Two nutrients play very crucial for the health of macula. One is zeaxanthin and the other is lutein. We can see that there are some pigments in our macula. It has been found that the main ingredients of these pigments are zexanthin and lutein.

Investigators have found that rod cells are abundant with lutein, and the cone cells with zexanthin. And the cone cells are critical for central vision.

The tinted part of macula, viz. the pigments, is mainly composed of zexanthin and lutein. The pigments can filter out any harmful rays coming into the eyes.

As we grow old, we are prone to a disease-Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD), for the color of these eye pigments become lighter and lighter. In most cases, AMD can lead to very serious eye problems, or even permanent blindness.

In this sense, these pigments are crucial for the health of our macula and can help maintain our vision. This is because, the ingredients of these pigments-zexanthin and lutein- are very powerful antioxidants that can slow down the process of macular degeneration.

The two nutrients are so important that most of us begin to find some methods to get them. Of which, supplements are good choices. In some cases, the two ingredients are combined in the same supplement. The two nutrients are Carotenoids and can be gained from marigold flowers.

It is true that there are some zexanthin in lutein supplements, for this is good for our macula. Of course, we can also buy any refined single nutrient.

Some investigations have revealed that zeaxanthin can be found in some foods, among which gojis berries is very typical and extraordinary. Goji berries can not be easily got, but it is available at some Chinese herbal stores.

Of course, zexanthin can also be found in other foods, especially in some leafy vegetables.

God gives us a pair of bright eyes, and we use them to see the whole world. But when you don’t protect them well, you can be myopia or hyperopia. Only when coming to this situation, you will realize that how important to use eyes properly. But it’s always too late to regret because your eyes are seriously damaged. Therefore, forming a good habit is very significant. In fact, in your life you can relax the eyes all the time like when you are driving or riding.

The nature is so beautiful and exquisite that you nearly don’t have enough time to admire it. You may say you don’t have enough time to travel around to enjoy the beauty of nature. But actually beautiful scenery is everywhere, in your way home or to office.

On subway, train or bus station, most of people are busy catching up with time. Some are going to be late for work. Some are going to somewhere to deal with unknown troubles. Others are walking with quick footsteps with worried feelings. Researches show that stress is main cause of eye problems. With a lot of pressure, their eyesight can’t be improved even a little.

How can we avoid joining in them? The best way for us to do is to look at the things around peacefully or to close the eyes for a rest.

Though the time you are sitting on the bus may be quite boring, you can still make good use of it effectively. Sit straight with your head without shaking, and focus on an object. Then shift your eyes from one thing to another, then to the next. Quick movement of things makes an animation effect. It not only improves your eyesight but also please your mind. Besides, you can also imagine you are passing by a fence or doing something like running. This keeps your mind and eyes working all the time and it will benefit to your eye view. What’s more, the scenes outside the windows are fantastic, too. A passing house or an advertising billboard must catch your eyes. You only need to look at it with a quick glance. And you can remember them the next time. In this case, you eyes are wonderfully trained.

Driving is a tiring work. After a long way drive, you may have a pain in back or neck, a headache and blurred eyesight. So people who have experienced a long drive must feel sick and consider it a nightmare. Nevertheless, the situation can be improved if you pay more attention to other things instead of the purpose you go for. Make sure you are in your proper sitting position. Change it after a long drive. Shift your attention from the instrument board to some objects more far away. Blink your eyes every other time so as to relieve your stress. During the route, you can glance at trees or houses or other things coming up to you instead of staring at the road ahead all the time. So your eye muscles can’t be tired. After driving for about two hours, stop and have a rest.

If you do these exercises as a habit, your eye view can’t be worse.

As the most important organ of people’s body, eyes need to be taken good care of. But some people may not pay close attention to the eyes’ health until the eyesight problem is found in serious state. Just like visiting the dentist, we should also need to visit our eye doctor or do some eye tests at a regular time. In this way, eye problems can be found in time and the treatment for the eye problem will be more effectively. So why should we take the eye test regularly?

In the UK, free eye tests are supplied to the people who are qualified for the requirements raised by the National Health Service (NHS).  Even if someone is not entitled for the free eye test, this test is still worth doing as it will have a good impact on people’s eye health and finding out eye problems in time. And in Scotland, eye test is free for all the people supplied by NHS, so everyone should have eye tests regularly, without any excuse.

The following will illustrate several points that people can be entitled for free eye tests if they are qualified for. In England, at the age of 16, children can enjoy this free eye tests. If they are still in full time education, the entitled age can be extended to 18 years old. And for people aged 60 or more than 60, they are elbowed with the right to enjoy this free eye test. That is because for old people, their vision has been deteriorating quickly. Any eye problem found in time will be a great benefit for his later life.

