Top 5 Causes of Dry Eye

Dry Eye Girl 1280×480

Dry eye syndrome is a common condition that occurs when the eyes cannot produce enough or produce poor-quality tears. Patients can suffer from dry eyes due to a wide range of issues, and if not properly treated by an eye doctor, it can cause damage to the eye’s surface or other eye-related diseases and conditions. That’s why our optometry team at Complete Eye Care with locations in Lawton, downtown Lawton, and Newcastle is here to help diagnose the cause of your dry eyes and how to properly treat the condition. Common causes of dry eye syndrome we see at our clinics include:


Age causes many eye conditions, including dry eye. As you age, the production of tears decreases, making dry eye a common condition for people over the age of 50. Age is a natural thing you can’t prevent, but our eye doctors can recommend treatment like artificial tears to increase your lubrication.

Environmental Factors

The environment you are in can cause dry eyes. For example, a windy, smoky, or dry environment causes tears to evaporate quickly. Additionally, people who spend long hours staring at computer screens fail to blink enough or give their eyes the necessary breaks, leading to dry eye syndrome.

Medical Conditions

Certain medical conditions can cause dry eye syndrome. Conditions like thyroid disorder, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, and Sjogren’s syndrome can cause dry eyes. Treating these underlying medical conditions can help relieve your dry eyes.


Some medications dehydrate your eyes. For example, medicines such as antidepressants, hypertension drugs, pain relievers, hormones, and chemotherapy drugs dry up your eyes. Be sure to talk to your eye doctor for alternative treatment options.

Laser Eye Surgery

Laser eye surgery is a popular procedure used to correct certain vision conditions. However, some people develop dry eyes after surgery. This is because the procedure penetrates some nerves in the cornea, reducing tear production.

Big-and-Bold: Spring 2021 Trends

woman wearing bold blue eyeglasses

Go bold or go home!

The big-and-bold glasses craze is going stronger than ever! Complete Eye Care Newcastle has already previewed the spring lines and frames are getting even BIGGER and… more ROUND! Personally, we love the Bold look.

This spring’s fashion is resembling the 80’s and 90’s trends of large, face-covering frames. (Extra protection for COVID-19, anyone?)

What’s the biggest overall trend, you ask?

Oversized Frames

Vera Wang is queen of oversized lenses – always one of the first to put a fantastic spin on later years’ fashion.


Big and Round

Like these DNKY wizard-style turtle shell frames.


Thin-Rimmed Frames – an Understated elegance

Thin frames are in – and it’s not just for women. We like this style so much, we have two examples! Thin frames are in all over! Maui Jim (top) is a perfect muted color with the style just bold enough for any man. Vera Bradley (bottom) is conquering the natural-bold.



Transparent & Neutral

Kate Spade is typically known for the bold colors and styles, however, this spring 2020 they are moving to a more neutral-bold style. They never disappoint!


Geometric Glam

Tom Ford is known for the fashion-forward statements in clothing and eyewear, and 2021 is no different.



BVLGARI nailed it. Color is IN.


Cat-Eye – For the Drama you were born with

These GUESS cat-eye is bound to bring you the drama you’re desperately needing for for quarantine outfit on Zoom. In 2020, the face has to say it all!


Blue Light Reading Glasses


Face shape is huge when deciding what frames are right for you. If you need help deciding your face shape or what frame is right for you, visit Complete Eye Care – Newcastle’s optical frame experts to assist you in choosing the most fashion forward frame for your face. For now, here’s some standard guidelines.

  • Oval Faces: Go larger with slightly structured corners to help streamline your face. Try to find a frame that hits right at your eyebrow.

  • Round Cheeks: Look for styles with lenses shaped more like a square or rectangle rather than a circle.

  • Heart Shaped Faces: Rock the feline! The cat-eye is very feminine and flirty.

Color is a secondary factor, but very important to keep in mind as this season rolls out brighter and bolder colors.

  • Warm Skin Tones
    • Warm colors: Oranges, reds, golden yellow, amber, and honey gold.
    • Cool Colors: Warmer greens and blues such as olive, deeper turquoise, green moss, fern, pesto, and red-purples (think: magenta and orchid shades).
    • Neutral: Taupe, hot chocolate, creamy whites, winter wheat, and latte.
    • Avoid: Icy and Jewel tones
  • Cool Skin Tones
    • Warm Colors: Bright blue, royal blue, sapphire, emerald, amethyst, deep purples, lavender, and lilac.
    • Cool Colors: Shocking pink (in place of hot pink), cerise, ruby, and bright rose.
    • Neutral: Gray, navy, and white.
    • Avoid: Oranges and yellows.

