FAMILY EYE CARE

 

Dr. Amy Lackey sits at the examination equipment in the exam room.

Welcome

 

Whether our eyes are the “window to our soul” or not is debatable, but they definitely give us a glimpse of signs of not only ocular disorders like cataracts and glaucoma, but also systemic problems like cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. The eye is the only place where you can see blood vessels and nerve fibers without an invasive procedure. The disease processes occurring in the ocular tissues are most likely occurring in other areas of the body as well.

 

Since 1990, Dr. Amy Lackey has proudly provided eye care for patients in the North Georgia and Chattanooga area.

Tips for Healthy Eyes

•  Know your family’s history of eye disease.

•  Eat Right. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables, especially spinach, kale, and turnip greens, is important in reducing the risk of macular degeneration.  Eating fish high in Omega-3 fatty acids reduces inflammatory diseases like dry eyes.

•  Maintain a healthy weight. Being overweight increases the risk of developing diabetes and other systemic conditions.

•  QUIT SMOKING or never start. Smoking increases your risk of macular degeneration, cataracts, and vascular diseases that can cause blindness.

•  Protect your eyes. Wear safety glasses to provide protection from foreign objects and sunglasses to protect your eyes from damaging UV radiation.

•  Have a comprehensive dilated eye exam. A dilated exam is the only way to detect many common eye diseases in their early stages.
