Eye Disease Diagnosis & Management

At Trendz Optical, we take your ocular health very seriously. In many cases, serious eye diseases don’t have any symptoms until they’ve caused irreversible damage and vision loss. That’s why we’ll always stress the importance of regular eye exams so we can monitor your overall health and pinpoint early signs of disease.

If we catch signs of eye disease in the early stages, there is a much better chance of controlling the disease and preventing permanent damage. Even if you aren’t experiencing symptoms, having your eyes examined regularly is vital to preventative health care.

Common eye diseases we test for include:

Digital Eye Strain

In today’s world, digital devices are a big part of our daily lives. From smartwatches to laptops, it’s likely we spend at least a portion of our days staring at a digital screen. If you use digital devices for most of your day, your eyes may start to feel fatigued. If this sounds like you, you could be suffering from digital eye strain.

Digital eye strain is a condition that occurs when eyes exert too much effort focusing for long periods of time. Everyone, even those with perfect eyesight, is susceptible to digital eye strain. However, uncorrected refractive errors and an uncomfortable desk set-up can exacerbate symptoms.

Reducing digital eye strain is easy. Positioning your screen and chair to support healthy focusing distances, adjusting brightness and contrast, and taking regular breaks can help keep your eyes feeling comfortable.

Eye Nutrition

Living a healthy lifestyle can help you feel great in all aspects, but did you know it can also help protect your ocular health and vision? Your eyes, just like the rest of your body, benefit significantly when you eat a balanced diet, exercise regularly, and avoid alcohol and tobacco.

There are certain foods and supplements you can integrate into your diet to keep your health on track. Although your risk of developing an eye disease depends heavily on your genes, what you eat can effectively lower that risk as well.

Some great vitamins and nutrients to include in your diet may be:

  • Vitamin A
  • Lutein
  • Zeaxanthin
  • Omega-3 fatty acids
  • Gamma-linolenic acid
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin E
  • Zinc

If you need some support with eating to support your ocular health, we’d love to help. Contact our office to book an appointment!

Flashes & Floaters

Flashes

Flashes are sudden flashes or threads of light that appear within your field of vision. Typically, flashes are considered a type of photopsia, or vision disturbance. They can typically occur in one or both eyes and may look different each time.

Most often, the cause for flashes is pressure or force on the retina. Tiny fibres are attached to the retina, and when they get pulled or rubbed, the friction can cause sudden flashes of light.

Floaters

Eye floaters are tiny specks or strings that seem to “float” across your field of vision. They are generally not a cause for concern and should not create any pain or discomfort.

Floaters are microscopic fibres and clumps of protein floating in the gel-like substance that makes up your eye. They can worsen with age, but you should talk to your optometrist if they seem to worsen rapidly.

Latisse

Latisse, a medication called bimatoprost, is a serum that can effectively treat short or sparse eyelashes. It was discovered as a side effect of a glaucoma medication called Lumigan, which are medicated eye drops that caused the eyelashes to thicken and grow longer.

Latisse is commonly used to treat hypotrichosis (inadequate eyelashes). It’s applied directly to the upper eyelid to encourage the growth of longer, thicker, darker eyelashes. The medication is not meant to be applied to the lower lash line. Typically, you should use Latisse for at least 2 months to see significant results.

Latisse can cause some side effects, including irritation, dry eyes, darkened eyelids, darkened irises, and hair growth around the eyes. If you stop using Latisse, your eyelashes will eventually return to their original appearance. However, a darkened iris is a permanent side effect.
