Dr. Ian Crozier underwent the fight of his life last fall after he contracted Ebola while treating patients in Sierra Leone.  Dr. Crozier thought he was done for Ebola for good, when it popped up in an unlikely place, his eye.  Through experimental treatments, his doctors were able to save his vision as well. 

Ten Years of Medicine - Dr. Annie Wishna attends her 10-year Medical School Reunion

This spring, Dr. Annie Wishna attended her ten-year medical school reunion at Washington University in St. Louis.   Dr. Wishna had the opportunity to not only catch up with old friends, but also to learn about some of the latest and most innovative breakthroughs in medicine.  For Dr. Wishna, a visit to St. Louis would not be complete with out a visit to Kaldi's Coffee for one of their chocolate chip cookies. 

Eye Changes During Pregnancy

Just like everything else in the body, the eyes often change during pregnancy.  Your glasses or contacts prescription can even shift and may not stabilize until six months after you are done breastfeeding!  These changes likely occur due to increased blood volume, fluid retention, and hormonal changes.  Don't worry, the change is usually minor.
