How can I tell if I need an eye exam?
RealAge answeredWhen you're looking for a tip-off to how your eyes are doing, here's one big clue: Check your night vision. Count how long it takes your eyes to recover from bright lights you see at night, especially when driving. Longer than usual? Say, seven seconds, as opposed to three? Might be time for a visit with your eye specialist. If you don't have any risk factors for eye disease and you're under 60, you can probably get by with seeing the eye doc every two years (annually if you're over 60). But go sooner if your eyes are giving you problems. In addition to the night vision test, Michael Roizen, MD, and Mehmet Oz, MD -- authors of the newly expanded YOU: The Owner's Manual -- suggest a couple of other quick do-it-yourself eye checks:Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
Does bacitracin ophthalmic have sulfa in it?
MediGuard answeredMost bacitracin opthalmic preparations do not contain sulfacetamide (sulfa). If you're worried, however, make sure that your doctor and pharmacist are aware of any allergies you might have at the time they (a) write your prescription, and (b) dispense your medication.
What causes episcleritis?
Johns Hopkins Medicine answered
There is no apparent cause for episcleritis, but it can be associated with physical problems that cause inflammation in other areas of the body, or with other rheumatologic conditions, such as rosacea or lupus.
