Summer 2010

What's New at The Koetting Associates?

Visit us on Facebook: The Koetting Associates is now on Facebook. Keep up to date with new events and developments at our practice by becoming a friend and tell us what you like.

Back -to- School: Yes, it's summer but it is not too early to begin thinking about a back-to-school eye examination for your grade school, high school and college students. Things tend to get hectic as school draws near so why not beat the crowd and schedule your exam early? And, remember, it is now a law in Missouri and Illinois that all children entering the public school system for the first time receive a complete eye examination. If you have questions about this or need help with paperwork for school we will be happy to assist you.

What about Glaucoma?: Patients ask us all the time how they would know if they had glaucoma. The fact of the matter is they wouldn't. There are generally no symptoms with glaucoma until it has progressed to vision loss. The most common sign of glaucoma is high pressure in the eyes and the only way to measure pressure is with a comprehensive eye examination. But pressure is not always the only issue in patients with glaucoma. In fact, it is possible to have glaucoma and have normal eye pressure. At The Koetting Associates our comprehensive eye examination will look at all aspects related to glaucoma. And if more sophisticated visual field or retinal thickness testing is necessary, that can also be done right here in our office. So whether you are concerned about glaucoma or any other eye helath condition, schedule an appointment today for the piece of mind in knowing your eyes are healthy. Remember, there is much more to healthy eyes than how you see.

Top Docs: This summer Dr. Castellano and The Koetting Associates will once again be featured in the "Top Docs" issue of St. Louis Magazine. Check out our practice profile in this interesting issue that should be available in August.

Don't forget about sun protection: Now that boating, swimming, bicycling, tennis and golf seasons are in full swing, remember the importance of wearing quality sunwear to protect your eyes from the potentially harmful UV rays from the sun. Studies are showing that these UV rays may play a part in the development of cataracts and macular degeneration. Stop by our office anytime and see our vast selection of quality sunwear including Maui Jim, Oakley and many more.
