Does Age Matter? Correcting Your Vision With LASIK Eye Surgery

By , July 29, 2013 11:47 pm

There are certain conditions that might preclude LASIK in case of a particular patient. Age is one such factor taken into account when determining whether a patient is a viable LASIK candidate or not.

lasik, laser eye surgery, eye surgery, lasek, eye, vision

It’s true that LASIK can eliminate a person’s dependency on eyeglasses and contact lenses. It can correct a variety of refractive errors, such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. However, LASIK surgery is not for everyone. There are certain conditions that might preclude LASIK in case of a particular patient. Age is one such factor taken into account when determining whether a patient is a viable LASIK candidate or not.

It is a known fact that people experience a constant change in vision throughout adolescence and sometimes well until the mid to late 20s. That is, the refraction stabilizes typically around the age of 18. For myopic people, the benchmark is somewhere between the mid to late 20s. Undergoing LASIK prior to that age is nothing but a futile attempt to achieve enhanced visual acuity, since the patient will nevertheless require another surgery when the prescription stabilizes.

A preoperative examination conducted prior to the age of 18 might result in incorrect measurements, and consequently, an appropriate correction via LASIK. Patients suffering from a higher degree of myopia or astigmatism should defer the surgery a wee bit longer than others ?normally until the age of 21 or so. In essence, you must have had a stable prescription for at least two years, and then only you should plan to undergo LASIK surgery. If you wish to go for custom LASIK, the minimum age is the same as that for conventional LASIK.

There is no upper age limit for LASIK surgery. Even a 50 or 60 year old person may opt for LASIK. The point is that LASIK can very well correct the refractive error of a myopic patient at any stage of the patient’s life, provided the patient’s eyes are otherwise healthy. That is, LASIK will impart clear distant vision to any person irrespective of the age. However, age related deterioration of the vision may still occur. For instance, almost every person suffers from presbyopia (or short arm syndrome) beyond the age of 40. Presbyopia entails the loss of accommodation power of the lens. Hence, people typically require reading glasses after the age of 40.

If you find a LASIK surgeon that you are confident about you will be able to find more information about LASIK laser eye surgery.

Common Forms of Treatment for Appendicitis

Appendicitis is considered to be a surgical illness. Due to its severe character, the treatment for appendicitis often involves surgical intervention. Judging by the speed of development and the gravity of the illness, appendicitis can be either acute or chronic.

treatment for appendicitis, appendicitis.

Appendicitis is considered to be a surgical illness. Due to its severe character, the treatment for appendicitis often involves surgical intervention. Judging by the speed of development and the gravity of the illness, appendicitis can be either acute or chronic. Acute appendicitis evolves very fast and can lead to complications. Chronic appendicitis is less serious and slower to develop. Although there are other options, the safest treatment for appendicitis is considered to be surgery.

Appendicitis occurs due to bacterial infection and obstruction of the vermiform appendix, a tube-shaped extension of the large intestine (the colon). The appendix is usually blocked by calculus or feces, causing it to swell. However, in some cases, the enlargement of the lymph nodes is responsible for the inappropriate activity of the appendix. Due to bacterial infection (also very common in appendicitis), the lymph nodes begin to swell and press against the walls of the appendix, causing it to block. The local blood circulation is also perturbed, causing the death of the appendix. The swelling of the appendix and bacterial infections can lead to serious complications, such as gangrene, sepsis and perforation of the appendix. The best option available in the treatment for appendicitis when confronted with a seriously damaged appendix is to surgically remove it from the body. The appendix doesn’t have a vital role inside the organism and its absence doesn’t affect the normal activity of the body.

The surgical treatment for appendicitis consists of a procedure called appendectomy. In uncomplicated forms of appendicitis, appendectomy is a simple surgical intervention. Most patients respond well to the surgical treatment for appendicitis and they fully recover within a few weeks after the operation. However, if the treatment for appendicitis is delayed, the chances of recovery are considerably diminished.

