Dr. Alan S. Bishop Offers New Technology to Screen and Treat Patients At Risk of Macular Degeneration

Easton Eye Care has enhanced their high standard of eye care for Maryland’s MidShore community with the addition of new screenings and treatments that will help evaluate the long-term risk of Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and less- than-optimal visual performance.

Dr. Alan S. Bishop and his team at Easton Eye Care have put together a complete solution to help patients improve their vision today and to help protect sight from macular degeneration over the long term. The new screening technology — macular densitometer instrumentation, which is widely used in the world’s leading vision institutes — will be combined with MacuHealth dietary supplements and BluTech indoor and outdoor protective lenses to provide the best care for Easton Eye Care’s patients.

“For decades I’ve watched patients and family members lose vision from macular degeneration,” Dr. Bishop said recently. “It is a horrible degenerative disease that takes away central vision and robs people of their independence. With modern instrumentation, genetic testing, and a careful history, we can more accurately assess our patient’s risk of developing macular degeneration, and we can improve a patient’s chances of preventing the disease.”

About age-related macular degeneration (AMD): AMD is a leading cause of vision loss in Americans aged 60 and older; it affects an estimated 10 million people in the U.S. AMD blurs the sharp, central vision needed for activities such as reading, sewing, and driving. It is a painless disease that destroys the macula — the part of the eye that helps you see fine detail — and it has multiple contributing factors ranging from family history to low macular pigment.

Sunsale Event Raises Money, Food for Pet Pantries in Three Counties

PP EE Post (383 x 400)Easton Eye Care’s recent annual patient appreciation event did well – bringing in more business than any previous event – and did good – benefiting local charity Pet Pantries, Inc. in very significant ways. Pet Pantries raised a significant amount of money – bolstered by a very generous donation from Easton Eye Care – and took in 200 pounds of pet food for the pantries of the Humane Societies of Talbot, Caroline, and Dorchester Counties.

“The greatest thing is all the new fans and supporters we gained throughout the day,” said Barbara Mulready, President of Pet Pantries, Inc. “We had huge crowds all day – despite the threat of bad weather. A lot more people know our name and what we do; now when they see the Pet Pantries’ collection bins at our events in the communities we serve they will know that they are for pet food donations, and they will know where their donations go.

“I want to thank everyone at Easton Eye Care – Dr. Bishop and all his staff – more than I can say for their generosity and for all the support they gave us. They assigned wonderful staff to us who were so enthusiastic, and the advertising and social media outreach they did helped raise awareness of Pet Pantries and our cause. We could never have reached this number of people without the help of Easton Eye Care and the hard work of Mary Kramer (VicePresident of Pet Pantries, Inc.).”

Alan S. Bishop, O.D., of Easton Eye Care, thanked his team of professionals for their tireless service to nearly 200 patients during the day. Everyone had positive feedback about new eyewear styles and the latest technology for detecting the risk of and preventing macular degeneration.

“I was especially encouraged by the interest and support for Pet Pantries,” Dr. Bishop continued. “We are very fortunate to have such a dedicated and compassionate group of volunteers who spotlight the need to keep the pantries stocked at the animal shelters of the region. It was a humbling and inspiring day for me, and we all had fun serving our patients.”

Amy Childs of Easton, an instructor at Chesapeake College, won the iPad mini grand prize in the Pet Pantries raffle. The iPad was one of several prizes donated by Easton Eye Care.
