Did You Know?

Did you know that you could be going blind and not even know it? That's what glaucoma does. It sneaks up on you very slowly over time. It's a leading cause of blindness in all adults over 60. But some people are especially at risk. If you're Black and over 40, you're up to five times more likely to get glaucoma. Or if you have a family history of glaucoma, you're also at high risk. Glaucoma can't be cured, but it can be controlled and the risk of blindness reduced-if glaucoma is detected and treated in time. That's why it's so important for people with an increased risk to have regular eye exams. Seattle glaucoma specialist, Howard Barnebey, MD is one of a very small group of local eye doctors dedicated to glaucoma and helping patients with this terrible eye disease.

3 Things You Can Do To Reduce Irritation From Allergies This Spring

3 Things You Can Do To Reduce Irritation From Allergies This Spring

So it is Spring! The beautiful season of blooming flowers and life, but wait isn't there something else about Spring that isn't so great? Right! The allergies! How could we forget about the allergies? Runny nose, itchy eyes, scratchy throat, irritated skin—all the good stuff! Spring is certainly a beautiful season, but the itchy eyes can be a real drag! So what can you do to protect your eyes during the Spring time to reduce irritation?


Here are a 3 things you can do this Spring to protect your eyes:

Wear Some Sunglasses

We recommend wearing sunglasses when you are outside, not only is this going to protect your eyes from the suns harmful rays, but it will also help to stop pollen from blowing into your eyes! Also, wearing some slick shades in the Spring is a great look!

Wash Those Hands


This is cleanliness 101 people! Always make sure your hands are clean, especially if you spend a lot of time outdoors. Pollen can easily get on your hands and the average person touches their face a lot every day. This creates a situation where you can rub pollen into your eyes and cause a lot of irritation and redness. Probably not a bad idea to keep some eye drops handy to keep your eyes clear of pollen.

Filter That Air

Obviously, when you are outdoors you are exposed to a lot of allergens in the Spring, but the indoors can be just as bad. Pollen is so small that it can easily blow through the screens on your windows, so if you regularly have the windows open, expect to deal with the same allergy issues you would deal with in the outdoors. One thing you can do to help reduce the allergens in the air in your home is to get a high efficiency particular air (HEPA) filter. This air filter will help to regular the air in your home and remove allergens.

Spring is in the air as they say, just make sure you are taking precautions to protect your eyes from pollen and other free radicals. Most importantly, don't forget to enjoy this beautiful time of year!
