What kind of sunglasses should you chose to protect your vision?

Sunglasses can protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays (UV) and high-energy visible light -- light from the blue part of the spectrum, implicated in cataracts and retina damage.

Wrap around protective sunglasses also shield away wind and sunlight that affects people with dry eyes.

Here are some tips when you chose sunglasses.

Claims. Labels for sunglasses are not regulated and are often inconsistent and confusing. A sticker that says "blocks UV" or "UV-absorbent" is meaningless because it doesn't tell you how much UV is blocked. Sunglasses with stickers that claim to block a specific percentage of UV, such as "99% to 100% UV absorbent."  is a better choice

Are darker sunglasses better?   Darker lenses don't mean better UV protection. Unless darker lenses are fabricated to block UV, they can be more harmful than wearing no sunglasses. That is because they cause pupils to dilate, allowing more UV light into the eyes. Lenses should be dark enough so that you can't see your eyes when looking in the mirror, but light enough to see curbs, stoplights and stairs.

How much should you pay?   It's possible to find great, protective sunglasses in the $20 to $60 range. More expensive sunglasses are not necessarily better, but super-cheap sunglasses (less than $20) are less likely to offer adequate protection.

New Study Indicate Omega 3 May Help Wet Macular Degeneration

Macular degeneration creates vision problems especially when there is a macular hole- as depicted in the photo above where one cannot see the image at the center vision field.  This significantly impairs quality of life.

We macular degeneration is when the eye starts bleeding due to the fragile blood vessels in the eye, which can cause total blindness if left untreated.

A new study shows that omega-3 fatty acids could help with wet macular degeneration. Macular degeneration is expected to increase by fifty percent (50%) in older adults in industrialized countries by 2020. As the leading cause of vision loss in the elderly, it is a condition of serious significance. The macula is the central part of the retina.  It is responsible for the central vision. The retina is a thin layer of nerves and visual receptors at the back of the eye that is composed of rods and cones. It transmits visual signals to the brain. It is supported by the choroid, a network of blood vessels that feed and nourish the retina.

There are two forms of macular degeneration: wet and dry. In wet macular degeneration the main cause of vision loss is the growth of new blood vessels (neovascularization) in the choroid. These new blood vessels are fragile and leak blood, adding debris that clouds the retina and sometimes results in a retinal detachment. One potential treatment for wet macular degeneration is reducing neovascularization (new blood vessels) with a series of injections such as Lucentis, Avestin or Eylea. These are shots directly into the eye ball.

A new in vivo study shows that omega-3 fatty acids can radically reduce neovascularization in the choroid. The effect seems to be the result of metabolites of omega-3 fatty acids produced by the cytochrome P450 enzyme system. Mice fed omega-3′s had statistically significant lower rates of neovascularization. This offers promising hope for those suffering from wet macular degeneration, which comprises about 10% of all AMD cases.

Omega-3 fatty acids are found most plentifully in fish oil and krill oil, which is readily available in health food stores. There are vegetarian versions as well through algae sources.

Here are the references for this article.

Anti-Aging, Preserve and Improve Vision

It is believed that macular degeneration is a caused at least in part by accumulation of unwanted proteins, lipids and debris in the eye.

TheraLife MaculaEye formula works to improve the integrity of the retina membrane by preserving and improving permeability to optimize fluid and protein transport.

This facilitates the transport of unwanted lipids, proteins out of the eye in order to improve and prevent vision loss.

Some of our customer who use TheraLife Eye has an allergy component to their dry eye syndrome.  Here is a story from one of our customers who used an elimination diet to further improve her dry eye relief while taking TheraLife Eye on daily basis. 

Here is her story

I have been taking TheraLife Eye for 4 years now.  I have allergies and my eyes are always itchy.  Recently, I tried and Elimination Diet which gave me further improvement.
This diet includes, No Gluten, No refined sugar, No dairy, and No caffeine. Also No GMO corn products. After two weeks on the diet, I had an appreciative change in my eye health - No redness, always moist and no itching senzation. This diet is not difficult to follow as one may think because  many restaurants provide great choices nowadays to allow you to stay on this diet, including Starbucks with no caffeine passion ice tea.   I continue to take TheraLife Eye for dry eye relief.  Adding this diet allowed me to be allergy free.
