DISEASE THAT MIGHT START OFF OF BEING HARMLESS BUT WHEN IT

WORLDWIDE DEAL WITH THE CRIPPLING CONDITION
CALLED GLAUCOMA AND MANY OF THEM LIVE RIGHT HERE ON
DELMARVA GLAUCOMA AFFECTS YOUR OPTIC NERVE IT CAN
DAMAGE THAT NERVE TO THE POINT WHERE YOU CAN
EXPERIENCE VISION LOSS BUT THE EXPERTS AT CHESAPEAKE I
SAID ARE WORKING TO CHANGE GLAUCOMA PROGRESSION BY
OFFERING A NEW PROCEDURE TO THE EASTERN SHORE DELMARVA
LIFE SYDNEY WHITFIELD SHOWS US HOW. DEXTER CAP’N SMOOTH
HASSLES WHICH HAS IF HE CENTRAL WORKS WITH GLAUCOMA
PATIENCE ALL THE TIME SO SHE UNDERSTANDS THE WAY THAT
THE DISEASE CAN AFFECT THE GUY GLAUCOMA IS LIKE YOUR
BATH TUB THOSE EITHER TOO MUCH FLUID COMING IN SO
BUILDS UP AROUND YOUR ANKLES OR NOT ENOUGH GOING OUT SO
BUILDS UP AROUND HER. GOALS IF YOU HAVE VASCULAR DISEASE
SUCH AS DIABETES HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE THOSE OR RISK
FACTORS AGE IS A RISK FACTOR THE MOST IMPORTANT PART ABOUT
DETECTING GLAUCOMA AND TREATING IT IS GETTING TOO
EARLY AND IF YOU DO CATCH IT EARLY THERE HAVE BEEN
TREATMENTS AVAILABLE FOR PATIENTS TYPICALLY TODAY ARE
MAINSTAYS OF TREATMENT MEDICATIONS SEVERAL CLASSES
OF MEDICATIONS OR SELECTIVE LASER TREBECK CUELLAR PLASTY
FOR THE EARLY STAGES OF GLAUCOMA WE TRY TO CATCH IT
EARLY CONTROL IN THAT FASHION HOWEVER IF THE GLAUCOMA
PROGRESSIVE DESPITE THESE TREATMENTS AND GOES TO A MORE
ADVANCED STAGE THERE. PRETTY MAJOR AND COMPLICATED
SURGERIES THAT CAN BE PERFORM FOR CONTROL THAT HAVE BEEN
OUT THERE FOR A WHILE SHE SAYS THOSE SURGERIES DO HAVE
A TENDENCY TO HAVE COMPLICATIONS AND USUALLY
PERFORMED IN THE PATIENT ALREADY HAS VISION LOSS BUT
SHE SAYS NOW THERE’S ANOTHER WAY TO TREAT THE DISEASE WAS
EXCITING TIME AND OPHTHALMOLOGY BECAUSE OVER
THE LAST FEW YEARS MINIMALLY INVASIVE GLAUCOMA SURGERY
THERE ARE SEVERAL DIFFERENT TECHNIQUES THAT ARE USED ONE
THAT WE’RE USING FREQUENTLY IN OUR PRACTICE IS THE CYPRUS
DEBT AND THIS IS A SIX MILLIMETRES STAND THAT IS
INTRODUCED INTO THE DRAINAGE SYSTEM OF THE I KIND OF
BYPASSING THAT DRAINAGE SYSTEM IF YOU WILL THAT WE DO
AT THE TIME OF CATARACT SURGERY SO IN OTHER WORDS
THANK YOU SO MUCH HASSLE IS AND HER TEAM WILL REMOVE YOU
CATARACT PUT IN AN ARTIFICIAL ISLANDS AND THEN PUT THE SIX
MILLIMETRES STEPPED IN TO TREAT THE GLAUCOMA THAT’S
DIDN’T WILL MAKE THAT FLUID LEVY FASTER THIS IS A
HANDHELD THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT WE’RE USING THE OR THE VERY
END OF THE TIP AS THE STENT ITSELF IT IS A SIXTH
MILLIMETER I THINK AS POLYSACCHARIDE LIKE A PLASTIC
TYPE OF DEVICE AND IT LOOKS LIKE HAS LITTLE RINGS AT
THE END THAT KEEP IT FROM GOING INTO AND WE JUST FOLLOW
THAT RIGHT DOWN INTO THE LITTLE CHANNEL AND WE
PUSH THIS BUTTON HERE AND THE STAFF WILL RELEASE INTO
THE EYE AND THEN THIS INSTRUMENT COMES OUT NOT ONLY
ARE THESE SURGERIES DONE QUICKLY BUT DOCTORS SMOOTH
HASSLES SAYS THEY ARE PROVING TO BE EFFECTIVE AS WELL. NOW
IS WHAT WE HAVE FOUND HERE. IS THAT THE MAJORITY OF OUR
PATIENTS ARE TOTALLY OFF OF ALL MEDICATIONS AFTER
THE SURGERY NOW WHY IS THAT GREAT THAT’S GREAT BECAUSE
MEDICATIONS ARE VERY EXPENSIVE A LOT OF PEOPLE
DON’T USE THEM LIKE THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO THE MEDICATIONS
CAN AFFECT THE CORNER OF THE EYE AND AGGRAVATE DRY SO
THERE’S A LOT OF REALLY GOOD REASONS TO DO THIS MOST
IMPORTANTLY IT’S KEEPING THAT PRESSURE LOW BECAUSE OF THOSE
PEOPLE WHO ARE TREATED SUCCESSFULLY OF MEDICATIONS
75 PERCENT OF THEM NEVER NEED THEIR MEDICATIONS AGAIN AND
SHE SAYS THERE’S BARELY ANY RECOVERY YOU’RE TAKING OFF
YOUR PATCH YOU’RE SEEING YOUR DOCTOR YOU’RE OFF OF YOUR
GLAUCOMA MEDICATIONS THAT I TILL WE SEE HOW THAT WORKS
YOU USE YOUR EYE DROPS LIKE YOU WOULD USE AFTER CATARACT
SURGERY ANTIINFLAMMATORY AN ANTIBIOTIC AND THAT’S PRETTY
MUCH BUSINESS AS USUAL DR. DISPUTE HAS SINCE SAID SHE’S
LOOKING FORWARD TO TREATING PATIENTS THROUGH THIS
GROUNDBREAKING PROCEDURE. WE’RE VERY EXCITED THAT WE
STAY CURRENT WITH THE NEWEST TECHNOLOGIES AND THESE
SERVICES ARE AVAILABLE LOCALLY ON THE SHORE FOR OUR
PATIENTS WHO DO HAVE GLAUCOMA SO NOW DR. SMOOT SAYS YOU
SHOULD MAKE SURE TO GET YOUR COMPREHENSIVE I EXAMS EARLY
SO THAT IF YOU DO HAVE GLAUCOMA HER TEAM CAN DETECT
IT AND USE SOME OF THE NEW PROCEDURES LIKE ANY OTHER
