Selection Of Swimming Goggles For Minus Eyes?
For example, I want to buy swimming goggles with minus lenses, my minus is 7.5.
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Minus eye, or in medical language is also called myopia, is a condition where a person is limited in their far vision because in the process of seeing it, the image that should fall on the retina, instead falls in front of the retina. And this condition, although the exact cause cannot be determined, usually increases the risk in those who:
Have a parent or family history of the same disorder
Often dealing with the monitor screen
Often reads with a distance that is not ideal or less than 30 cm between the eye and the object of reading
To treat this condition, one of the treatments is with minus glasses. Regarding your question, if there is no right choice of glasses, it would be better to use a lower minus than a higher one. This is because minus eyes that use lenses with higher strength can cause dizziness, and can make eye minus increases. Apart from that, with a minus that has reached 7.5, we also recommend that you consider the LASIK procedure.
Meanwhile, you should continue to have your eyes checked regularly, and adopt a healthy lifestyle by not smoking and increasing consumption of vegetables and fruits, especially those containing vitamin A. Don't forget not to use your eyes to work in front of a screen for more than two hours. Take a break every two hours with a long look before returning to work.
So, hopefully this is useful.
