DR. AGENMONMEN CELEBRATES BIRTHDAY

It is traditional for Haven Opticals and Dental Clinic to celebrate birthdays, wedding anniversaries of both her staff and customers, because, these are moments the company cherishes so much, and over the years, the company has seized such occasions to strengthen inter-personal relationships between its employees and build a robust customer relationship. It is also an occasion when the company present gift items to her customers, especially those of them who show up at the clinic during such commemorations.

This time around, the employees of Haven Optical and Dental Clinic celebrated their very own Medical Director, Dr. Uche Agenmonmen as she marked yet another milestone in her life on her birthday, which was on April 5, 2019. Some patients of the clinic, who were present at the time of the celebration, joined in the cutting of the cake, which they all had a piece of. After the cutting of the cake, the members of staff of the company and the customers all took a group photograph.

The occasion was fun-filled and one of cheer giving to the celebrant. Dr. Ebele who spoke on behalf of the rest of the staff, wished her many happy returns and prayed for God’s guidance as she continue to provide exemplary leadership that will see the company grow from height to height in the years ahead.

The medical director in her response, said, “I am quite pleased to have the present crop of dedicated staff working for me and hope that every one of you continue to offer your best as you have always done, to strengthen our company and enable her attain greater height. She thanked everyone present for helping to make her day a delightful one and stated that the company will continue to celebrate with its members of staff and customers whenever they have an important anniversary.

DEBUNKING MYTHS/MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT GLASSES:

There are a couple of views many adhere to tenaciously with respect to spectacle wear, while some on the other hand seek clarifications to these myths. But what are these blurry sets of thesis, and how true are they?

 

  • The Disease Concept:

Are refractive errors communicable? The answer is No; they aren’t. Myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism cannot be transmitted physically from person to person, as they are not diseases; neither do they have disease vectors. They are simply lapses in the way light rays bend to reach the eye for us to perceive images clearly. Such errors can be compensated for with appropriate corrective lenses.

 

  • Age Limitation:

No one is too young to have a refractive error. As such, no one is too young to wear glasses (corrective or protective), provided one has a visual system which is either less optimally functional or in need of ocular protective/preventive aid.

 

  • Are All Sunglasses dark shades?

Sunglasses aren’t just dark shades as some perceive, especially sunglasses with UV blocking agents. This set of sunglasses serve a whole lot of preventive functions to the eye, blocking off harmful Ultraviolet rays which cause cataracts and retinal degenerations that could lead to severe visual impairment or even total vision loss. Any pair of sunglasses void of this protective element should NEVER be worn, as such could cause more harm to the eye than good.

 

  • Change in Eye Configuration:

Spectacle wear doesn’t make one’s eye sink inwards or bulge out in any way really. Diverging lenses minify images while looking through them; and converging lenses on the other hand magnify images. So, what on-viewers see really (which makes them make this assumption) is a function of the lens’ optical property, not a change in the configuration of the eyes.

 

  • The Myth of Deterioration of Vision with Continual Spectacle Wear:

From about 40 years and above, a condition called Presbyopia sets in. This is observed as a difficulty in reading near prints with one’s distant spectacle correction in place, due to a gradual loss of elasticity of the crystalline lens in the eye. This is compensated for with the use of lens ‘‘Adds’’; and with increase in age, the ‘‘Adds’’ increase. Likewise, in high myopia, the length of the eyeball keeps increasing, requiring higher corrective lens powers. So, basically, it is the structures in the eyes that are changing. Lenses don’t cause any of these changes or deterioration in vision in any wise.

 

  • The Eye Exercise Myth:

Can regular eye exercises keep one from needing glasses? No! They can’t. While eye exercises can help improve the functionality of the eye muscles, vision relies on the shape of the eyes and the health of the eye tissues, none of which can be appreciably altered with eye exercises.

 

  • The Theory of Reading in Dim Illumination:

Reading in dim illumination cannot worsen one’s vision. One will only end up straining one’s eyes and at some point could even attain dark adaptation. However, after such dark adaptation over a long period of time, one must not expose oneself immediately to a very bright light source, as it could bring about bleaching of the retina. The use of sunglasses, Polaroid lenses or adaptive lenses with such protective functions is recommended after such dark adaptation.

 

  • The ‘Damaging Effect’ of Wearing Wrong Prescriptions:

When one wears a wrong prescription, one could have headaches, dizziness, blurred vision or even double vision (diplopia). But these presentations would eventually fade out on discontinuation of such wrong prescriptions and the administration of the correct/appropriate spectacle prescriptions. So, wrong prescriptions do not damage the eyes as is widely thought. They bring about discomforts, which of course can be eliminated with the proper corrections in place.

 

  • The Myth of Not Looking Good With Glasses:

Days are gone when eye wears had stereotypic presentations, lacking variety. In our present day, different brands and classes of frames and lenses exist to suit diverse persons, physiques, styles, occasions and purposes; and as such, you can find glasses that add class and sophistication to your look. You always can.

PREVENT AND DELAY CATARACTS NATURALLY:

When you think about your favourite sights, what images do you see? The sunset from your porch, the radiant smiles of your children and grand children, the glimmer in your partner’s eyes as you dance together. Now, consider what it would be like if those crystal clear images were suddenly blurry, covered in a haze that dulls your world. Such is life with cataracts, a degenerative eye disease that clouds vision and may eventually lead to blindness.

Here are some recommendations for delaying and even preventing cataracts.

* Taste the rainbow. maintain a balanced diet, rich in antioxidants and vitamin C and E. consider incorporating these eye healthy foods and take multivitamins to ensure that you are always getting adequate nutrients, even if your diet gets a little off track.

* Maintain a healthy weight, diabetes and obesity can lead to cataracts. Reduce your risk by exercising regularly and eating healthy portions.

* Moderate your vices. Smoking and excessive alcohol can also contribute to the cause of cataracts. Limit your alcohol consumption and nix the cigarettes.

* Protect your eyes from the sun. Shield your eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays by wearing sunglasses with UV protection and wide brim hats.

Get an eye examination every year. A comprehensive eye examination will not only help detect early signs of cataracts but will also check for age related macular degeneration, glaucoma and other vision problems. Schedule your appointment today with HAVEN OPTICALS LTD.
