Just came across an article about John Galliano designing contact lenses with the Christian Dior logo. Kind of cool…but kind of creepy at the same time. I’ve heard of matching the bag with the shoes but the bag and the contact lenses? Might be easier to match your reading glasses with your outfit but the article is worth a glance just for the novelty of the idea. Click here to read more.
As I was perusing the web in my quest to find interesting and relevant articles on reading glasses, I found this very cute article of one woman’s journey to middle age and failing eyesight. Everyone has a different story, but most, I have a suspicion, begin with a menu and “mood” lighting in a restaurant.
Excerpt below from the article “Bad Eyesight: it’s hard to see it coming” by Denise Malloy
“I don’t even bother with the menu anymore. Instead, I listen attentively as an enthusiastic server rattles off the specials. Then I choose something, whether or not I can identify it. As a result, I’ve become a pretty adventurous eater. (My motto: Hope It Tastes Like Chicken). But I don’t shun the menu because of my fondness for bizarre foods; it’s because I don’t want to risk an awkward encounter with the fire department. After nearly setting a menu on fire in a fine dining establishment, I decided the safest and least embarrassing route is to take the server’s suggestion. But the truth is simple behind my new approach to dining out: I can’t see the menu anymore. I need bifocals. And I’m in severe denial about it.” Click here to read entire article
Reading Sunglasses can help prevent the onset of cataract formation. I found some interesting information on other preventive measures as well from the article
Cataracts needn’t be a curse by Senior Lookout Anne Springer.
Below is an excerpt:
There are some things that people can do to help prevent early cataracts. Proper management of diabetes or hypertension is very important, as reducing one’s intake of salt or alcohol. Another good strategy is to quit smoking. Sunglasses that block ultraviolet light should be worn, and it’s also important to eat a diet rich in appropriate amounts of antioxidants, such as beta carotene (didn’t your mother always tell you that carrots were good for your eyes?), selenium, and vitamins E and C. Nuts, turkey, and seafoods are a natural source of selenium. Vitamin E is also found in nuts and in vegetable oils. One tablespoon of wheat germ oil fulfills 100 percent of the daily requirement of Vitamin E.

Here are some fun facts about growing older and looking awesome in your fashion reading glasses.
Forget childhood taunts and four-eyed fears. Glasses can provide style, colour and sophistication to your look, every day.
“Eye strain occurs when the eyes are overused and the muscles made extremely weak in the process. Its effects vary from person to person. Those with very sensitive eyes may develop severe problems when there is a long history of strain, while for those with tough eyes, the effect may just be irritation and discomfort,” says Muyiwa Ajayi, a Lagos-based optician. “The best bet is for those who read a lot to take lots of vitamins and fruits like oranges and water melons which improve eyesight, besides visiting the optician at least once in six months for eye check-up. It would also help if they could use prescribed eyeglasses and eye-friendly monitors so that computer glare does not damage their eyes.”
I came across this interesting question while perusing what’s new in the world of reading glasses. I think we’ve all asked ourselves this question in
the hopes that maybe exercise can stave off the inevitable. It works for our bodies…why not our eyes? The answer may surprise you.
Q. I am 51 and have recently noticed that newspaper print is getting harder to read. To forestall the need for reading glasses, should I give my eyes a daily workout by reading the paper without glasses, or will reading small print make the problem worse?
A. Neither course of action will make a difference in the long run, and in the short run, “an unnecessary workout by reading the paper without glasses will only lead to blurriness, headaches and frustration,” said Dr. Christopher E. Starr.
Starr is an assistant professor of ophthalmology at Weill Cornell Medical College.
“Your difficulty is almost certainly presbyopia, a condition that appears at middle age and is caused by a progressive loss of flexibility in the lens, making it harder and harder for the lens to change shape to focus clearly on objects at different distances.
“The difficulty is most noticeable when trying to view small targets like printed text.
“Presbyopia is purely related to increasing age and there are no exercises that can prevent it or slow it down,” Starr said in an e-mail message.
“Wearing the correct eyeglass prescription will allow you to read comfortably at a normal distance and will not weaken the eye or cause the presbyopia to progress further.”
