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.

Your Safety is Our Focus

Seeta Eye is open for business. Both our Poughkeepsie and Fishkill offices are now able to resume the routine services, including annual eye exams, our patients rely on. However, in the time of COVID-19, these visits will be slightly different than what you may be used to.

We are taking every precaution to ensure our staff and our patients remain safe. In order to do this, we have implemented new protocols and increased safety measures designed to prevent community spread of the virus.

Eyecare for Millennials

As the first wave of millennials prepares to enter their 40s, it is important to begin thinking about eye care. Even if you do not have a preexisting refractive error, presbyopia will soon become an unavoidable reality. Common issues such as dry eyes or computer vision syndrome may also become more pronounced with age, and the steps you take now to address these issues can help prevent more serious vision problems later in life.

Coronavirus and Eye Safety

COVID-19 Eye care infographicNew York State is under a Stay at Home order. Please stay at home. Leaving, for any reason, endangers you and everyone in your community. We can beat this, but we have to work together.

COVID-19, the novel Coronavirus, spreads from person-to-person through spit and mucus. The most common entry points for the virus are the nose and mouth, where particulates containing the virus can easily be inhaled.

Safe Toys & Gifts Month

In the holiday classic, A Christmas Story, all Ralphie Parker wants is a Red Ryder carbine-action, 200-shot BB rifle with a compass in the stock. No matter who he asks, however, the answer is always the same: “You’ll shoot your eye out.” Even from Santa.

The Poughkeepsie office of Seeta Eye Centers at 23 Davis Avenue will be closed the week of November 18th as we make the final preparations to open our new location, just across the parking lot from our current space.

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.

Are VR Headsets Safe for Eyes?

Virtual reality (VR) headsets are relatively new. As such, the long-term impacts of routine use of VR headsets is not clearly established. There is some evidence that doing near work – on tablets, phones, and similar devices – may contribute to myopia, even in adults. This may suggest that using a VR headset frequently would increase risks for nearsightedness, but there is no established link.

Tips for Healthy Eyes in 2019

The care you take of your eyes today will impact how clearly you will be able to see as you age. Small steps taken now can make a substantial difference when it comes to the health of the eyes. For example, even slight changes in diet can have a profound impact, helping to reduce risks for a host of vision-stealing disorders while offering a number of other health benefits.