Free eye tests can also be supplied if you are on certain benefits. Not only you, but also your parents can have this right. For people who are suffering diabetes or glaucoma, they are surely qualified for the requirements of free eye test. Even if you are immediately related to someone who has glaucoma- the child, brother or sister, after you get the age of 40, you can have the eye tests for free. In addition, people and their parents can have free eye test if they have and exemption certificate (HC2)

The policy is so considerable that if eye doctor let you have a pair of glasses, you can also consult in the free eye test to prove if you need it or not. When you need to change for a complex pair of contact lenses, you are entitled for free eye test to test if the contacts are suitable for your eye problem, or if your eye condition is getting deteriorating in order to avoid more damages brought by the new contact lenses.

As we know, astigmatism is one of the most common eye problems in the world. This kind of eye disease is only found in adults, but also in children. Scientists and eye doctors have never given up their efforts to find the better way to treat astigmatism. It is proved Conductive Keratoplasty (CK) has some tremendous effect on astigmatism. The following will give some introduction on astigmatism and CK treatment.

There are mainly two kinds of astigmatism. One is corneal astigmatism, which means there is some irregularity with the cornea. The other one is lenticular astigmatism, referring to there is some irregularity with the lens. At the beginning of this eye disease, there are no underlying symptoms. And later on, with the progression, people can feel the following symptoms: They may feel their vision blurred and distorted. And children may find difficult to concentrate on their study or in sports. They often feel their eyes strained. At the mean time, they may feel headaches.

Conductive Keratoplasty is a procedure to improve the overall shape of the cornea by a small probe. When it is firstly introduced, it is used for treating nearsightedness and farsightedness, but later on, they are proved also to be effective to treat astigmatism. Maybe you can not imagine that the overall treatment is only 5 minutes, but the effect is great. On the areas of cornea with irregularities, eye doctor use a small probe to concisely lead the radio frequency energy to the irregular areas. Due to the heat to this area, the area will have a shrinking. And in this way, the improvement can be achieved. With the help of topography mapping, eye doctors can achieve the improvement better and easily. If there are any other areas that need to be improved, eye doctors will return to that area and make the improvement.

As a matter of fact, it is important to have our eyes checked by our eye doctor at a regular time, and especially for children, when parents find their children often complain their vision disturbance as this can help us to detect and treat the eye problems in time. If you or your children are diagnosed of astigmatism, don’t worry that there are several ways to treat it. And there is a kind of astigmatism caused by a condition named Keratoconus. In order to reduce the damaging effect caused by Keratoconus, you can also choose to use CK together with other treatments.

Laser eye surgery is a popular choice for correcting eye problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Most of the patient who undergo laser eye surgery can improve their vision, and more than half of them bring their vision back to the level of 20/20 vision. With the development of laser eye surgery, the precise of this procedure increased greatly.

The most advanced technology of laser eye surgery is LASIK Plus, which is all known as wavefront LASIK eye surgery. LASIK Plus uses a kind of new equipment called wavefront 3D mapping system which is first used by NASA to eliminate aberrations of the telescopes lenses. The correction procedure for human eyes lenses is very similar to telescopes lenses. So wavefront mapping system is introduced as guiding system of laser eye surgery process.

The wavefront mapping system can detect the higher aberrations of your eyes curvature which usually can’t be corrected by traditional laser eye surgery. The mapping system transmits waves of light onto the eye cornea so that the computer can calculate the exactly part that need to be cut. By using LASIK Plus system, most of the patients can see much better after they undergo the eye surgery.

Since the equipment of this LASIK Plus system is much more expensive than conventional machines, the cost of LASIK Plus eye surgery is also expensive than traditional eye surgeries. However, many surgeons like to recommend Wavefront Plus eye surgery because the eyes are so important to every individual that any risk is not acceptable. And wavefront system allows the eye surgeons to provide a fast, painless and effective care for the patients who are considering undergoing laser eye surgery to improve their vision.

More and more patients also choose LASIK Plus eye surgery to correct their vision problems. It is very attractive that there will be fewer risks if wavefront system is used. And if the price of LASIK Plus eye surgery can drop in the near future, there will be more people get more benefits from it.

This is a paper that mainly introduces lutein, the role of it, and the way to get it.

Lutein, a very important member of carotenoid family, is a very strong antioxidant. It can be found in the central of our eyes, say, macular. Many harmful lights will be blocked by it.

However, lack of lutein can lead to a series of eye problems, such as Macular Degeneration. Or as we grow old, we may suffer from Age-related Macular Degeneration, which can be cured by ingesting sufficient lutein. In fact, lutein plays multifunctional to our human bodies.

Some investigations have revealed that taking sufficient is very useful and beneficial for us. Some serious eye problems that may lead to blindness, some particular cancers, Alzheimer’s diseases and atherosclerosis can also be avoided by taking sufficient lutein.

