Dr. Hagan’s leadership roles with the Missouri Society of Eye Physicians and Surgeons over many years, his forceful presence and strong voice at the state capitol and his commitment to the idea that quality care does not end at the door to the surgical suite all demonstrate a profound dedication to his profession, and serve as a shining example for his colleagues.

My eye sight just aint the same no more. I know im aging but do you think it could be one side effect from one of the meds im taking, im having a hard time sometimes even with 300 reading glasses reading what it says on tv from a short distance. When i take them off the wording is just a blur. Its starting to bug me, wish i had money for lasik. Thanks PainLady213

Hello Dr. Iam a 62 year old healthy female.  I have sufferred from hand eczema for years. However, it has cleared up for several years now after dermatologist prescribed an ointment. I know this "housewife ecema" is triggered by household chemicals/cleaning solutions so I have learned to avoid direct contact use.

This past week I noticed the palms of my hands began to develop dry, circular pockets of skin that would crack open and peel.
My hands are now extremely dry.  I am careful on my choice of hand cream to use but there is no relieve i  sight,
My hands do NOT itch, but feel so rough.  

I have been using 56,000 I.U. Vitamin E skin oil.  The dryness immediately disappears and I get some comfort.  However
the condition reappears after a few hours after the application; the skins starts to peel off.  The peeling is contained in both palms, not on my fingers.  What causes this peeling and what is the treatment?    I live in Texas weather has been unusually cold.             Myra007
