What is a Clinical Breast Exam (CBE)?
A clinical breast exam (CBE) is similar to a BSE, except it is performed by your health care provider. If you have questions about how to perform a BSE, your health care provider can discuss and demonstrate the proper technique during your CBE.

What is Astigmatism? How is Astigmatism corrected?
Astigmatism is a refractive error usually associated with an irregularly shaped cornea. A spherical cornea creates a single focal point while an astigmatic, irregularly shaped cornea creates more than one point of focus. As a result the image that is formed on the retina of the eye is blurred. Glasses, contact lenses and refractive surgery may all be used to correct Astigmatism.
What are the different types of hearing loss?
Conductive hearing loss occurs from loss of sound sensitivity resulting from abnormalities of the middle and/or outer ear. This type of loss is common in children with ear infections; once the infection has cleared up, the hearing is usually restored. Sensorineural hearing loss results from abnormalities in the inner ear and/or nerve paths to the brain. The auditory cells and nerve are permanently damaged. This is the type of hearing loss often referred to as “nerve deafness.” Mixed hearing losses are those that have symptoms of both conductive and sensorineural hearing losses.
