Watery Burning Eyes? Spring Pollen Spike Linked to Dry Eye

By |May 7th, 2015|

It seems counterintuitive that watery eyes would be a sign of having dry eye, but tears, redness and irritation are prime indicators. If you have these symptoms, which may seem to get better or worse at different times of day or in different seasons, it’s possible you are suffering from dry eye.

Has it Really Been a Year?

By |January 9th, 2009|

You’ve broken out the new calendar, or at least turned the page to a new year.  Are you wondering where 2008 went?  None of us seems immune to this syndrome, perhaps a sign of the busyness of our culture.  So, it should come as no surprise that you’ve probably underestimated how long it’s been since […]

Better Technology Means Better Patient Outcomes

By |August 20th, 2008|

A new instrument gives Complete EyeCare Center patients a distinct health advantage.  The RTVue OCT* creates ultra-high speed high resolution 3-D scans, maps and images of the eye.  It can even allow Dr. Olson to visualize discrete layers of the retina.  This is the first instrument to provide such high resolution capabilities.
What does this mean for Dr. Olson’s patients?  […]
