Situated right behind the retina, macula is responsible for the visual range. As a result, older individuals suffering from age-related macular degeneration will get a sharp loss in central vision.

However, central vision is quite critical for daily activities such as watching TV, reading books and newspapers, crafting and so on.

Many people suffering central vision loss use various types of magnifiers during these activities. Moreover, different tasks require suitable kinds of magnifiers. For instance, hand held magnifiers suit activities such as sewing and knitting. And telescopic glasses can be used for long distance vision, such as watching movies and theatre and driving.

Many people with vision problems are expecting a laser eye surgery to provide them with increased freedom. Removing eyeglasses or contact lenses is quite significant to certain groups of people. In order to get the best possible visual results, it is quite important for laser eye surgery recipients to follow good aftercare steps.

It is a common sense that a fast and proper recovery is essential to achieve satisfactory surgical results. There are a lot of precautions proposed for patients after laser eye surgery. And a fundamental criterion is to follow instructions from the surgeon.

Medications prescribed by the surgeon should be strictly followed. These medications can be critical in preventing postoperative eye infections. Proper intake of medications is a decisive part of surgery aftercare.

Protection of the post-surgery fragile eyes is overwhelmingly necessary. There are potential irritants during the day or night, which should be prevented from entering the eyes. Eye irritation can considerably affect the healing process of the eye. Sunglasses or patches are helpful in shielding the eyes from scraping and other injuries.

Dust and wind are believed to be harmful to laser eye surgery patients. What’s more, it is also necessary for those patients to drink lots of water in order maintain hydrated. Scratching and touching the eyes during the healing period are also needed to be avoided. Some activities can particularly stain the postoperative eyes, including swimming, going to hot tubs as well as driving. These small steps are also an indispensable part of aftercare.

Proper and complete rest after the surgery is very important. Enough rest can not only ensure a fast and effective recovery, but also help the patient reduce the risk of getting injured. Furthermore, women patients are required to avoid make-ups during the healing period because these substances may cause irritation.

Patients of laser eye surgery should always exactly follow the advice and precautions after the surgery. They are essential to ensure visual benefits from laser eye surgery.

·Laser Eye Procedures You Should Know

Except for visual benefits and technological improvements of laser eye surgery, there are still certain risks and complications of the surgery. Patients who are considering a laser eye surgery should be very clear of both the surgical options and potential risks through making a thorough discussion with the surgeon. Some problems are widely reported on corrective laser eye surgery.

In most cases, laser eye surgery can create clear vision and remove the need of eyeglasses or contact lenses. However, the surgery can not ensure a 100% success rate that there are still certain vision correction issues. It is hard to predict the level of effectiveness of a specific surgery. In very rare cases, some people report a worsened vision or little effect from the surgery. And some patients can still not get rid of corrective lenses.

Corneal haze is another side effect that occurs during the healing process of PRK or LASIK procedure. Corneal haze can cause a fuzzy and affect the vision. Fortunately, this condition is usually not serious and will go away on its own. No permanent visual effect will be left. However, there are also rare cases that corneal haze does not resolve itself, which requires further laser treatment.

Eye infections are also rare in laser eye surgery. Common consequences of an eye infection include discomfort and delayed healing process. Modern technologies can actually control the infection rate at a quite low level.

Halo effect is also one of the potential complications of LASIK or PRK procedure. It is widely known that halo effects usually occur in low light and dark conditions. Those LASIK recipients who suffer halo effect always have difficulty in night driving. Actually this effect is caused by the pupil enlarging.

Flap complications are only possible in LASIK recipients, because only LASIK cut a corneal flap during the surgery. Potential flap complications include damage to the flap and complete loss of the flap, which are caused by flap detachment or tearing.

Some patients also report that the visual effects of laser eye surgery gradually regress over time. In this case, a second surgery is needed.

Vision correction has greatly contributed to the human civilization. And contact lenses and eyeglasses have long been the most common methods of vision correction. Although many people claim that modern contact lenses win hands down, some other individuals would like to advocate benefits of eyeglasses. There is actually no common sense in this comparison.

Eyeglasses with a single prescription usually offer a wider range of vision correction and additional safety, while contact lenses in modern times are easy to wear and more convenient. The selection of contact lenses over eyeglasses or vice versa indeed involves many factors, including age, eye prescription, work and entertainment environments, peer pressure and finance.

