  • It is true that watching too much television is bad for your eyes. Most experts agree that staring at the television will cause temporary or permanent damage to a person's eyes. As focusing your eyes too long on any one thing can cause eyestrain, a temporarily irritating problem, high eye pressure, dry eye, etc. Besides, color televisions, due to a factory error, emitting excessive X-rays. overexposure to x-rays, the excessive levels of radiation are especially harmful for children and elder people if they long time focus on TV. Because with their heads tilted up, the posture may cause more eyestrain, high eye pressure, near sight and dry eyes. Therefore, you should not watch more than an absolute maximum of 3 hours of TV per day, and don't let TV isolate you from your friends by sitting down in front of the TV and eating too much junk food without moving,which is also bad for your health and may cause overweight. In all, watching too much TV is bad for both eyes and health, so manage your TV time well, and take more exercises.

  • I am 82 years old nd contemplating cataract surgery. I was told per the evaluation just performed, I have some astigmatism. I visit the present eye Dr regularly with the chart eye test and several dialated exams. I was never told I had any astigmatism problem. I used to wear contacts but my vision improved over time and I did not require any lenses over the last 12 years or so. Now my recent preop tests say I have astigmatism. Do I actually need the more expensive IOL to correct astigmatism. ?? After all these years did I suddenly get astigmatism??? What's going on here besides $$$$$.

  • Yes, it is possible. About 10% patients happen to have this complication after eye surgery, which is the main cause of failure to the surgery. It is the scarring tissue happened to the central area of retina, named macula, which is full of nerve cells and we can see images through it. Macula usually lies flat against inside the back surface of the eye. So far it seems that clear reason for macular pucker is unknown. Sometimes cells grow inside eyes or an injury or condition might leave scaring tissue on macula which contracting or pulling macula. This pulling or contracting makes macula wrinkled, which is so called macular pucker. Possible causes for macular pucker include vitreous detachment, increased aging, eye surgery, retinal detachment, uveitis, diabetic retinopathy and eye injury. Up to now I didn't find any way to prevent it. Normally ophthalmologist will provide no treatment when macular pucker doesn't impact the vision; instead he/she will suggest the patient to take more frequent eye exam than normal to make sure the situation is under control. When it becomes severe, the doctor might suggest the patient to have a surgery to fix it.

  • I just had CATARACT SURGERY on my right eye October 20, 2016. ALMOST EVERY LAST ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION IS WRONG. 1) YOU CAN SHOWER OR BATH AFTER SURGERY, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS KEEP THE EYE THAT WAS OPERATED ON COVERED WITH A DRY FACE CLOTH AND KEEP YOUR HEAD TIPPED BACK SO THAT THE PERSON WASHING YOUR HAIR CAN KEEP FROM SPLASHING THE EYE. 2) NO FLYING, HOT TUBS ECT FOR TWO WEEKS AFTER THE OPERATION. 3) YOU DON'T NEED TO WEAR PROTECTIVE EYE WEAR WHILE YOU SLEEP. THIS IS OVER KILL ! 4) HAVING SURGERY IN THE WINTER CAN BE INEVITABLE, AS THE SURGERIES ARE DONE YEAR ROUND. TAKE THE APPOINTMENT THAT IS GIVEN TO YOU WHEN THEY CALL. IF YOU DON'T, IT COULD BE ANOTHER THREE TO SIX MONTHS BEFORE YOU RECEIVE ANOTHER APPOINTMENT. WITH THAT SAID, THINGS GET WORSE AS IT PROGRESSES EVEN MORE. ALSO, KEEP IN MIND, THERE ARE LOTS OF PEOPLE ON THAT LIST, AND THE WAIT COULD BE LONGER. IF YOU WAIT YOU MAY ALL OF A SUDDEN START HAVING HEADACHES. ALSO, KEEP IN MIND, THERE ARE LOTS OF PEOPLE ON THAT LIST WHO WILL GLADLY JUMP AHEAD OF YOU IN LINE. 5) YES YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL WITH ANY SURGERY. SOME TAKE AS LONG AS A YEAR TO RECOVER. IT IS SAID THREE MONTHS FOR RECOVERY, HOWEVER, EVERY PERSON IS DIFFERENT. SOME DON'T FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS, RESULTING IN INFECTION, INEVITABILITY CAUSING THEIR OWN DELAY IN RECOVERY. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS OF YOUR DOCTOR AND YOU WON'T HAVE A PROBLEM. 6) IF YOUR HAVING BOTH EYES DONE ( RARELY DO THEY DO BOTH AT THE SAME TIME UNLESS OF COURSE IT'S AN EMERGENCY ), THE NEXT EYE WILL BE DONE TWO WEEKS LATER, AT WHICH TIME YOU FOLLOW THE SAME INSTRUCTIONS AS WAS GIVEN ON THE FIRST EYE SURGERY, UNLESS THE INSTRUCTIONS HAVE CHANGED. THE SURGERY IS FROM TEN TO FIFTEEN MINUTES LONG. IF YOU WOULD LIKE, THEY OFFER A SEDATIVE, WHICH IS GIVEN INTRAVENOUSLY. IT DOES NOT PUT YOU TO SLEEP, IT JUST TAKES THE EDGE OFF THEN UNKNOWN. USUALLY, WHEN IT COMES TO THE SECOND EYE, 99.9% WON'T WANT OR NEED THE SEDATIVE, HOWEVER, IT IS THERE IF YOU DECIDE YOU NEED OR WANT IT.

  • Yes...I get hit on more when I wear my glasses ,Glasses can be VERY hot.

  • Sure. Polarized bifocal sunglasses are very helpful for driving becasue you don't have to switch back and forth between sunglasses and reading glasses. Polarized bifocal sunglasses can not only allow you to see close-up clearly, but also they can help reduce the glare when you are driving.

  • Yes, I am afraid it will. Optic neuritis tends to refer to inflammation of the optic nerve, which connects the eye to the brain. Once the nerve damages, we will be blind. The major symptom of optic neuritis is vision loss, varying from a small area of blurring to complete blindness within one or two days. In addition, those who suffer optic neuritis may also notice vision clarity reduction; vision color distorted (loss of contrasts) and sees less vivid vision than normal. The frequent eye movement, high temperatures and the intensive exercise worse the situation leading to vision loss. Vision loss is usually temporary if you have timely rescue, otherwise it may be permanent in some cases. Well, the disease can not be detected in its early stage due to our unawareness of subtle visual loss (optic neuritis can just affect only one eye), unless our doctor asks us to close or cover another healthy eye.

  • In the first place, you should avoid putting it in your bag randomly, for it may be scratched. The sunglass should be put in its own case with a piece of cloth around it. Then, you should attach great importance to its cleaning. You can choose some certain kind of cleaner that suits your sunglass and clean it once a week. At last, you’d better be more careful when using it. Try not to break them carelessly or touch the lens with your fingers.

  • Wearing swim goggles is a safer way for you to see clearly both above the surface and underwater. If water gets in your eyes when swimming, you should remove, clean and disinfect your contact lenses as soon as possible to reduce your risk of eye irritation and infection
