  • An ingredient in Viagra could cause blindness in both men with eye problems and those with seemingly normal vision. Sildenafil, the active ingredient in the erectile dysfunction medication, could permanently damage the vision of a man with a hereditary eye condition, but also those who have normal sight and carry one gene linked to the eye problem.

  • Yes, milk thistle is very good for the health of eyes. It is really true that it can be used to treat your yellow eyes which are mainly caused by the liver problems. Milk Thistle has the scientific name of Silybum marianum in Europe. The Milk Thistle has been used as the liver disease treatment for one thousand years in the history. The Milk Thistle can activate the regeneration of liver protein, restore damaged by alcohol and virus activity of liver cells, still can remove free radicals maintain liver cell membrane permeability and reduce toxin on the liver damage, protecting chronic alcohol liver injury and suffering from acute or chronic hepatitis, fatty liver and toxic liver damage in the liver cirrhosis. It can adjust the content of cholesterol in the blood, prevent cholesterol deposition in vessel wall caused by hardening of the arteries and so on. It has the role of maintenance in good liver. Hyperlipidemia could improve the symptom such as high blood pressure also. It has great role for the health of eyes. If you have yellow eyes because of the liver problem, you could use this one to treat it.

  • I only heard that some people use old frames to store new lenses. I think this is easier than find a new glass frame to store your old lenses. But you can have a try. Take your old lenses to see an optician immediately. If they give you a new glass frame that can't store your lenses perfectly, I suggest you to buy a pair of new glasses. I saw one of my friends wear a pair of glasses with a pair of smaller lenses. They look so ugly.

  • Well, it seems that there are something wrong with your eyes, as a matter of fact, chalazion is a kind of disease in relation to your eyes, especially the area around your eye lip. Once get it, you will be prohibited from wearing contact lenses because this could cause great damage to your eyes. On general, you need to take some chalazion surgery and immediate medical care before things get worse. Maybe you can wear eyeglasses for visual aids.

  • It is likely that you will have some dry eye symptoms. However, headache is not a common symptom after lasik surgery. They can happen in those that are already given to headaches due to the adjustments the brain is making to your new eyes and the dryness that is a normal part of the healing process. If the headaches last longer than a couple of weeks, then it could be that you are slightly far sighted which would make your eye work harder to see. An eye exam would give your eye doctor a chance to determine if you are far sighted and if an enhancement would be helpful.

  • Usually, the people who above 18 years old would accept lasik eye surgery to cure myopia. That is just because for the people above 18 years, their eyes vision are fixed, they are mature to accept the surgery. The young people's eyes are flexible and still on the develop process. Their vision prescription is also flexible. If you are too young, after the surgery and the prescription getting strong, the surgery will be in vain. So were you please more patient and wait until 18 years old, them go to hospital for the surgery?

  • There are a number of factors to consider when choosing the most appealing glasses for your face. Style, shape, size, color, and material are just a few. The easiest way to narrow down the glasses features that will complement your face the most is by face shape.
    Heart-shaped faces typically resemble the heart shape in that the widest part of the face is at the top and the narrowest part at the bottom. People with heart-shaped faces have jawlines that taper to a defined chin.
    When choosing glasses for heart-shaped faces, the goal should be to minimize the width of the top of the face and to broaden the chin. Heart faces should avoid frames that could exaggerate the width of the forehead or the narrowness of the chin.
    Round faces are just what they sound like: Circular, full, and without strong lines and angles.
    When choosing glasses for round faces, the goal should be to add contrast to the face's natural curves and to avoid frames that could exaggerate the roundness of the face. By adding contrast, you can make a round face appear thinner and longer.

    A good rule of thumb for people with round faces is to choose glasses that are wider than they are tall, as wider frames give the illusion of a slimmer face. Also, round faces should not be afraid to try glasses adorned with prints, bright colors, strong brow detailing, and other embellishments, which all add contrast and definition to the face. Finally, glasses with a clear bridge can make your eyes appear wider while adjustable nosepads can prevent frames from resting on fuller cheeks.
    Square faces typically have strong jawlines and facial features defined by distinct angles.
    When choosing glasses for square-shaped faces, the goal should be to lengthen and soften the face's natural angularity and to avoid frames that could exaggerate the sharpness of facial features. By adding curving lines, you can make a square face appear thinner and softer.

    Rounded and upswept frames will add curves to the face while drawing attention away from the squareness of the jaw. A good rule of thumb for people with square faces is to choose glasses that are wider than they are deep (i.e. tall), as wider frames give the illusion of a slimmer face. Another trick square faces can try is to select glasses in neutral colors (cream, beige, etc.), which help soften the angles the face. Finally, oversized frames, like Jackie-O exaggerated rounds, help to distract from the harshness of a square jawline.
    Oval faces are thought to have the most balanced proportions and, thus, the ideal shape. People with oval faces should consider themselves lucky, as they will look good in almost any pair of glasses.
    When choosing glasses for oval faces, the goal should be to maintain the face's natural balance. Oval faces should avoid frames that could throw off their ideal facial proportions.

    Frames that are as wide or slightly wider than the broadest part of the face will help maintain oval's natural balance. Glasses with detailed embellishments also look great with the high cheek bones typically found on oval faces.

  • Babies should have their first comprehensive eye exam at 6 months of age to assess whether their eyes are developing normally. Children then should have additional eye tests at age 3-year-old to ensure proper eyesight and find the early sign of vision problem such as lazy eyes.

  • It is about 4 to 5 days to get the eyeglasses. But i am not often buy prescription eyeglasses their. i prefer to buy prescription eyeglasses from some eyeglasses shops such as firmoo.com, framesdirect.com etc. they are also very affordable. Anyway, buying eyeglasses online are more cheaper than they were in local eyeglasses shop.

  • This is easy. Just follow this 4-step guide.

    1. Stop poisoning yourself by chocolate, refined sugar, coffee, alcohol or smoking. These are the most common causes of dark under eye circles.
    2. Start eating 400-600 gramms of vegetables every day. Make sure they're seasonal and vary them often. You'll get every vitamin your body requires.
    3. Start working out. No explanation needed.
    4. Start meditating, it will improve the quality of your sleep. More and better sleep = less ugly under-eye circles & happier and healthier you.

    Good luck!

    Hint: multivitamins and dietary supplements don't work.
