Facts about Dry Eye

  • Ocular surface inflammation is a significant component to most symptomatic cases of dry eyes
  • There are three separate layers of the tear film that all need to work together properly to produce comfort and quality vision
  • The proper treatment of dry eye depends on what layer of the tear film is affected and why it’s being affected
  • treatment modalities range from artificial tears, steroids, immunosuppressants, Omega-3 essential fatty acids and plugs that stop the drainage of tears into the nose
  • Changing the tear film composition rather than the volume of tears is crucial
  • Dr. Reimbold takes this condition seriously, You won’t be sent home with the same bottle of tears. She follows a step-by-step logical research-based process with the latest in diagnostic testing to find you relief

Important facts about Glaucoma:

The medical treatment of Glaucoma is fairly straight forward but the greatest challenge of overall glaucoma management is making the determination of WHEN to initiate therapy and HOW aggressive to be in the management of the disease.

  • There are many different types of Glaucoma and many of them are treated in different ways
  • Most treatments include reducing the pressure, the more dance the glaucoma the more aggressive the treatment needs to be.
  • The general course of glaucoma is that the pressure is elevated too high for the optic nerve and the nerve fibers are pinched and damaged robbing the patient of their peripheral vision
  • Because the optic nerve is part of the brain there is no way to repair the nerve damage at this point
  • Many types of glaucoma are genetic but some are from trauma and other clauses like sleep apnea
