Q&A with Dr. S
Dr. Stephanie Sims Answers Your Eyecare Questions
My eyes are always burning and tired, what is causing this and what can I do about it?
These are often signs of dry eye syndrome, a very common condition that affects many people over time. Women are generally more prone to developing these symptoms and aging is often a cause as well. Dryness of our eyes is often due to a decrease in the oil production in our eyelid glands which causes the surface of the eye to become irrated. Certain medications and health issues can also contribute to dryness. There is no true cure for dryness but many treatments are available such as the use of artificial tears, nutritional supplements incorporating Omega 3, prescription medications such as Restasis, and eyelid hygiene. No single treatment works for every individual so we customize treatments for each person and their specific condition.

What's New at Northwest Vision Center?
Northwest Vision Center in Columbus proudly introduces the addition of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), the latest technology for the early detection and treatment of common eye conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. Dr. Yoongie explains, “The OCT is a computerized instrument that acquires and analyzes cross sectional and three dimensional views of the eye. It is non invasive and does not contact the eye itself. It is essentially an optical ultrasound but the resolution is even better than an MRI or ultrasound.” Dr. Yoongie believes that the most exciting aspect of this technology is the ability to not only detect issues earlier but to run repeated scans to monitor the progress of the disease.
