A Dining in the Dark Experience Recently

A Dining in the Dark Experience

Recently, I wrote an article titled “Dining In The Dark,” published in the July 2016 issue of Cataract and Refractive Surgery Today. In this article, I wrote about my experience at Camaje, a restaurant in Manhattan, which offers individual dining in the dark nights. I dined with George Saunders, MEA CFO, Sebastian Lesniak, MD, MEA Cornea Specialist, and his wife Agnes Lesniak, RN.

To explain the concept of Dining in the Dark, here is an excerpt from the article,
“Imagine abandoning your vision, just for 2 or 3 hours, in exchange for a new, more stimulating dining experience known as “Dining in the Dark.” Either the experience takes place in a completely dark restaurant, where customers cannot see the food they are eating, or the diners are given blindfolds that totally block out light at the start of the event. Removing visual stimuli heightens the senses of smell, taste, touch, and hearing, allowing for a new and unique dining experience. With Dining in the Dark, guests are seated in a pitch-black dining room or are guided into the restaurant after being blindfolded.”

Contact Lenses and Sleep Deprivation Whe

Contact Lenses and Sleep Deprivation

When a student who wears contact lenses stays awake in classes or studying for 18-20 hours or more with their contacts in, it’s almost the equivalent of sleeping with contacts in, something that eye care professionals warn against. Prolonged wearing of your contact lenses is a problem for people who wear regular hydrogen lenses. This is because traditional hydrogels are relatively less permeable to oxygen than newer alternatives like silicone hydrogels. The eye needs oxygen to keep it healthy and without regular exposure to oxygen, the eye’s cornea can become inflamed and the vision can become blurry. Prolonged contact lens use can even lead to infections or corneal ulcers, which could lead to permanently damaged vision.

Sometimes students fall asleep in inconvenient places or at inconvenient times with their contacts in, such as while studying. The remedy to this problem is to alternate wearing contact lenses with eyeglasses during long study periods. Students with irregular sleep patterns should also wear contact lenses made of silicon hydrogen, a new material with improved oxygen permeability, which may reduce risk of infection and discomfort.

At Matossian Eye Associates our optometrists are experts in contact lenses and are happy to keep our contact lens wearers educated on the safe usage of their contacts.

Vision Problems Are Common in Children w

Vision Problems Are Common in Children with Hearing Loss

About one-fifth of children who have a particular type of hearing loss also have visual disorders, according to a recent study. An estimated one to three children per 1,000 has some degree of sensorineural hearing loss, which occurs as a result of abnormalities in the inner ear or in the auditory center of the brain. Half of all cases in children result from environmental causes and half from genetic causes; one gene accounts for a large proportion of sensorineural hearing loss cases in Caucasian patients.

Because children with hearing loss rely heavily on their other senses, undiscovered visual problems could have further harmful effects on their development. Eye examinations for all children with sensorineural hearing loss can contribute to early diagnosis and to help minimize visual problems.

Travis Gabriel, OD and Janine Disanti, OD will be offering new early morning, evening, and weekend hours. If your child needs an eye exam, please call our toll free number 1-800-708-8800 to check their availability in your preferred office.

Learning Disabilities and Eye Problems?

Learning Disabilities and Eye Problems?

Did you know that there is no strong connection between learning disabilities and eye problems? Learning disabilities are defined as difficulties with reading, mathematics, or other learning problems. There is no strong evidence that vision problems cause learning disabilities or that eye exercises can cure learning disabilities.

Children with learning difficulties often need help from teachers and other professionals with special training. Before such treatment begins, it is important for the child to have a complete medical eye examination to make certain he or she is seeing as well as possible. Often, correctable vision issues are misdiagnosed as learning disabilities.

Janine Disanti, OD and I will be offering new expanded early morning, night, and weekend hours in all three of our offices. These new hours will be a benefit for those interested in preparing for the new school year. Please call our toll free number 1-800-708-8800 to check our availability in your preferred office for the best fitting contact lenses and a comprehensive eye exam.
