Laser vision correction (LASIK, PRK, LASEK) can correct nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. Although there is currently no correction for presbyopia, some patients desire monovision where one eye (dominant eye) sees for distance and one eye (non-dominat eye) sees for close. If this is acceptable after a trial with contact lens to the patient, it is reasonable to proceed and customize the treatment with this prescription. Many of our patients are not sure if they are a candidate because of their age. At North Shore Eye Care in Smithtown on Long Island in New York, Dr. Jeffrey Martin, Dr Faye Knoll, Dr. Lawrence Zweibel and Dr John Mauro feel that this is an important issue.

Neurotrophic keratitis is a condition brought about by diseases that cause decreased corneal sensation.  The most common is herpes simplex and herpes zoster followed by trigeminal neuralgia surgery and acoustic neuroma.  My sister was diagnosed with acoustic neuroma about 4 years ago.  She has just undergone a second surgery to remove a recurrence of the tumor a few weeks ago.  She began complaining of numbness on the right side of her face and blurry vision. Upon examination, I noticed that she had decreased corneal sensation and early signs of neurotrophic keratitis.  There are 3 stages of neurotrophic keratitis ranging from 1. punctate areas of epithelial breakdown, 2.  epithelial defects, and 3. corneal ulcers and perforation.   Early diagnosis and treatment is essential to prevent blindness from stage 3 neurotrophic keratitis.
