Ophthalmologists Dr. David I. Malitz, Dr. M. Alijajeh, and Dr. C. Mark Millsap team up with Doctor of Optometry Zach Rossman to clarify vision with Ohio Valley Eye Institute's range of cutting-edge eye-care services. Basic eye exams for children and adults test whether eyes need corrective lenses or LASIK. During cataract surgery, high-energy sound waves obliterate the cloudy intrusion into microscopic particles, and an intraocular lens usually eschews the need for stitches. The staff also brightens eye surroundings with cosmetic procedures such as blepharoplasty, which lifts drooping upper eyelids and tightens sagging lower lids, as well as Botox and laser resurfacing treatments. The ophthalmologists especially pride themselves on their surgical skills, having completely eliminated the need for glasses in many patients who have been told they weren't candidates for corrective procedures in the past.
The doctors sit down with each patient to review their selected procedure step by step in order to alleviate anxiety. Supportive friends or family members who stand by can amuse themselves by turning on the television or perusing a selection of magazines in the waiting area, or by peeking into their loved one's treatment room through a window to watch the surgical action.
Teeth are tiny and hide their imperfections quite well. That's why Evansville Family Dentistry deploys modern digital x-rays to paint a pixilated image of pearly whites in 256 shades. The office's digital radiograph is just one of several modern dentistry tools that Dr. Jeffrey Lowery uses in his hometown dental practice. The bulbs of Zoom! teeth-whitening units glow in the treatment rooms, and the team also crafts custom dental guards, which protect teeth at night or when you're auditing shepherds' tax returns.
The nationally certified professional dry cleaners at Don's Claytons have been removing mustard spots from neckties and mud stains from trousers since the Eisenhower administration.

With an interest in natural remedies, Dr. Edward Meiggs earned a doctorate in naturopathy and is a doctor of traditional Greek medicine, also serving as an alternative-medicine columnist for Examiner.com. Today, he uses his bedside manner and healing techniques at A.R.T. Health & Bodyworks, where he and his team treat clients with Manual Therapy. They specialize in therapeutic techniques such as reflexology and acupressure, both of which seek to release tension by manipulating pressure points and encouraging clients to stop giving piggyback rides to lazy shadows.

At River Bend Dental Group, board-certified dentists Dr. Donald Eblen and Dr. Thomas Salmon Jr. and their tooth techs strive to improve the shine and width of grins. Examiners scrutinize each tooth for signs of disease or unpatriotic sentiments, then thoroughly cleanse cuspid surfaces of plaque, tartar, and the enamel doodles of less professional dentists. A set of commemorative x-rays preserve toothsome images for dentists' and grandchildren's perusal, then are used to create custom trays. At home, patients can continue improving smiles with a combination of the trays and NiteWhite bleaching gel.
After Michelle Murphy sustained a volleyball injury in 2001, doctors told her she might never be able to squat or bend again without undergoing a complicated operation. Instead of heading to the hospital, she visited a yoga studio, where she learned how to stretch and strengthen her hurt knee with ancient therapeutic poses. Since then, she hasn't needed knee surgery, an achievement she credits to her yoga practice. To help others discover yoga's physical and emotional benefits, she took the reins of Evansville Yoga Center after moving back to Indiana from California.
At this studio, a team of registered and certified yoga instructors guide students toward wellness goals with compassion and patience. Suitable for all levels of skill and experience, classes emphasize yoga's power to promote strength, flexibility, focus, and inner peace. Classes often begin with sitting poses and deep breaths, then progress to standing and inverted poses. A relaxation exercise concludes each session, helping students feel as calm as an ocean after a Swedish massage. A power-yoga class caters to intermediate and advanced students with athletic poses that challenge the body and mind. Students seeking assistance with difficult poses or hard-to-tone body parts may schedule private yoga sessions, which brim with personal attention and encouragement.:m]]
