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.

Age–related cataracts develop very slowly and painlessly. In fact, you may not even realize that our vision is changing until you find yourself going to the eye doctor seeking a change in our eyeglass or contact lens prescription. It is often during one of these routine trips that the doctor will perform an eye examination and ask if we are experiencing any of the following symptoms.

  • Blur or Dimness: You may notice that no matter how many times you have your eyeglass or contact prescription updated you just can't see clearly.
  • Faded or Dull Colors: Many people report that things look dingy or that what they remember as once being very colorful isn't anymore.
  • Poor Night Vision: A cataract can make once routine tasks, like driving at night, very difficult.
  • Halos Around Lights: Cataracts can cause us to see bright halos around lights, especially oncoming headlights.
  • Sensitivity to Bright Light: You may notice that it has become more painful to walk out into bright sunlight or you may see exaggerated glare off of reflective surfaces like windshields
