Start Crunching Fruits to Improve your Eyesight

Posted on Oct 21, 2014 in Blog, Eye Health | 0 comments

Crunching CarrotsYour mother’s advice that carrots can help you see in the dark may have been more than a ploy to get you to eat vegetables.

It is true – eating carrots can help you see in the dark. The essential nutrient responsible is carotene, which is turned into vitamin A by the liver. Vitamin A protects the eyes by helping to absorb the light energy that passes into the eye. I Good sources of carotene are carrots, mangoes and cabbage. You can also find it in cod liver oil, milk and eggs.

Another fruit famed for its ability to boost night vision is blueberries. The ‘magic’ ingredient in blueberries is a group of compounds called anthocyanosides. These attach to the area of the retina that is responsible for adjusting the eye to see in the dark.

You will need to eat blueberries for more than two months before starting to notice any effects. If you are unable to source blueberries in your area, you can take them in capsule form or tablets, available from good health food stores. Aim to take up to 600mg every day.

Your eyesight is your most precious sense. Add the foods on this list into your weekly diet to keep your eyes beautiful, healthy, and well protected.

Do Astronauts Have to Wear Sunglasses in Space?

Posted on Oct 18, 2014 in Blog, Eye Education | 0 comments

Do Astronauts Have to Wear Sunglasses in SpaceThere’s a lot of news buzzing online regarding Mars One’s goal to establish a human settlement on Mars and if they should put the crew in deep sleep on the way. One question that comes to mind is whether astronauts will have to wear sunglasses while in space. Can they still be blinded by the sun and/or other stars?

 The answer is a very strong yes.  According to Quora, the sun can still be blindingly bright for space travellers. Their spacesuits are designed to adapt for extreme brightness. If you think of a space suit, you most likely picture the bubble-like piece that fits around the astronaut’s head. This headpiece is equipped with a primary transparent visor. If the sun gets too bright, the astronaut can pull down the outer visor much like putting on a pair of eyeglasses.

 Additionally, astronauts are not looking through the Earth’s atmosphere which adds an additional layer of protection. The additional visor is most definitely needed.

If you are considering joining the crew to Mars, remember to bring your sunglasses as you’ll definitely need them! Here are a few interesting facts regarding this topic:

  1. The outer visor of the spacesuit is covered in a thin layer of 24 carat gold.
  2. It’s a natural human reflex to look away from the sun.
  3. Eight low-risk cargo missions will travel to Mars before they send the crew.
  4. If the Mars crew survives, a new group of people will arrive on the planet every two years to form a small village.
  5. Living on Mars is commonly compared to living in Antarctica. It’s tough to do, but possible.
  6. It will take approximately seven months to travel to Mars. This is a little bit longer than astronauts currently stay at the International Space Station.
  7. Mars has two moons and takes 1.88 Earth years to travel around the sun.
  8. Mars was first recorded by Egyptian astronomers in the 2nd millennium BC.
  9. You could leap nearly three times higher on Mars than you could on Earth because their gravity is only 37% of the Earth’s.
  10. As of August 2013, only 16 missions to Mars have been successful (they have tried 39 times).

 So there you have it, Astronauts do need to wear sunglasses while in space. With all this talk about setting up a colony on Mars, we have to ask, would you do it?

 Don’t forgot, 20/20 Eyeglass Superstore sells thousands of frames and sunglasses. We have a frame for every face and a price for any budget. We also have Independent Doctors of Optometry at each location. No appointment is needed, just come down 15 minutes earlier than your desired appointment time to fill out the required paperwork. We look forward to seeing you!

The-Worst-Foods-for-Your-EyesWe can all think of foods that are good for our eyes. But there are probably more unhealthy foods than you realize lurking in your refrigerator or freezer right this second.

Our eyes are vascular, so it is important to have a heart-healthy diet to keep blood vessels healthy.

It´s important to get the necessary healthy saturated fats that our bodies need and these can be found in fish, lean meats, fresh fruits and vegetables, and low- or non-fat dairy products.

You should be make eye health a priority. For more details related to the worst foods for your eyes, click here.