Our Newcastle / Tri-City area patients can easily find a shape or color that fits them. Check out our cat-eye’s in COACH, Ovals in Oakley, and Hearts in Armani. Ask one of our expert opticians at Complete Eye Care Newcastle to help you find your perfect pair!

Cancer of the Eye?

heroimage0.723995001592941139We had an interesting case this morning. The brown lesion you see on the sclera (the white part of the eye) is called Primary Acquired Melanosis of the conjunctiva (PAM). This is a potentially dangerous melanocytic lesion that can lead to melanoma of the eye. Most patients have no symptoms, but may notice the cosmetic changes on the surface of the eye. Some patients may notice it changing size, shape, or color (darkening). A small percentage of patients may notice the area being red.

Typical symptoms of eye cancer are:

  • Shadows, Curtains, Floaters/Wiggly Lines in your field of vision
  • New or worsening blurred vision, often only in the eye affected
  • Dark patch in your eye, growing larger
  • Partial or total loss of vision
  • Bulging of one eye
  • A lump on your eyelid or in the eye that is getting bigger
  • Pain in and around your eye (rare)

These symptoms can also be caused by more minor eye conditions, so they’re not necessarily a sign of cancer. However, if you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, see your eye doctor immediately.

Smaller lesions are typically observed by the doctor for changes. A changing or larger lesion would need a biopsy.

In recent studies, only 16% became larger, and around 5% progressed to melanoma. If removed, they can recur, therefore close follow up with your eye doctor is needed.

Sometimes we have found these lesions hiding behind the eyelid. These can be easily missed and require careful examination with a biomicroscope.

We do think there is a correlation with the lifetime accumulation of UV or sun damage. Yet, another reason why sunglasses are a must for all patients. Any patients using a tanning bed should wear UV protective goggles.

Common Causes of Eye Cancer:

  • Light-Colored eyes – if you have blue, grey or green eyes, you have a higher risk of developing eye melanoma compared with people who have brown eyes
  • Light Skin Tone – People with fair skin are more susceptible to developing skin and eye cancer.
  • Use of Sunbeds – Tanning beds are a well-known cause of skin cancer, but it can also increase your risk of eye cancer as well. Always wear tanning goggles!
  • Overexposure to Sunlight – This is also a common cause. It is important to note that eyeglasses without UV protection are cancer-magnifiers. It takes the sunlight hitting your lenses and magnifies it onto your skin around your eye. The skin surrounding your eye is incredible sensitive and delicate, so sunglass protection, Transition lenses, or prescription sunglasses is a must.

If the cancer or lesion is left untreated, possible treatments include:

  • Brachytherapy – tiny plates lined with radioactive material called plaques are inserted near the tumor and left in place for up to a week to kill the cancerous cells
  • External radiotherapy – a machine is used to carefully aim beams of radiation at the tumor to kill the cancerous cells
  • Surgery to remove the tumor or part of the eye – this may be possible if the tumor is small and you still have some vision in your eye
  • Removal of the eye (enucleation) – this may be necessary if the tumor is large or you have lost your vision; the eye will eventually be replaced with an artificial eye that matches your other eye
  • Chemotherapy for skin cancer around the eye

The treatments are scary, vision- and life-threatening. So if you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, contact your eye doctor right away.

Will you lose vision from Macular Degeneration? The answer is in your Genes!

Slide of a senior man with low vision or macular degenerationComplete Eye Care has been doing genetic testing for patients at risk for losing vision from Macular Degeneration for almost a decade now.

This technology is still amazing. For the first time ever, we can predict which patients are at risk of losing vision from Macular Degeneration. The testing is simple. We use a small brush to swab the inside of the cheek. Next we send that sample to the lab. About 4-6 weeks later, we receive the results and interpret the data.

Based on advanced genetic studies, there are 5 classifications for macular risk. If you are in category 1, you only have a 3% chance of developing sight threatening macular disease. However, if your tests come back as category 5, you have a 90% chance of losing vision due to macular disease.

Macular Risk testing is appropriate for any patient who has a family history of the disease or who has macular disease. The test can be performed on patients any age, including infants.

If you have early macular signs clinically, we have found that most insurance will cover the cost and it is best to treat now rather than later.

What are some common symptoms?

