Skyline Optical Rated A+

We recently applied to be accredited with the Better Business Bureau, and Skyline Optical has been awarded with the highest rating possible, an A+. The BBB assigns ratings from A+ (highest) to F (lowest) based on a number of factors relevant to the business practices of the company in question. Skyline is now fully credentialed with the BBB and the staff and Dr. Morra are very proud of their A+ rating, and will continue to serve our patients in an exemplary manner!

STEREO RETINA CAMERA

We have just purchased a new KOWA retinal camera which takes 3D pictures of the retina (the back of the eye) and anterior structures (the front of the eye). Stereo photos are important in diagnosing and managing glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, nevi (freckles in the back of the eye) and other eye disorders. Our Optometric Technician, Andrea, takes the photographs that allow Dr. Morra to better diagnose and monitor these conditions in his patients. The pictures are forever stored in the camera database and “in the cloud” so if there are any questions as to changes in a patient’s status, the photos can be easily reviewed.

Syracruse Optometry Award

Joseph G. Morra, O.D., P.C. has ranked in the Top 5 for the Syracuse Optometry Rankings for 2015.

Opencare annually reviews and evaluates over 19 Optometry offices in Syracuse, based on patient reviews from Yelp, Google, RateMDs, Yellow Pages, Opencare and many other review sites. This is done in an effortless to allow patients to find out who the best Optometry offices in Syracuse are.

Congratulations!

Pink, Stinging Eyes?

Conjunctivitis, also called pink eye, is one of the most frequently seen eye diseases, especially in kids. It can be caused by viruses, bacteria or even allergies to pollen, chlorine in swimming pools, and ingredients in cosmetics, or other irritants, which touch the eyes. Some forms of conjunctivitis might be quite transmittable and quickly spread in school and at the office.

Conjunctivitis is seen when the conjunctiva, or thin transparent layer of tissue covering the white part of the eye, becomes inflamed. You can identify conjunctivitis if you notice eye redness, discharge, itching or swollen eyelids and a crusty discharge surrounding the eyes early in the day. Pink eye infections can be divided into three main types: viral, allergic and bacterial conjunctivitis.

The viral type is usually a result of a similar virus to that which produces the recognizable red, watery eyes, sore throat and runny nose of the common cold. The red, itchy, watery eyes caused by viral pink eye are likely to last from a week to two and then will clear up on their own. You may however, be able to reduce some of the discomfort by using soothing drops or compresses. Viral pink eye is transmittable until it is completely cleared up, so in the meantime maintain excellent hygiene, remove eye discharge and try to avoid using communal pillowcases or towels. If your son or daughter has viral conjunctivitis, he or she will have to be kept home from school for three days to a week until symptoms disappear.

A bacterial infection such as Staphylococcus or Streptococcus is usually treated with antibiotic eye drops or cream. One should notice an improvement within just a few days of antibiotic drops, but be sure to adhere to the full prescription dosage to prevent pink eye from recurring.

Allergic pink eye is not contagious. It is usually a result of a known allergy such as hay fever or pet allergies that sets off an allergic reaction in their eyes. First of all, to treat allergic pink eye, you should eliminate the irritant. Use cool compresses and artificial tears to relieve discomfort in mild cases. When the infection is more severe, your eye doctor might prescribe a medication such as an anti-inflammatory or antihistamine. In cases of chronic allergic pink eye, topical steroid eye drops could be used.

Pink eye should always be diagnosed by a qualified eye doctor in order to identify the type and best course of treatment. Never treat yourself! Keep in mind the sooner you begin treatment, the lower chance you have of giving pink eye to loved ones or prolonging your discomfort.
