Still Open? By Dr. Martha Jay, Ophthalmologist at Lakeshore Eye Care Professionals, Mequon and Saukville, Wisconsin

October 11, 2011

We keep getting calls from patients asking, “Are you still open?”  The reason for the confusion is construction, lots of it, in and around both the Mequon and Saukville offices.  The answer is a resounding “YES, we are very much open at both locations.”

The Mequon office may look like the roof is off, but it is very much there.  You can thank our new landlord, Scott Yauck of Cobalt Partners, for the down-and-out look!  He is adding a new front on the building and a Starbucks on the south end.  Parking is available in front of our office and in the gas station lot to our north.  Construction is slated to be completed by Thanksgiving.

As for Saukville, it looks like the road construction along Green Bay will continue for some time.  When it is done, however, we will be able to make a left turn more easily into and out of the driveway because they are adding a central turning lane.  So there will be an advantage to putting up with this in the long run.  Also, now traffic moves more slowly through the area so it is actually a bit safer.

Thank you, loyal patients for putting up with this “progress.”  Just leave a little extra time and you should be able to get in and out of both offices without difficulty.  Makes you look forward to winter, doesn’t it?  And please don’t let these little interferences get in the way of you taking care of your eyes.  We still offer the latest in medical and surgical eye care for patients of all ages.  See you soon!

Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis (GPC) by Dr. Mark German, Optometrist, Mequon, Wisconsin

October 5, 2011

Visualize This!

While it sounds like quite a mouthful, giant papillary conjunctivits (GPC) is a common eye condition.   It's actually an allergy to contact lenses.   It generally occurs in patients who have worn contact lenses for years.  They come in concerned that their contacts are no longer comfortable and that they have a slight discharge from their eyes.  "But I've worn contacts for years without problems" is their response when told of the diagnosis.  It's precisely that long duration of wear that triggers the condition.

Patients with asthma, hay fever or animal allergies may be at greater risk of developing GPC.  This condition is believed to be a reaction to protein deposits building up on the contact lenses.  The name comes from what we see when we flip the upper eyelid: 1-2 mm bumps called "giant papillae".

Dr. Mark E. GermanThe key to treatment is decreased lens wear time, frequent replacement of the contacts and diligent cleaning of the lenses each day.  Disposable contacts help because they are discarded before the protein builds up.  Sleeping in contacts has to stop.  Besides the above, treatments may include allergy drops or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drops.  Once the GPC clears up, the patient may want to consider LASIK vision correction to avoid a recurrence.

Are you having problems with your contact lenses?  Or are you due for a thorough eye examination?  We are here to help. Dr. Mark German is an Optometrist practicing with Lakeshore Eye Care Professionals in Mequon and Saukville, Wisconsin.

Dr. German is accepting patients of all ages into his practice.  Most insurance plans honored.  Call 262-241-1919 for an appointment or more information.

Electronic Medical Records are coming to Lakeshore Eye Care by Dr. Martha Jay, Ophthalmologist in Mequon and Saukville, Wisconsin

By admin
September 19, 2011

Lakeshore Eye Care may be an independent group of doctors, not part of any large hospital group, but we aren’t going to be left behind in the conversion to electronic medical records.  You may have seen the equipment being moved into the exam rooms at both our offices and now we are “Going Live.”  That means that last week we began to convert to electronic records and will eventually be able to discard our old paper charts.

Why go through all that trouble and expense?  There are many advantages to electronic medical records but the most important one is accuracy and better ability to communicate with our patients and referring doctors.  No longer will our staff be struggling to decipher the handwriting of a certain doctor (could that be me?) to understand the examination results and plan. There will also be a savings in time and paper as we are able to just modify each patient’s information rather that completely rewriting it each time they come in.

Dr. Martha F. Jay

Martha F. Jay, Ph.D., M.D.

But change is not easy so we ask for your understanding while we go through this transition.  We may be requesting different information when you schedule and at first may be a bit slower.  But we have a great staff – dedicated to learning new tasks and making our patient’s experience at Lakeshore Eye Care the best it can be.  Thanks for your patience.

On another topic, Flex Spending plan deadlines are coming up so be sure to schedule your LASIK screening exam before committing funds for 2012 as not everyone is a good LASIK candidate.

Are Your Contact Lenses "Fit"? By Dr. Mark German, Optometrist in Wisconsin

By admin
September 12, 2011

Often I am asked at the end of an eye exam for a contact lens prescription.  Unlike a glasses prescription, a contact lens prescription requires an actual fitting of the contacts on the eye. As this is an extra service, it is not usually included in a regular eye examination.  An improperly fit contact lens can lead to serious eye problems such as corneal abrasions or even corneal ulcers.

What is involved in a contact lens fitting?  Several measurements are made of the cornea, or front part of your eye, to determine the appropriate size and the curvature for the contacts.  The optimal contact lens material is then chosen to provide the best possible comfort and vision.  The contact lens is then checked on the eye with a microscope to ensure a proper fit and optimal vision.

The next part of the contact lens fitting involves education. You could have the perfect contacts but if you are not caring for them correctly you could still get into serious trouble. The wearing schedule and cleaning regiment needs to be understood. For those new to contacts, learning how to put them in and take them out may take some time. You want to leave that appointment seeing well, understanding how to care for your contacts and realizing the warnings signs of trouble that would necessitate an immediate appointment.

Dr. Mark E. GermanMost people do very well with contact lenses but there is a tendency to not take the fitting and care seriously.   So call for your appointment today to be sure your contacts are "fit".

NOT ALL LASIK IS CREATED EQUAL by Dr. Martha Jay, LASIK Surgeon in the Milwaukee Area

iLASIK with IntraLase and VISX Star4 S4 Lasers

If you are interested in LASIK the first thing you need to know is that “Not all LASIK is created equal.”  The key elements to success with LASIK involve taking advantage of the latest blade-free technology, selecting an experienced LASIK surgeon and being sure your follow-up care is done by the doctor – not delegated to para-professionals.

A common question posed to our staff is: “How much is LASIK?” This misses the point. Price is not the most important factor.  You only have LASIK once so you want it done right. Your decision about how and where to have your LASIK procedure will affect your vision for the rest of your life.

But you are in luck, right here in Ozaukee County you have one of the most experienced LASIK surgeons in Wisconsin.  In fact I was the first doctor in the Milwaukee area to use a laser for refractive surgery and to adopt blade-free LASIK.  Thousands of my patients have experienced freedom from glasses and contact lenses after refractive surgery.  .

Dr. Martha F. Jay

Martha F. Jay, Ph.D., M.D.

Since 2005 I have been exclusively offering blade-free LASIK.  By using two lasers instead of one it is almost impossible to have a complication during the procedure.  This added precision convinced the Navy to allow their “Top Gun” fighter pilots to have LASIK with the exact same equipment I use in my practice.

So have LASIK but do it right.  Take the first step today by calling 262-241-1919 for your free screening exam to see if LASIK is an option for you.  Visit our web site at www.LakeShoreVision.com for more information.


BACK TO SCHOOL EYE CARE By Dr. Mark German, Optometrist at Lakeshore Eye Care Professionals, Mequon and Saukville, Wisconsin

August 5, 2011

What happened to summer?  The kids are headed back to school so you probably have had to get supplies and maybe some new clothes were needed.  But did you overlook their annual eye examinations?

Because they are still growing, children’s vision changes quickly so needs to be monitored regularly to be sure they are seeing optimally.  Sometimes kids are not the best judge of their vision, especially during the summer when distance vision is not as important as in the classroom.  It is not uncommon for a child to come in not being able to see the big “E” on the eye chart but having no visual complaints.

If your children are in glasses or contact lenses, they need an eye examination each and every year.  If they were found to have perfect vision in the past, then probably every two years is sufficient.

A complete eye examination of a child involves an evaluation of vision, a measurement for glasses if indicated, a color vision test, a test for depth perception, a thorough examination of eye movements and a dilated examination of the back of the eye.

Dr. Mark E. GermanPut us on your list for “Back to School” readiness so blurred vision doesn’t get your children off to a poor start this school year.  Call to schedule their complete eye examinations today.  After school hours available.

WHAT’S NEW IN CONTACT LENSES by Dr. Mark German, Optometrist in Mequon and Saukville, Wisconsin

By admin
August 1, 2011

Are you less than enthusiastic about your current contact lenses?  If so it may be time to consider some of the newer contact lenses out there.  Common contact lens problems include inconsistent distance vision, discomfort especially towards the end of the day, more problems reading small print and difficulties handling the contacts.

One new contact is the Acuvue TruEye one-day contact lens.  This lens is easier to handle than other one-day contacts on the market and provides superior comfort.  It works well for distance vision and mono-vision for those of you over a certain age who need help with reading.  The problem with one-day contacts in the past has been that they were very thin so were a struggle to get in and dried out easily.

And Ciba has a new bifocal contact lens that has the advantage of improved comfort and comes in three reading powers.  This Air Optix has a central reading portion that provides more natural reading vision and excellent distance vision as well as improved comfort.  The drawback of many previous soft bifocal contacts has been that night vision was impaired due to the ring construction.

Dr. Mark E. GermanBut your contact lens problem could be dry eyes, the wrong prescription or astigmatism so there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to contact lens fitting.  Call us for an appointment so we can assess your needs and see if it is time to consider a change in your contacts.