Appendicitis affects about 6-7 percent of the population in the United States and Europe. However, statistics indicate that in the last years the number of people diagnosed with appendicitis has considerably decreased. The development of appendicitis is facilitated by inappropriate diet. A healthy lifestyle and a diet rich in fibers can be useful in the prevention of appendicitis. Appendicitis can be developed by anyone, at any age. However, acute forms of the illness mostly occur in children and teenagers (ages 3-15) and also in older patients (ages over 50).

Despite the medical advance and the abundance of medications available nowadays, the recommended treatment for appendicitis remains appendectomy. Although in uncomplicated cases of the illness the doctors might prescribe antibiotics, the safest treatment for appendicitis is still considered to be surgery. The fact is that antibiotics and other medications can’t unblock the appendix without causing any internal damage and for this reason the most reasonable form of treatment for appendicitis is surgical intervention. If the presence of the illness is discovered in time, appendectomy is the safest option available today in the treatment for appendicitis.

Effects-of-Mangosteen-on-RSD

By , July 24, 2013 1:26 am

learn how to fight RSD! learn the steps taken to eliminate this deliberating disease….

reflex sympathetic dystrophy, rsd, reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome, rsds, reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome association of america, rsdsa

In all the studies of Mangosteen and Xantones I could not find one report on how it helps RSD! What I did find was a bunch of testimonies about how it has helped people with this debilitating disease find relief! I did find reports on inflammation and IBS along with relief to some cancers like breast cancer, colon cancer and a few others. The American cancer institute is studying the mangosteen fruit with wide eyes! This fruit has studies all the way back to the early 1800,s.

Xango was the first to market this fruit. I do have people that have RSD and they have reduced in some cases removed Pain meds from their daily routine! I would like to point out I have seen this with my own 2 eyes! To say this would cure anything would be a lie! I have no way to prove that to you. To say it helps people would be an understatement as for what I have seen it do for people!

At this point I would like to tell you a bit about me ?I am Ken Boyer I have a passion for helping people. I did not get into this business to make money! I got in it to help people feel better and have a better quality of life. Heck I am not a salesman nor am I a doctor or a research type person!

I do have or should I say did have problems with my hands. You see I firmly believe that the arthritis was taking over and work was becoming more difficult! Hand movement was being cut down and the pain and swelling was too much to bare!
One day about 3 years ago I had to find out how the immune system worked I can not tell you why I just found it consuming my free time and for 3 years I did a lot of research! I found out why after the second year! I found that there are many things that will attack the immune system and A.I.D.S. is the worst of the bunch! Things like Lupus and Muscular dystrophy and R.S.D.,Arthritis, even I.B.S. can be linked to the immune system!

Most all disease’s can be linked directly to an attack on the immune system whether you want to call it the auto Immune system or the immune system It is your automatic defense system to aid you in the fight of even colds or flue!
That was another way it has helped me the first year in many I did not take mega doses of antibiotics! But for a min let’s get back to Arthritis. Since this happened to me I got to tell you what excited me so much to write you today! My hands are back to normal! I can pull on wrenches with no pain! What a blessing! And the money I make well that is a blessing to but read on to see my heart on this matter.
My intention today is not to just spit out a bunch of crap but to inform you about the mangosteen fruit.

The FdA has us say that there is no proof that any of our claims HAVE BEEN PROVEN and legally they are right and just to do so. I have no scientific proof of my own to back up what science is now studying the Mangosteen fruit is one of the best kept secrets in the world today!(go to pub med and look up mangosteen and Xanthones www.pubmed.com ) After all it has been around for centuries and I dare say since the beginning of time! Am I excited about this YOU BET I AM! I am seeing testimonies right and left from what this drink is doing for people. People with arthritis and IBS and a host of Lupus patients getting relief. You would be excited to if you found something that people don’t know about and then they take it and you can say wow what a change in your life!!! I am proud to say I am a Xango dist. But not for the reason you would think. The money that will be made comes as a blessing. At first you don’t make much so the driving force would not be the money it would have to be the benefits of helping people. That is what I tell everyone that either comes in as a business or as a customer.
I would run around like a chicken with my head cut off delivering to each person but there is a better way and that is to get them to auto ship the Xango to there home. I would suggest starting off with at least 5 cases! And here is why once you try the product for yourself you will find you can not keep your mouth shut about how it has helped you and each person knows about 10 people that it would help! So you show them how it has helped you and they begin to buy it first from you then through auto ship! Xango will find it’s self all over the globe!

