News Articles About Nutritional Supplementation

While I don’t believe that nutritional supplementation is the answer to every health problem in the US, I do know that the science points to benefits for the prevention of eye diseases.  There has been lots of buzz in the main stream media about a new article that says that there’s no benefit to taking vitamins.  Here’s a link to one of the articles.

Until I see much, much more information and other studies (not just reviews of other articles) that suggest no benefit for the prevention of eye diseases, and other chronic conditions, I will continue to recommend moderate levels of nutritional supplementation to my patients.  There’s just too much other science not to do so.

Falls Between Cataract Surgery

Here’s a link to a good article about the risk of falls between cataract surgeries.

This isn’t all that surprising when you think about it.  When patients are going to have cataract surgery on both eyes, the surgeries are typically scheduled 2-3 weeks apart.  After the first eye’s surgery, the patient’s previous eyeglass Rx is no longer appropriate so they either need to go without their glasses or wear their glasses, even though they may make the vision in their operated eye worse than no glasses.  A real Catch-22.  

I always try to minimize these risks for my patients, but it’s aways an issue.

Impact of Affordable Care Act – Its Real, Its Here…

I read this opinion piece and it struck close to home.  All of these factors are going to be put between doctors and their patients.

The ACA (Obama Care) has placed more power in the hands of the insurance companies, is causing people to have to change their insurance plans and will also disrupt the doctor-patient relationship.   No matter what sound bites were uttered in the past few years….

You can rest assured that I am looking at ways to minimize these impacts on my patients and my practice.   Look for more here as things develop.
