Top 7 Tips To Treat Eye Conditions Using Vision Therapy

By: Raymond Lee Geok Seng

Unfortunately, few people have ever heard of vision therapy. It is the best kept secret in eye care. The few people who know anything about it think it is the Bates Method. But Bates is outdated. This method only focus on the eye muscles. Today, we know, in addition, vision therapy works by retraining the way the brain processes visual imagery. It is more like visual biofeedback than vision callisthenics. Using today's methods, we get better, more permanent results than Bates did. Today's vision therapy helps treat many vision-impairing eye conditions. Here are some of the tips you can consider to treat your eye conditions.

1. Traumatic Brain Injury

Some people who sustain head injuries in auto or other accidents largely recover, except that they experience blurred or double vision. They are often told they have to live with it, but vision therapy can often help them see better.

2. Athletic Performance

Keep your eye on the ball is standard advice in baseball, basketball, tennis, volleyball and many other sports. The problem is that sometimes even world-class athletes can't do it well enough to remain competitive. With the help of vision therapy, they can. In a study, vision therapy was conducted on a group of professional tennis players. Lights were flashed at them and time how long it takes them to respond. At first it may take them one-tenth a second. But after a while, they start responding in one one-hundredth of a second, ten times faster. The difference between a tenth and a hundredth of a second may not sound like much, but when you are playing a professional tennis, it is the difference between seeing the ball leave your opponent's racquet and not seeing it until it is already on your side of the court.

3. Balance

Good vision is critical for good balance because vision, our dominant sense, provides the brain with a great deal of information about the body's position. A group of 20 male and female students were tested on their balance and then trained them in Eyerobics, a visual-skills training program that uses vision therapy exercises to improve depth perception, peripheral vision, reaction time and spatial judgement. After Eyerobics training, the researchers retested the participant's balance and found significant improvement.

4. Crossed Eyes, Lazy Eyes And Binocular Disorder

In addition to causing cosmetic problems ' the eyes look funny' these disorders interfere with reading and close-focus work and may lead to blindness of the weaker eye. They are also surprisingly common. According to a report in the Journal of the American Optometric Association, about 5 percent of schoolchildren have strabismic eyes, and up to 8 percent have some degree of amblyopia. Each year in United States, the National Society to Prevent Blindness estimates 127,000 new diagnoses of amblyopia. Six months of vision therapy produces substantial, long-lasting improvements of these conditions in about 75 percent of cases.

5. Learning Disabilities

Many children diagnosed with learning disabilities or dyslexia does not really have them. They often have learning-related vision problems, and vision therapy can help them – if they are diagnosed and treated by a behavioural optometrist. Unfortunately, many are not. In a study, with three children, two age eight and one ten, who had severe problems with reading. One had been diagnosed as dyslexic. After two months of vision therapy, the children’s reading abilities improved dramatically

6. Focusing Problems

Normal eyes hold objects in focus and automatically refocus when they shift from one object to another that is closer or farther away. People with focusing problems cannot do this, and their constant struggle to keep their eyes focused leads to chronic eyes stress that often causes headaches, fatigue, double or blurry vision and a burning sensation in the eyes. In a study, 96 people with focusing problems were treated with vision therapy. Fifty-three percent were cured. Symptoms were significantly reduced, though not eliminated, in 43 percent. Only 4 percent showed no benefit.

7. Jerking Eye

This condition interferes with smooth eye movement, causing the eyes to jerk from point to point. It impairs reading ability and anything else that requires fluid eye movements. Vision therapy usually can cure ocular-motor problems.

Information on Eye Health and Eye Disease Treatment

By: Cynthia Jones

Without eyesight we are deprived of the ability to perform many activities. Reading and driving is impossible while functioning in general becomes much more difficult. To maintain the health of your eyes you need to understand a bit about how they function. Eye care lab dot com provides information on eyes, eye diseases, and treatments for eye disease.

