The Center for Dry Eye Excellence

Koby Karp Doctors Eye Institute is proud to introduce our new Center for Dry Eye Excellence.

In our endeavor to provide the finest eye care, we have adopted a new concept for producing the best possible outcomes for our dry eye patients. This is made possible through the state-of -the-art TearLab Osmolarity System - the first objective and quantitative test for diagnosing and managing dry eye patients. 

The TearLab Osmolarity System is intended to measure the osmolarity of human tears to aid in the diagnosis of dry eye disease in patients suspected of having dry eye disease, in conjunction with other methods of clinical evaluation. 

Tear Lab provides fast and accurate results in seconds using only a tiny amount of tear film to diagnose Dry Eye Disease. It ultimately gives the best indication of early stage of the disease and enables discussion with patients around a number improving compliance. 

Koby Karp Doctors Eye Institute has been officially approved as an accredited Tear Lab Dry Eye Center. This means that we can now provide the fastest and most accurate diagnosis of your dry eye condition.  

In addition, we are also providing physician recommended PRN Nutriceuticals in the form of Omega-3 products specially formulated for relieving dry eye symptoms. We believe that these are among the best Nutriceuticals on the market today. 

The good news is that your best opportunity for relief from dry eye can be found in The Center for Dry Eye Excellence at Koby Karp Doctors Eye Institute. For more information call (502) 897-1604.

Cosmetic Eye Surgery


By Albert Smolyar, M.D.

As you may know, Koby Karp Doctors Eye Institute has long been among Louisville and Kentucky leaders in eye care. I became a part of Doctors Eye Institute in 2006 and have been performing cosmetic eyelid procedures and eye surgery for our patients since. In this article I would like to discuss and share with you some thoughts and information regarding cosmetic eyelid surgery.

Since ancient times it was believed that facial expression often reflects our internal emotional and spiritual state. Cicero, Roman philosopher and orator who lived more than 2000 years ago, said “Forehead in the gate of mind”. Proverbs state:  “Face is the index of mind”, “ Face reflects the brain”.   During human interaction, the face (and particularly the eyes) is the first area of visual attention by others.
 
Cosmetic products designed to enhance eye appearance and remedy effects of aging existed for at least 3000 years. But it was an emergence of oculoplastic and facial surgery which allowed to reverse many effects of aging to a significant extent. In addition, in recent years we witnessed an “explosion”of new nonsurgical techniques for facial  rejuvenation. These include injectable  Botulinum toxin products ( Botox, Dysport, Xeomin) and facial fillers (Juvedevm, Restylane) just to name the few.  Cosmetic eyelid surgery and injectables have gained an increasing acceptance in recent years. As we live longer, both women and men seek ways to look younger and to maintain their sense of self-confidence.

The earliest signs of aging face are wrinkles, redundancy and drooping of skin often involving eyelids. This creates an expression of fatigue, appearance of being “sleepy”. In addition, when severe, droop of upper eyelids (upper eyelid ptosis) or redundancy of upper eyelid skin (upper eyelid dermatochalasis) may lead to visual difficulties.

In this article I will concentrate on one of the most common surgical procedures performed for aging face – upper eyelid blepharoplasy.

What is Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty?

Upper eyelid blepharoplasty is done to correct excessive wrinkles, skin redundancy of fat prollapse in the upper eyelids area.  Below is step-by-step description of upper blepharoplasty surgery:

  1. Eyelid skin to be removed is determined and marked. Excessive fat is also noted. 
  2. The patient is usually given some pharmacological sedation, often intravenous, to reduce anxiety.
  3. Local anesthetic is injected. Incision is made in the upper eyelid crease . This allows to conceal the scar ( which usually is very fine and is not easily visible postoperatively).
  4. Predetermined amount of skin and fat is removed. Hemorrhaging is controlled with thermal coagulation of “bleeders”.
  5. The incision is closed with several stitches.
  6. The patient is taken to recovery room and usually released with postoperative instructions 20-30 minutes after the surgery.
After the surgery patients use cold  compresses for the first 24 hours while awake. This helps to diminish swelling. However, a degree of bruising (although variable from person to person) is always present after the surgery and should be expected. Significant  decrease in bruising and swelling is expected by 1 week after the surgery. While heavy exertion is to be avoided for several days after surgery, most of  routine daily  activities can be resumed  within hours including  walking, reading, using computer, shopping etc.  Driving is allowed 24 hours after the surgery.

