Lose the Selfie Glare

Can you snap a selfie anytime, anywhere…without having to reposition your head to lose the “selfie glare?” If you wear glasses to correct your nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism, you have probably had to re-take your selfies several times to actually see your eyes behind the lenses. Glare from glasses in photos can take the focus from your beautiful/handsome face and can ruin your photos.

    • Keep Your Eyes Safe in the Kitchen
      At Atwal Eye Care, we have helped thousands of people achieve lens-free vision through laser vision correction. And while our LASIK in Buffalo allows most of our patients to toss out their glasses, we encourage those patients to protect their new-found clear vision by wearing protective safety glasses when performing certain activities.
    • KaChoo! Is it a Cold or the Flu?
      You know the feeling. It starts with a slight tickle in your throat, or the feeling that something “isn’t quite right.” Then…boom! You’re sick. But how do you know if you have a common cold or the full-blown flu? The flu typically comes on fast, while a cold can start slowly and gradually become worse. The symptoms of each condition are different, too.
    • LASIK & Dry Eye
      Dry eye can be a fairly common side effect of LASIK vision correction due to the potential for reduced sensitivity of the corneal nerves, leading to a reduction in tear production. Tears are necessary to lubricate and protect the eyes and if there is not adequate tear production, the eyes can become irritated.

    • Halloween without Glasses
      Unless you want to dress up as Clark Kent, Austin Powers, Harry Potter or a hippie chick, there aren’t too many Halloween costumes that feature glasses. But if you… • Are nearsighted, farsighted or have astigmatism… • Can’t wear contact lenses… • And actually want to see your friends at a Halloween party…
    • Serious Eye Conditions Growing in Young People
      According to Medical News Today, a recent survey of optometrists has shown that the number of young people being diagnosed with serious eye conditions such as dry eye and blepharitis (inflammation of the eyelids) is growing. Many of these doctors were also concerned that certain sight-stealing vision conditions may be developing at a younger age:
