Tell Your Children to Play Outdoors for Better Eyesight

playing-outside-300x199Now there’s one more reason to tell your kids to play outside! Did you know that children who play outdoors have better eyesight than those who play indoors according to Inquisitr.

Nearsightedness has increased over 65% since 1970 which is largely due to children playing video and computer games. Nearsightedness, also known as Myopia, is a condition where the light that travels into the eye does not focus on the retina but in front of it. This error causes far away images to be blurry. Images that are nearby are not affected and appear clear. 

The only way to correct nearsightedness is to wear corrective glasses, contact lenses are surgery. It’s important to book an eye exam for your child if you’re worried as nearsightedness is linked to serious eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and retina detachment.

Fun Facts About Your Eyes

EyesOur eyes are very complicated and amazing. They seem pretty simple, but there’s really a lot to know about how they function.

You’ve had your peepers since you were born, so you may think you know them pretty well, but here are some fun facts you may not know about eyes:

  1. The average blink lasts for about 1/10th of a second.
  2. While it takes some time for most parts of your body to warm up to their full potential, your eyes are on their “A game” 24/7.
  3. Eyes heal quickly. With proper care, it only takes about 48 hours for the eye to repair a corneal scratch.
  4. Seeing is such a big part of everyday life that it requires about half of the brain to get involved.
  5. Newborns don’t produce tears. They make crying sounds, but the tears don’t start flowing until they are about 4-13 weeks old.
  6. Around the world, about 39 million people are blind and roughly 6 times that many have some kind of vision impairment.
  7. Doctors have yet to find a way to transplant an eyeball. The optic nerve that connects the eye to the brain is too sensitive to reconstruct successfully.
  8. The cells in your eye come in different shapes. Rod-shaped cells allow you to see shapes, and cone-shaped cells allow you to see color.
  9. You blink about 12 times every minute.
  10. Your eyes are about 1 inch across and weigh about 0.25 ounce.
  11. Some people are born with two differently colored eyes. This condition is heterochromia.
  12. Even if no one in the past few generations of your family had blue or green eyes, these recessive traits can still appear in later generations.
  13. Each of your eyes has a small blind spot in the back of the retina where the optic nerve attaches. You don’t notice the hole in your vision because your eyes work together to fill in each other’s blind spot.
  14. Out of all the muscles in your body, the muscles that control your eyes are the most active.
  15. 80% of vision problems worldwide are avoidable or even curable.

Tips for Applying Eye Cosmetics Safely

Tips for Applying Eye Cosmetics SafelyIt’s also important to apply your eye makeup safely to help prevent injury. Getting anything that close to your eye can potentially cause damage — so when you’re painstakingly drawing that perfect line, take care not to get the cosmetics in your eye.

Here at 20/20 Eyeglass Superstore, we’re in the business of connecting customers with the perfect pair of eyeglasses, sunglasses and/or contact lenses. Additionally, we love teaching people about proper eye care and tips.
Try these eye cosmetic safety suggestions:
  • Never put your eye cosmetics on while you’re driving or riding in a car. Your mascara wand can all too easily scratch your cornea — not to mention the risks of inattentive driving. You may also want to avoid applying eye makeup on buses or subways – sudden stops can also increase the risk that you’ll scratch your eye.
  • Skip eye cosmetics when you’ve got an irritated or infected eye — and if you think that a particular cosmetic is irritating your eyes, stop using it right away.
  • Keep eye cosmetics outside of your eye — don’t use eyeliner on the inner eyelids, where makeup can get inside your eye.
  • Always wash your hands before you dig into your makeup bag and start applying eye cosmetics.
  • Avoid eye cosmetics that are iridescent, glittery, or shiny, as they may contain ingredients that could scratch or irritate the eye.
  • Make sure that all eye cosmetic applicators are clean before you use them — it’s a good idea to wash or replace all brushes and sponges frequently.
We hope you enjoyed our four tips on applying eye cosmetics safely. Drop in at 20/20 Eyeglass Orangecity Making a budget, updating your prescription, taking care of your eyeglasses and doing your research are great ways to stay on plan!
