Why we focus on ocular wellness
The eye, the brain and the body are one and the same.
A sick eye, especially in chronic conditions, does not occur in isolation, but is a result of a sick body.
Most of the eye diseases we see every day are lifestyle diseases and can be modulated. Preventing these diseases is more effective than treating them once they occur. It is also simple, but it is not easy.
It is easy to take a pill, get an injection or have surgery. It is so much harder (at first) but so much better to eat healthily, exercise regularly, reduce stress and/or improve response to it, control device use, etc…
The eye and the rest of the body are very closely related. You can’t really hope taking a cholesterol pill and a blood pressure pill will really keep you healthy if you’re eating fast food three times a week. Similarly, getting laser treatments for bleeding in the eye won’t really help if you don’t control your diabetes.
We want to help you and your loved ones protect and empower your eyes from birth through life. Many common thieves of sight can be caught in or before the act with thorough eye exams and other detection methods. These include macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, dry eye and even myopia (which increases the likelihood of most of these others).
Let us show you how. Call today and arrange for a consultation.
