We simply love sharing laser eye surgery success stories with you, so here's another:
Pre-operation visual acuity -0.2 (or 20/12.5).
Post-operation visual acuity: 1.0 (or 20/200 vision)
Both Mark and our eye doctors agree - that's success!
Question: How is vision tested in early childhood?
Answer: An ophthalmologist will conduct a complete eye examination, which includes dilating the pupils so as to relax the focusing muscles for an accurate measurement. You child's eye doctor will use a retinoscope to arrive at an accurate prescription, and then advise parents whether glasses may be needed, or if monitoring the condition is advised.
While myopia (shortsightedness) is not a preventable condition, being proactive about managing your child’s eyesight can prevent it from deteriorating further.

HOW DO I AVOID GETTING COSMETICS ON MY CONTACT LENSES?
Always wash your hands well before touching your contacts to avoid getting any oils or lotions in your eyes. It is important to put your contact lenses in before applying makeup. Even so, some powdery eye shadows will inevitably get into your eyes, so try using a cream-based eye shadow instead – preferably water-based. Finally, never apply eyeliner on the area of your eye between your lashes and your eyeball.

FAQ: HOW CAN I TELL IF MY CONTACT LENS IS INSIDE-OUT?
ANSWER: The difference can be subtle, but before placing a contact lens on your eye, make sure it looks like half a ball, not a soup bowl with a rim. The trick is to place the lens on your finger so that a cup is formed. Then hold the lens up directly in front of your eyes so you’re looking at the side of the cup. If the lens forms a “U” with the top edges flared out, it’s inside out. If it forms just a “U,” it’s in the correct position.
