On page 4, learn about the most recent technology in vision correction and cataract treatment. Femtosecond laser makes eye surgery easier, more accurate, and with longer lasting outcomes, than those by traditional surgical means. Next, parents will want to read the feature on common pediatric eye diseases. You’ll find important advice on how to monitor and treat eye problems in children. 


For those with eye irritation from tear production problems – either too much or too little – on page 12, our ophthalmologist who specializes in the lacrimal canal system, tells you how to lessen the severity of symptoms. Following is a feature about age-related eye diseases, including how to protect your eyes as you age, before problems arise. 


A recurring theme in each one of these articles is that you cannot detect all eye diseases through self-observation. When symptoms appear, it’s often already too late to correct them. Therefore, take note of our recommendations for routine eye checkups, which will help you to continue seeing the world without the worry of hidden eye problems.


As always, if you need further advice or want to leave comments about our magazine, we encourage you to e-mail us at betterhealth@bumrungrad.com. We look forward to hearing from you, and here’s wishing you better health and better vision.
