Can a healthy diet prevent cataracts?
Cataracts are a leading cause of blindness in the world today. Currently, the only treatment for cataracts is surgical removal of the cloudy lens, which typically is then replaced with an intraocular lens (IOL) during the cataract surgery.

Why is it important to diagnose and treat dry eye disease?
For some, dry eye symptoms such as itchy, burning, stinging eyes may seem like a mere nuisance. However, if left untreated, dry eye disease can have serious consequences including:
- Permanent corneal scarring
- Corneal ulcers
- Increased susceptibility to eye infections
- TearLab Osmolarity Test performed at Chester Eye Center
Equipped with the TearLab Osomolarity System, our optometrists can now use quantitative data at the point of care to aid in the diagnosis of DED and to improve our ability to manage these patients.

Q&A with Dr. Brandon Chester
Dr. Brandon Chester Answers Your Eyecare Questions
Q: When should a person come in to see their optometrist for Dry Eye symptoms and when is it enough to take care of this problem yourself?
The earlier you begin treatment, the faster you can get your symptoms under control. Dry eye does not occur overnight, and it is a chronic eye disease. The mistake most patients make is they wait too long to report their symptoms, so by the time the doctor sees actual signs of dry eye on the ocular surface, it is going to be at least a 3-6 month process to stabilize the tear film and improve their quality of life.
