A Reminder on Contact Safety
 
 
 
 
An unidentified 67-year-old woman in the UK was recently found to have nearly 30 contact lenses held together by mucus within her eye last November. The unidentified woman was experiencing a strange sensation in her right eye and assumed nothing was wrong and that it was just part of her changing body. At an appointment prior to her upcoming cataract surgery, doctors discovered the source of the sensation, 27 contact lenses!

Diabetic Retinopathy: What You Need to Know
 
 
 
 
Diabetes is a disease that impairs the body’s ability to produce or respond to insulin. This results in an abnormal metabolism of carbohydrates and elevated levels of glucose in the blood. Elevated levels of glucose or high blood sugar over time can lead to diabetic eye disease.

A Personal Message From Dr. Lutz
 
 
 
 
Wow, I can't believe the summer is almost over and we are already in the midst of planning for the new school year. Spending time with the family was the focus this summer and we certainly had our fill. From family trips to the Jersey shore to spending time July 4th in Erie, Pennsylvania on the lake, we had a blast.

My girls are getting excited for the school year, beginning with our oldest, Hannah, who is getting ready to start 6th grade. It will be her first year of switching classes and subjects so she is a little nervous. In addition to school, she will be involved in extracurricular activities such as dance and cross country.

Hayley will be entering 4th grade and has already started practice for her travel soccer team.

Our youngest is probably the most excited to start her school experience in kindergarten this year. It’s a little bittersweet for us to now have all three in school full-time! One thing we have learned quickly is that they get old fast and you need to slow down and really enjoy the time together. The fall is always fun for us, filled with Penn State football games, hayrides, and Halloween parties!

I hope you enjoy your autumn as we will!
