6. Giant Cell Arteritis: Symptoms, Risks, Diagnosis, and Treatment. Giant cell arteritis (GCA) is a condition in which the arteries (blood vessels that carry blood away from the heart) become inflamed (swell). When arteries swell, blood flow via these vessels is reduced. The arteries in the neck, upper body, and arms are affected by GCA. Because it affects the head, it is also known as cranial or temporal arteritis. → Link

5. Five Ways to Prepare Your Eyes for Summer. Photokeratitis is a painful disorder caused by sunlight reflecting off the water, sand, or other highly reflective surfaces into your eyes. When the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays burn the surface of your eye, this is known as photokeratitis. This illness causes pain, redness, blurriness, and sometimes temporary vision loss. Wear sunglasses with a label that says “100% UV protection” to avoid photokeratitis. Also, wear a hat with a broad rim for increased eye protection. → Link

4. Botulinum Toxin (Botox) for Wrinkles on the Face. Injections of botulinum toxin are commonly used to reduce wrinkles. These injections help most people get rid of wrinkles. However, wrinkles may appear the same to some people even after the procedure. Discuss your expectations for botulinum toxin injections with your doctor. If injections do not work for you, he or she can advise you on additional wrinkle-reduction treatments. → Link

3. Subspecialists in Ophthalmology. An ophthalmologist is the only type of doctor who is qualified in all aspects of eye care. A general ophthalmologist (also known as a holistic ophthalmologist) can diagnose and treat eye diseases, as well as prescribe, fit eyeglasses and contact lenses. Many ophthalmologists who specialize in treating complex eye disorders have additional training, for example, glaucoma or cataracts. If your comprehensive ophthalmologist discovers that you have a disorder that necessitates more specialized treatment for a particular part of the eye, he or she can refer you to a subspecialist. → Link

2. What is Retinal Detachment? Retinal detachment is a serious condition that can cost a person’s vision.

Treatments to protect your sight and the right course of action to take if you start having trouble seeing should be discussed with your eye doctor. → Link
