Join the Facebook Challenge

We’d like to join the current Facebook Challenge asking people to post a picture of a landscape from a place where you’ve been, where the main requirement is that you NOT appear in it. Just a picture, no description. The goal is to fill people’s timelines with landscape photos to give a twist on the situation we’re going through. At High Country Macula, our patients are our inspiration, nothing makes us happier than when patients share pictures of the sights and images that inspire them, and that they value as a result of their preserved and restored eyesight. Join us, post a photo and share with your friends on Facebook. Let’s travel virtually around the world!

Do you or someone you know suffer from Sleep Apnea?

Do you or someone you know suffer from Sleep Apnea? New research shows that Sleep Apnea is a risk for developing Diabetic Retinopathy and Macula Edema, complications of Diabetes that are leading causes of vision loss or blindness in the United States. When people with Diabetes have poor control over their blood sugar levels, the tiny blood vessels at the back of the eyeball can become damaged. Researchers believe that Sleep Apnea may contribute to the development and worsening of these pathologies by increasing insulin resistance, elevating inflammation and raising blood pressure, all of which can damage the blood vessels behind the Retina.

A medication widely prescribed for bladder conditions for decades has been found to be toxic to the Retina

A medication widely prescribed for bladder conditions for decades has been found to be toxic to the Retina. The drug Elmiron, which has been prescribed to hundreds of thousands of people suffering from chronic pain in the bladder and pelvis, causes a condition that mimics late-stage dry Age-related Macular Degeneration, and can result in permanent vision loss. Learn more at http://bit.ly/2PqYLLH and share with anyone you know who may have had a bladder condition. If you have been prescribed Elmiron, be sure to alert your Retinologist at High Country Macula.
