What Makes Us Different

kat 3If you have visited Winnipesaukee Eye before, you will likely know how keen our optometrist is on helping their patients find solutions that promote both healthy eyes and healthy bodies. The doctors use two methods to manage patient eye health:

1) Treat immediate, acute symptoms with the most current techniques and appropriate prescription medicines to solve the problem.

2) Recomend a regimen of vitamins, minerals and natural dietary supplements to cure chronic eye problems that may stem from other sources. This method has been proven especially benefical for patients with severe and extreme issues that prevent them from living a normal everyday life.

An Example of Method #2 – An Individualized Solution for Dry Eyes

Let’s say you suffer from a case of Dry Eyes, which results from a difficulty in forming tears. The standard treatment solution for this problem involves prescribing drops, ointments and plugs to name a few. Instead of simply providing these solitions and hoping they work, we work to diagnose the true cause of the symptoms by conducting Root Cause Analysis. Why? Because they don’t want to mask the problem – they want to FIX it.

Sometimes, the causes behind Dry Eyes can be easily remedied by suggesting a different type of contact lens, or ensuring that the patient is changing their lenses frequently enough. Other times, the issue is much more complex, and seems to be a mystery or is the manifestation of another health problem.

To treat these issues, the doctors will recommend a system of vitamins based upon their expectations of the underlying causes of the issue.Through ongoing conversations, follow up and monitoring of the patient’s individualized reactions to the supplements, the doctors can help the patient regain normal vision and good eye health.

Each patient is different, and requires a unique recommendation based upon examination.

If you are having an extreme or chronic problem with your eyes, please call us at (603) 524 – 5770 to make an appointment. We will be glad to see how we can help you, and become your partner in finding a solution that will work for you.
