  • Certain kinds of eye drops can make people poop, but I do not think that you can use eye drops as laxative. When a kind of eye drops are taken by someone as laxative, he will poop more, but at the same time, the ingredients in the eye drops can also cause great damage to body such as diarrhea and even dehydration. Some chemicals in the eye drops are very poisonous. Some people even use eye drops to commit murder. Besides, according to the instruction, eye drops are drugs for external use and cannot be taken through mouth. As the name suggests, it can only be applied to eye problem. If you have constipation, you should buy laxative in the nearby pharmacy.

  • The side effects might be blurry vision for distance or reading, glare and halos at night, poor vision when driving at night, reduced depth perception, and an uncomfortable feeling. However, these side effects tend to decrease gradually as you adapt to your new vision.

  • Well, you should know that Kate Spade is an American brand which used to make quality purses and shoes for women. However, in recent years they began to produce sunglasses which are also fashion products. Generally speaking a pair of their sunglasses will cost you about 200 or 300 dollars, should not be too pricey. You can easily find them over large shopping centers or Walmart and Ebay.

  • Toric lenses are used to correct astigmatism. Accoding to what Wikipedia said, the toric lens has different optical power and focal length in two orientations perpendicular to each other. One lens surface is shaped like a cup from a torus, while the other one is spherical. You can find toric lenses in glasses contacts or intraocular lenses. If you still can't understand what it is, you can have a look at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toric_lens. Hope you can have a good understanding of the toric lens.

  • What is the most important thing, in my opinion, it is to know what peripheral vision loss is. It is the loss of your ability to see things to the side or up and down from your central vision. To some extent, it is called tunnel vision. There are a variety of reasons that can lead to peripheral vision loss. Firstly, the most common reason that leads to peripheral vision loss is optic nerve damage from glaucoma because it blocks normal blood flow to the eye's internal structures. Secondly, Retinal detachment will also cause peripheral vision loss. If retina detaches, it is lifted or pulled from its normal position peripheral vision loss may result. Thirdly, stroke can lead to peripheral vision loss. To be honest, there is no good way to cure peripheral vision loss. There is a type of lens known as a prism sometimes can be added to your eyeglasses prescription to expand your field of view.

  • My father bought a pair of over the counter glasses last year. He said that the glasses can help correct his vision problem. And he refused to have his eyesight checked again and buy a pair of prescription glasses. Because he seldom uses reading glasses so I said nothing and let him do what he wanted. But I won't suggest you to buy a pair of over the counter glasses. Though the price is much cheaper when compared with a pair of prescription glasses in the physical stores, the prescription glasses sold online is much cheaper than that in physical shops. And over the counter glasses have poorer quality when compared with prescription glasses sold online. So why not choose a pair of prescription glasses online?

  • I am sorry for that. As we know, the cornea is a layer of transparent thin in front of the eye which is often exposed to the air. The damage on the transparent thin layer, sand hole, the stabbed corneal, bacteria, viruses can all give rise to infection and produce corneal ulcer. In addition, the allergy may also cause corneal ulcer. It is bad for people with corneal ulcer. A corneal ulcer can cause redness, pain and foreign feelings, or even lead to blindness. Thus it's better for you to treat it as soon as possible for the sake of your eyes. If your corneal ulcer is not very serious, there are some suggestions for you to take good care of your eyes at home, such as do not wear contact lenses, touch or rub your eyes with your fingers. Besides, using cool compresses or tea bags to relieve the symptom, washing your hands often to avoid worse infection. However, if those tips above do not work, you'd better go to see an ophthalmologist, and take a professional treatment.

  • your eyes water because your ear, nose and throat are connected and when you get a cold your frontal sinuses(which are located in the middle of your forehead just above your eyes) are put under pressure, your eyes watering are caused by the irration and pressure from your frontal sinuses and your nose. One way might be to take an antihistamine medication. Several are available over the counter.

  • There are many people wearing the pinhole glasses which will be good at the function. They can improve your vision to some degree. However, they may not be appropriate for everyone here. Your dizzy feeling may be caused by the shrink peripheral vision. There are some potential side effects. As we know, when you wear the pinhole glasses, you may reduce the amount of light that the eye receives. At the same time, the pinhole glasses will restrict the visual field. Thus the restricted visual field would be bad for some activities. The activities may conclude driving. In diving, you need your peripheral vision to have a general look. In addition, the reduced light makes objects appear dimmer in the vision. You may feel it hard to see with them clearly at night. At the same time, the young people should better not wear the pinhole glasses because of the stimulated vision.

  • Being pregnant has many signs such as morning vomit, tired eyes and so on. It is quite possible for you to have tired eyes when you are pregnant. We all know that some women are under great pressure during pregnant period and they will suffer changes in hormones, metabolism, fluid retention, and blood circulation, thus will make them feel sleepy and tired eyes, besides, these changes will further affect vision. Some women may also suffer many other eye problems such as eye twitching, blurry vision or even black spots in eyes. All these symptoms are common and temporary and will recover several months later. Therefore, if you suffer tired eyes and other vision changes during pregnancy, you don't have to change new prescription glasses because your vision and tired eyes will recover after you give birth to your baby.

  • You mean the heat in the outside deform your contacts. How does that happen? Wow, it's unbelievable. But...mmm, maybe it could happen. Er, I strongly suggest you to buy a pair of prescription sunglasses because prescription sunglasses can correct your vision problems as well as block harmful UV rays for your eyes. Plus, buy those sunglasses that can block 100% UV rays for you. They are good sunglasses. But maybe it will be a little inconvenient if you want to use sunglasses at home because the light is darker than that in the outside. And the tinted lenses will darker the environment so that you may find it difficult to see things clearly in the house. So you may need to buy a pair of prescription glasses too. Hope this helped!
