Conquering the World with Perfect Vision

Are you a travel junkie but cannot make the most out of your trips because you lose your glasses or your contact lenses were torn? Bid good bye to your “second eyes” after LASIK surgery. Fully enjoy your adventures without the hassle! See how LASIK can become your best friend when it comes to your dream travels.

  1. Worry-less during emergencies

Time will always come where difficult situation arises. But if you had to act fast and your eyeglass is not anywhere near, you might put yourself in a more dangerous situation. Feel secure during your flights and trips without fumbling for your vision aids.

  1. Trips are more enjoyable

Explore more of the best sights to see with everything is as clear as HD. After LASIK, you don’t have to worry about your glasses falling off or your eyes getting dry from contacts. You now have the freedom to enjoy your next trips and adventures; may it be  a simple walk in the beach, temple hopping in a new city, or engaging in  extreme activities like parasailing, surfing, or conquering a new mountain.

  1. Save time and space

Packing can be a hassle if you’re an occasional traveler. Just imagine how additional stress it will take you     to pack your lens         solution in a smaller container. Plus, you will waste your time finding your eyeglass case    underneath your pile of clothes.  Save the extra time and space by getting rid of them.

  1. Swimming is something you can now do

Dunk your whole body in the ocean and enjoy the underwater world. Prescription goggles do exist but who doesn’t want to swim free without anything attached to your body. Besides, you’re already wearing glasses on land, do you want to wear the same thing under water? Enjoy the crystal clear waters as much as you enjoy your crystal clear vision.

  1. Appreciate light shows

Night-life is always fun in any country. But you can’t truly enjoy it since they irritate your vision or the lights reflect to your eyeglass. After having a clearer vision, you can now appreciate every color of light there is!

  1. Be photo ready anytime

Make the most out of the view by having them as your photo background. Show your true beauty underneath your eyeglasses. Also, you will never have any marks on the side of your ears and on your nose bridge which is never charming.

  1. Say yes to sunglasses!

Never again would you need to squint every time the sun hits your eye.  Look and feel fashionable with your new specs. You can now enjoy the warmth without sacrificing your vision.

  1. Feel free

Change your life by having perfect vision. You deserve to be free and see the world in its full bloom. Bid good bye to your glasses and contacts forever!

Traveling to see the world is fun but it is more fun if you can see it with a crystal clear vision. Not seeing clearly somehow defeats the reason why you travel: to enjoy the sceneries and to see diverse cultures. Enjoy every detail of life and put a pin to your next travel destination.

“Eye” Can Relax

In this age of technology, our eyes are glued to the screens of our smart phones or desktops 24/7. Long exposure to gadgets can lead to different eye disorders which is why our eyes also need some time to rest.

In order to maintain the optimum health for your eyes, here are some exercises that can help them relax to prevent any eye problems in the future:

Woman Covering Her Eyes

  1. Palming

    This method is the simplest exercise that can be done anywhere. Even if you are just sitting in your work desk, you can just simply close your eyes and cover them with your palms. Gently apply very light pressure while you take deep and slow breaths. It is a good workout to your eyes for it gives them some time to rest from all lights in the environment.

    Eyes Shifting

  2. Shifting

    Another easy workout is shifting your eyes to different directions. It can be done even with your eyes closed. Just simply look to the right corner and gently shift your eyes to the left corner. You can also do this by looking upward and gently changing the direction downward.


  3. Blinking

    Although we blink constantly, it is considered as a good eye exercise. Simply blink your eyes faster than you normally would. You can also practice blinking and opening your eyes slowly which can help flex the eye muscle.

  4. FocusingAs the name implies, just simply focus your sight to three directions: near, middle and far. Firstly, spot an object near to you. After sometime, change your focus to another object farther than the first one. Lastly, focus on the farthest object. Do this as long as you want to strengthen your eye muscles.

  5. Napping

    One of the best relaxations for your eyes is taking them for a quick nap. Especially if you face a computer screen every day, you should provide at least a 20-minute break for them. An additional exercise is to stare at blank or green walls, for it is said that the color green helps our minds relax.

These simple exercises do not serve as a cure to existing disorders such as nearsightedness and farsightedness. It just merely helps your eyes to calm down and unwind even for a short time.

Dedicating at least 10 minutes of eye exercise everyday would be a good habit especially when we cannot escape the reality that smart phones and desktop are now a part of our lives.

Contact Lenses

6 Risks of Long-Term Contact Lenses Use

Contact lenses are medical devices worn directly on the corneas of the eyes for vision correction or aesthetics purposes. Although useful, they can put the eyes at risk of infections and inflammation, especially when used for an extended period of time. This is because the lenses cover the entire corneas, reducing the amount of oxygen that reaches the eyes from the environment.

Several risks of prolonged wearing of contact lenses include:

Dry Eye Syndrome

1. Dry Eye Syndrome

Dry eye syndrome (keratoconjunctivitis sicca) is caused by insufficient or poor quality tears. Its symptoms include burning or stinging sensation, sandy or gritty feeling, sore eyes, light sensitivity, blurry vision; and eye itchiness, tiredness, dryness, and redness. Inadequate supply of oxygen reduces the tears produced by the eyes so if you have borderline dry eye syndrome, you may feel especially uncomfortable with your contacts on. If you wear contacts for too long, the protein deposits also build-up, which can make your eyes feel even drier.



Pink Eye

2. Pink Eye

Bacterial infection from contact lenses can lead to pink eye (conjunctivitis), an inflammation or swelling of the conjunctiva. Symptoms of conjunctivitis include pink discoloration to the whites of eyes, swollen eyelids, itching or burning sensation, discharge or excessive tearing, and increased sensitivity to light.




Corneal Ulcer 3. Corneal Ulcer

Corneal ulcer (microbial keratitis) results from the rubbing of contact lenses against the eyes’ surface, creating open sores in the outer layer of the corneas that may enable bacteria to penetrate the eyes. Corneal ulcer causes pain and redness, mild to severe eye discharge, and blurry vision.




4. Corneal ScarringCorneal Scar

Corneal scars develop when contact lens cause abrasions or injury to the Bowman’s membrane (smooth and nonregenerating layer between the superficial epithelium and the stroma) and the stromal layers. Scar can also form when the corneal ulcer penetrates the Bowman’s and the stromal layer. Corneal scarring can lead to impaired vision.






Vision Loss

5. Vision Loss

Corneal ulcer scarring can lead to permanent vision loss, especially if the ulcer is centrally located in the cornea and is deep and invasive. Vision loss after corneal ulcer occurred more frequently with extended-wear soft contact lenses compared with extended-wear silicone hydrogel contact lenses.




Abnormal blood vessel growth

6. Abnormal blood vessel growth

Wearing contact lenses for too many hours or too many years can cause abnormal blood vessel growth in the cornea (corneal neovascularization). Blood vessels normally circle the cornea at the limbus or the border of the cornea and the sclera (white part of the eye). Any growth beyond this point hampers your vision.




Risks of prolonged contact lenses use differ for each person. If you decide to use them, always keep them clean and stored properly, follow your lens-wearing schedules, and set appointments with your eye doctor for follow-up care. Also, make sure to have an up-to-date pair of eyeglasses to give your eyes a break.

For permanent and long-term solution to vision problems, consider getting LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis), which is the most advanced type of vision correction that uses laser energy to reshape the cornea and correct refractive errors, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