Who is a good candidate for upper eyelid blepharoplasty?

Best candidates are people who have excessive upper eyelid skin and puffiness and who are in generally good health. Medical problems, particularly cardiovascular conditions and high blood pressure, thyroid disease, blood disorders and treatment with blood thinners or aspirin should be discussed with your surgeon. Fortunately, upper eyelid blepharoplasty is a relatively minor aesthetic procedure and does not normally invlove a risk of systemic complications.

Often, age-related descent of eyebrow contributes to the wrinkles and “hooding” in upper eyelid area. In this case, obtaining the optimal cosmetic result without addressing eyebrow droop will not be possible. Therefore a discussion of all present variables, available alternatives and a thorough planning of the procedure is paramount in achieving patient’s satisfaction with upper eyelid blepharoplasty.

Often, results of the surgery can be further improved by using other modalities, for example injections of Botulinum  or hyaluronic acid products to reduce facial wrinkles.

Another factor making a patient a good candidate is maintaining a realistic level of expectations from your surgery. While patients undergoing upper blepharoplasty benefit  greatly from the surgery, bear in mind that it will not always improve your looks to match your ideals.

What are possible complications of upper eyelid blepharoplasty?
 
Complications of upper eyelid blepharoplasty, while rare, may include vision loss, excessive bruising, infection, asymmetric appearance of eyelids and others. Discuss them with your surgeon prior to making up your mind regarding the surgery.

Where is upper eyelid blepharoplasty performed for Koby Karp Doctors Eye Institute  patients?

I perform upper eyelid blepharoplasty, as well as other eye procedures, at Dupont Surgery Center. It is the only facility in Louisville area specializing almost exclusively  in eye surgeries. The center’s  staff, from nurses to anesthesiologists, is very experienced and skilled in eye and eyelid procedures, making surgeries safer and keeping patients very comfortable throughout their experience. Dupont Surgery Center and Koby Karp Doctors Eye Institute share the same building, making it very convenient for our patients.

Conclusion.

In summary, upper eyelid blepharoplasty is a procedure with a high rate of patients’satisfaction. It makes people look and feel younger and allows improve self-confidence. Frank discussion with your surgeon is very important in setting up realistic goals and making the surgery a success.

Should you chose Koby Karp Doctors Eye Institute for your consultation or surgery, our staff, my colleagues and I will make sure that you achieve the best possible visual and cosmetic outcomes. You can schedule an appointment by calling (502) 897-1604

Cataracts: How Long does it take?


When it comes to Cataracts, we understand that patients are anxious to get results quickly and painlessly so we'll answer their "how long" questions here.
How long does it take for cataracts to develop?
The rate of development can vary among individuals and may also be different between the two eyes. Most age-related cataracts can progress gradually over a period of years. It is not possible to predict exactly how fast cataracts will develop in any given person. Some cataracts, especially in younger people and people with diabetes, may progress rapidly over a short time. A comprehensive eye examination can reveal early signs of cataract development.
How long does cataract removal take? or How long does cataract surgery take?
Removing cataracts is regarded as outpatient surgery and generally takes between 15 and 30 minutes to perform depending on the severity of the cataracts. You should not feel any pain during the procedure as local anesthesia is given. Afterwards, little if any pain is experienced.
It is wise to plan to be at the surgery center for approximately 2-3 hours, however, to accommodate the pre-op preparation and post-op recovery period. You will need to arrange to have someone drive you home after the procedure.
How long does cataract surgery recovery take?
The good news is that smaller incisions for cataract surgery means shorter healing time and more rapid vision recovery for most patients. 2.2 mm micro-incisions with new ultrasound equipment for cataract surgery may also reduce the chance of rare but serious infections.
In some cases patients see well the day after cataract surgery. Other patients see well a few days after surgery, and still others may need a full month or several weeks before reaching maximum vision improvement.
The new Multi-focal lens implants, the most advanced intraocular lenses (IOL's), allow patients who are good candidates, the opportunity to enjoy good distance and reading vision with minimal or no need for glasses following the cataract procedure. For more info click here.