Eyes are an amazing structure

The eye can be compared to a working camera complete with shutter, lenses and focusing mechanisms. The pupil controls the amount of light that is let into the retina. The pupil has the ability to open and close like a shutter. The light that is let in sends and upside down image to the retina, which is reinterpreted by the brain as right side up. In essence the retina can be compared to film upon which an image is registered.

Anatomically the structure of the eye is very complex. Some of the components of the eye hold fluids such as tears and blood, which help nourish and lubricate the eye tissues. The muscles of the eye help the iris and pupil to move and focus. The eyelids and the epithelium of the cornea help protect the eye from injury. There are also sensors in the eye that send information to the brain to indicate sensations like pain.

Eye problems

The best cure for blindness is prevention. Part of a healthy eye care regime is to make regular visits to the eye doctor to have your eyes checked for common problems. Regular eye exams can help determine if your vision needs correcting or reveal the cause of any vision problems. With early detection many eye diseases, including age related vision problems can be treated and prevented.

It is quite common for people to suffer from refractive errors of the eyes. These are simply known as farsightedness or nearsightedness. Farsighted people can’t see up close and nearsighted individuals can’t see far away.

The arson that a shortsighted person can’t see objects far away is because the lens in the eye focuses only on the sharpest image in front of the retina instead of it. This vision problem is easily corrected by placing a concave lens in front the eye. Conversely if a person is long sighted they can’t see objects up close. This is because the lens of the eyes can only focus on the sharpest image behind the retina instead on it. This is corrected by placing a convex lens in front of the eye.

Farsightedness or nearsightedness is common but there are also much more complex refractive disorders such as astigmatism. The eyes can also be afflicted by disorders such as conjunctivitis (pink eye), blepharitis, allergies diabetic retinopathy and other conditions. Cataracts and glaucoma are prevalent all over the world.

Treatment of eye problems

It is crucial that these types of diseases and visual errors be treated. In this eye care resource you will find the information you need to take better care of your eyes including articles on contact lenses, intraocular lenses, laser surgery, corneal reshaping, intraocular lenses and orthokeratology This website includes a detailed section on laser-assisted vision correcting procedures that involve the use of the newer more sophisticated excimer lasers. These include procedures such as keratoplasty, photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), lasek eye surgery and lasik eye surgery.

It is hoped that this information will help you to better take care of your eyes so you can keep your eyesight to the end of your life.

About the Author:
Cynthia Jones is doing research on Eye Care Treatments for quite some time. She has written a number of articles on Eye Care Information, and has shared her findings through TV talks.

A Swift Revolution

THE story of teen music sensation Taylor Swift's rise to stardom is well worth documenting, writes Subhadran Devan.

Young Nashville songwriter Taylor Swift held the No 1 spot on to the US Billboard Country Album Chart for 17 weeks with her second album, Fearless.

According to a New York Times report, only five other solo female artistes have had albums with 11 or more weeks at the top spot in the five-decade history of Billboard's chart: Alanis Morissette, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Carole King and Judy Garland.

Grammy-nominated Swift's Fearless is all about teenage love and heartbreak. The unique ingredient is that the 20-year-old singer- songwriter keeps the real names intact in the lyrics.

Swift, whose maternal grandmother was an opera singer, is not just country. She has crossed over to pop and hosted the MTV Video Music Awards preshow last year.

And she didn't do this overnight. When tweens are still being tweens, the artiste best known for Teardrops On My Guitar, Tim McGraw and now Love Story, stated in a Universal Music release that she became obsessed with music when "I was six".

"I brought my first LeAnn Rimes album and I was hooked. Aged 10 was when I realised that I didn't have to be what my Dad was. I'd just assumed that because he was a stockbroker, then that's what I would do."

When she was 11, Swift begged her parents to take her to Nashville because she'd seen a TV special on Shania Twain and Faith Hill which said that they made it in the music industry because they went to Nashville.

"I was the most obnoxious kid for about a year, begging every day. So, finally my mum took my brother and I to Nashville for spring break. I walked into all the record labels with my demo CD with me singing karaoke songs, and said, "Hey, I'm Taylor, I'm 11, I want a record deal. Call me.'

"She realised that there were thousands of people just like her.