It has already begun!

I said I was passionate about helping people and now you can see without a doubt I am telling you the truth about how it has helped me and many more like me. I would now like to help you!

Disposable Lenses Can Cause A Contact Lens Eye Infection

There have been many various eye infection issues with contact lenses in the recent years; sometimes it is blamed on specific products, but mostly it is lack of good hygiene. There are some major issues that specifically have to do with people who wear soft contact lenses. Those people are definitely at a heightened risk for a serious contact lens eye infection.

There have been many various eye infection issues with contact lenses in the recent years; sometimes it is blamed on specific products, but mostly it is lack of good hygiene. There are some major issues that specifically have to do with people who wear soft contact lenses. Those people are definitely at a heightened risk for a serious contact lens eye infection.

One specific such infection is called Fusarium Kerititis. Although this contact lens eye infection is uncommon, it is definitely a cause for concern. The major symptoms of this particular infection involving contact lens wearers include, but are not limited to: blurred vision, redness, pain and extreme tearing or discharge. It can be so serious that the infection could cause total vision loss if not immediately treated.

Problem-Solving

If you wear contact lenses and begin feeling eye discomfort, remove your lenses. If you flush them but continue feeling pain, or see signs of an infection involving your contact lens usage, go to an eye doctor right away. If you have a contact lens eye infection, you do not want to delay treatment because eye infections are significant.

People who wear disposable daily lenses seem to have lowest risk of contact lens eye infection. However, anyone using lenses has a higher risk of getting an eye infection if they leave their lenses in when they go to bed, do not disinfect their storage cases, do not wash their hands before handling the contact lenses, or smoke.

Strangely, the risk of a contact lens eye infection was three times more likely when the lenses were purchased over the Internet. In order to avoid a contact lens eye infection, it is very important to know where your lenses have been. The ones sold on the Internet are typically mishandled, which can be a greater risk for this particular type of dangerous infection. It is recommended to purchase the lenses from at least a well-known store where a contact lens eye infection is less likely.

Reportedly, there is now a material called a sulfoxide hydrogel polymer that prevents a contact lens eye infection through enhancing the level of water in the eye and decreasing a problematic protein buildup. They claim it will enable contact lenses to be more comfortable when worn for long periods of time and successfully prevent bacterial buildup in the eye. It is the bacterial buildup that can lead to a contact lens eye infection.

Eliminating Scalp Eczema

Eczema, an itchy inflammation of the skin, effects many people in different forms, with one of the most common being scalp eczema.

The scalp is vulnerable because the skin of the scalp is different than skin elsewhere on the body. The scalp has a very rich supply of grease from the sebaceous glands as well as carrying follicles creating long hairs.

scalp eczema, eczema

Eczema, an itchy inflammation of the skin, effects many people in different forms, with one of the most common being scalp eczema.

The scalp is vulnerable because the skin of the scalp is different than skin elsewhere on the body. The scalp has a very rich supply of grease from the sebaceous glands as well as carrying follicles creating long hairs.

There are other symptoms to watch for with eczema besides itching. A person suffering from a form of eczema may also experience redness of the affected area, dry skin, lumps or blisters, and possibly signs of superficial infection such as weeping or crusty deposits.

It is important to let your medical provider know if you are suffering these symptoms and to which parts of your body, as there are several types of eczema, including atopic, allergic contact, irritant contact, discoid, seborrhoeic, and many others.

Eczema is actually a fairly common condition with atopic eczema (the “allergic?type often seen in people with allergies or asthma), affecting about 10-20 percent of school children and 3-5 percent of adults in the UK.

This number is increasing and becoming more common. The cause of this strain becoming more common may be due to an increased exposure to allergens such as house dust or environmental factors.

Now that we know what the symptoms are, how is eczema and scalp eczema treated? Treatment can consist of topical creams or ointments that are applied regularly.

