Is It Time For You To Get New Back-Up Eyeglasses? | Poughkeepsie, NY

If you've thought about them recently (which isn't likely), you might remember the case they're in. You may even know where it's located. The truth is, most of us don't pay too much attention to our backup ocular aids. Why would we? After all, our normal contact lenses or eyeglasses work just fine...that is, until they don't. When you lose a contact or have your glasses break, you will wish your only means of  seeing wasn't the pair of glasses you last wore in high school.

The next time you visit an eye doctor to adjust your contacts prescription, you may wish to order a pair of glasses with the same prescription in case of a dental emergency.

Another option would be to try laser correction surgery, permanently improving your vision by using lasers to reshape your cornea. Laser correction techniques like LASIK or PRK are helpful because they can eliminate or greatly reduce the need for glasses.

You may be a candidate for LASIK if you have:

  • Vision problems
  • Sufficiently thick and healthy corneas
  • A glasses/contacts prescription that has remained the same for a few years
  • No history of dry eye syndrome

If you are considering LASIK, you'll find no better option than the eye doctors at Seeta Eye Care Centers.