"That's when I discovered songwriting and playing the guitar."

Before she started high school she was already been singing at coffee shops and minor league baseball games.

She hit the teen music scene with her first single, Tim McGraw while her third single, Teardrops On My Guitar, on her first album, became a crossover hit, peaking at No. 13 on the US Billboard Hot 100 last year.

The country music breakthrough artiste has a New Age marketing strategy. Once the songs are finished Swift used the online social networks - MySpace, Facebook, Twitter - to stay connected with her fans. She also blogs and posts her own videos of her travels online.

Taylor Swift told Universal Music (which distributes her albums) that there were times where she had to work a bit harder to gain respect when she started out because she was only 14.

"I was the youngest person ever signed to a writer's deal.

"I took it very seriously. Every single day at school, I would be studying but thinking about 10 to 15 different ideas to bring to my writing sessions that day. I was really intense about it."

Nashville, says Swift, is focused on the songwriters. "There's New York, then L.A, and then Nashville. About 80 per cent of the artistes depend on those songwriters for their material, for their hit songs. It's so important to this town to have great songwriters."

She snagged a record deal by doing a showcase, "just me and my guitar", for all the record labels at a legendary songwriter's place in Nashville called the Bluebird Cafe.

Afterwards, she was contacted by some major labels but she soon found out they weren't keen on her writing the whole record.

One guy, Scott Borchetta, told her he didn't have a record label then but she became one of his first artistes to be signed on.

Swift, who often plays a Swarovski crystal-encrusted guitar, says she writes her music late at night, and always keeps a pen and notepad by the bed. "I've done this before where I say, `Oh, I'll remember it tomorrow, I'm really comfortable and I don't wanna get out of bed!' But then I always forget it the next morning."

Swift says she looks up to the Dixie Chicks because they play their own instruments, and Shania Twain because she wasn't afraid to "run around on stage, break a sweat and get the crowd going crazy".

"I can listen to a CD as much as I like at home, but watching a performance is not really about hearing the song as much as it's about seeing how it can be interpreted live into a different light, and seeing how that artist can paint a new picture for me to think of when I hear that song."

Swift's unique performance style includes wearing lots of bracelets that she would later toss out to fans.

She says as a songwriter, her favourite is always the last one she wrote. The single, Love Story, is "kind of based on Romeo & Juliet" with a modern twist. "It's got a really cool ending, a happy ending rather than a sad ending. I'm really proud of it."

Swift loves all the travelling fame has brought her. "Travelling is one of my favourite things to do. I live on a tour bus now, it's crazy, and so that's really interesting." You can visit Swift's own Youtube channel to check out her online blog of her life on the bus.

Taylor Swift is almost the only young one today making waves on the Billboard charts. She is also becoming a brand in the US with her own line of Taylor Swift dolls and is the face of l.e.i. clothing brand, carried exclusively at Wal-Mart.

The blonde teen has made cameo appearances in the Hannah Montana film and the Jonas Brothers 3D concert offering. "My favourite show ever is Grey's Anatomy. I will never stop loving it, ever. If I was offered a guest spot on that, my life would be complete."

Conditions of the Human Eye

By: Sam McKenzy

Taking care of your eyes is very important because if you don't then once of the most important senses of the human body can be compromised. However having less than perfect vision is not always because of your eyes being damaged but is part of the growth process of the human body.

Before we begin we should probably clear up the misunderstandings and myths that have been implanted into our minds since children. You know when you were playing video games, watching the television on Saturday mornings, or from using your computer for hours at a time and your parents go in and start nagging at you? The most common argument they bring up is that it will ruin your eyes. That is a complete lie that they have been telling you since childhood and if you have children of your own, you should either stop or not tell them that.

Another myth is that reading books at night or watching the television at night can also ruin your eyes. This is also not true and has yet to be scientifically proven. However because of your eyes not getting enough light it may strain your eyes but in no way will it ruin your vision.
So what exactly is the reason for the less than 20/20 vision? Most likely is the shape of your eye. For people who have a natural 20/20 vision, their eyes are perfectly shaped like a ball. People who have less than perfect eyes are because their eyes aren't shaped round but more oval like.

