Ocular rosacea

Ocular Rosacea

Ocular Rosacea

Rosace is disease of unknown origin. Rosacea mainly afflicts the skin. There are 4 types of skin rosacea and one variant. The lid is an extension of the skin. Therefore rosacea can spread to the lid margin causing Rosacea Blephritis or inflammation of the lid margin. Lid margins have numerous pores which produce components of tear film. This has some consequences on tear production. The quantity and quality of tear is altered inciting dry eye.

Dry eyes are notorious for developing pingecula and pterygium. The reason is that tears supply oxygen to the surface of the eye. Deficient tear film can impede supply of oxygen to the conjunctiva and the cornea. So we find that Rosace patients suffer from these disease entities. It may even lead to deep vessels and haze in the cornea.

Natural Treatment of Ocular Rosacea

We prefer non pharmacytical approach as the mainstay of treating this troublesome ocular condition.

  1. Lid Hygiene
  2. Artificial Tears
  3. Warm Compress

Medications for Ocular Rosacea

  1. Oral Tetracycline : This is a time tested drug. It works in multiple fashion. Tetracycline when ingested orally softens the secretions from the mebiomain glands. This action unclogs the Pres yielding thinner liquid tears. Watch out if this is taken by a pregnant woman or a kid. In these it can cause teeth discoloration and affect the bones.
  2. Oral Doxycycline :  A newer variant. Dose required is less. For maintenance therapy oral 40 mg Doxycycline is now FDA approved.
  3. Topical cyclosporine  – restais  or xiidra. These are the 21st century addition to the treatment protocol for rosacea of the eye. These drops are not steroids, but are anti-inflammatory. Reduction of inflammation is beneficial to the entire surface of the eye.
  4. Topical Azithromycin

Finally there are surgical options for manifestations like pterygium  

or DALK surgery for deep stroll scars.

Confessions of Charlie Sheen

Act1 Scene3:
Setting : Malibu beach house
Charlie:I am so fed up of untalented folks trying to prove themselves better than me. What is their problem if I drink or smoke? They are plain jealous that I know how to enjoy life.Don’t I have problems? My whole life I have been trying to prove myself, to come out from my fathers shadow! And yes to gain My dad’s attention and love . Is anything wrong with that? I felt so dejected me when he reported me for parole violation. Everyone is fixated on Charlie! No one tries to understand Carlos. Even the women I fell in love with, were actually in love with Charlie sheen not Carlos.Is it too much to ask that my loved ones understand my fears, the ghosts from the past. I live life to the hilt but I give everything to my work. Has not my stellar handwork made the Men a hit! I opened my life for the show. What did chuck really have to do? With 200 writers at his disposal, and a brilliant life story, all he did was act pompous! I on the other hand had to face the camera every time and deliver to my audience.
So how does it bother this insect what I do after or before the show?And since his creativity is dead he is trying to blame my smoking. Is he the drug czar or a worn out writer. I will not take this lying down, I will become drug free and than challenge his creativity leaving him no excuse.

This may or may not have occurred.

Now one of the most important things to remember when addressing the fear of Lasik Surgery is the fact that you are not alone in feeling a little anxiety over the possibility of having someone cut on your eyes. Just the idea of having someone perform this procedure can cause fear among many patients!
It tends to give off a negative suggestion that glasses and contacts are good whereas Lasik is bad.

At first it might prove difficult to understand how a surgical procedure can be safer than corrective equipment but the truth to the matter is this. A person wearing contacts is 5 xs more likely to experience complications over a person who has had Lasik Surgery. Contact lens wearers, risk exposing their eyes to major bacteria by having expired prescriptions, sleeping with their contacts in, or through bad hygiene and improper use.
If you are a Contact Lens wearer who suffers from having some of these bad habits then now might be a good time to consider Lasik surgery. If you add up the cost of a prescription lenses over a lifetime then you would see that the cost for Lasik easily pays for itself over the years. Just imagine never having to worry about losing a contact, a dirty contact lens infection or a contact lens cutting your eye. Not to mention all of the countless hours of contact lens care. You can go to sleep and wake up in the morning with clear vision without having to put on glasses or having to put in your contacts.

Rules of Engagement and LASIK

Ya know, TV writers sometimes like to exaggerate. Take for example,episode of rules of engagement from march 8th.  When Jeff accidentally hits Audrey, she gets a corneal abrasion. Cornea is the front clear part of the eye. The top layer of this tissue is the epithelium which is loaded with corneal nerves. If the epithelium gets denuded the naked cornea gets stimulated, in other words it is very painful.The treatment depends on the size of the corneal abrasion. For very small abrasions, no intervention may be necessary. At our Beverly Hills office we treat larger abrasions with  non steroidal anti inflammatory drops. Our Eye Surgeon may even give topical anesthetics. A therapeutic bandage contact lens seals the deal. Where my friends is the question of the pirate patch. In Beverly Hills people cant afford to look like weirdos. So my friends who write script get real.  Get a real Corneal specialist like Rajesh Khanna, MD to advise you.

LASIK VS THIN FLAP LASIK

OK, you have decided to have LASIK. Your dad had it 12 years ago for 1899/eye and now that LASIK center offers it for 999/eye. If it worked for your father it should work for you is what they say. But wait a minute… there was no facebook nor twitter than. Pentium 1 processors ruled the day and windows 2000 was ruling the day. We have moved on from pentium 1 to xeon and now windows 7 is here. The good news for your eyes is that LASIK has progressed too. First What is the full form of LASIK? LASER assisted intrastromal keratomilusis. LASER of course  stands for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. In simple words in LASIK a flap is fashioned and everted. The exposed cornea is than modified by the laser. Now that is what we are going to talk about- the design and fashioning the LASIK flap.
