  • When we choose glasses, we should pay attention to the shape, color and size of the frame. As for those who with triangle faces, I hold the view that they should select a pair of rimless frame glasses with light colors and wider bottom. Because this kind of frame can minimize the width of the top of the face so that it can make the face look more attractive and gentle. And there is another important thing I must say that everyone looks best in his or her own color base, so when choosing the color of the frame, we should take the colors of skin, eyes and hair into account. Then go to the store to try on more glasses, and you may well find a pair of suitable glasses quickly according to theses principles.

  • I heard that the scar tissues can be removed by some kind of surgery. The surgeon can use some high tech equipment to clean out the debris and a lot of scar tissues during the surgery. But we must aware that there was no guarantee that the scar tissues would not grow back again. So you'd better consult your eye doctor for better ways or suggestions.

  • Yes, crying can cause subconjunvtival hemorrhage. When you cry too much, it will cause high blood pressure and leads to subconjunvtival hemorrhage. Or if when you cry and you rub your eyes roughly, it can easily break the small blood vessel in subconjunvitival and result in subconjunvtival hemorrhage. But you don't need to worry too much because subconjunctival hemorrhage can treat itself within two weeks. But if you feel your eye irritated or itchy, you should see a doctor.

  • Well, it seems that there is something wrong happened to you,really unlucky I think. Anyway, what I recommend to you is to flush your eyes with a lot of normal saline or clean water, and afterwards try to get some anti-biotic eye drops to prevent your eyes from getting an infection. Most importantly, do not even try to rub your eyes, that is critical and dangerous you know? If things are not very good, try to consult a doctor.

  • Pink eye is often spreaded by sharing basins or towels with other people. Hand contact directly can also make you get pink eye. So you can't get infected by eye contact.

  • If you have a small amount of astigmatism, you are recommended to wear a regular spherical GP lens or even a spherical soft lens. It is said that the reason why Spherical GP lenses can correct mild amounts of astigmatism is that they are made of firm plastic and do not conform to the asymmetric shape of the front surface of an astigmatic eye. Besides, you can choose a toric contact lens which is made from the same materials as regular contact lenses. However toric contact lens fitting typically is more expensive than a regular contact lens fitting. You would better to ask for doctor's professional advice.

  • The advent of the big nerd glasses compliments the fashion feelings. Besides, people have totally different understanding about the traditional eyeglasses. With the exclusive and hot fashion class, big nerd eyeglasses catch every fashion lover's eyes. Surely they will still be fashion in this year. If you wanna a nice fashion try about the nerd glasses with reasonably low prices, you can find some good online eyeglass store such as framedirect.com.

  • Cornea is the protective membrane covering on eyeball, which should be transparent and clear with full of nerve ends. Because it is full of nerve ends, it is extremely sensitive that if any dust or sand got into eyes or beneath eyelids would make you feel very uncomfortable. Corneal abrasion will cause pain, foreign body sensation, sensitivity to light, excessive tear and squinting. Normally mild abrasion can heal up without any treatment in about 3 days. As to serious case, it take longer to heal up. Because there is no blood vessels on cornea, so any wound on it heals very slow. If anything gets into eyes which caused corneal abrasion, don't rub your eyes but flushing eyes with water. To treat corneal abrasion, you can apply some antibiotics eye drops or ointment to prevent infection and lubricate eyes. Some medication might be prescribed to relieve pain. Don't wear contact lenses until you are completely healed up, because wearing contact lenses might make your abrasion worse. Wear sunglasses while going outside could help reduce the pain from strong light.

  • Dr William Feinbloom was the first Doctor to use a colored corneal section on his Scleral contact lenses in 1936. He also at that time invented bi-focal, Tri-focal and multifocal contact lenses. "Colored" contact lenses are not new. With the advent of plastics in the early 1930's contact lenses have been made in colors quite easily. Plastic corneal contact lenses were being introduced in 1948 and shortly after that they were available in a wide variety of colors and even "sun lenses" for outdoors. Colored contact lenses were not introduced by "Johnson and Johnson", and I believe this unknowing person is referring to colored "Soft-Contact lenses" which were introduced by CIBA ( A division of W/J contact lenses ) in 1984... I was a contact lens technician at one time, working for a well respected Doctor..
