Episode Summary

EDIT
Original air date: 2/7/2012 Comprehensive Eye Exam: If you only get your eyes checked by an optometrist when you need a new Rx for eyeglasses -- it’s just not enough! Every year, an ophthalmologist should give you a comprehensive eye exam, because some of the most common diseases show no symptoms until it may be too late. Host Monica Sweeney, MD, volunteers to show you how easy it is to ensure good eyesight. Keeping Your Sight: Back in the studio, the doctor who gave Dr. Sweeney her exam -- Douglas Lazzaro, MD, Chair of Ophthalmology at SUNY Downstate – gives her his findings, and describes some leading dangers to healthy vision, like cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetes. For more information about keeping your sight at Long Island College Hospital, visit Even One a Day is Bad! So maybe you smoke – or even mooch – one or two cigarettes a day. That doesn’t really count, does it? Find out what Michael Lucchesi, MD, Medical Director at Downstate Bay Ridge tells his patient about the risks in holding out for that last puff. For more information about the plight of the ‘Light Smoker’ at Downstate Bay Ridge, visit Aqua Therapy: After a brutal accident, a man works hard to rehabilitate himself, with help from the physical therapists at Metro SportsMed in Park Slope. But since his hips, legs, and feet cannot yet carry his own body weight, the therapy takes place in the water. From Brooklyn Independent Television's Healthbeat Brooklyn.moreless
