Presbyopia occurs when your eyes gradually lose the ability to focus clearly on objects that are close to you, usually in those over the age of 40. Even if you have never had vision problems, you can still develop presbyopia. That’s because it is a normal part of the aging process. It happens when the lens gradually thickens and loses its flexibility. Just like the rest of your body, as you get older the eyes naturally undergo several changes, and it can become difficult to see things clearly up close or read without eye strain. Age-related farsightedness (presbyopia) at some point, affects everyone. Unfortunately, it is an inevitable part of aging. It cannot be prevented, but it is treatable.
Myopia or nearsightedness is one of the most common causes of impaired vision. In fact, by 2050 research suggests that nearly half the people on this planet will be myopic. People who have nearsightedness can see close-up objects clearly while distant objects appear blurry. That means that while you may not struggle to read a book or look at a menu, you may struggle to see things farther away like a road sign on the highway. Nearsightedness can affect both adults and children. It is often discovered in children when they are between the ages of 8 and 12. But, myopia can also occur in adults. Typical symptoms of undiagnosed myopia include difficulty seeing things in the distance, as well as squinting.
Hyperopia is the medical term for farsightedness. It refers to a vision condition in which things at a distance are easier to see than things up close. Hyperopia occurs when light entering the eye is focused behind the retina instead of directly on it. Although hyperopia is a common vision problem, people experience farsightedness differently. For some, there are no noticeable problems with their vision and for others vision can be blurred at any distance near or far.
A disposable contact lens is a lens that is worn for a recommended amount of time and then discarded. Disposable contact lenses have a shorter lifespan, but require less care than traditional ones. While there are different types of disposable contact lenses, the daily disposable contact lens is the healthiest choice available.
Considering contact lenses? Contacts are great for those who do not want to wear glasses. For those visually required to wear prescription glasses, contacts can be used in lieu of wearing them. Contact lenses are small prescription lenses, worn in contact with the eye.
Uniqueness is not about hair color, or even clothing but more about a way you feel. Your eyeglasses are not just a tool to help you see better, but also an addition to what makes you unique. They help you perceive others, and how others perceive you. If you find yourself in need of a pair of glasses, think about what is important to you.
No matter what lifestyle you live, eyewear allows you to be dashing or daring, stylish or classic. If sexy, striking, and bold is what you are after; eyewear gives you the freedom to be who you want to be. Want to be a rebel or a rock star? You know you can rock that look! No matter what type of look you are after, eyewear can help shape how you are perceived.
If your eyes are the windows to your soul, then your eyewear is the window to your style. In the world of being perceived the way you want to be perceived, eyewear has the potential of illuminating desirable features, and downplaying the less then desirable ones. By choosing the right eyeglass frames, you are creating balance and symmetry in just the right places. Just as a frame should be chosen to compliment a beautiful piece of art, your eyeglasses if selected right, will compliment the face and frame it just right.
Eyewear should make a statement about who you are. Whether you are geeky, style-conscious, classy or sophisticated your glasses should be a fashion statement. Eyeglasses not only help you improve your vision they can also be used to make a statement about YOU. Use strong bold frames to draw attention to your eyes, or wear a thin understated frame to emphasize.
