What brought you to the First Coast? I was invited from New York to start the LASIK department at the University of Florida, after which I started the Gulani Vision Institute to realize my dream for providing a world-class service in a compassionate setting by performing advanced innovative laser surgeries with a very personalized patient care high-tech, high touch in addition to teaching visiting surgeons at my institute and providing my unbiased leadership to the eye care industry worldwide. I am blessed to have achieved that dream and continue to raise the bar in my profession so patients can aspire for custom-designed surgeries instead of routine procedures and every surgeon gets inspired to seek vision beyond 20/20 What brings patients from around the globe to Jacksonville to have you correct their vision? Since we provide the full spectrum of laser vision corrective surgeries, there are three kinds of patients who seek my services: Those who seek the highest level of vision and dont want to settle for routine LASIK or cataract surgery; patients who have had complications from LASIK or cataract surgery with their surgeons or have had previous radial keratotomy (RK) surgery or side effects of eye surgery and seek to correct their vision; and those who have been told they are not a candidate for surgery due to their complex nature, high astigmatism, keratoconus, thin corneas or dry eyes. Basically, I have set up my institute and work exactly how I would like to be treated myself. Hence, no patient waits at our institute; no one is rushed. I personally see every patient before, during and after surgery. There is no hype or deals and we dont like to advertise. And yet with this simple model, we have made the world fly to us.

Well, thats my job, Nussbaum said, chuckling. no dataAfter battling diabetes for nearly 40 years, Lowe has developed diabetic retinopathy, a consequence of uncontrolled diabetes that can damage small blood vessels in the eye and is the leading cause of blindness among working-age adults. A researcher across campus from the clinic is looking at a different way of potentially blocking the inflammation that can lead to that damage through a potential new drug. Dr. Shruti Sharma of the Center for Biotechnology and Genomic Medicine has a $1.5 million grant from the National Eye Institute to look at basic research into blocking inflammation among epithelial cells in light-sensing retina in the eye, Sharma is looking at a well-known agent in inflammation called interleukin-6 that can affect those cells even though they lack the receptor normally needed for such interaction, an effect called trans-signaling. While that effect had been known for a while it is not something that researchers had focused on in the past, she said.

If these measures do not help, cataract eye surgery is currently the only effective treatment. Drops are placed in your eyes to widen, or dilate, the pupils.

Sharma is looking at an experimental drug that in her early work seems to have blocked that type of action in those cells, using it both in the lab in human cells in the same kind of environment that is there in the eye and in a mouse model of diabetes. The hope is to prevent the barrier disruption to the cells that can cause them to become leaky and create inflammation, an early hallmark of the disease. The mouse model allows Sharma to test the compound in both late and early stages of the disease to see if it she can prevent diabetic retinopathy from happening, she said. Separately, the compound is being tested in human clinical trials in rheumatoid arthritis, which is also promising, Sharma said.

Although non proliferative retinopathy usually does not require treatment, macular enema must be treated, but fortunately treatment is usually effective at stopping and sometimes reversing vision loss. Scatter laser surgery works best before new, fragile blood vessels have started to bleed. To reduce macular enema, a laser is focused on the damaged retina to seal leaking retinal vessels. In more advanced proliferative retinopathy, diabetic fibrous or scar tissue can form on the retina. It’s usually done in your doctor’s office or eye clinic in two or more sessions. High blood pressure in the arteries of the body can damage the retinal arteries and this is called hypertensive retinopathy.  There are three main types of diabetic retinopathy: Non-proliferative retinopathy is an early form of the disease, where the retinal blood vessels leak fluid or bleed.