What is Lazy Eye?

At Koby Karp Doctors Eye Institute we conduct a large number of pediatric eye exams. Not infrequently, while performing kindergarten or school eye examination, we encounter a child with decreased vision due to “lazy eye”.   “Lazy eye”, or amblyopia, is a condition that occurs when a child does not fully develop vision in one or, sometimes, in both eyes.  Lazy Eye is affecting 1-3% of population and is the most common cause of visual loss during childhood (1).   
Dr. Albert Smolyar


Amblyopia develops whenever visual input to the brain from one or both eyes is imperfect due to blurry image from the eye(s). As a result, highly specialized visual areas in the developing brain of a child do not reach a full functional capacity. Since many of “lazy eye” cases are treatable if detected early, it is important to diagnose the affected children and start the appropriate therapy as soon as possible.
Cases of “lazy eye” ( Amblyopia):
There are several common causes of “lazy eye”.
1.      Due to opacity in the eye. This can be caused by cataract or a scar of the cornea, leading to loss of sharpness of visual image.
2.      Due to strabismus, or “crossed eyes”.
3.      Due to a significant optical imperfection of the eye, such as high degree of farsightedness
                     (hyperopia), nearsightedness (myopia) or astigmatism.
4.      Due to congenital droopy eyelid covering part of the eye(s) and obstructing visual axis.
Signs of “lazy eye” ( Amblyopia):
1.      Eye that turns in or out.
2.      Apparent lack of coordinated movement between the two eyes.
3.      Apparent lack of depth perception in a child.
4.      Apparent poor vision in one or both eyes.
5.      No obvious signs.
While some of cases of “lazy eye” may manifest with one of the above visual signs – may cases go undetected.  Unfortunately, when amblyopia is discovered late, particularly after age of 9 or 10 years of age – it is very difficult to reverse, since brain formation by that time is almost complete. However, it is possible to treat “lazy eye” in some cases up to teenage years, although the best results are achieved if the treatment instituted in the first years ( or even months) of child’s life.

Treatment of Lazy Eye:

A treatment of amblyopia depends on a cause of “lazy eye”.  If farsightedness, nearsightedness or astigmatism is the culprit – wearing corrective glasses could be the only treatment required. In some cases, patching of the visually better eye for several hours daily will facilitate improvement of the “weaker “eye (2). If a significant cataract or droopy eyelid is present surgery often may be required.  In some cases of strabismus (“crossed eyes”) surgery also may be necessary, although certain  cases resolve with simple glasses wear.

Summary:
If recognized early, “lazy eye” can frequently be reversed. At the same time, if overlooked, amblyopia leads to permanent visual deficit in 1-3 % of population.  Even in the absence of warning signs, eye screening by age of one year (and certainly before children enter kindergarten) represents an essential tool for detection and treatment of amblyopia (3) .

As one of the eye care leaders in the Kentuckiana area, Doctors Eye Institute is dedicated to prevention of amblyopia by early detection and, when needed, treatment.

Our Koby Karp Kids Club will be happy to provide your child with a free T-shirt and sunglasses along with all optical services to fulfill your child’s optical needs.

Schedule a pediatric eye exam at Koby Karp Doctors Eye Institute  (including school and kindergarten eye exams) with one of our doctors by calling (502) 897-1604.

What is Macular Degeneration?

Macular degeneration is a progressive eye condition that affects as many as 15 million Americans. In macular degeneration, the light-sensing cells of the macula mysteriously malfunction and may over time cease to work.

Macular degeneration is caused by the deterioration of the central portion of the retina, known as the macula, the inside back layer of the eye that records the images we see and sends them, via the optic nerve, from the eye to the brain. It is responsible for focusing central vision in the eye.  

The disease robs the individual of all but the outermost, peripheral vision, leaving only dim images or black holes at the center of vision but, it rarely results in complete blindness.

