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.

Hemlines and LASIK Eye Surgery

In the 20 th Century the economy could be predicted by the fashion of the gorgeous. The higher the hemline, the higher the stocks would be. In the 21st century the predictor has become LASIK eye procedure. The more people have lasik and the fewer glasses on view, the better the economy. The volume of persons seeking to eliminate glasses and those foreign bodies- contact lenses, is increasing. Foreign is used here as something not belonging in the eyes. We have nothing against foreigners. We love them especially the kids on 70 show and big bang theory.We do have our doubts about the Governator. Back on track to laser vision correction and economy. Who can predict what the economy  or the head of all economy – the IMF chief will do?  LASIK eye surgery can indicate the height of NASDAQ. Currently both are on the rise. A word of caution. Spend as much time researching and reading on stocks as on choosing a lasik eye surgeon. Penny stocks and $299 LASIK – the less said the better.

Confessions of chuck loree

Act 1 Scene 2: Setting : a house in Los Angeles

Chuck: I have had enough of this drunk, druggie, whoremonger!I will not write for him or dwell on stupid antics of his. He is such a bad influence on kids .. My son, my wife abhors him.
He represents what wrong with our society. He has no character, yet he gets all the kudos. I exercise everyday, eat healthy food,avoid drinks and don’t smoke. This guy on the other hand is evil incarnate. He drinks and drinks, mistreats women, breaks all laws.yet, success and money follow him. Why do women drool over him, is bulbs fathom.
It’s always been the same. Even in school, I would struggle and excel, follow all rules , turn in work o n time and get straight A’s.
The same teachers would high five the jocks who were always absconding and smoking. The cheerleaders would throw themselves at these low life’s who would not think twice of taking advantage of them. Why? And they would turn down a true gentleman like self.it’s not fair.
I will not play second fiddle no more. My pen is my power. I will create characters and a show more powerful than men. I will turn unknown, unlikely talented actors into stars. Like the creation I will create a Big Bang!

This may or may not have happened!

TLC Vision or Tender Loving Care

 

A nice young man rode his yamaha 100 miles to have Laser vision correction with our Beverly Hills LASIK doctor. After the tiring ride he quenched his thirst  with an arnold palmer. (yes we serve that to our patients)

 

In a matter of few minutes he improved from being legally blind and be even to see his hands to seeing 20/40 or driving vision.

 

He still needed a little TLC or tender loving care. So our wonderful caring staff, brought out a pillow and warm blankets and converted one of the consult rooms into a bedroom for him so he could take a nap. That helped him a lot. TLC improved the vision too.

 

Now he was 20/20.

 

Keep up the good work Dr. Rajesh Khanna and The Caring Staff!

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.

Reading Glasses in Hollywood?

Reading glasses are usually required when a person reaches mid forties. The ability of the internal eye muscles to change the shape of the lens leads to this condition. A person who could never wear glasses needs to find them and wear them. The power of the reading glasses keep increasing t]over the next two decades. Wait, don’t worry- our Beverly Hills Vision Center has a solution. We offer Hyperopic LASIK on the most advanced laser platforms. If you are already far sighted than we can treat your distance and reading and simultaneously. If you dont have any prescription we can offer Blend LASIK. Finally, if you a re nearsighted than we can under-correct one of your eyes. If none of this appeals to you at our Beverly Hills Vision center we also offer PRELEX.

Recent Testimonial – Beverly Hills Lasik Doctor

Dr. Khanna,

 

Thank you so much for fixing my vision. I still can’t believe how much better I can see, and how fast my eyes recovered. Everyone I talk to that has had LASIK are jealous that I didn’t have the long and uncomfortable recovery period that they did. Everyone here at the office was a pleasure to talk with and they were very helpful, thanks again.

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.
