Of course not ,the RX of contacts is different from that of glasses as they are worn directly on your eyes.Also the doctor need to check if you are the right candidate for contacts,so it is necessary that getting an eye exam before wearing contacts.
The eye is well protected from infection by the conjunctiva and the corneal epithelium. In addition, the tear film contains antimicrobials while the tear flow itself tends to wash away pathogens. The eye also harbors a host of non-pathogenic bacteria that competitively prohibit new bacteria growth. However, these eye-defenses can be breached by trauma, improper tearing, or contact lens wear and lead to an infection. An eye infection not only threatens vision, but the orbit can act as an entry portal to the rest of the body and infections can progress to systemic involvement, meningitis, and even death.
Yes, night blindness can be caused by myopia, glaucoma medications, cataracts, diabetes etc. So it is possible. Glaucoma is a disease of the major nerve of vision called the optic nerve. Normally it is caused by the pressure in the eye. So if patients ignore glaucoma, it may cause permanent damage of the optic nerve and finally lead to blindness. There are two main different types of glaucoma. And symptoms are also different. For open-angle glaucoma nearly have no symptoms. On the opposite, closed-angle may feel eye pain, headache nausea and vomiting and visual blurring.
That's true. Expensive eyeglasses are good in quality and comfort to wear. So expensive eyeglasses often last longer than cheap eyeglasses. However, some online optical stores do have cheap eyeglasses with high quality. The eyeglasses can also be made of high-end material, such as titanium or stainless steel which are more durable that they are hard to get broken. So eyeglasses made of titanium or stainless steel will last longer. But they are a little expensive than other eyeglasses.
RX in eyeglasses means that you can put prescription lenses to the glasses frames. People who have vision problems, such as myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and presbyopia, need prescription glasses to help correct their vision so that they can see things clearly. Eyeglasses which are marked with RX-able can be made into prescription eyeglasses. If you are choosing prescription eyeglasses, these glasses are available for you.
Your eye doctor also may use an autorefractor or aberrometer to automatically determine your prescription. With both devices, a chin rest stabilizes your head while you typically look at a pinpoint of light or other image. An autorefractor, like a manual refraction, determines the lens power required to accurately focus light on your retina. Autorefractors are especially useful in certain cases such as evaluating young children who may not sit still, pay attention or interact with the eye doctor adequately for an accurate manual refraction.Studies have shown that modern autorefractors are very accurate. They also save time. The autorefraction takes only a few seconds, and the results obtained from the automated test greatly reduce the time required for your eye doctor to perform a manual refraction and determine your eyeglass prescription. An aberrometer uses advanced wavefront technology to detect even obscure vision errors based on the way light travels through your eye. Aberrometers primarily are used for custom or wavefront LASIK vision correction procedures, but many eye doctors are now incorporating this advanced technology into their routine eye exams as well.
Usually, we can avoid the allergens to get rid of allergy. As to the swollen eyes caused by allergens, we can apply cucumber treatment to relieve the symptoms. You can put a bar of cucumber into a refrigerator for about half an hour and then take it out to cut it into thin pieces. Then put the cucumber slices on your eyes for 15 minutes. You can also use tea bags to relieve your swollen eyes.
Maybe you get your hyperopia or farsightedness recently. You'd better go to see your doctor and have your eyes checked.
It is not normal. And the papercut may hurt your eyes by hurting the corneal which is so weak. You'd better get it out of the eyes with the fingers. Then you'd better use the warm compress to make the eyes feel comfortable. In addition, you could also use some eye drops to eliminate the bacterium in the papercuts.
Yes, it's normal for someone has one eyelid lower than the other ones. So I think you should not worry about it. It's relatively common and not usually associated with anything else, but with the body structure. Because there is no two leaves which are perfectly same with each other. There are still no same eyelids. But if your case is serious, you may go and see a doctor. So that he can give you a exam and make sure your eyes are ok.
