Low Carbohydrate, Plant-Based Diet Could Prevent Glaucoma
A new study suggests a diet rich in plant-based fats and proteins and low in carbohydrates could reduce the risk for glaucoma, a leading cause of blindness.
Twenty years ago, three Central Ohio eye surgeons opened the very first free-standing surgical center dedicated to eyes in the state of Ohio. While surgical centers are now the standard of care for specialties, in 1996, the Columbus Eye Surgery Center on East Broad Street was revolutionary. The three-man surgical team of Dr. Richard Orlando, Dr. Robin Beran, and the now-retired Dr. Robert Bruce were called “foolish” and “crazy” two decades ago when they founded this groundbreaking center. But today, they’re looked at as true medical visionaries.
When it opened its doors, The Columbus Eye Surgery Center took a major step forward in creating a superior level of eye care in Central Ohio. This first-of-its-kind center has provided a way for thousands of patients to have important procedures done on their eyes without ever having to step foot in a hospital. Patients can have any type of eye surgery performed at the Columbus Eye Surgery Center including cataract, retina, eyelid, glaucoma, cross-eyed corrections, cornea transplants and laser procedures.
