  • Well, first, I have to say that it is dangerous to wear old contact lenses. And also, it will just hurt your eyes. According to some experts, old contact lenses can contain a lot of virus, and bacteria. And in that way, it will just cause some eye problems. For example, it is possible to cause styes when you wear old contact lenses, for wearing old contact lenses may make your eyes infected. And then, it is easy for your eyes to have styes. Also, watery eyes, pain, tenderness, itching, or redness can be possible too. So in my opinion, you are not supposed to wear old contact lenses.

  • Diabetes indeed has some effects on eyes. Yet we can't tell whether you got diabetes or not based on twitching. Because there are many causes for twitching, for example, fatigue, stress, alcohol, dry eyes, caffeine, eye strain, allergies and nutrition imbalance. You could think carefully if causes fit you. And as to diabetes, there are some obvious signs, for example, you might lose weight seriously and quickly in a sudden, urination frequency increase, extreme hunger soon after eating, and you feel easy to get tired. Diabetes might affect eyes, causing condition named diabetes retinopathy. It is complication which could lead to blindness. Based on the introduction above, I think it is hard to say whether you got diabetes or not. Your eye twitching might be caused by fatigue or something. You don't have to worry too much. But if you develop any symptoms of diabetes, I suggest you to go to hospital at your earliest. Taking proper and timely treatment is very important. Wish you get better soon.

  • According to different sports, there are many choices of athletic glasses. Sports like bicycle motocross, jogging, skiing, golf, and camping are taking place in a way close to the limit of human body, and the eyes are the most sensitive tissues. So extra protection is needed even if we don't have refractive errors. But for sports lovers just like you, who has some kind of eye disorders, nowadays there are also prescription lenses with specific equipment, which can meet different needs. So there are two points you should consider and which are also what the doctor will ask you. Firstly, you will be asked to take a refraction exam, then in which circumstances you will be wearing it, because in most of the day you're wearing glasses. That is to say athletic glasses are specially designed for sports, and don't need to be wore in daily lives. So use them sparingly and do routine maintenance.

  • Walgreen's or Walmart can provide you with various kinds of reading glasses. You just need to take a simple test before choosing the glasses. Some people may think that the best brand can always provide people with good products. However, sometimes other brands can give you a pair of satisfying glasses. Nowadays, many people choose to place an order online for the same products sold online will be cheaper than that sold in the physical shops. You can have a look first. https://www.firmoo.com/reading-glasses.html

  • When working out, you should wear the special sports spectacles, some people called it safty goggles. The lens should be PC lenses, which is light with good capacity of resistance. The mounting should be made of titanium alloy and the frame should be a bit thick to fasten firmly. Do not wear spectacles without frames, whose screw is liable to loosen. Once an incident occurs, they cannot protect your eyes and may hurt your eyes easily such as tearing your cornea, rubbing your eyelid, retinal detachment or hemorrhage.

  • Milk allergy symptoms are different from person to person. So, it is hard to say if milk allergy cause itchy eyes. Some people occur a few minutes after drinking milk, but some people may occur a few hours. Commonly, most of people with milk allergy may suffer hives, wheezing and vomiting etc. Still there some people may also suffer runny nose, watery eyes coughing or itchy skin etc.

  • Eyes are one of the most weak and important place for individuals, so essential protections must be taken. As far as I concerned, it is dangerous to use the same eyeliner. Most people have some basic eye problems even they are unaware of it, such as sensitive to light and hot wind, be afraid of light, eyes are easy to increase tears and feel uncomfortable for something foreign matters. All these may symptoms for some eye diseases, for instance, eye irritation, photophobia. And if your friend who wanna share eyeliner with you suffer conjunctivitis(pink eyes) and red eyes, you'd better refuse her/him with a proper excuse. That's because these types of eye problems are most possible to be infected by Vitus and germs, especially there exists wounds in your eyes. However, it also may be safe. Not all people can get infection when share eyeliner. Just be careful and you should take responsible for your health.

  • I am nearsighted and have prescription eyeglasses and contact lenses. Usually i prefer to wear prescription eyeglasses, but sometimes i also wear contact lenses for some occasion. When i buy contact lenses, the sellers suggest me clean and change the solution everyday. If not possible i need clean and change them at most 3 day a time. So, i think, the contacts can be in solution at most 3 days.

  • Well, generally speaking, it will just take about three days for your eyes to recover from sensitivity to light. And according to some experts, it is normal to have sensitivity to light. And in some degree, it can be the photophobia too. So just be careful about it. by the way, you should know that this symptom can be caused by many factors, including eye infection. So after the surgery, just try some ways to protect your eyes from some irritants. You can just wear eye patch to achieve it.