  • a distortion of straight lines in your field of vision
  • a reduction in central vision
  • the need for brighter lighting
  • difficulty adapting to low lights
  • blurriness
  • trouble recognizing faces
  • a blurry spot in your field of vision
  • hazy vision
  • rapidly worsening symptoms

Macular Degeneration doesn’t affect the peripheral vision, it is mostly the center vision that is affected.

What Causes Macular Degeneration?

  • being over the age of 65
  • being Caucasian
  • having a family history of macular degeneration
  • smoking
  • being overweight
  • having cardiovascular disease

Our Lawton and Newcastle Optometrists are experts in their field and are passionate about taking care of your eyes long-term. Dr. Chris Swanson, Dr. Shane Claborn, Dr. Brandon Ross, and Dr. Laura England are experts in their field and have worked many cases like these above in their time.

Oklahoma School for the Blind – Who They Are and Why Complete Eye Care Supports Their Cause


The Oklahoma School for the Blind is one of only 54 schools in the US dedicated to serving the blind and visually impaired. It is the only school in Oklahoma that specializes in vision impairment and the blind from pre-school through 12th grade. Tuition for this education program is completely free for the students and their family.

This school not only teaches basic subjects like mathematics, science, english, and other subjects; but they also enable children to becoming independent by teaching them orientation, mobility, braille, independent living skills, and assistive technology.

This is an incredible program that enables students to live with the vision they lack to live independent and successful lives as adults, catering to their needs specifically that most special education programs don’t have the technology, knowledge or staff to do so.

The Oklahoma School for the blind operates just like public schools most kids attend; They have wrestling, cheerleading, academic teams, and band.

The school is located in Muskogee, Oklahoma. This is quite a drive for most families, so students have dormitory living quarters to live in throughout the school week and bussed home by the school every weekend; all at no cost to them or their family.

Complete Eye Care’s annual Braille Book drive supports this amazing program every year. Your $10 suggested donation will buy one braille book for a student. Our goal is to buy 81 books for all 81 students at this facility from ages Pre-K through 12th grade.

Stop by our Lawton, Downtown Lawton, or Newcastle, Oklahoma, offices to make your tax-deductible donation today.

CRT Lenses

Woman Putting in Contact 1280×480


There are several ways our optometrist treats myopia also known as nearsightedness. One treatment we offer is CRT lenses. If you live in the Downtown Lawton, OK, Newcastle, or anywhere else in the surrounding area, Complete Eye Care is here to help. Here is some more information on CRT lenses.


Corneal refractive therapy, or CRT, is a non-surgical method of improving eyesight. CRT lenses are worn exclusively overnight, meaning you will not need to wear contacts or eyeglasses during the day. CRT lenses put gentle pressure on the eye to correct corneal curvature as you sleep. The process is similar to an orthodontist correcting your bite through a dental appliance worn overnight. Corrected cornea shape allows your eyes to focus and absorb light more effectively.


When worn properly, CRT lenses eliminate the need for daily corrective lens wear. CRT lenses have been approved by the FDA for use by both adults and children. With CRT lenses, vision is easily correctable to 20/40 or better. After examining your eyes, our optometrist will let you know if you are a suitable candidate for this kind of treatment.

CRT Lenses in Downtown Lawton, OK

If you haven’t had your yearly eye exam in the Lawton, Downtown Lawton, or Newcastle, OK, areas, contact Complete Eye Care today. Our optometrist will perform a full eye exam which will show our optometrist whether or not you are a good candidate for CRT lenses. This treatment is perfect for people who don’t like the look or feel of wearing glasses and don’t want to deal with inserting and removing contacts every day. More than 1.5 million people around the world are correcting their myopia with CRT lenses. For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact our optometrist today.

Wearing Glasses During Contact Sports

When you’re trying to win on the field or court, it can be frustrating to have your glasses get in the way. But before putting your tennis racket into storage, know that you have options! It’s entirely possible to don corrective eyewear and still participate in your favorite sport.

Wearing your everyday glasses while playing high-impact sports can be a recipe for disaster. The main reason is that your lenses can easily fall off your face or break during a collision. When your glasses break, not only will your vision be impaired, but you could experience bodily harm from the broken lens.

Options for collision sports include:

  • Sleep vision correction. We can create a pair of custom-fit corneal reshaping lenses that correct your vision while you sleep in them! Yes, this means that you can be free to do your favorite activities without wearing daytime lenses.

