On April 13th, 2017 the Men’s Club invited Dr. Senft to speak to their active members. His lecture, Eyes are Everything, focused on Cataracts, Macular Degeneration, and Glaucoma.

Members wrapped up the presentation with a number of insightful questions. Thanks again to all Men’s Club members, especially, President, Bob Rivere, and Program Co-Chairmen, Joe Salz, for their hospitality and presenting Dr. Senft with a Certificate of Appreciation. It was a great day at Westlake!

There is nothing more precious than your health, and setting personal goals can help you maintain your overall wellness. No one knows this better than our own, Lisa Martin Wiedeman O.D., who recently trained for the Miami Marathon and Half Marathon. For months she scheduled practice runs in preparation and finished an impressive 84 out of 610 runners in her age group.
The benefits of an active lifestyle and proper, healthful nutrition extends beyond the waistline: exercise, healthy eating habits, and regular visits to the eye doctor will improve ocular health too. Maintaining a healthy weight and stable blood sugar help keep diseases like diabetic retinopathy in check. An added benefit is that exercise is a great way to release stress as well.

So, as you see the bitter air transitioning to warm and the buds fighting to break through the harsh winter months–look to the spring as your new opportunity to make healthy choices. If you are not quite up for a half marathon, start slowly with parking farther away from your destination or going for a leisurely stroll to get your body moving again. Congratulations to Dr. Wiedeman for reaching her goal and putting her healthy recommendations into practice!

*Remember to always consult with your health care professional before starting any exercise regimen, no matter how small.*

Congratulations are in order to eye technician, Sharon, for passing her exam. She is now officially a Certified Ophthalmic Assistant (COA). This certification is a testament to her skill, competence, and knowledge of the subject matter which, among other content, spanned from history taking to ocular motility to visual assessment. Her countless hours of studying and determination truly paid off!

Sharon has been with the practice for 8 years. Her work ethic and dedication to patient care has made her an integral part of the Del Negro & Senft team. We are so proud of her accomplishment.

Thanks to correspondent Lauren Wanko, NJTV News, for continuing to shed light on the “Silent Thief of Sight,” during Glaucoma Awareness Month. Ralph G. Del Negro, D.O. was featured throughout Wanko’s glaucoma segment, which aired on NJTV News with Mary Alice Williams. Dr. Del Negro discussed glaucoma, prevention and early detection, the subtleties of the disease, and various treatment options. As Dr. Del Negro explained, there is no cure for glaucoma – so the emphasis is placed on early detection and adhering to a customized treatment plan.

Patient John McGlone discussed his experience with this disease personally with Wanko. He recounted how glaucoma affected his vision and how he’s determined to keep his condition stable by following Dr. Del Negro’s treatment plan.