In fact, lutein can be found in our daily foods, especially leafy vegetables, fruits, and egg yolks, etc.

However, we could only intake a little lutein from diets and the rest should be supplemented. Particularly, for those who have AMD, they should intake more lutein. So, what should we do though we eat lutein-abundant foods?

It is true that we can take some supplement pills that contain sufficient lutein we need each day and many other essential nutrients. Some pills can provide what we need in a whole day.

Generally, when we buy lutein supplement pills, the doctors will recommend some combined pills for us; for those pills can provide other nutrients we need in addition to lutein.

If you are bothered by the problem how to get sufficient lutein every day, you may get the answer after reading this paper. Some supplements can help maintain the health of your eyes.

Most people seldom go to see an eye doctor for an eye exam unless they find things in vision becomes blurry and when the poor vision lead to difficulties with study or work. All of them neglect the periodic optometric examinations which are an important part of routine preventive health care. Regular eye check decreases the possible eye problems and helps to find out early diagnosis. Therefore, regular eye examinations are recommended to everyone to take every two years, especially for those who have any prescription or current problems. The fact is that they are suggested to have an eye exam once or twice a year.

Why? The Reasons are:

Regular eye exams guarantee you a near perfect vision. No matter you are a person who has any prescription or not, you do not want to have any eyesight problems. The best way to make sure that you have near perfect vision is to have a regular eye check, so that eye diagnosis can be found early, thus, early treatment can be applied. This is what we usually refer: to solve the problems in the bud. With eye check, your optometrist will provide you some good advice on the way to maintain and improve your eye health.

Regular eye exams provide precaution to computer vision syndrome. In modern world, a new eye condition called “computer vision syndrome”, for the frequent use of computer either at home or at work places, emerges. Those who have computer vision syndrome often experience headaches, blurred vision, tired eyes, and dry eyes, etc., All of those eye conditions are not in the consideration of eye problems in most people’s views, however, the fact is that they are eye problems. In such conditions, if you take regular eye exams, the eye doctor will give you corresponding suggestions to the syndrome.

Regular eye exams decrease the possibilities of certain eye diseases. Eye diseases are annoying, but if they are identified in the early stage, they can be treated without or no effect to your vision. Therefore, people should have regular eye exams even if their vision is in good condition because an exam can detect early-stage diseases–even if no symptoms are being experienced.

Regular eye exams also have impact on other health issues. Maybe you do not believe that eye health correlates to other underlying issues in the body, tumours, high cholesterol, blood pressure and diabetes, but the fact is that eye conditions have effect on those things. Therefore, eye doctor will usually advise patients to eat vegetables, like kale, broccoli and fish to maintain eye health.

Regular eye exams also are good for eyesight in children. Studies show that one in four children has vision problems, yet nearly half of parents with children 12 or younger have not taken their child to an eye doctor, plus kids always can not express themselves enough to identify a specific problem. However, with the help of optometrists, they diagnosis can be easily defined. Therefore, if you have children, you should give more care to their eyesight, for they are very vulnerable. Actually, children are more recommended to be checked regularly to detect any dyslexia or attention deficit disorder.

Laser surgery is one of the most popular methods to solve eye problems. However, this surgery is not suitable for all people. Therefore, some non-laser eye surgeries are good for those people.

The first type is implantable lenses. IOLS is another name for this surgery. While receiving the surgery, the lenses are replaced. People with myopia can receive this surgery. But whether it is good for suffers of farsightedness is still unknown.

A cut behind the cornea will be made in this procedure. After the surgery, the cut will be sealed with sutures and receivers are required to go home for some rest. Generally, there are almost no complications after the surgery. And the recovery process is very quick.

As for sufferers of farsightedness, conductive keratoplasty is ideal, another sort of non-laser surgery. The eyes of farsighted people are much different, with over-flat cornea or the eyes are too short. During the procedure, the radio waves will be used. The waves will generate some heat and reshape those eyes and corneas.

However, not all people are good candidates for conductive kertoplasty. Receivers should satisfy two conditions, over forty and have refractive errors of certain level.

Refractive lens exchange is another sort of non-laser surgery. During this procedure, the lens will be replaced by an artificial one. Sufferers of refractive errors and cataracts are good alternatives for this surgery.

Non-permanent methods are also very effective. For example, orthokeratology is very typical. In this surgery, some special contacts will be used to reshape the cornea. Patients are required to wear those contacts for several hours in day time within specific period. Once the corneas regain their shape, those contacts can also be worn for sometime.

At the end of this procedure, the shape of corneas will be rectified. Some patients think this method is too time-consuming or some of them will have to suffer from some discomfort in the procedure.

If one is not ideal candidate for laser surgery, he can choose any sort of non-laser surgeries. Of course, before using those methods, he should visit eye specialists for some suggestions.
