NVISION Surgeon Dr. Brar Travels to Fiji to Help Patients at The Mission at Natuvu Creek

Posted on January 22, 2018

The winter holidays are widely known as the season of giving, and NVISION Ophthalmologist Amarpreet Brar, M.D. is a firm believer. In the week between Christmas and the New Year, Dr. Brar and his family volunteered at The Mission at Natuvu Creek, a non-profit organization in Fiji founded by the Tooma Family Foundation. Since 1998, thousands of patients have received free medical care by hundreds of volunteers who have come to the beautiful island.

While in Fiji, Dr. Brar worked with the staff at Mission and conducted a free eye clinic for several days. This included eye exams and dispersion of glasses to people who could not afford them. He even performed a few pterygium surgeries, which is a growth on the cornea that may distort vision.

Corneal Conditions

Posted on December 12, 2017

The cornea, the part of the eye on which contacts are worn, is a transparent surface where the light passes through and imprints an image on the retina. The light passing through creates a chemically and electronically induced reaction that travels through optic nerves to the brain allowing us to see.

The cornea is normally clear because it does not have blood vessels and has a shiny surface. It must be completely transparent for us to see clearly and is extremely sensitive to light because it has more nerve endings in the body than anywhere else.

Diabetic Eye Care

Posted on December 12, 2017

If you are diabetic, there is something you should know about your eyes. Diabetic retinopathy is an eye disease that can affect the retina and cause a loss of vision if not diagnosed and treated early. Tiny red dots, known as microaneurysms, are small retinal hemorrhages that develop in the eye, and can cause a lack of blood flow. When the eye is lacking blood flow, blood vessels can form in the wrong places in the eye and cause scaring and tearing of the retina, and this can result in vision problems.
