It’s easy to take care of your eyes, but not everyone takes the initiative to do so. By properly taking care of your eyes, you could minimize chances of diseases and other eye conditions. When this occurs, you’ll have to go to an eye doctor like Dr. William Boothe. To help you with managing your eyes, here is a list of tips:
• Don’t stare at the television or computer all day. This will strain out your eyes and may even lead to migraines and headaches.
• Do give your eyes a break from wearing contact lenses or prescribed glasses. This will help to relax your eyes.
• Don’t wear contacts for long period of time.
• Do take out your contact lenses at least every 12 hours and avoid sleeping with them in your eyes. It’s a good idea to leave them off for a full day whenever you can.
• Don’t touch or rub your eyes when you haven’t washed your hands. This will allow germs and dirt into the eyes, which can cause problems.
• Do wear protective eye gear whenever you are playing a sport or working in an environment that could cause harm to your eyes.
• Don’t believe that you only need to go to the Boothe care center when you have trouble seeing. Get checkups to keep your eyes healthy.
When a woman reaches the age 40, it is very common for her to start having eye problems. Some people become nearsighted, while others become farsighted. Other conditions include developing cataracts or having scratched corneas. Whatever the problem is, eye specialists like Dr. William Boothe can help to treat it. It’s best to visit the Boothe eye care center well before then, so that it can be prevented altogether.
Why Women Over 40 Are at Risk
Not only do women in this age range not go to the eye doctor, they are reaching the era of menopause. Women who are going through menopause and have other health conditions - including diabetes or high blood pressure - are at special risk of developing eye problems. This is why it’s important to have annual checkups at the Boothe laser center. Men too sometimes develop eye problems in this age range, but women 40 and older more commonly develop glaucoma, cataracts and thyroid disease. Even worse, women who have glaucoma are more likely to go blind from the illness.
People with blurry eyesight have several options for correcting their vision. The most popular ways are with corrective glasses or contact lenses. These are both fairly easy and affordable, but many people who wear contacts have complaints of dry eye or infections. And people who wear glasses have to deal with smudges, scratches or breaking their glasses.
LASIK eye surgery is another option for correcting blurry vision, and it is gaining popularity. Some people wonder if it is safe, however. After all, many people have only heard about LASIK recently, and wonder if it has been properly tested.
In fact, LASIK has been performed for many years. Lasers used in the LASIK procedure were first approved by the FDA for use in 1998, and had been extensively tested prior to that date. Since the procedure was first approved, there have been many advances made to the laser technology, and the already low rate of complications is even lower, now.
The best way to decide if LASIK is right for you is to have a consultation with a qualified surgeon. Dr. William Boothe at Boothe Laser Center was one of the first surgeons in the US to perform LASIK, and has to date performed the procedure over 121,000 times. He has the experience and the knowledge to ensure that your procedure will go as smoothly as possible. Come in and review the facts, and see if laser eye surgery is right for you.
LASIK vision correction is a simple outpatient procedure that permanently corrects your vision through laser surgery. Most people are aware that a laser is used to correct vision, but many don’t really know exactly what goes on in the procedure.
During the LASIK procedure, a flap is cut in the cornea and the laser is used to reshape the tissue underneath. Depending on the type of vision correction you need, the cornea needs to be reshaped certain ways:
o When you are nearsighted, your cornea is too steep, so the laser is used to flatten it out.
o With farsightedness, your cornea is too flat, so the laser must make it steeper.
o If you have astigmatism, another common condition that affects eyesight, your cornea is misshapen and must be reshaped.
It just takes a few minutes to properly shape the cornea with the laser. When the surgeon is finished, the cornea flap is placed back on the eye and the procedure is done.

LASIK surgery is a permanent way to correct your vision and get rid of glasses and contact lenses forever. It has a high success rate and has been performed on millions of people in the last 15 years. But what do patients really think of it?
There have been many follow up studies with patients who have had LASIK surgery. Years after their procedure, they were asked if they would recommend it to others. In study after study, at least 95% of all patients were happy with their results and would recommend the procedure to others. In many studies, the results were closer to 99% or 100% of patients recommending it to others. When you consider how many people have had this procedure over the years – that adds up to a lot of happy people.

It happens to everyone: Somewhere between the ages of 40 and 50, nearly all of us will develop presbyopia. Presbyopia is when you have trouble focusing up close, such as when you are reading, sewing, or doing any other close up work. Unlike farsightedness, it is caused by age and the lens of your eye losing its flexibility.
Until recently, there was one way of dealing with presbyopia. You used reading glasses, or bifocals if you already had glasses for nearsightedness. Then came contacts, which gave you either multifocus or monovision. Both of these types of lenses allow you to focus close to read and far away to see distances.
With glasses and contacts, however, there are still the usual complaints about sore noses, headaches, and dry eyes. For many people, this is unacceptable.
Fortunately, there are now surgical options for treating presbyopia permanently. One popular and effective way is to use LASIK to create monovision, much the way contact lenses do.
Are you interested in getting rid of your reading glasses for good? Then you should make an appointment for a free LASIK consultation at Boothe Laser Center. Dr. William Boothe will review your vision, and determine if you are a good candidate for LASIK. If so, you can discuss your questions and schedule your surgery.
