    FY EYE! How to fight Winter Dry Eye Syndrome
     
    Between the freezing cold  outside and the blistering heat inside, wintertime leaves a lot of us feeling totally dried out! Here are some easy steps you can take to prevent your eyes from becoming dry and irritated, or to help soothe your eyes if they're already feeling parched:
    • Wear sunglasses when you go outside; they help protect your eyes from the chapping cold and wind.
    • Run a humidifier or cool-mist vaporizer in your home and office to replenish the moisture in the air lost to heating. 
    • Keep a bottle of eye drops on hand to give your eyes some relief if they're feeling dry.
    • Drink lots of water. Staying well-hydrated can help your eyes stay well-hydrated, too.  
    If you find that dry eyes are an ongoing problem for you, book an appointment with Dr. Rozenberg at 10/10 Optics today!

    FY EYE! Sweet news for chocolate lovers!

    FY EYE! Sweet news for chocolate lovers!
     
    Here's some sweet news! Scientists with the University of Reading in England tested the vision of 30 men and women before and after eating a bar of either white or dark chocolate. Those who ate dark chocolate performed better on vision tests—better than before the tests and better than the other participants who received white chocolate.
     
    Why did the dark chocolate outperform the white? Dark chocolate has higher concentrations of flavonoids, the antioxidants also found in teas, some fruit, and red wine. These flavonoids increase blood flow to the brain and the retina of the eye, which means a piece of high quality dark chocolate could help you see better in low-contrast conditions!
     
    What's sweeter than chocolate and even better for your eyes? A new pair of frames from 10/10 Optics! Come see us and we'll help you find frames you can't help falling in love with.
     
     

    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

    Last updated 2 months ago

    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!
