Paul Chaplow, DTL Shooting Champion

Paul Chaplow PhotographTestimonial:

“I started taking the course of tablets in December and within a month my dry eye problem had vanished. I’ve been plagued with this problem all my shooting career with our cold wet windy winters my eyes were constantly streaming. Also I’ve noticed my scores be more and more consistent especially at this time of year when it’s very dark and overcast (poor light quality). In January I’ve shot 2 maximum 100/300 perfect scores. The previous year I didn’t manage a perfect score until April, i.e. until the better light conditions came. I personally put this down to EyePromise Vizual Edge Pro as I seem to see the target quicker, I can lock onto the target quicker thus shooting the target quicker. The target looks bigger/brighter.”

DiVFuSS: What does this study mean for your practice?

ChousBy A. Paul Chous, MA, OD, FAAO, CDE

Hi there – this is Paul Chous and I’m an optometrist with a private practice specializing in diabetes eye care and education in Tacoma, WA. Today I’d like to talk about a newly published randomized clinical trial for which I was Principal Investigator: The Diabetes Visual Function Supplement Study, or DiVFuSS (British Journal of Ophthalmology 2016). There is a lot of scientific evidence showing that multi-component nutritional supplements containing anti-oxidants, including zeaxanthin and lutein, improve visual function in patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and even lower the risk of disease progression in certain patients (AREDS and AREDS2). We were interested in seeing if we could achieve these benefits in patients with diabetes and diabetic retinopathy which, after all, remains the leading cause of new blindness in working age Americans.

Women and eye health: Don’t forget female patients this month!

women and eye healthBy Susan Lake, OD

It seems that every time I log into a social media account there is declaration of a new “day.” For example, I recently noticed an onslaught of pictures posted of my friends with their brothers and sisters and quickly realized it was “siblings day.” There are awareness “months” too, and although some of them seem a little silly and far-reaching, I recently was informed of a serious one that deems discussion.

Offer patients nutritional blue light protection

nutritional blue light protectionFrom the sunshine you enjoy on a beautiful day, to the digital devices we’ve come to depend upon – there’s no escaping blue light exposure.

Blue light might not affect your patient’s vision quality this instant, but studies are revealing the cumulative effects of blue light can negatively shape the quality of vision years decades later. Damage from blue light emitted from LED televisions, smart phones, or computers can accumulate, increasing the risk and severity of developing Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD).
