August 2017 Mandel Vision Highlights
In this month’s Mandel Vision Newsletter ~ In Focus ~ we discuss Children’s Eye Safety Month, safety tips for viewing the upcoming solar eclipse and we answer a few LASIK FAQ’s.
August is Children’s Eye Safety Month
If your kids are heading back to school this month, be sure to read our blog: How to Help Prevent the Spread of Eye Infections. Pink eye (AKA: conjunctivitis) is very common in children and spreads quickly in classrooms.
This Month’s Featured Eye Health Tip
During a solar eclipse, the sun can burn a hole in your retina in seconds. So, if you’re planning to view the solar eclipse on August 21st, you need to plan ahead to do it safely.
The fear of eye movement during LASIK surgery is a common concern among our patients here at Mandel Vision. The good news is, as with all things LASIK-related, we have you covered! Dr. Mandel will walk you through the procedure to let you know what’s happening and to be sure that you know what to do and where to look throughout the process. In addition, our state-of-the-art technology incorporates safeguards which ensure that eye movement isn’t an issue during the procedure.
