Common Causes Of Hair Loss

Are you starting to lose some hair? You’re probably wondering why.

Everyone loses hair on a daily basis but if yours is too noticeable that it affects your overall look, then you must be more wary.

If you’re experiencing excessive hair loss, you’re certainly hoping that there’s something you can do about it. But first, it’s also important for you to know why that is happening to you.

Here are some common and natural causes of hair loss:

1. Aging – This one is quite an obvious cause as most of us tend to lose more hair as we get up there in age. For sure you’ve noticed your parents, and for sure some of your grandparents, losing more hair as they grow older.

However, when it comes to aging, there is no certain age range as to when hair loss might most likely occur. As a result of aging, hair loss can already occur as early as your 20s and 30s. That’s why if not you, some of your friends are already starting to lose hair evidently! This is due to the inevitable hormonal changes that your body is bound to undergo at any given time.

2. Stress – Another prominent cause of hair loss is stress. Yes, just like other negative health conditions, stress is a factor in hair loss. Living in a naturally stressful world, it’s no surprise that rapid hair loss is a rising issue.

Excess stress on the mind might be inevitable but you can counter that by setting aside at least an hour or two every day to unwind and relax your mind. Easing your mind and body will positively affect your overall health and wellness, including your hair.

3. Genetics – One of the most common, if not the most, the cause of hair loss is simply genetics. If your parent happens to naturally lose hair significantly, there’s a fair chance that the same might happen to you.

If you’re starting to notice that you’re already suffering the same fate, then you’re experiencing hereditary hair loss. This can be obtained through either side of your family but if both your parents happen to experience hair loss, you have a high risk of having problems yourself.

Whatever the reason may be, you certainly would not want to lose more hair significantly for sure. That’s why you’ve been trying to fight it off by trying out products that might help.

Well, it’s better to try something that’s effective and proven for your hair’s best.

Understanding The Risks Of Contact Lenses

Most people with a poor eyesight use contact lenses as an alternative for eyeglasses.

While contacts may present a lot of positives for you and your vision in a short haul, they likewise have some risks along with them.

In terms of addressing visual problems, contact lenses are a very common option for a lot of people. If you happen to be one of those who relies on contacts, you need to understand that there are numerous risks that come with wearing them on a regular basis.

If you are not that familiar in terms of the proper care for your contact lenses every day, you become susceptible to possible dangers such as various eye infections and corneal ulcers, which can lead to more damage down the line if left untreated.

By following the proper guidelines in terms of caring for your contact lenses, you reduce the risks of any complications. However, according to studies, while the risks may be reduced, they are not completely eliminated.

Here are some potential risks that wearing contact lenses can present you:

1. Common Symptoms – When it comes to our eyes, there are symptoms that can be indicators if something might be wrong with them. These symptoms are dry eyes, discomfort, irritation, swelling, itching, pain, light sensitivity, blurred vision, and burning.

If you’re starting to feel most of these symptoms, it’s best for you to immediately schedule an eye checkup with an ophthalmologist to see what’s going down with your eyes.

2. Eye Infections – Every time you’re wearing your contact lenses, there’s always a risk of eye infections, which includes common conjunctivitis. Here are the risk factors of eye infections in line with contact lens usage: cleaning of lenses under unclean water and/or re-used contact solution, and swimming without taking off your contacts.

3. Corneal Abrasion – Contact lenses naturally have a risk of causing scratches to the surface of the eye called corneal abrasion. The risk is increased even more if you tend to wear contacts that have not been prescribed specifically for your eyes. A corneal abrasion can be quite painful, and it may also lead to more eye damage if left uncured.

4. Corneal Ulcer – This is soreness in the cornea that is caused by eye infections. Severe pain, blurred vision, and swelling, among others.

5. Acanthamoeba Keratitis – This condition is quite rare but can be quite dangerous. Though rare, contact lens wearers are at risk of getting a parasitic infection named Acanthamoeba Keratitis. This dangerous infection can cause severe pain and eventually, blindness. Cleaning contacts in contaminated water can get you this infection.
