Last year, the B.C. government expanded the scope of practice to allow optometrists to prescribe eye drops, which, along with other treatments, can work amazingly well, says optometrist Dr. Gurpreet Leekha, a member of the B.C. Association of Optometrists.

"The usual culprits for fall allergies are ragweed pollen and leaf mould," says Dr. Leekha. "Drops provide relief for a host of allergy symptoms from irritated, watery and red eyes to puffy eyelids, itching, mucous discharge and contact lens discomfort."
Prescription eye drops can be used to pre-treat allergies, for acute phases of itching, or for extended use during allergy season so contact lenses can continue to be worn comfortably.
Dr. Leekha says patients should keep in mind that allergy relief can come in many forms, and seeing an optometrist just before or during allergy season is an excellent way to be symptom-free.

"Research suggests that one in four school-aged kids has a vision problem," says Gurpreet Leekha, a doctor of optometry in Victoria, and the referral rate from school screening programs is only about one in eight, which means at least 50 percent of kids who need help are being missed.

Otherwise, we have to teach the brain to accept equal input from both eyes, Leekha explains.

Not only are video games a great motivator (kids don't mind the patch if they get to play while they wear it!), "there is growing evidence that they reduce the time required to restore vision in the weak eye by 20 to 30 percent," says Leekha, who estimates that roughly a third of doctors of optometry now prescribe video games as part of amblyopia therapy.