The pre and post exams were done with all questions answered and concerns removed.  Dr. Jay and staff are highly recommended. If she determines one is ready for cataract surgery, do not hesitate to schedule it! The Toric implants gave me distance vision which I never had all my 67 years of life, plus removing my astigmatism. Yeah!"

Jane had cataract surgery with Dr. Martha Jay in 2011 with Toric lens implants.

Robert, Architect

From Robert, Architect: "I feel like I am seeing in HD again! It is worth going with the multi-focal lens.  My brother didn't have the option and he still needs glasses to read.  It's nice not to have to worry about that.  The staff at Lakeshore Eye Care was always pleasant.  The staff and Dr. Jay did a very good job of explaining what the surgical procedure would be like and what to expect from the results."

Robert had cataract surgery with Dr. Martha Jay in 2011.  He elected to upgrade to the ReSTOR multi-focal implants in both eyes because he was frustrated with glasses.

James had cataract surgery with Dr. Martha Jay in 2011 with the ReSTOR multi-focal implants.

Peter, Retired

From Peter, Retired: "My distance vision is very good after my cataract surgery and I only need glasses for reading.  I had the Toric lens implants.  The procedure was painless and only took 15 or 20 minutes.  Everything went smoothly, just the way Dr. Jay explained it."

Peter had cataract surgery with Dr. Martha Jay in 2011 with the Toric lens implants.

From Barbara, RN: "My vision has really improved since I had cataract surgery.  Now I can do things more easily and can see more clearly.  Everything was explained before the procedure so I could make an informed decision about the implant options and the surgery. Between the written literature and Dr. Jay's information, all my questions were answered. I would really recommend that you just do it if you have cataracts! I did not know how much I was missing.  Not anymore! There was absolutely no discomfort.  I am glad I made the decision to have cataract surgery and that I decided to go for the ReSTOR implants."

Barbara had cataract surgery with Dr. Martha Jay in 2011 with ReSTOR multi-focal implants in both eyes.

Eugene, Retired

From Eugene, Retired: "Dr. Jay is a very good doctor for your eyes!"

The worst part of the whole procedure is putting in the eye drops!"

Cindy had cataract surgery with Dr. Martha Jay in 2011 with the ReSTOR premium lens implants.  She was very near-sighted before her cataract surgery so now views the world much more clearly.

From Kathleen, Public Relations Consultant/Writer: "Dr. Jay and the staff in her office and the hospital were extremely professionals and caring.  I felt completely confident in Dr. Jay's capable hands.

Renee had iLASIK Vision Correction with Dr. Martha Jay in 2010.  She elected to have mono-vision correction so she could see both far-away and close-up after the procedure.  She would not have been a candidate for LASIK with the blade due to thin corneas but did beautifully with blade-free LASIK.

Sue had iLASIK Vision Correction with Dr. Martha Jay in 2010.

WHAT IS A STYE? By Dr. Martha Jay, Milwaukee area Ophthalmologist

By admin
July 11, 2011

You’ve seen it or maybe had one yourself.  It’s a red and tender bump on the eyelid.  A stye (also spelled "sty") develops when a gland at the edge of the eyelid becomes infected.  The medical term for a stye is hordeolum.  It can occur on the inside or outside of the eyelid.   Styes are not harmful to your vision but can become quite uncomfortable and unattractive.

Initial symptoms of a stye include pain, redness, tenderness and swelling in the area. They are very common this time of year with the warmer weather as we are perspiring more.  The glands around the eyelid that are affected are called meibomian glands and they are sebaceous glands or sweat glands.

A stye results from an acute infection of these meibomian glands that occurs after they become clogged.  A stye also may arise from an infected hair follicle at the base of an eyelash. The bacterium Staphylococcus aureus is responsible for 90-95% of cases of styes.   A stye can also develop as a complication of a low-grade eyelid infection called blepharitis.

Dr. Martha F. Jay

Martha F. Jay, Ph.D., M.D.

Treatment begins with applying warm compresses over the affected area four times per day and cleansing the area with baby shampoo twice daily.  A prescription antibiotic ointment that is safe around the eyes may also be necessary.  The stye may rupture and drain, resulting in quicker healing.  If not, occasionally lancing in the office is required.

Give us a call should you be bothered by a stye or other eye problems.  We have three doctors and two offices in Ozaukee County for your convenience.

Dr. Martha Jay is part of the eye care team at Lakeshore Eye Care Professionals.  Her other colleagues are Dr. Mark German and Dr. Josephine-Liezl Cueto.  They offer a full array of medical and surgical eye care options including general eye care, blade-free LASIK Vision Correction, small incision cataract surgery, glaucoma treatment, macular degeneration treatment, dry eye options, contact lens fitting and much more.  They have two offices in Ozaukee County, one in Mequon and the other in Saukville.  Both are minutes from Milwaukee just off Highway 43.