  • Contact lenses. You can safely wear contact lenses in most games, and you won’t damage your eyes during a tackle. Though we can’t make the same promise for the rest of you! Make sure to consult with your doctor on the best brand for your eyesight and lifestyle.

  • Sport-specialty glasses. If contacts aren’t an option, consult your optometrist on frames and lenses designed for athletes. Some frames are impact resistant, feature rubber padding, or will fit neatly under a helmet. Polycarbonate lenses with a scratch-resistant coating are more durable, making them less likely to break and scratch. Since there is still a risk of injury, speak with your doctor. Together, you will determine if sport-specialty glasses are a good option for you.

  • Face Masks. While they may not work for every position in every sport, face masks can be an excellent choice for you.


For surfing, kayaking, or other water sports, you have a couple of choices for your vision correction. Correct your eyes while you sleep to be lens-free during the day! Option two is traditional contact lenses. If, however, contacts aren’t a good fit for you, consider prescription goggles!

These plastic alternatives to glasses are made to fit snugly around your face so you won’t lose them. You may even find they give you an edge over the competition since you have sharp underwater vision.


If you’re considering whether or not it’s safe to wear your glasses for sports like tennis or golf, we suggest consulting your optometrist for advice. Sharper vision for these games will always improve your performance. If you can find an option that works for you, take advantage of it!

Remember, there is always a risk of being hit by a stray ball. Keeping that in mind, consult your doctor on the type of lenses, you should be wearing should they get broken during play.


  1. Make sure they fit correctly. If your glasses are continually falling from your face without playing sports, imagine what will happen when you start to sweat! Make sure your new athletic eyewear fits your face snuggly while remaining comfortable.

  2. Keep it light. The lighter the frames, the less you will notice them on your face. Plus, they will be less likely to slide down your nose.

  3. Keep your prescription up-to-date. To be as safe as possible, make sure that you’re seeing your best. Consult your doctor to see how often you should have an exam and stick to the schedule.

  4. Always remember to select sunglasses that provide both UVA and UVB protection!

The most important tip we can provide is to consult your optometrist at Complete Eye Care – Newcastle in Newcastle, Oklahoma, off of 32nd street. They can assist you in finding the right pair so that you can feel comfortable and have fun playing the sports you love. Call us to schedule your eye exam today or schedule online!

Vitamins are Vital to Keeping your Vision Crisp Long-Term!

woman holding vitamin glass water

Maintaining sharp vision requires more effort than eating heaps of carrots. In reality, preserving eye health involves upping your daily dosage of a host of vitamins and minerals.

During your annual exam, your eye doctor at Complete Eye Care can help you determine which nutrients are essential for you. Until then, consider which vitamins and minerals you should be incorporating into your diet and routine.

If you have a relative with Macular Degeneration, you are 50% more likely to develop Age-Related Macular Degeneration compared with people who don’t have relatives with this disease. It’s important to get all of your Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma, and Diabetic Retinopathy screenings along with your yearly eye exam, so you and your doctor at Complete Eye Care can slow the progression of any vision loss!


  • Vitamin A: Preserves a clear cornea and contributes to seeing in low light. It may also be linked to a reduced risk of cataracts and age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD).

  • Vitamin E: Protects cells from free radicals, or harmful molecules that would otherwise cause damage. It is used in multiple daily supplements as a possible treatment for AMD and may reduce the risk of cataracts.

  • Vitamin C: Protects cells from free radicals. It is required to make collagen, a protein that provides structure to the sclera and cornea of the eye. It may also reduce the risk of cataracts.

  • Thiamine – Vitamin B1: Promotes proper cell function and aids converting food into energy. Consuming enough in your diet is related to a reduced risk of cataracts and has been used as a potential treatment for the early stages of DR.

  • Riboflavin – Vitamin B2: Aids in reducing oxidative stress in the eyes and can lower the risk of cataracts.

  • Niacin – Vitamin B3: Helps convert food to energy. In the eyes, it may help prevent glaucoma. However, too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. An excess of niacin may cause cornea inflammation, macular damage, or blurred vision.

  • Vitamins B6, B9, and B12: Combine to generate lower levels of homocysteine, a protein associated with inflammation.

  • Lutein & Zeaxanthin: Filters potentially harmful blue light and prevents eye damage. Additionally, there have been reports of these nutrients being related to prevention and help with cataracts.

  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Increases tear production and reduces inflammation of the eyes.

  • Zinc: Hinders night sight when you have a deficiency. However, consuming more won’t help you see in the dark any better.


