Choosing Eyeglasses That Suit Your Personality and Lifestyle

Posted on Jul 15, 2014 in Blog, Fashion | 0 comments

Choosing Eyeglasses That Suit Your Personality and LifestyleEyeglasses can help people see the real you, or they can help create the image you want. The key is to find the right eyeglass frames to match your personality and lifestyle.

People generally recognize you by your face, so the eyeglasses you choose to wear are a very real part of your identity. Whether you want to appear sophisticated, fun-loving, youthful, conservative or style-conscious, the right eyewear can help you shape how you are perceived. And if you choose to wear only one pair of eyeglasses for everything you do, that says something about you, too!

We all like convenience. But the truth is, there are many aspects to your life and personality. And to complement your multi-dimensional lifestyle, you need more than one pair of eyeglasses.

New eyeglasses are a great way to update your look without buying a whole new wardrobe.

5 Reasons Why Women Should Be Concerned About Eye Health

Posted on Jun 27, 2014 in Blog, Eye Health | 0 comments

Eye healthDid you know that women have better peripheral vision then men? This trait can be traced back to when women gathered food for their families and had to be aware of their environment.

There are many interesting additional differences between men and women’s eyes. Following that subject, we’d like to share five reasons why women should be concerned about their eye health:

1. Dry Eyes

Dry eyes are a common side effect of menopause due to the decrease of estrogen. Additionally, a variety of medications can cause dry eyes. Dry eyes can be treated very easily by using eye drops and/or artificial tears.

Eye Health: Floaters in your eyes

Posted on Jun 26, 2014 in Curated article, Eye Education, Eye Health | 0 comments

Eye HealthAre you constantly swatting at imaginary bugs or gnats? Do you notice cobweb-like images or specks moving around in your vision? Do you have a “snow globe effect” in your vision?

Your eye is filled with a clear, egg white-like substance called vitreous. It is made up of about 99 percent water and 1 percent collagen and hyaluronic acid. The vitreous gel has many functions. It helps the eye to maintain its round shape, helps to refract light, and serves as a shock absorber for the retina.

Normally, the back part of vitreous pushes against the retina. The vitreous, like any other part of your body, ages and changes over time.

Sometimes the vitreous can pull away from the retina all at once, causing a sudden onset of floaters and other symptoms, like flashes.

If you experience a sudden onset of many floaters, flashes, and/or a curtain, cloud or veil in your vision, you should call your eye doctor immediately. Drop in at 20/20 Eyeglass Superstore; we are always ready to help you. We also have Independent Optometrists located on site who will be happy to examine your vision. Walk-in’s are welcome, and we ask that you come 15 minutes prior to your desired appointment time.

Eye Trouble with Google Glass?

Posted on Jun 18, 2014 in Eye Health | 0 comments

google glassHere is some interesting talk going on about possible problems with Google Glass according to an article written by Darren Allan.

There have been a number of reports of problems on Twitter, and Beta  Beat detailing their own experiences of two writers who had sharp pains after ten minutes of Glass usage – pains that disappeared after taking the device off.

The latest controversy surrounding Google Glass is the fact that the device is reportedly causing eye strain and headaches.

The problem is that Glass is designed for very quick usage – short glances at pieces of info; bursts of activity. It’s not designed to be gawked at continuously.

New research presented this week at the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology conference in Orlando, Florida suggests that regular grape consumption may play a role in eye health by protecting the retina from deterioration. Specifically, a grape-enriched diet resulted in a protective effect on retinal structure and function.

The retina is the part of the eye that contains the cells that respond to light, known as photoreceptors. There are two types of photoreceptors: rods and cones. Retinal degenerative diseases affect over 5 million people in the U.S., and can cause blindness due to photoreceptor cell death.

The study was conducted by a research team and investigated whether a diet supplemented with grapes could protect the photoreceptors in mice with retinal degeneration. The results showed that retinal function was significantly protected in the mice consuming the grape-enriched diet.

“The grape-enriched diet provided substantial protection of retinal function which is very exciting,” said Dr. Abigail Hackam, lead investigator of the study. You can read more here.
