    Default Eye Care Facts & Myths

    Eye Care Facts & Myths

    (We have all been told by someone at some time, “You’ll hurt your eyes if you do that!” But do you really know what is or is not good for your eyes?
    Test yourself with the following true or false statements and see how much you know about your eyes.)


    “Using computers can damage your eyes.”

    False. Working on computers or video display terminals (VDTs) will not harm your eyes. Often, when using a VDT for long periods of time, just as when reading or doing other close work, you blink less often than normal. This reduced rate of blinking makes your eyes dry, which may lead to the feeling of eyestrain or fatigue.

    Try to take regular breaks to look up or across the room. Looking at objects farther away often relieves the feeling of strain on your eyes. Keep the monitor between 18 to 24 inches from your face and at a slight downward angle. Also consider the use of artificial tears. If your vision blurs or your eyes tire easily, you should have your eyes examined by an ophthalmologist.


    “Reading in dim light is harmful to your eyes.”

    False. Using your eyes in dim light does not damage them. For centuries, all nighttime reading and sewing was done by candlelight or with gas or kerosene lamps. However, good lighting does make reading easier and can prevent eye fatigue.


    “Wearing the wrong kind of eyeglasses damages your eyes.

    False. Eyeglasses are devices used to sharpen your vision. Although correct eyeglasses or contacts help you to see clearly, wearing a pair with the wrong lenses, or not wearing glasses at all, will not physically damage your eyes. However, children less than eight years old who need eyeglasses should wear their own prescription to prevent the possibility of developing amblyopia or “lazy eye.”


    “Wearing eyeglasses will cause you to become dependent on them.

    False. Eyeglasses are used to correct blurry vision. Since clear vision with eyeglasses is preferable to uncorrected vision, you may find that you want to wear your eyeglasses more often. Although it may feel as if you are becoming dependent on your eyeglasses, you are actually just getting used to seeing clearly.

    “Sitting close to the television can damage children’s eyes.

    False. Children can focus at close distance without eyestrain better than adults. They often develop the habit of holding reading materials close to their eyes or sitting right in front of the television.

    There is no evidence that this damages their eyes, and the habit usually diminishes as children grow older. Children with nearsightedness (myopia) sometimes sit close to the television in order to see the images more clearly.


    “Eating carrots improves your vision.

    False. Carrots are rich in vitamin A, which is essential for sight, but many other foods also contain this vitamin. A well-balanced diet, with or without carrots, provides all the vitamin A necessary for good vision.


    “People with weak eyes should avoid reading fine print.

    False. It is said that people with weak eyes or people who wear glasses will “wear out” their eyes sooner if they read fine print or do a lot of detail work.

    The concept of the eye as a muscle is incorrect. The eye more closely resembles a camera. A camera will not wear out sooner just because it is used to photograph intricate detail. You can use your eyes without fear of wearing them out.


    “Contact lenses can prevent nearsightedness from getting worse.

    False. Some people have been led to believe that wearing contact lenses will permanently correct nearsightedness so that eventually they won’t need either contacts or eyeglasses. There is no evidence that wearing contact lenses produces a permanent improvement in vision or prevents nearsightedness from getting worse.


    “All ‘eye doctors’ are the same.

    False. An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor (M.D. or D.O.) with special training to diagnose and treat all diseases of the eye.To become an ophthalmologist requires a minimum of eight years of medical school and hospital training after college. An ophthalmologist is qualified to provide all aspects of eye care, including cataract, laser, and other eye surgery.

    Optometrists (O.D.) and opticians are other types of eye care professionals. They are trained and licensed to provide some aspects of eye care, but they are not medical doctors and have not attended medical school and residency training. In most states, they cannot prescribe all medications or perform surgery.

    This fact is obviously not false, rather it should have said there are substitutes in your meal that can also provide Vit-A.

    @babu This is a myth among Doctors- Reading in dim light is harmful to your eyes

    Ref: British Medical Journal -
    revealed that reading in low light does not damage eyes, but rather causes eye strain. Eye strain is no walk in the park, though.

    Copy & paste from another site- guardian.co.uk

    According to my knowledge, we can protect our eyes even when works on computers continuously and we should maintain correct distance between monitor and our eyes. We should take breaks at regular time of intervals when we watching computer and have to maintain a good diet with more protein food. It is also better to consult an eye specialist regularly and when we go outside we must wear glasses to protect from dust particles with the help of some tips also we can protect our eyes and now-a-days many eye care centers are available and they provides best services also.
