Patients frequently ask me about seeing spots in their vision. While most “spots” or “floaters” are not harmful, they may be an indication of a serious problem. It is always a good idea to check with an optometrist if you are noticing them more frequently or if you have sudden changes in your eyes or eyesight.
I thought I would share updates and tips on some of the medical conditions we often treat.
There are different types of pink eye (conjunctivitis): allergic, viral, and bacterial. We have an exciting new test to help diagnose viral conjunctivitis. It is nice to have a definitive diagnosis so antibiotics are properly prescribed.
TIP: If you have viral or bacterial conjunctivitis, the discharge from the eyes is highly contagious. Be sure to wash your hands especially after touching your eyes and do not to share face towels with anyone.
