Eye Conditions

  • As the Snow Falls….

    Well, it seems that winter may officially have arrived here in Denver. Today is a cold, dreary, 1/3 rain, 1.3 sleet, 1/3 snow kinda day. Saturday of course, this never happens on Monday, right? As I sit in my home contemplating any activity to occupy my two children, I pick up that faint familiar smell […]

  • Got the Itchies?

    I’m sure I could have used a safer title for my maiden post – we’re talking about itchy EYES here, folks! As I was driving with my wife and two boys the other day, Cindy pointed out that bits of green were starting to appear on the fields that we passed.  This, along with my […]

  • Watery Eyes?!?!!?

    I’ve seen several people this week and talked to even more about the fact that their eyes have started watering spontaneously. All of the sudden, out of nowhere, it seems as if they can’t stop crying. Funny, Mrs. Jones…you were here last year with the exact same problem during the exact same season. This is […]

  • Those little “floaty” things

    We have seen them at one time or another. They have a very scientific name, you know…those little floaty things in your vision. What are they? I must answer that question 5 times per day. I am happy to because really, they are usually nothing bad. They are parts of the vitreous membrane inside your […]
