AAO 2014- Dr. Rosselson

Dr. Rosselson, attended the American Academy of Opthalmology meeting in Chicago earlier this month. She took part in a day long symposium at the Glaucoma Subspecialty Day, learning about the latest developments in the diagnosis and management of pseudoexfoliation syndrome, microincisional glaucoma surgery, glaucoma management in the age of electronic medical records, and other topics. During the rest of the meeting, Dr. Rosselson attended lectures on a variety of topics, from ocular surface disease to utilization of OCT technology in the diagnosis of vision loss, uveitis dilemmas to headache diagnosis and treatment. She also explored the exhibits and was excited to check out the newest microscopes. “The advances in the technology are just fantastic. The new scope, which we should be using in the new year in the Hoffman Estates Surgery Center offers unprecedented quality images. I think using the new equipment will make surgery an even smoother experience for the patient and a more rewarding one for me.” said Dr. Rosselson.

One pearl learned during the headache lecture was that recently, US and international headache societies have given a name to a problem she often hears about from patients. “Primary stabbing headache” is the term for episodic, brief, sharp, “needle in the eye” sensations occurring 1 to many times a day in or around the eye. This is a benign disorder and can be treated with medication of extremely bothersome. “It’s nice to finally be able to tell patients that what they experience is a discrete recognized phenomenon, and nothing to worry about.”

Dr. Rosselson looks forward to incorporating all the other innovations in surgical techniques, diagnostic modalities, and management options into her daily practice and offering patients the most advanced and thorough glaucoma and comprehensive eye care.

Traditionally, presbyopia, which happens to all of us as we age, has always meant glasses for clear reading vision. It's a condition not even correctable by laser vision correction. Luckily, there is an option. Refractive lens exchange allows patients a clear alternative to reading glasses and is capable of reducing or eliminating presbyopia by using an advanced multifocal intraocular lens.

Keratoconus describes a cornea that weakens as collagen fibers deteriorate, causing the cornea to adapt a cone-like shape. Keratoconus can cause blurred vision, light sensitivity, glares, and decreased night vision. In its early stages, keratoconus may be treated with the use of prescription glasses or contact lenses. Keratoconus is also one of the most common reasons for corneal transplant, and one of the most successful.

It's estimated that a million or more Americans have glaucoma and don't even know it. People with glaucoma often do not experience any symptoms until they begin losing their peripheral vision. One of the scariest things about glaucoma is that it usually has no symptoms in the early stages, earning glaucoma the name "silent thief of sight." Anyone can be at risk, so it's important to have your vision regularly examined.
