Q&A with Dr. G
Dr. Galbrecht Answers Your Eyecare Questions
Is it possible for your eyes to be over-dilated at the doctor’s office?
It is important to know what over-dilated means. With regards to the degree of dilation, there is not an excessive amount. The degree of dilation is highly variable, but no amount is excessive. With regards to the duration of the dilation, there is also great variability based on the sensitivity of the patient and the strength of the dilating drops used. If you find that your eyes stay dilated for an excessive period of time, ask your optometrist to use a milder drop at future visits.
Focus on Technology
Each month we focus on some of the advanced tools and equipment that we use at Galbrecht EyeCare to provide our patients with the most professional care.
This month the focus is on Konan CellChek Specular MIcroscope used in the testing process for all of our patients needing cataract surgery. Standard biomicroscopy does not provide the critical detail of the earliest signs of endothelial disease. At Galbrecht EyeCare we use the CellChek Specular Microscope which allows us 100 x more magnification.
Dr. Galbrecht explains, "This instrument is invaluable when determining if a patient is a good, great, or bad candidate for refractive surgery and cataract surgery. Most patients do not know that you must have a healthy endothelium to undergo any type of surgery to the eye."
