Anti-Glare Glasses

anti-glare-glassesAnti-glare glasses are special glasses designed to help reduce and relieve eye strain caused by looking at a computer for a period of time. When you stare at a computer screen, it forces your eye muscles to remain in one position. Generally, this position is also at a strenuous level. Anti-glare glasses help to reduce this strain.

Eye strain is characterized by blurred vision, burning eyes, headache, and tired eyes. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms while using the computer, anti-glare glasses may be a wise buy for you. Even if you are not a regular computer user, your eyes may benefit from anti-glare glasses. In addition to being affected by the glare from your computer screen, your eyes can be come strained from being in a room with poor lighting. Anti-glare glasses can also be beneficial for this type of situation, as they help reduce the strain on your eyes.

Anti-glare glasses help reduce the amount of strain your eyes feel by reducing the convergence of your eyes and by helping to reposition your eyes to a more comfortable position. This reduces the strain placed on the muscles in your eyes, as well as the tension your eyes experience. In addition, anti-glare glasses help reduce the amount of ultraviolet radiation that reaches your eyes, and they do not magnify the light like traditional eyeglasses do.

Anti-glare glasses can also be glasses with a special anti-reflective coating.  In addition, it eliminates the appearance of “halos” around the headlights of cars at night. If this distracts you while you are driving, anti-glare glasses may be right for you.

On the down side, anti-glare glasses with this special coating are more prone to becoming scratched and to holding oily fingerprints. In order to prevent scratching, it is necessary to use a special cloth to wipe anti-glare glasses clean.

The Best Way to Clean Your Glasses

The Best Way to Clean Your GlassesNearly 50% of Americans wear corrective glasses, according to the trade group Vision Council. And most of them are guilty of the biggest crime in lens care: Exhaling onto their lenses, then wiping the fog off with their shirt sleeves. But does this really damage your lenses?

Simple Solution

The best way to clean your glasses is to run them under warm water and put a tiny drop of dish washing detergent on the tip of your fingers to create a lather on the lens. Then rinse with warm water, and dry with a clean, soft cotton cloth.

Glass vs. Plastic

Of the 69.1 million Americans who bought prescription spectacles last year, most purchased plastic lenses; glass has gone out of fashion as safety concerns have arisen. Unlike that hard surface, plastic is soft and can scratch easily.

Attempting to clean glasses when dry only exacerbates the problem, since a wet surface is slicker than a dry one.

Reflecting on the Problem

Lenses typically have some form of protective coating and should never come into contact with ammonia, bleach, vinegar or window cleaner. “Those chemicals can break down the coating or just strip them.

Clean Lines

Natural oils from your hands, eyelashes and face can lead to a lot of buildup each day, reducing lenses’ effectiveness.

Whatever you do, don’t use the most handy form of water to clean your lenses.

Home Care for a Foreign Object in the Eye

Foreign Object in the EyeIf you suspect you have a foreign object in your eye, it is important to initiate treatment promptly to avoid infection and the possibility of damaged vision. Take these precautions:

  • Do not rub or put pressure on the eye.
  • Do not use any utensils or implements, such as tweezers or cotton swabs, on the surface of the eye.
  • Do not remove contact lenses unless there is sudden swelling or you have suffered a chemical injury.

If you suspect you have a foreign object in your eye or are attempting to help someone who has one, take the following preliminary steps before initiating any home care:

  • Wash your hands.
  • Look at the affected eye in an area with bright light.
  • To examine the eye and find the object, look up while pulling the lower lid down. Follow this by looking down while flipping up the inside of the upper lid.

The safest technique for removing a foreign object from your eye will differ according to the type of object you are trying to remove and where it is located in the eye.

The most common location for a foreign object is under the upper eyelid. To remove a foreign object in this position:

  • Immerse the side of your face with the affected eye in a flat container of water. While the eye is under water, open and close the eye several times to flush out the object.
  • The same results can be accomplished using an eyecup purchased from a drugstore.
  • If the object is stuck, pull out the upper lid and stretch it over the lower lid to loosen the object.

To treat a foreign object located beneath the lower eyelid:

  • Pull out the lower eyelid or press down on the skin below the eyelid to see underneath it.
  • If the object is visible, try tapping it with a damp cotton swab.
  • For a persistent object, try to flush it out by flowing water on the eyelid as you hold it open.
  • You also can try using an eyecup to flush out the object.

If there are many tiny fragments from a substance, such as grains of sand in the eye, you will have to flush out the particles instead of removing each one individually. To do this:

  • Use a wet cloth to remove any particles from the area surrounding the eye.
  • Immerse the side of your face with the affected eye in a flat container of water. While the eye is under water, open and close the eye several times to flush out the particles.
  • For younger children, pour a glass of warm water into the eye instead of immersing it. Hold the child face up. Keep the eyelid open while you pour water into the eye to flush out the particles. This technique works best if one person pours the water while another holds the child’s eyelids open.

Cause of Blindness

Leading Cause of BlindnessCataract is the leading cause of blindness worldwide, and there are more than 24 million Americans age 40 and older who have cataract in the United States alone, according to the Vision Problems in the U.S. report from Prevent Blindness.  Cataract is a clouding of the eye’s lens which blocks or changes the passage of light into the eye.

The recent Cost of Vision Problems:  The Economic Burden of Vision Loss and Eye Disorders in the United States report found that at $10.7 billion, cataract is the second costliest vision disorder (behind refractive error) and the most expensive medical diagnosis.

The exact cause of a cataract is unknown.  Most often, a cataract is part of getting older. With age comes a greater risk of developing a cataract. There are also several possible risk factors for cataracts, such as:

  • Intense heat or long-term exposure to UV rays from the sun
  • Certain diseases, such as diabetes
  • Inflammation in the eye
  • Hereditary influences
  • Events before birth, such as German measles in the mother
  • Long-term steroid use
  • Eye injuries
  • Eye diseases
  • Smoking

“The best thing we can do to protect our vision is to get regular eye exams,” said Hugh R. Parry   “We can also save our vision by maintaining healthy lifestyles like eating leafy green vegetables, exercising and quitting smoking.  All we do to benefit our overall health can benefit our eyes as well!”
