Preventing Eye InfectionsStreaming Video - 2009
While some eye infections are common and treatable-such as conjunctivitis, or pinkeye-other infections are more serious and, in a matter of hours, can totally destroy a patient's eyesight. This program features case studies involving typical and extreme eye infections, explores ways to prevent and treat related complications, and looks at what's on the horizon related to eye infection research. Topics include the special care needed by seniors and contact lens wearers as well as infections that can result from cataract surgery. Expert commentary comes from Dr. Harry Flynn of the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute and Dr. Eric Donnenfeld, an ophthalmic consultant.
