The Sun, the Sand, the Pterygium

People who spend a lot of time outdoors, especially out on the beautiful Oregon Coast or Hood River, can sometimes develop an eye condition known as pterygium. It involves the growth of pink, fleshy tissue on the conjunctiva (white part of the eye), usually on the side toward the nose. The cause of pterygium isn’t […]

Your Contacts Shouldn’t Be Sleeping Beauties

Today’s soft contact lenses are quite remarkable little devices. They can correct for wide-ranging refractive errors; they can even correct for astigmatism. And they’re so comfortable we often forget we even have them in. They’re a far cry from the original contact lenses made of blown glass way back in 1888. But that comfort also […]

Changing Out the Front of Your Eye

Using a Laser to Fight Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetes and the health of your eyes aren’t a match made in heaven. Various eye conditions can stem from high blood sugar levels of diabetes: diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and cataracts. Diabetic retinopathy is the most common cause of vision loss among those with diabetes. It affects approximately 1 out of every 3 adults with diabetes. […]


Signs of Cataracts

The development of cataracts, the eye disease in which the clear lens of the eye becomes cloudy or opaque, is quite common. By the age of 65, over 90 percent of people have a cataract. Half of the people between the ages of 75 and 85 have lost some vision due to a cataract. Fortunately, […]
