Taking care of your eyes is extremely important. There are plenty of eye conditions that can sneak up on you, and the best method of prevention is to make sure you visit your eye doctor as often as possible. Many eye conditions yield little to no symptoms during their earliest stages, but they can still be identified and diagnosed during a routine eye exam. Glaucoma is one such condition that if not treated can lead to deteriorating vision. If you have glaucoma or at risk, then visit us here at Orange Coast Eye Center where our Fountain Valley eye surgeons can provide you with the treatment you need.
It is recommended that everyone schedule regular eye appointments to make sure that their eye health is up to par. Those who are at risk for developing eye conditions due to their age, family medical history or have other medical conditions, such as diabetes, should make sure that they schedule these appointments more regularly. Glaucoma is an eye disease of the eye that is associated with increased eye pressure, resulting in a gradual loss of peripheral vision. Visiting an eye doctor regularly can let you know whether you are at risk for developing the disease and whether you should be closely monitored for it, which can help prevent the issue from worsening. These visits can also inform you and your eye doctor whether medical action is necessary, such as surgery. Here at Orange Coast Eye Center, our Fountain Valley eye surgeons, Dr. Lincoln L. Manzi, Dr. Jared R. Younger, and Dr. Veronica L. Woi, can provide you with the treatment you need, even SLT laser treatment if necessary. SLT is also known as selective laser trabeculoplasty. This method is used to drain fluid from the eye, lessening the amount of pressure in the eye.
Here at Orange Coast Eye Center, our Fountain Valley eye surgeons can typically provide SLT treatment without hospital admittance. The procedure can be performed safely here in our offices. This treatment is especially helpful for patients who experience little to no effect with medication. If you are currently living with glaucoma or have any of the known risk factor, then schedule an appointment with us today to make sure your eyes are as healthy as can be.
Are you tired of your eyes failing to be protected by the natural defenses of your body? Often times your body can fail to give your eyes the safety they need to blink away particles and invasive objects when they fail to grow enough lashes. Inadequate lashes are more than just a cosmetic problem, but can truly put your eyes at rick. Fortunately, the medical field has recognized the need to make lashes fuller and longer without the need for mascara ever again. To get the beautiful and healthy lashes you long for, you only need pay a visit to your local Fountain Valley eye doctor at the state of the art practice of the Orange Coast Eye Center and ask if Latisse treatments are right for you.
Latisse is a topical medication utilized to treat patients who suffer from an inadequate amount of eyelashes. This medication works through a basis in a compound called Bimatoprost. This ingredient works to make your lashes more noticeable by working to make your current eyelashes thicker and darker. Not only does Bimatoprost work to make your current lashes stand out more, but it actively works to increase the growth rate of lashes, as it is very similar to a chemical your body naturally produces in order to do so, known as prostaglandin. One of the best parts about Latisse is that, unlike many optical cosmetic treatments offered at your trusted Fountain Valley eye doctor, this unique method of eyelash treatment can be applied in your own home once it has been prescribed. Be sure to read your pamphlet before applying, and take care to discuss with your doctor your current optical health. Bimatoprost is also used to treat glaucoma, and as such patients who suffer from the illness should take care to never allow the Latisse medication to enter your eyes. Application should always begin by carefully washing your face. Remove your makeup and contact lenses, and be sure to wait at least 15 minutes before inserting contact lenses after applying. Simply place one drop of Latisse medication on the applicator provided, and then swipe the applicator along the skin of your upper lid at the base of your eyelashes, moving from the inner corner to the outer. All it takes is use once a day to see results in two weeks or less.
