- Dr. Powell, Dr. Gildersleeve and Staff

Are you over age 40, already wearing contact lenses, or want to wear contact lenses, and having a hard time with your near vision?

Our new bifocal contact lenses may be your answer!

The new contact lenses are high-performance, monthly lenses for people needing bifocals. This new technology in lens material provides high oxygen performance to keep your eyes white and healthy. The material holds water within the lens making it naturally wet, soft and resistant to dehydration or protein deposits. Meanwhile, the Balance Progressive Technology lens design delivers excellent vision at any distance - near, far, and intermediate.

For a ONE WEEK FREE TRIAL of these new soft contact lenses specially designed for patients in need of a bifocal, please call our office at 402.475.9113 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Powell or Dr. Gildersleeve. You must have had an eye exam within the past twelve months to be eligible for this special offer, or we will need to examine your eyes prior to the contact lenses trial week.

We are participating in the Vision & Learning Project

The Nebraska Foundation for Children's Vision has established a pilot program with a goal to meet the needs of children who fall through the cracks when it comes to vision care. By participating in this grant-funded initiative, we will provide vision exam services and prescription lenses if required. If you or someone you know can benefit from this, please contact our vision center.

Important eye care precautions for diabetics

Dr. Anthony Komaroff (Doctor K) is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. He also has a Q&A column that runs in the Lincoln Journal Star. Recently, the topic arose of how diabetes affects vision.

We emphasize the key points of the article for you here:
  • Diabetic Retinopathy occurs when high a level of blood sugar damages the small blood vessels in the retina; this is the most serious eye problem that affects diabetics.

  • This disease can lead to severe and sudden vision loss and even blindness.

  • Prevention is enhanced by being proactive! Be sure to carefully control your blood sugar levels and adhere to the standard of annual vision exams.

Sample Retinal Photograph
New Technology at Our Office

We have recently added a Retinal Camera to our office software system. This specialized microscope is used for capturing an image of the interior surface of the eye, and allows us to view a patient's retinal photos on large HD monitors in our exam rooms. This technology is extremely useful for tracking the progression of an eye disease, and allowing patients to see it first hand. The addition of this technology is another example of our mission to provide the best treatment and education to our patients.
