SPOTLIGHT ON CATARACT SURGERY
A cataract occurs when the natural lens in your eye becomes cloudy. Normally, light passes through the cornea. Cataract surgery is typically done on an outpatient basis and usually takes less than 15 minutes. Generally, topical anesthesia (numbing eyedrops) are used with gentle, light IV sedation. Phacoemulsification or phaco is the newer, more common form of cataract surgery in which specially designed instruments are used to emulsify the cataract with ultrasound waves.

Indigo Healing Acupuncture
LIFE-CHANGING SOLUTIONS AT INDIGO HEALING ACUPUNCTURE IN DRIPPING SPRINGS
Indigo Healing Acupuncture has attracted widespread attention for innovative treatments that consistently deliver longterm pain relief without undesirable side effects. Awarded the 2019 Dripping Springs Star Award for Outstanding Customer Service, residents of the Austin Hill Country have embraced the clinic for the high-quality medical care it offers to patients who have tried everything else to relieve chronic pain. BACK PAIN AFFECTS EVERY ASPECT OF LIFE
Did you know 8% of all adults experience persistent or chronic back pain? Coping with intense back pain day and night can take a heavy toll on daily life. How do you feel when you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t carry groceries, walk your dog, or bend down to hug your child? Emotions can spiral out-of-control with frustration, depression, or anxiety as life passes you by.
To manage chronic back pain, modern medicine typically promotes over-the-counter painkillers, muscle relaxers, chiropractic care, physical therapy, prescription drugs, and invasive surgery. In some cases, aggressive approaches to pain management bring about side-effects that can make you feel worse than the original back pain itself. Up to 40% of patients have

treatment strategies naturally encourage your body to reduce inflammation, improve circulation, and relieve pain. The most common side effect of treatments is deeper, more restful sleep. During an initial consultation, Dr. Michelle Wendt, L.Ac., DACM meets one-on-one with prospective patients to listen to their story and understand them as a whole person, not just a constellation of symptoms. Every patient receives a customized treatment plan to effectively and efficiently achieve their unique goals. Using an individually tailored mix of acupuncture, ATP Resonance BioTherapyâ&#x201E;˘ and Chinese herbal medicine, Indigo Healing Acupuncture delivers clinically impressive results that help give chronic pain sufferers the freedom to get out of bed and actively participate in a fulfilling life.

Non-Profit Spotlight: Cystic Fibrosis Foundation— Great Strides Walk Meet HOUSE TULLY: A CURE IS COMING, a team of family and friends taking GREAT STRIDES to find a cure for cystic fibrosis (CF). TELL US ABOUT CYSTIC FIBROSIS. WHAT IS IT AND HOW DOES IT IMPACT THOSE LIVING WITH THE DISEASE?
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a progressive, genetic disease that limits the ability to breathe over time. An excess of mucus in the body causes persistent lung infections, malabsorption, liver disease, diabetes, and infertility. CF patients must do 1-3 hours of breathing treatments every day along with numerous medications to slow disease progression and extend life. WHY DID HOUSE TULLY GET INVOLVED WITH THE LOCAL GREAT STRIDES WALK?
When Frankie Tully was diagnosed with CF at birth, her mom Jaclyn registered HOUSE TULLY for the local Great Strides Walk and joined thousands of teams across the country in raising money to fund research for a cure. Huge progress has been made, but many lives are still cut too short. We will continue to walk and fundraise until CF stands for Cure Found! WHAT IMPACT HAS THE CYSTIC FIBROSIS FOUNDATION HAD ON PATIENTS LIKE FRANKIE?
When the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation was established, people born with the disease weren't expected to live to attend elementary school. Today, because of the Foundation’s efforts, the average life expectancy is in the 40s. Additionally, the Foundation advocates to help advance research and drug development, improve access to care, and raise awareness about the disease. Recently, HOUSE TULLY was thrilled to have Frankie’s aunt, Jennifer Tully participate in March on the Hill as a leader in the Foundation’s national advocacy efforts.
HOW CAN SOMEONE GET INVOLVED LOCALLY?
Visit the CFF Central Texas website to see upcoming events and learn more about local opportunities to volunteer, advocate, and/or walk alongside HOUSE TULLY on May 16: https://www.cff.org/CentralTexas/
22 You can also consider making a donation to support ongoing research towards finding a cure for Frankie and others like her: http://fightcf.cff.org/goto/housetully

Lakes. Down in Hoover’s Valley, enjoy a view of the surrounding hills while visiting
Wedding Oak Winery’s Texas roots run deep. We’re proud to bring you Texas wines of distinction suitable for both celebrations and every-day drinking. Wine is about the shared pleasures of life — slowing down long enough to appreciate the blessings of the land while enjoying local food and wine with friends, family and community. Our three Tasting Rooms are conveniently located throughout the Hill Country in San Saba, Fredericksburg, and most recently, Burnet. Come on in. Slow down and sip for a while.
Our beautiful estate property is nestled within Hoover’s Valley, in the Texas Hill Country AVA. We chose this location because of its unique soil composition, decomposed granite gravel. Our terroir allows us to grow and produce wines of great character and extremely high quality. At Perissos, we live by a “farming first” mentality. We invite you to visit and take in the breathtaking views of our 16-acre Estate Vineyard, and the rolling hills that surround us.
After making the leisurely half-mile drive along a granite gravel road to the Winery building, choose from a number of seating options for tasting great Texas wines with an even greater Texas view. As native Texans, we are committed to making wines from only Texas grown fruit. We invite you to relax and enjoy the variety of Torr Na Lochs wines poured at your table by our friendly staff. We look forward to sharing our vision and dream of a Truly Texas Wine Experience with you!
