Preventing Glasses from Fogging When Wearing a Mask

In light of COVID-19, the CDC recommends wearing a simple cloth facemask whenever it is impossible to maintain a six-foot distance from people who do not live in your house while in public. Depending on where you live, this recommendation may actually be a requirement prior to entering a business or establishment. It is absolutely the requirement at Seeta Eye Center – both for patients and staff.

Can I Afford LASIK?

The cost of LASIK can range between $1,000 and $3,000 per eye depending on the technology and technique being employed. The vision correction achieved through LASIK is permanent and most people are able to achieve visual acuity of 20/20 or better. This means that, by and large, people who undergo LASIK are able to avoid many of the costs associated with prescription eyewear for the rest of their lives.

The Four Stages of Visual Growth

Newborns, while possessed with the full visual capacity to see objects and colors, can only see 8-15 inches away. Over time, distance vision improves, as does the development of color vision, allowing babies with healthy vision to see the world with more clarity right around four months. However, vision development does not stop at this point. In fact, it continues throughout our lives.

Choosing a LASIK Surgeon in Poughkeepsie

LASIK is a fairly routine procedure. In fact, an average of 800,000 LASIK eye surgeries are performed in the United States every year, and conservative estimates suggest as many as 43 million additional men and women who have not yet undergone laser eye surgery would be good LASIK candidates. However, "routine" does not imply "failsafe" and your choice of LASIK surgeon will play a direct role in your comfort, your safety, and your long-term satisfaction.
