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.

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.
PRK and LASIK are both types of laser vision correction that can be used to address refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. Both of these procedures utilize an excimer laser to sculpt underlying corneal tissue and improve vision. Both provide lasting and reliable results. Neither, however, is ideal for every patient.
LASIK is an incredibly effective treatment for the permanent correction of refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. It may also be an effective way to treat night vision issues including low vision along with issues like glare, halos, and starbursts around lights.
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.

Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) is a refractive error correction surgery that was approved by the FDA three years before its main alternative, LASIK. Like LASIK, PRK is used to correct refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Unlike LASIK, there is no corneal flap creation with PRK, making it a better option for people with thin corneas.
