    FY EYE! How do 3D movies work?

    FY EYE! How do 3D movies work?
     
    In order to see in 3D, each eye must see a slightly different picture. This is accomplished in nature by your eyes being spaced apart so each eye has its own view. The brain then puts the two pictures together to form one 3D image.
     
    The technology behind 3D movies is actually pretty simple: they recreate the way humans see normally! Two cameras record the same scene from slightly different positions.Then, when you're watching the film, the same scene is projected simultaneously from two different angles in two different colors, red and cyan (or blue or green). Here's where those cool glasses come in -- the colored filters separate the two different images so each image only enters one eye. Your brain puts the two pictures back together and now you're running with the Na'vis on Pandora!
     
    Interestingly, some people with vision problems that keep their eyes from aligning or working together properly can't see the 3D screen effects properly, or experience the 3D effect as uncomfortable or dizzying. 
     
    If 3D doesn't thrill your eyes, or you notice that your eyes begin reacting differently to 3D movies than they have in the past, it may be time for an eye exam - book yours today at 10/10 Optics!
     
     

    FY EYE! All About Progressive Lenses

    FY EYE! All About Progressive Lenses
     
    Progressive lenses are an amazing piece of vision enhancement technology, allowing multiple vision fields to be incorporated into a single lens without any clear distinction between the fields. The focal point in the lenses progressively and seamlessly changes from far to mid-range to near: you simply raise your gaze to clearly see far objects, look through the middle of the lens to see mid-range objects, and lower your gaze to focus on objects close to your face. 
     
    Unlike traditional bifocals or trifocals, there are no visible lines separating the different fields of a progressive lens. Your eyes are seen clearly through progressive eyewear, and there are no "lens lines" to distract your vision. 
     
    If you're interested in making the seamless transition to progressive lenses, come see us at 10/10 Optics today!

    FY EYE! Reduce Your Risk of Digital Eye Strain

    FY EYE! Reduce Your Risk of Digital Eye Strain
    The easiest way to reduce risk of digital eye strain when working at a computer or using a smart phone or tablet is to follow what many optometrists and ophthalmologists call the "20-20-20" rule:
     
    Every 20 minutes, look away from your screen and view an object that's at least 20 feet away for 20 seconds.
     
    This simple technique has two effects -- it relaxes eye muscles that keep your eyes focused when viewing close objects, which reduces eye fatigue, and it stimulates you to blink your eyes, which reduces dry eye symptoms.
     
    Other things you can do to reduce your risk of digital eye strain include:
    Blinking your eyes fully after each page view.
    Increasing the size of the font on your screen.
    Increasing your device's brightness and/or contrast settings.
    Using a device with a higher resolution screen.
    Making sure your device is at least 10 inches from your eyes.
     
    If you're experiencing eye strain or other vision problems, make sure to book an exam with Dr. Rozenberg at 10/10 Optics ASAP!

    FY EYE! 3 Tips For Wearing Contacts in Winter

    Last updated 6 months ago

    FY EYE! 3 Tips For Wearing Contacts in Winter
    1. Keep eye drops handy! Between the chapping cold outside and the desert-dry heat inside, your eyes are much more likely to dry out, which can lead to extra discomfort (and even eye infections) in contact-wearers.
     
    2. Make sure you change out your contacts regularly! By swapping your lenses on time, they are better able to conduct oxygen, reduce irritation, and increase comfort.
     
    3. Come see Dr. Rozenberg here at 10/10 Optics if you're having issues with your eyes or contacts lenses during the winter months.  Dr. Rozenberg can prescribe contact lenses which you can swap out more frequently, contacts that are more appropriate for dry eyes, or even prescription eye drops if necessary.