It destroys the clear, "straight ahead" central vision necessary for reading, driving, identifying faces, watching TV, doing fine detailed work, safely navigating stairs and performing other daily tasks. It can also dim contrast sensitivity and color perception. Peripheral vision may not be affected making it possible to see "out of the corner of your eye".  

The disease occurs most often in people over the age of 55 years old. This form of the disease is traditionally referred to as Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD). 

Two Main Types of Age Related Macular Degeneration  

There are two types of age related macular degeneration: One form is known as "wet" and the other is "dry".
 
Approximately 90% of the cases of macular degeneration are the “dry” (atrophic) type. It is called “dry” macular degeneration because it does not involve any leakage of blood or serum. It is not uncommon for a patient with the "dry" form to develop the "wet" form later, so it is possible to experience both forms at the same time, in one or both eyes. The onset and progression of either type do not follow any particular pattern.
 
While there is no cure for AMD, new treatments are available. The most effective treatment is Low Vision Rehabilitation. Training and special devices can promote independence and a return to favorite activities.  

What are the Symptoms of Macular Degeneration?
  •  A dark empty area in the center of vision
  •  Blurring and diminished colors in central vision
  •  Distortion of lines and shapes
  •  Difficulty in seeing detail up close and at a distance

How can high cholesterol affect vision?

September is National Cholesterol Education Month, it is fitting that we discuss the impact that cholesterol can have on your eyes. High cholesterol is so common, and many patients ask us about how this relates to eyes and vision.

High cholesterol levels in the blood cause a buildup of plaque in the arteries throughout the body over time. This can lead to narrowing of the arteries, thus reduces blood flow. Small blood clots then can lead to complete loss of blood flow to organs and tissues such as heart muscle (heart attack, myocardial infarction, angina), brain tissue (stroke) and lower extremities for example. Other risk factors such as Diabetes and Hypertension can increase the chances of blood vessel diseases. The small arteries and veins of the retina and optic nerve can become closed by blood clots also, which can lead to significant loss of vision. Symptoms of a retinal artery occlusion can be sudden, painless loss of central or peripheral vision in one eye.

Cholesterol in the bloodstream tends to accumulate in the cornea, the clear dome-shaped lens at the front of the eye. This appears as a white or gray ring around the peripheral cornea, making the iris color appear lighter, grayer or bluish. This can be quite prominent in some people. As we age, there is nearly always some of this appearance of Corneal Arcus, but when it is prominent or occurs at young ages (i.e.  50 years), it can indicate high cholesterol. This never affects the vision and we usually see some Corneal Arcus as a normal finding in patients over 50 years old.

Cholesterol material also appears around the eyes in some patients as fatty deposits of yellow material under the skin of the eyelids. This is called Xanthelasma. These are benign lesions and do not require removal. As with Arcus, these can occur with normal blood cholesterol levels also.

It is important to manage cholesterol levels with your primary care doctor to maintain good health of blood vessels throughout the body. A combination of diet management, exercise and medications is generally very effective for controlling cholesterol levels.

How diabetes effects eyesight


The other day a patient asked me, Can diabetes have a negative effect on my eyesight?"

I explained that over a long period of time, the high blood glucose levels associated with Diabetes Mellitus can have an effect on many parts of the body. Especially sensitive to damage are small blood vessels, like ones in the retina of the eye and kidneys; and nerve cells. Many eye-related problems can occur with Diabetes, such as fluctuations in eyeglass measurements, lens opacities (cataracts) and retinal complications. Glaucoma problems, corneal problems, even orbital and neurological problems around the eye and orbit area can occur.
 
During your comprehensive eye exam, the ophthalmologist will look for all of these. Many of these problems appear with noticeable symptoms, such as changes in vision, distorted vision, night glare, sudden unusual floaters but the diabetic retina disease (retinopathy) is typically very slow and sneaks in without the patient’s awareness of it.

Cataracts develop often in younger aged individuals with diabetes. Large fluctuations in blood sugar cause swelling of the crystalline lens inside the eye, which can blur the vision temporarily, but eventually the lens becomes cloudier and affects the clarity of vision. Fortunately, we have effective treatments for cataracts when they become visually significant.

