Dr. Annie Quach  answers frequently asked questions.
 
Q: How old does my child have to be for contacts?
 
A: There is not an age requirement for contacts. The most important factors are the responsibility and maturity levels of the child as to whether they are ready for contacts. As long as the child can demonstrate a good ability to insert and remove the contacts on their own and understands the importance of good contact lens maintenance and hygiene, we are willing to fit anyone who is interested. We always find it helpful when the parents are on board and to start with daily disposable contact lenses as the healthiest option.
 
 
Dr. Mina Hoang answers frequently asked questions.
 
Q: Why do my eyes water if I have dry eye syndrome?
 
A: People with dry eyes either do not produce enough tears or have poor quality of tears. As the eyes dry out, they become more irritated and uncomfortable. This often times stimulates the lacrimal glands to produce more tears in response to the inflammation and ocular surface changes. Mild cases of dry eyes can often be managed using over-the-counter artificial tear solutions. These can be used as often as needed to supplement natural tear production.
 
 
Dr. Lindsey Stornant answers frequently asked questions.
 
Q: What are the advantages of daily disposable contact lense?
 
A: Daily disposable contact lenses are great for many reasons. The chance of infection decreases because a new sterile lens is used everyday and there is no need to clean the lens or the case. This is also a great option for patients that have allergies, contact lens solution sensitivities and dry eye as it eliminates the build up of contaminants on the lenses that can exacerbate those problems. Dailies make for a low maintenance and comfortable option for any patient!

Q: How can diabetes affect your vision?
 
A: Diabetes mellitus is one of the leading causes of irreversible blindness worldwide. Diabetes can affect your vision and eyes in many different ways. Fluctuating blood sugar levels causes the lens inside the eye to swell and shrink throughout the day. Patients may experience blurry vision that may come and go over the day as a result of changes in the blood sugar levels throughout the day. The most serious eye condition associated with diabetes involves the blood vessels that supply the retina. The earlier stage of diabetic retinopathy is called non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy. Elevated blood sugar levels damage the walls of small blood vessels in the retina, which lead to accumulation of fluid (edema), protein deposits (hard exudates) and blood (hemorrhages) inside the retina. Patients may experience central vision blur, visual distortion, and a blind spot. If detected at an early stage, treatment usually is not required. The more advanced stage of diabetic retinopathy is called proliferative diabetic retinopathy. The damaged blood vessels from elevated blood sugar lead to decreased blood flow and lower amounts of oxygen delivered to the retina. In response to the lack of oxygen, the body may form new blood vessels called retinal neovascularization. These blood vessels are harmful because they are extremely fatigue and unstable. If left untreated, retinal neovascularization can lead to bleeding and scar tissue formation inside the eye and result in permanent vision loss. Early detection is vital to prevent vision loss. Treatment for diabetic retinopathy includes Laser, Vitrectomy surgery, and intraocular injections. Dilated fundus examinations are recommended for all diabetic patients.
