighting the Signs of Aging

Ageing EyesIt’s commonplace for many people to take steps to fight common signs of aging. Americans spend billions of dollars each year to improve the way they look.  Far too many, however, forget about the steps they should take to protect how they see. The American Academy of Ophthalmology is reminding adults to start the fight against age-related vision loss early – long before they reach the golden years.

An estimated 43 million Americans will face vision loss or blindness from age-related eye diseases by 2020.Ophthalmologists, the medical doctors who treat eye diseases and conditions, recommend that adults following these sight-saving habits:

It’s all about the baseline
Get a baseline comprehensive eye exam, ideally when you turn 40. This is when age-related eye changes often begin to occur. During this medical eye exam, your ophthalmologist will check more than how well you see. He or she will also check for signs of common age-related eye diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration. None of these conditions have noticeable symptoms early on. If a disease is identified, an ophthalmologist can track it and provide treatment to help prevent it from getting worse.

MIGS - the new "sexy" in Glaucoma Surgery

istentdeviceWhat is Micro-Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS) - an Introduction

This field of new devices and procedures designed to be less invasive, is great news for glaucoma patients who are considering cataract surgery. One such microstent, roughly the size of an eyelash, can be placed into the eye’s drainage system during cataract surgery. It acts as a kind of scaffolding that helps to open and enlarge the drainage system. In so doing, the stent helps to lower intraocular pressure. This innovative device is similar in form and fashion to the stents used for heart conditions such as coronary artery disease.

The Eye Surgeons at Garden Route Eye Clinic are qualified to perform MIGS.