If you consume a diverse spread of vegetables, fruit, and protein, you won’t need additional supplementation. Try incorporating these foods into your diet: leafy green vegetables, bell peppers, sweet potatoes, pumpkins, mushrooms, citrus and tropical fruits, nuts, seeds, cooking oils, avocado, whole grains, meat, fish, milk, yogurt. The Lawton Farmers’ Market is a great place to pick up fresh produce full of flavor and nutrients.

If you’re a picky eater or just not getting enough of one or more of these vitamins, you’re in luck! Find a mixture of these nutrients in popular multivitamins used to treat certain eye diseases and promote eye health. A few of our favorites include:

  • MesoPlus Formula– MaxiVision: This vitamin supports general eye health

  • Whole Body Formula – MaxiVision: This vitamin is best for individuals who don’t already take a daily vitamin and still need the extra support for eye health.

If you think you may benefit from one of these supplements, make an appointment at Complete Eye Care. Dr. Chris Swanson, Dr. Shane Claborn, Dr. Brandon Ross or Dr. Laura England can talk through the options for your unique eye health needs.

The Difference in Contact Lenses – Find Your Perfect Fit!

contact putting in woman caucasiam

Do you get the same style of contacts year-after-year? If your contacts are uncomfortable, or if you’ve been told that you can’t wear contacts, your Lawton eye doctor can help you find a better solution. Innovations in contact lens materials and designs are revolutionary!

Review your contact lens options with one of Complete Eye Care’s optometrists! Choosing the right contact lenses for your eyes depends on a number of factors: your vision, the shape of your eye, eye sensitivity, and more. During your annual eye exam, discuss different options with your doctor and decide together which lenses are right for you.

The following guidelines will help you choose the right type of contact lenses for your eyes and your needs.

Hard Contacts Vs. Soft Contacts

There are two very basic lens types: hard and soft. The majority of contact wearers opt for soft lenses. They are generally less expensive and more comfortable. In fact, only 10 percent of contact wearers use hard lenses. However, hard lenses could be a better option if you have a strong astigmatism, are trying to slow down myopia progression, don’t see well after refractive surgery, or if you had/have corneal disease.

Length of Wear

If you choose soft lenses, the next step is to consult with your eye doctor on how long you would like your lenses to last. These days, there are multiple options to choose from, all depending upon your eyes and your lifestyle.

Daily Wear

Commonly used contacts are reusable daily wear lenses. With this lens type, you can remove your contacts at the end of the day for over-night cleaning and reuse them the next day.

Reusable lenses have different lengths of wear before they need to be replaced. Typically, they last anywhere from two weeks to one month. To keep your eyes healthy, be sure to consult your optometrist and replace your contacts as directed.

Daily Disposable

If you’re not able to spend the time caring for your reusable contacts or you suffer from severe allergies, dailies are a great option. Each day, you’ll don a new pair of contacts. Then, at the end of the day, you can throw them away.

Though daily disposables require the least maintenance, they can be more expensive than other lens types. Be sure to weigh convenience over price and determine which is more important to you.

Extended Wear

Extended wear contacts can be worn anywhere from 7 to 30 days, depending on the brand and style. You can wear these lenses overnight, but you will need to remove and clean them as directed.

Keep in mind that while you can wear these lenses overnight, we don’t recommend it. Continuously wearing your contacts can be unsafe for some people, leading to problems like scratches, abrasions, or corneal ulcers.

Single-Vision Vs. Multi Focal

If you need vision correction for either nearsightedness or farsightedness, then single-vision lenses are the clear choice. If, however, you require glasses for both reading and distance, you could benefit from multi-focal contacts.

There are two options for correcting up-close and distance vision impairment at the same time: multifocal lenses or mono-vision. Multifocal lenses are weighted, so when you slip them onto your eye, the contacts will fall into place with distance correction on the top and reading correction on the bottom.

Mono-vision means one eye wears a contact lens that corrects distance while the other eye wears one for nearsightedness. While this type of vision correction can require some time to adapt, many people prefer it over the weighted multifocal lenses.

Find the Perfect Lenses

The best part about choosing your contact lenses is that you don’t need to do it alone. Your expert eye doctor at Complete Eye Care – Newcastle can offer advice and guidance to help you choose the right contacts for your eyes. In fact, we offer take-home trial contact lenses, so you can be sure they are comfortable, correct your vision, and fit into your lifestyle.