Or, if the area is infected, your medical provider may prescribe antimicrobial medicines, such as antibiotics, antifungals, or antivirals. These may either be taken orally or topically.

Depending on the severity of your condition, either method has proven over time to be effective.

Although eczema or scalp eczema are conditions which can be annoying or troublesome, there is hope that the treatments can be effective and one suffering from eczema can lead a full, productive life.

Discomforting heart burn

Heart burn is what we call the discomfort/pain that is caused by the contents of the stomach as they travel up into the lower part of the esophagus, also known as the gullet. The burning sensation that is felt is due to the acidic nature of the contents of our stomach, which the gullet is not meant to withstand.

Heart burn is what we call the discomfort/pain that is caused by the contents of the stomach as they travel up into the lower part of the esophagus, also known as the gullet. The burning sensation that is felt is due to the acidic nature of the contents of our stomach, which the gullet is not meant to withstand.

The presence of the acid in the gullet causes it to become irritated and imflamed. The lower part of our esophagus is in the central chest region, which is why it is dubbed “heart burn”. It is important to note that sometimes the pain can also be felt in the upper mid section of the back; and that heartburn as nothing to do with the heart!

There is several different things that can cause heartburn with the most simple being what we eat and how we eat it. There is several different types of over the counter solutions to help relieve heartburn and indigestion.

Some factors that might contribute to heart burn are:
– pregnancy
– smoking
– eating large meals
– being overweight
– tight clothing around the waste

It is important to control heartburn, because if left untreated it can cause serious problems. Some examples of implications that can be caused by untreated heartburn are: esophagitis, esophageal, bleeding, Barrett’s esophagus, and strictures. Generally heartburn can be easily treated by antacids or medication provided by your doctor, so it’s not worth the risk.

Curing Gout Naturally

What is gout?

Gout is a form of joint inflammation that is caused by excess uric acid in the body. This happens due to poor diet, stress and not enough sleep. Gout causes a sudden and severe pain ?you’ll notice the skin over the affected joint is usually red and glossy. Often times, gout attacks come on as fast as overnight.

What is gout?

Gout is a form of joint inflammation that is caused by excess uric acid in the body. This happens due to poor diet, stress and not enough sleep. Gout causes a sudden and severe pain ?you’ll notice the skin over the affected joint is usually red and glossy. Often times, gout attacks come on as fast as overnight.

Men between 30 and 50 years old are mostly affected by gout, for pre menopausal women, the uric acid level is lower, but after age 50 uric acid tends to increase along with the increase of gout incidents.

Primarily, gout affects one and sometimes two joints at a time; more often it attacks the feet and ankles. Even without healing, the pain subsides for about a week. It takes months or years before it returns, during this time attacks become more frequent and more severe, more joints are now involved. And when gout becomes chronic, the damage to the joint is deforming and crippling.

Can gout be cured naturally?

Curing gout naturally takes time, especially if a body has accumulated toxins over a lifetime, but it will be well worth the effort. Cleansing your system of accumulated toxins promotes proper functioning of your body and puts you on the road to natural good health.

Here’s what you can do:

1. Maintain a healthy weight and diet. It is not recommended to be 30 pounds (or more) overweight, as this increases the risk of gout.

2. Loose weight if you need to. By loosing weight you reduce the pressure on weight-bearing joints and also lower uric acid levels. You don’t want to use practices that encourage rapid weight loss such as fasting as it can raise the uric acid level temporarily.

3. Avoid excessive eating of high protein foods. It is suggested for a person to eat no more than six ounces of lean meat, fish and poultry, especially those who already have gout. A high-protein food increases the blood level of uric acid.

Natural treatment for gout

Eating simple and natural food in proper combination and preparation helps your body restore and maintain vibrant health. The best diet for people with gout is 80 percent raw food or if possible organic food; these include live foods like sprouts, wheat grass, and fresh picked garden salads, and more grains, fruits and vegetables in place of protein.

The protein you need can come from non-animal food sources like legumes, such as beans, peas and lentils. Nuts are also essential and can include almonds, apricot nuts, and hazelnuts, as well as seeds such as hemp seed hearts, flax, and sesame.

