Andrea Zecevic & Ophthalmologist Discussion On Preventing Wrinkles and Eye Damage
Fusing Business and Healthcare: How to avoid eye damage and prevent serious illness NVMedics is a wholy owned subsidiary of National Health Scan (INHSN) quoted on OTC Markets
In the United States of America alone, around 75% individuals are required to wear some form of corrective lens which amounts to 225 million people.
Visiting an ophthalmologist or optometrist as soon as you notice blurred or distorted vision can help you avoid eyestrain, damage, headaches, and can help you improve your performance at work or school.
Andrea Zecevic of NVMedix recently visited an ophthalmologist in Etobicoke, Ontario to find out more about the use of glasses, contact lenses and the importance of wearing sunglasses.
Here is what Mrs. Zecevic found:
"Many people take their vision for granted only to find out later in life the amount of damage done due to neglect"- started Andrea. Visiting an ophthalmologist should be something that every one of us does at least once a year. It has been proven that a large percentage of people, from all over the world, are suffering from various refractive disorders including astigmatism, presbyopia, myopia, keratomalacia, and night blindness to name a few.
Ideally, one must be aware on the different measures on proper eye care. Proper diet, changing your reading habits as well as having a regular eye check-up are just some of the most important steps to better eyesight.
Lenses are specifically meant to control the light entering one's eyes, wherein the focus may greatly depend on which particular eye problem a person may be suffering from. This simply means that eyeglasses are adjusted and made depending on the person and may not be used by another.
Not long ago people chose not to wear corrective lenses due to two simple reasons: it is not fashionable and not comfortable to wear. Nowadays because of new technology, most of these pairs of eyeglasses are perfectly created to be fashionable and convenient to wear at the same time.
In Andreas discussion with the opthamologist she found some valuable information she wished to share: Sun glasses as we know will do more than protect your eyes from harmful UV Rays, and ultraviolet (UV) radiation which has been attributed to the development of many eye problems including cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (AMD). In addition to this sun glasses will also help to prevent wrinkles by protecting the delicate skin around the eyes from premature aging. Good quality sunglasses protect your eyes from 100% of sun's harmful UV rays.
Interesting Factual information
1. Cataract affects nearly 22 million Americans age 40 and older. By age 80, more than half of all Americans have cataract. Direct medical costs for cataract treatment are estimated at $6.8 billion annually.
2. Glaucoma affects almost 2.3 million Americans age 40 and older.
3. More than 2 million Americans age 50 and older have advanced AMD, the stage that can lead to severe vision impairment.
4. More than one million people, age 40 and older are legally blind. (Defined as visual acuity, with best correction in the better eye, worse than or equal to 20/200, or visual field less than 20 degrees in diameter.)
5. More than 32 million Americans age 40 and older are myopic and more than 12 million are e hyperopic.
When is it most important to wear sunglasses?
It's generally a good idea to wear sunglasses anytime you're outdoors but especially when:
a. In summer when UV radiation is at least 3 times higher than it is during winter
b. At the beach or near the water (one of the most reflective surfaces)
c. You're in the mountains or outside at any high elevations.
d. If you have had cataract surgery/ are taking photo-sensitizing drugs
