It has gone from -9.50 to -19.00 in a little over a yr. Is there ANYTHING besides glasses available to help either slow this down or correct it? I dont see an end in sight (no pun intended). Being a mother I of course am concerned about things like Optic Nerve Hypoplasia even though this hasnt been a diagnoses. I&#39;m just trying to seek out anything I can to his condition and bc his is &quot;unique&quot; in the fact apparently surgery wont help bc its an optic nerve deformity. I&#39;m frustrated and have spent over $1000 in changing his lenses out in the course of a year.

These individuals deserve the same medical treatment as all other adults. Like Raymaker says, direct involvement from the autistic community could be a significant factor in improving health care for autistic people. Hopefully these findings and efforts from the autistic and medical communities will inspire a shift in policy to accommodate people dealing with autism, Asperger’s Disorder and other conditions associated with Autism Spectrum Disorder.Cappolino Dodd Krebs LLPhttp://www.birthtraumalaw.com/autism.htmlnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8827791643309428599.post-29887195664579127542012-12-19T17:06:16.662-06:002012-12-19T17:06:16.662-06:00One can&#39;t ignore the studies regarding anesthe...One can&#39;t ignore the studies regarding anesthesia and the potential for future cognitive impairment. This is a work in progress and the pediatric specialties are following closely. Like anything in medicine (and you should be well-versed since you received an &quot;Excellence in Medicine&quot; award) you have to consider the risk-vs.-benefit ratio. If I have a young patient with a 40 PD decompensated exotropia who is in danger of developing irreversible amblyopia and loss of stereoacuity, 30-40 minutes of anesthesia for strabismus surgery is not going to prevent him or her from getting into Harvard. [NB vision therapy and patching will not touch a 40 XT]. People need to be properly educated, look at all of the facts, and not over-react.<br /><br />&quot;The Number of Placebo Controlled, Double Blind, Prospective, and Randomized Strabismus Surgery Outcome Clinical Trials: None!&quot; Not entirely false, but there have been many published outcome trials. Search PubMed. As far as placebo-controlled and double-blinded--that&#39;s just ludicrous and not really feasible. The patients will know whether they had surgery. The blinded examiners will also be able to figure out who had surgery and who did not. The only way to blind/mask it is to take one cohort and put them under anesthesia, make an incision, and go through the motions i.e. sham surgery. Another option would be to operate on a cohort of patients without strabismus--to compare outcomes. I&#39;m certain that both scenarios are unethical and any IRB (institutional review board) would not be amused. <br />Speaking of which, I have yet to come across a well-designed and executed vision therapy study without multiple confounding variables. The CITT does not count, though it is legitimate. Its results are often inappropriately extrapolated for all vision therapy. The CITT addressed only a specific problem, namely convergence insufficiency. It did not look at dyslexia, headaches, cortical blindness, reading comprehension, esotropia, and so forth. Moreover it only looked at convergence/orthoptic exercises, not syntonics, yoked prism, low powered reading glasses, pinhole glasses, flashing lights, and the myriad other exercises that often cost patients thousands of dollars out-of-pocket. <br /><br />Orthoptic exercises and surgery can both have excellent results in the hands of a skilled therapist and surgeon, respectively. I hope this cleared up some misconceptions.<br /><br />EA Pennock, MDEPhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/09603185044292416051noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8827791643309428599.post-10268826730035633402012-12-19T17:05:49.619-06:002012-12-19T17:05:49.619-06:00Dr. Maino, I enjoyed reading your blog and you bri...Dr. Maino, I enjoyed reading your blog and you bring up many good points. However, this page in particular has many unfounded claims and untruths. In the spirit of congeniality I&#39;d like to make a few comments. <br /><br />First, surgery is often NOT the first option for treatment of strabismus. I am an ophthalmologist who specializes in pediatrics and strabismus. If there is a non-surgical option for my patients I always recommend it first. I&#39;ve even had some parents of accommodative esotropes question me as to why I prescribe glasses instead of just straightening their child&#39;s eyes (&quot;can&#39;t you just do surgery and be done with it?&quot;). I won&#39;t operate when it&#39;s not appropriate. In fact, I can&#39;t think of any of my esteemed colleagues across the nation who would jump right into strabismus surgery if there were viable non-surgical options. <br /><br />&quot;Strabismus surgery has well [sic] many well-known risks and complications&quot;. ANY surgery has well-known risks and complications. These are spelled out to all surgical candidates. This is how one obtains informed consent. Driving a car, buying a house, and having kids all have inherent risks and complications as well. Life is risk management. <br /><br />&quot;Surgery outcomes for strabismus tend to be awful...&quot; Where do you get your information and where do you live? Your area of the world must be cursed because surgical outcomes are generally very good for children and adults. Granted, there are some instances such as a paretic muscle, restriction, Grave&#39;s, trauma, etc. where it&#39;s not possible to get &quot;perfect&quot; results. Everyone&#39;s expectations need to be realistic. In the hands of a good surgeon; however, the results can be pretty close to perfect. When someone goes from constant diplopia to double vision only when he looks really far in one particular direction--that&#39;s a far cry from &quot;awful&quot;! When my patients can once again read the paper, drive, see the hymnal, play golf, knit, etc. without double vision--that&#39;s a successful surgical outcome. <br /><br />EPhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/09603185044292416051noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8827791643309428599.post-21166199068587061022012-12-07T09:00:33.802-06:002012-12-07T09:00:33.802-06:00Have you seen these glasses?

Sudden salt load is almost certainly the primary trigger for migraines. It&#39;s not pork, or hot dogs, or potato chips, or pizza... it&#39;s the salt in (or on) them. A sudden dose of salty food, especially on an empty stomach, can start a metabolic cascade that ends up in a migraine. It normally starts with vasoconstriction, of course, and is followed by a rebound vasodilation... If the individual is a bit dehydrated, and if the sudden salt load induces thirst (which it usually will)... and if the beverage of choice to quench the thirst is beer or wine, guess what happens when the rebound vasodilation happens? The vasodilating effect of alcohol enhances the rebound and -- M*I^G%R#A@I~N=E!<br /><br />I wrote a paper about this after I graduated ICO, and handed it out to patients who were migraine sufferers. The writing isn&#39;t too polished, but it was published in &quot;The Minnesota Optometrist&quot; in 1982 or 83. One of the books I referenced outlines a biochemical explanation for the onset of a migaine, especially when tied to a sudden salt load. I&#39;ll forward my paper to you, if you&#39;re interested.<br /><br />Gary EdwardsGary Edwardshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/12652894388906084855noreply@blogger.com
