Spring 2016

  

 What's New At The Koetting Associates? 

  • New Instrumentation:   The Koetting Associates is excited to announce the arrival of the iVue Optical Coherence Tomography system to our office. Optical Coherence Tomography, or OCT, is an advanced and sophisticated technology that allows for easy and detailed imaging of a number of structures in the eye. This brief scan can assist our doctors at The Koetting Associates to better detect, treat and manage glaucoma, macular degeneration and a host of other retinal and ocular problems. This new instrumentation will help us continue to provide the latest in quality eye care for our patients. 

 

  • Exciting New Eye Wear:  The Koetting Associates is happy to announce the arrival of Alain Mikli to our collection of designer eye wear. Alain Mikli likes to refer to their colorful styles as "jewelry for the eyes". Of course, we continue to offer other classic designs like Oliver Peoples, Italee, Jimmy Choo, Juicy Couture, Gucci, John Varvatos and much more. We encourage you to stop by our office and view these beautiful eye wear designs.

 

  • Upcoming Events: This spring our office will be hosting two Eye Wear Events. First, on Wednesday, April 13 we will be featuring the aforementioned Oliver Peoples and Alain Mikli frame lines. We will be bringing in an expanded selection of each of these beautiful designs. Then on May 20, and just in time for summer, we will be hosting our annual "Aloha Friday" event. On this day we will be featuring the expansive collection of Maui Jim sunwear, both non-prescription and prescription. Of course we will serve snacks and refreshments throughout each of these days. We hope you will make plans to join us.

 

  • Problems with Dry Eyes and Contact Lenses?  The Koetting Associates is pleased to announce the arrival of 1-Day Acuvue Oasys with HydraLuxe starting in October. This revolutionary new material design features an enhanced network of tear-like molecules that mimic our natural tears and helps keep the lenses feeling moist throughout the day. In addition, the daily disposability ensures you will experience a clean fresh lens every day. And, as an added plus, 1-Day Acuvue Oasys has a UV blocking feature that prevents harmful ultraviolet rays from reaching the natural lens of the eye and the retina. These harmful rays have been associated with the development of cataracts and macular degeneration. Please ask us about this new option next time you're in our office or call us at 314-863-0000.

  • Revolutionary Protection for Your Eyes: We have long known that excessive exposure to UV light may damage your eyes like it damages your skin, accelerating eye aging and the occurrence of cataract. But did you know thatBlue-Violet light may also be harmful? Though some portions of the Blue-Violet spectrum help regulate your sleep/wake cycle and aid in memory, mood and other brain functions, some other portions may be harmful. Excessive exposure to certain portions of the Blue-Violet spectrum has been associated with increased risk for agerelated macular degeneration. Furthermore, Blue-Violet light is emitted from many modern devices used today such as computers, tablets, LED and compact fluorescent lights. Now there is good news! Crizal Prevencia no glarelenses selectively filter out harmful light while letting good light pass through. These lenses may be used in virtually any prescription and are available in our Eyewear Dispensary. For more information you may call us at 314-863-0000 or ask about Crizal Prevencia at your next visit to our office.