Single focus contact lenses provide wider corrective view than multifocal lenses. For most young adults with a sole vision problem, single contact lenses are the most common. But many old folks need vision correction at more than one distance. In general, multifocal contact lenses are widely used now to correct presbyopia. However, cylindrical correction by contact lenses for astigmatic patients involves more risks that the lenses may move off of the cornea or rotate.

Multifocal contact lenses are usually thicker than single vision contacts and more expensive. Yet another solution to multi-correction is monovision contact lenses. Presbyopic patients can wear a “near” contact lens in one eye and a “far” lens in the other eye. This new form of vision correction can seriously degrade the wearer’s vision at some distances. Actually, the selection of contact lenses in single, multifocal or monovision type mainly depends on the wearer’s vision needs.

Unlike eyeglass lenses, contact lenses are beyond the technology of polarization. But other extra benefits such as anti-glare and UV protection are available from contact lenses. A shortcoming of contacts is that they can not offer adequate protection against bright light and UV rays, because they only cover the cornea.

As the federal law Fairness To Contact Lens Consumer went into effect in 2004, prices of contacts are now much lower because patients can buy contact from any sources they want.

As people age, various changes in the body including the eyes will take place. Eyesight decline is quite common in old individuals and vision loss is also potential. Some old folks can not see small or far away things clearly, while some others are unable to perceive near objects. These are common vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Fortunately, modern science has made various ways of vision correction available.

Vision correction has undergone a long way of approximately 100 years. Scientists have developed several ways to correction vision problems affecting a large group in the world. Three methods are most widely used, namely eyeglasses, contact lenses and laser eye surgery.

Eyeglasses actually have two functions. Of course, the first one is vision correction, which is the initial concept in eyeglass inventors. But in fact, corrective eyeglasses do not really correct one’s vision. These devices only offer a compromise by altering the light reaching the eyes. Another function of eyeglasses as external devices is offering special look for a wearer. Eyeglass wearers can get a slightly or considerably different look. Eyeglasses for vision correction or appearance change are convenient. They are easy to insert and remove and very little care is required.

A second option for vision correction is contact lenses, which fit directly over the eyes. Contact lenses perform vision correction based on the same principle as eyeglasses. They only refocus the light entering the eyes as well. In most cases, contact lenses do not change the wearer’s natural appearance. Unlike eyeglasses, contact lenses require frequent lens care, such as sterilization, cleaning, disinfecting and so on. In general, contact lenses are more costly than eyeglasses, because they need more frequent replacement.

The third solution to refractive errors is laser eye surgery that comes in various types including the most popular one LASIK. Laser eye surgery aims to correct vision problems permanently. In any way, laser eye surgery carries certain risks, although at a very low level. Laser eye surgeries are more expensive than eyeglasses and contact lenses. But their incomparable visual benefits have attracted a large number of patients.

Nowadays, there are many designer eyeglasses that combine both the needs of vision correction and sheer fashion. This is helpful for those with vision problems but also do not want to give up fashion. These designer brands are effectively catering the millions of eyeglass wearers.

With the improvement of the eyeglass technology, those thick black frames have gone forever. There is a wide range of designer eye wear in the showrooms now. Customers always have numerous options to decide on color, shape as well as style. Following are some tips in choosing prescription eyeglasses.

The foremost thing for an eyeglass wearer is to have a comprehensive eye exam and choose a new frame with the advice from the doctor. Eyeglass frames can be made of titanium, aluminum, plastic and so on. Plastic frames are usually durable, lightweight and less expensive. Although a little more expensive, frames made from titanium are also durable and light weighted.

Before choosing a new pair of eyeglasses, it is also necessary to check out the policies of vision benefits provided by the insurance company. The wearer should check how much the insurance plan will cover. Those details such as what things are covered and what are not covered should all be clear.

The lens type also needs careful evaluation. Some people think that smaller lenses are better because they are lighter. This is a general conception in the industry. Actually, different lens materials have different features. For instance, plastic lenses are undoubtedly lighter, while much care is needed. In contrast, glass lenses are scratch resistant but they are much heavier. Customers should also take into consideration both the good and dissatisfying sides of a lens type.

While a doctor or an optician can help choose a frame that complies with a patient’s face shape, it is necessary for the patient to take a companion, who can help in choosing a frame that suits the patient’s personality.

In the United States, customers can require their prescription from the eye doctor after their eyes are examined. For the right frame type, they can go to larger shops or online eyeglass stores.
