Welcome to The Latest in Eye Health

If you’re reading this, it means you’re doing something proactive for your health today: learning. And that’s a very good thing.

In our new Covid-tinted world, it’s more important than ever that patients take good care of their health, including their ocular health. Healthy eyes are important not only for your vision, as crucial as that is. The eyes offer an amazing view into your body's systems and whether they're functioning properly or not. Brain tumors, stroke-causing plaques, diabetes – these are just a few of the medical conditions that often first come to light during an ophthalmology exam.

So I’m pleased to introduce this new section of my website, The Latest, in which I’ll be posting detailed information about the eye conditions and procedures patients ask about most. Articles will usually offer a quick summary followed by a Deeper Dive section, which expands upon the topic in greater detail.

One of the most exciting aspects of ophthalmology is its constantly advancing technology. New surgery and treatment options are emerging all the time. So check back here regularly for the latest innovations in vision health, surgical techniques, and research.

I look forward to sharing information with you! In the meantime, keep wearing that mask, washing your hands, and looking out for your health. 

You’re doing good.
