Wearing Glasses- You are one eye test away

There are times when elderly people only wear glasses.
Once it became a symbol of Intellectuals.
Now, school kids, teachers, doctors,geeks, bullies and all using this wearable device.

  • I went to the eye hospital to see my uncle and now I'm wearing glasses. 
  • There are many friends like me had an accidental eye test and now wearing glasses because short sightedness is a most common eye defect in India and Asia. 
Wearing Glasses - you are one eye test away

Every other individual is short-sighted/nearsighted(Myopia).

  • 30%of Americans are affected by Myopia. 
  • As per time magazine, almost 90%of the Asian school kids affected by nearsightedness. 

Genetic reasons and height factors cause this supposedly.
 But in most cases,

  • Hectic academical pressure, spending indoor most of the time and lack of sunlight cause this defect. 
  • Wearing glasses or contacts are maintain and not a cure for nearsightedness.
  • Laser surgery and it's results are debatable. That may be an easy money for the hospitals. 

Prevention
Spending time in bright Sunny outdoors.
And most importantly, Less pressure.

Now with less pressure side...
  • Increased number of eye hospitals suggests they do good business. So, medicine students keep an eye on Opthalmology .
  • Since, nearsightedness is a common defect among us, the future army and police selection should include the candidates with glasses?.
  • At least we are started following Gandhi in wearing glasses.

  1. Myopia commonly known as being nearsighted is a condition of the eye where the light that comes in does not directly focus on the retina but in front of it. This causes the image that one sees when looking at a distant object to be out of focus, but in focus when looking at a close object. Wearing glasses are good but I have heard that Lasik for nearsightedness is the most common procedure for those suffering from myopia. Well it depends on people what procedure they think suitable for them... Take care.. Thanks
