It wasn’t so long ago that the idea of a smart contact lens seemed like the stuff of science fiction, but it’s pretty close to becoming science fact.
Let’s face it: glasses and contact lenses are pretty amazing.
You know the feeling - you blink repeatedly expecting relief for your eyes, but all you get is sandpaper. You buy eye drops expecting to be soothed, but they only bring relief for a few seconds. Dry eyes are one of the most common eye conditions today, and one of the hardest to ignore.
If you’ve ever struggled to read a road sign from a distance or a clock from across the room, you may be facing the same condition as 40% of Americans. Myopia, or nearsightedness, is your eye’s lack of ability to focus on things more than a few feet away.
Do you remember in old cartoons when a character would see a delicious plate of food and his eyes would comically bulge out like footballs?
Nearly everyone over the age of 65 will experience a reduced elasticity of the lenses of their eyes — a condition called presbyopia.
Compared to all the different frame styles and lens shapes of glasses, it might seem like contact lenses are much simpler.
Human eyesight is an incredibly complex system, and a problem anywhere along the way can lead to seriously compromised vision.
One of the most essential things we can do to maintain our quality of life is protect our eyesight.
An estimated 60 percent of children with learning difficulties have undiagnosed vision problems, and 80 percent of learning is visual.
