As from as I know, the darker the background is, the less harm your eyes will receive, it is a principle that I learned from my life experience. Just try not to get white or red background, which could make your eyes fatigue within less time. You should also try to take some breaks at intervals to better protect your eyes and vision. More vitamins are also effective.
Most eyeglass wearers are nearsighted, which requires corrective lenses that are thin in the center but thicker at the edge of the lens. The stronger the prescription, the thicker the edges (see lens drawings below).
Most of today's fashionable frames are made of plastic or metal with rims thinner than the lens itself. Also, popular rimless mountings mean that the edges of the lenses are completely exposed. In either case, the lens edges are highly visible, and thicker edges can detract from the appearance of your eyewear.
High-index eyeglass lenses are the right choice if you want thinner, lighter lenses and eyeglasses that are as attractive and comfortable as possible.
Thinner, lighter high-index lenses are especially recommended if you have a strong eyeglass prescription for nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism.
I think there are several side effects. The first one is that the permanent eyeliner on our eyes is very difficult to remove, especially compared with the normal eyeliner. Then, you have to buy some cleansing oil that are particularly strong enough to remove the eyeliner, while refreshing as well. At last, you should be careful when you're removing the eyeliner, for you may hurt the fragile skin around our eyes.
I kindly suggest you to take it to an optician if you can not punch out it just by yourself. Or it is easy to be broken.
Before you have lasik surgery, the surgeon will check your eyes to see whether you are qualified for lasik surgery. Generally speaking, if you have some conditions that are not allowed for lasik surgery, you are not a good candidate for lasik surgery. For example, if you are under 18 years old and your vision is unstabled, you are not suitable for lasik surgery. People whose corneas are abnormal or scarred, they cannot have lasik surgery. people who have eye infections, such as dry eye, eye inflammation are not qualified for lasik surgery.
In February 1993, I began blinking excessively and uncontrollably. As it became worse, I went
to a number of eye doctors. They all agreed that my vision was not impaired and thought the
problem was dry eye and prescribed drops. They did not help. The others thought the cause
was nerves, but it was not that either.
My Blepharospasm Symptoms Intensify
When I coached my sons' basketball games, I not only would miss half of the games caused by
the blinking; I would wear a baseball cap and sunglasses to hide my eyes.
When at a restaurant, my sons, sitting opposite me, would turn away to avoid looking at my
eyes twitching. They joked about it, not realizing the discomfort and embarrassment I felt. My
wife had to do the weekend driving since I could not. The eye twitching always seemed to
intensify when I was in a moving vehicle. It did not matter if I was driving or someone else. My
90 mile daily round trip to work became a nightmare. Thankfully, I was able to avoid having any
Two Years and Not a Solution
Two years later, I was quite concerned and upset. By this time my quality of life had become
worse. Being a corporate controller, I felt my future and family%u2019s financial security were
In June, 1995, I found a local doctor who diagnosed my symptoms as a rare neurological
disorder called Blepharospasm. It is the result of %u201Cfaulty%u201D brain signals sent to the optic
muscles, forcing them to contract, hence the twitching. With the cause being unknown, there
was no hope of relief. (I would later find relief by accident). It is not life-threatening but
could be debilitating. In the worst cases, the sufferer would be considered legally blind even
though their vision may be 20-20.
Injecting Botox Resulted in Some Relief
A neurologist told me that the preferred treatment was injecting small doses of Botox
(Botulinum toxin) into the eyelids. This would later become popular to get rid of wrinkles. My
wife became very concerned when we learned from the neurologist that it was Botulinum that
would be injected into my eyelids. I said, %u201CI came for relief so let's do it.%u201D I was never fond of
injections, but relief was my first priority.
The Botox took several days to be effective and did provide some relief. However, the affect on
my smile was strange and it made my eyes look artificial. It cost about $400 and lasted only
six weeks, although most people experienced relief for six months. After my second treatment, I
began to question the future affect. I went for a second opinion and when I could not
be assured of its safety, I decided to stop.