Nearsightedness is what most teenagers have who need to wear contacts or glasses. Nearsightedness is when your eyes can not properly focus on objects that are far away which can be a big problem as it conflicts with some activities such as enjoying a movie at the theaters or even to everyday actions such as driving. What causes nearsightedness is when their eyes are a little longer than usual. Because of the extra length it causes the light to hit the retina indirectly that it blurs the person's vision.

The opposite of nearsightedness is farsightedness. And as it's opposite instead of the eye being longer it is shorter than normal. Because of this reduced distance the light coming into your eye doesn't hit the retina in your eye but instead hits behind it and therefore causes the blurring vision experienced by people with farsightedness. However many newborn children are born with nearsightedness and can't even recognize their parents visual features but with time most of them outgrow the condition.

Another vision condition is known as astigmatism and that is when your cornea isn't perfectly round. For people with this condition they can't see perfectly without the assistance of contacts or glasses.

Though glasses and contacts are a solution many people feel that it is inadequate and go under the table to correct their vision. Once a person has their eyes fully grown which is some time after they are 18 years old they can choose to have surgery on their eyes to make a much more permanent fix.

What to Do Before Submitting To Article Directories

To all writers and non-writers out there, now is the time to start digging up those creative writing skills back.

With modern communication technology comes the popularity of information-based marketing, which is one of the oldest and most effective techniques in getting targeted prospects to sites and converting them into buyers. This is why article writing, submissions and publications are also getting popular.

There are already many tools that people can use to make the process of distributing their articles more easily. Though this is invaluable in getting the contents more exposure, which is only half of the story.

Let us take a look first at the common mistakes that some people make before submitting their contents to article directories:

1. Confusing the reason to promote the articles with the reason to write them.

In article writing, there are three key benefits why you are promoting them; branding, lead generation and promotion, which are all part of your optimization efforts.

But there is only one reason why you write an article, and that is to inform your audience. If the article is not focused on this primary and most important purpose, it will fail to achieve the three promotion benefits because no one will be interested in reading them.

You need to figure out first how to get people to read what is in your article, then make them click on your resource box. You can achieve this by producing better contents.

2. Failing to maximize the promotional opportunities of article marketing.

You may know already that your articles can help you generate additional links back to your site. But do you know that you can get more visitors and better search engine results from that same articles?

Mention keywords at strategic places. Just be sure not to overdo them. Some are even using anchor texts which is also an effective method. But it is important to know that majority of the directories are not able to support this.

Remember that is not only about the links back to your site. Part of doing well in your article marketing is getting picked up by publishers with a large number of audiences and gaining the ability of leveraging other brands because of the quality of your work. Better search engine results also are great benefits.

But these things do not put much money in your pocket. There are other factors that can turn your article marketing efforts into an opportunity that can boost your earnings. Not just increase the number of visitors to your site.

Start out with a plan and see to it that your article will serve the function that you intended it to have.

3. Publishing content that does not help your readers.

Maybe in the process of writing articles, you are thinking that all that is you wanted is links back to your site. And any visitors it can generate are fine.

Guess what? Not all article banks and directories are going to accept your content automatically. Oftentimes, they have some guidelines and specifications on the articles that they are accepting.

You can double the number of sites you can submit to by writing articles that the directories want to share with other people. All it takes is one publisher with a hundred thousand readers to increase your potential audience overnight.

Write the articles that publishers want in their publications if you want your article marketing to work the most effective way for you. This also means you have to obey the standard guidelines, spell checks, researching on a good topic and even hiring a writer to produce a good content on your behalf.

In the end, it is all really a matter of choice on your part. You can start getting a little exposure from increased links back but on a very basic level. Or enjoy massive exposure from a little extra time making quality contents.

It will be your choice. You may not be aware of the fact that an article submitted on directories is not meant to have the same level of exposure as highly-targeted content ones geared on a narrow group of people.

Learn the difference between these two and it will surely help you know what kinds of articles to write and to submit.