Diabetic Retinopathy is the condition of the retina when it is affected by long term elevations of blood sugar levels. The small arteries of the retina develop weak walls; these can dilate into microaneurysms with early retinopathy. These vessels eventually break, causing dots of bleeding and loss of blood supply to small areas of the retina. Sometimes these microaneurysms leak fluid into the retina, causing it to swell. This alone can cause reduced vision, distorted vision and blind spots.

There are helpful treatments today to reduce the impact on vision. With multiple hemorrhages and poor blood flow from advancing retinopathy, further problems occur as vessels grow inside the eye. Sudden bleeding from these larger weak vessels can cause severe loss of vision, huge floaters and opacities and retinal detachment. With early detection of these impending complications, before they are causing any noticeable symptoms, the treatments for the eye can be quite effective at stopping the progression to blindness.

We recommend eye exams, including dilated retina exam, every year for all diabetic patients, regardless of whether they need glasses or have any vision symptoms or problems. Primary care doctors are usually very good at assuring that their diabetic patients get checked yearly. Good control of blood glucose levels does decrease the chances of these problems dramatically, yearly eye exams allow for earlier detection of retinopathy and therefore earlier treatments if advancing to stages that require treatment.

Kids Eye Exams in Louisville

Kids complaining about not being able to see well in the classroom? Are they leaning in too close to the computer screen? Perhaps it's time for a comprehensive eye exam.

The two most common vision issues in young kids are: A crossed or wandering eye and uneven focus, where one eye is more farsighted than the other.

The first condition may be referred to as "lazy eye" or "wandering eye".  Often kids may not say anything about these issues but if either condition goes untreated, the child's stronger eye can slowly become the dominant eye. The brain will ignore images coming from the weaker eye and stop developing the nerve connections leading to it. Eventually, vision loss in the weaker eye will be permanent.

A vision screening, early detection and the proper treatment can reverse these conditions!

It's easy to schedule a thorough and complete Kids Eye Exam. Call us at (502) 897-1604 or 1-800-777-4393.

What Causes Dry Eye Syndrome? What is Drye Eye Syndrome?

Problematic dry eyes are one of the most common problems reported to eye doctors. Dry eyes can result from either a decrease in the amount of tear production or the quality or composition of the tears produced.

According to Dr. David Karp, M.D. of Koby Karp Doctors Eye Institute in Louisville, Kentucky, "Common causes may include advancing age, allergies, poor diet, heating/cooling environmental circumstances, hormonal changes, health status such as diabetes, arthritis, lupus, thyroid dysfunction, chemotherapy or radiation treatments and acne, rosacea, contact lens use, computer use and patients that have a history of LASIK or refractive surgery."

In addition, certain medications can contribute to dry eye symptoms such as antidepressants, antihistamines, decongestants, acne treatments, diuretics and some blood pressure medications.

Common symptoms of dry eyes may include blurred or variable vision, sensitivity to light, dryness, burning, stinging, gritty or foreign body sensations. Occasionally, the dry eye patient may experience a paradoxical excess or "reflex" tearing caused by the underlying eye surface irritation.

Treatment of this condition may include artificial tears, gels and/or lubricating ointments at bedtime, daily eyelid hygiene scrub procedures, a prescribed medication regimen, omega-3 nutritional supplements (fish and flaxseed oil), and punctal (tear drainage) occlusion of the eyelid to retain moisture.

As you can see the causes and possible treatments are complex. Your eye doctor can formulate and individual treatment plan for you based on severity and known causes. Here are some helpful tips:
 
·  Wear sunglasses outdoors to reduce glare and block the drying wind effect
·  Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and fluids
·  Add a humidifier in the bedroom and turn off fansBedroom 
·  Aim vents in cars away from your face
·  Take frequent "blink breaks" when using a computer
·  If taking hormone replacement therapy be sure your doctor knows about your tear problem.

Use over-the-counter lubricants such as SYSTANE ULTRA Lubricant Eye drops as needed for extra relief.
 
·  Supplements such as flaxseed oil and omega-3 could provide extra benefits
·  Avoid excessive caffeine
·  Smoking aggravates this problem
·  Environmental factors can add to your discomfort (smoke, fumes, dust)
·  Airline travel can increase symptoms
·  Taking antihistamines for allergy can increase symptoms