A Healthy Solution Seemed Hopeful
Several weeks later, I learned of a powerful, natural and organic whole food supplement. It's a
one of a kind whole food that is loaded with nutrition. I decided to try it.
When I would back out of my driveway to go to work, the spasms would begin. They would not
stop until the car was parked. Six weeks after taking this natural health food, my wife made me
realize that I had not had any spasms all week. I said, "Could it be that the Blepharospasm is
caused from a nutritional deficiency?"
The Quest to Prove That I Had Found an Alternative Solution That Really Worked
I spent the next twelve years trying to convince the medical community that I had discovered
something remarkable. No one would listen. During this time I did introduce the food to sixteen
individuals with Blepharospasm and seven told me it helped them.
Sometime later I was offered a double-blind study at the Wilmer Eye Opthomological Institute of
the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland. I was overwhelmed and
flattered. Six years later the results of the study, where I was mentioned twice, was published.
The article appeared in The Journal of Ophthalmology, July, 2004 Issue Volume 138; Issue
1 pages 18 %u2013 32.
It was stated to me that %u201CThe food is safe and I expect it to help many more people. I would
recommend it for all who wish to try it for several months.%u201D
The results noted that the food was safe, helped some, with no side effects.
Helping Other Blepharospasm Sufferers Get Relief
People are still suffering and happily I am still near symptom-free. Perhaps now is the time I
will be heard.
In the summer of 2005 I received an honor from the Dystonia Foundation being recognized
with a 2005 Courage Award. It was received for inspiring people with my vitality. Dystonia is the
name of movement disorders with Blepharospasm being one of six.
I believe now is the time to resurrect what I thought was my calling %u2013 to give relief to sufferers.
Since the Internet has become mainstream, it became clear the sufferers would be better
served by reaching out to them instead of the medical community.
There are two factors to accomplish better health. They are cleansing and nutrition. Cleansing
is necessary to free the body of toxins and other harmful chemicals. Nutrition will nourish the
body to strengthen it and provide improved functioning.
I am very proud of the fact that during the last several years I have helped nearly 40
sufferers and the list keeps growing weekly. I am also happy about the fact that I have
now reached 26 countries and 49 states.

The main reason pupils dilate is to assist with vision in dark areas. Since you are lacking of sleep, your body must experience some extent disorder, which will make your pupils dilate. Because the nervous system controls the muscles of the irises, the response of the nervous system to different stimuli results in involuntary pupil dilation. Another commonly cited reason the pupils dilate is in response to excitement. When a person is so tired, he or she is easily to get dilated pupils.
Now some nea ways to help you chose ideal eyeglasses. The first thing you must do is to determine your face sizein the minoor. Broadly, face and frame size should be in scale, in agreement. That is, a large face should a large pair of glasses, while small face needs small glasses. Next, determine which frame colors to consider because you may hot or warm. round glasses make your eyes much longer and thinner. So wide, square frames, low bridge, and depth from top to bottom make your face appear more balanced and shorter. Plus, cat shape lenses are suitable for narrow forehead with wider cheeks and chin.
Personally, i prefer to choose Specsavers because they provide both eye test and prescription eyeglasses. One of my friend have bout a pair at Specsavers. And their eyeglasses are looks nice and in good quality. Besides, it is not expensive of sunglasses there. And i have get an eye test at vision express for eyeglasses. I don't know why i got headache when i first wear it. So, i guess, maybe specsavers are better than vision express.
I think it is possible and it is very common. Dust mites are very normal creature in human accomodation. They are very small that human eye can't see them. They like eating dead skin of pets and humans. They are existing many places which might collect dusts. The mits, the excretion, secretion and even the decomposer of the mites are allergens, which can cause allergic reaction. So it is quite possible and common to have puffy eyes from dust mites. Wash your eyes immediately with water. Reducing your exposure to the dust mites could help clear your sysmptoms very soon. And you can note that dust mites can't survive in very cold and dry places. You can reduce dust mites in your room by knowing their living habits.