A substance in some foods known as purines is a danger to gout patients and should be limited or avoided as much as possible.

The foods that contain high levels of purines include,

?Organ meats like liver, brain, kidney, tongue, tripe, and sweetbread
?Anchovies, herring and mackerel
?Meats, poultry, fish, shellfish, fish roe, scallops
?Peas, lentils, and beans though they have small amounts of purines, they should still be avoided by people suffering from gout.

Balancing the pH in a person’s body is a crucial factor in curing gout; proper pH produces a healthy immune system and internal environment. Healing of chronic illness occurs when the blood is restored to normal or slightly alkaline pH.

Exercise is another essential for curing pains caused by gout. Stretching increases and maintains a range of motion in the joints and helps to strengthen and stabilize them. This also increases the endurance and stamina of the body overall.

Reducing repetitive use of joints, and avoiding sports injuries by including proper warm-ups are also important, as it choosing suitable sports equipment for exercising.

Another way is treat gout naturally is to avoid alcoholic beverages; consuming excessive alcohol like beer inhibits the excretion of uric acid and can lead to gout. It is advised for a male to have two drinks of alcohol per day, one drink per day for women. It is best for a person who is having a gout attack to refrain from drinking alcohol.

Drinking water and is also a natural way of curing gout because it has the ability to dilute uric acid in both blood and urine.

Common Computer Workstation Mistakes and Solutions for Pain Relief ?Part 2

Common computer workstation mistakes and solutions for pain relief. Part 2.

carpal tunnel syndrome, wrist pain, neck and shoulder pain

Copyright 2006 Wendy Young

Do you spend long hours at your computer? If you are experiencing pain in your upper limbs (hand, wrist, neck, back or shouler) check out your computer workstation design. Following are four computer workstation design challenges and solutions.

Monitor Positioned Incorrect With Respect to Overhead Light and Window:

If the computer user is facing the window (or if the outside light is shining directly on the monitor) office glare may be a factor. If long fluorescent light bulbs overhead are perpendicular to the direction you are facing it can reflect in your eyes. The eyes constantly refocus throughout the day and the added glare from these two light sources can increase the risk of eyestrain.

Solution: If you have long fluorescent light bulbs overhead try to face in the same direction as the length of the bulbs so the light will reflect off the side of your body instead of in your eyes. Place your monitor perpendicular to the window so the outside light will reflect off the side of your body. Due to the design of your office you may not be able to place your monitor correctly for each of these lighting sources. You may try closing or facing the blinds upwards to reduce the outside light.

Desk Is Too Narrow for Monitor and Keyboard

If the desk is too narrow the monitor will be too close to the eyes in most instances. The uncomfortable feeling in the eyes will be immediately obvious and this will cause the computer user to move back to view the monitor comfortably. This will cause a reach to the keyboard and mouse with a great potential of creating discomfort in the shoulders.

Solution: The simple solution is to replace your large monitor with a flat panel. You will love it. Flat panels have really come down in price. Or purchase a desk that is deep enough to hold the monitor and keyboard AND allow you to work close to the keyboard without reaching and a comfortable distance from the monitor. The flat panel is probably the most economical and will create more peaceful aesthetics.

Keyboard and Mouse Too High Or Low:

This can create improper typing and mousing posture – either raising the shoulders creating tensed muscles or tilting neck down and creating bent wrists. Usually the keyboard is too high due to non-adjustable desks at standard manufacturing heights of 29″.

Solution: Raise or lower the work surface so that the shoulders are in a relaxed position. This can be done with an articulating arm/tray or an adjustable height desk. When the elbows are bent they should be slightly higher than the top of the keys on your keyboard. Keep wrists straight when typing and do not rest on pads while typing.

Mouse at a Different Level than Keyboard:

This can create an awkward reach to the mouse. The arms should be close to the body when mousing with the elbows bent 90 – 120 degrees. Do not straighten your arm when mousing because it can cause fatigue and discomfort to the shoulder blade area.

Solution: Place the mouse directly next to the keyboard preferably with no break between the keyboard and mouse. Be sure that your shoulders are in a relaxed position.
