Fisher men use sunglasses to reduce the glare of the sun, and to see the fishes clearly within the water. Above all these user and uses there is one more segment of user and uses, and that is the Military, Law Enforcement Agent and Army Air Corps, for who eye protection is must.

Here we will be talking about the eye protection of the US Military, Law Enforcement Agent and Army Air Corps. Do you know that the soldiers have the high number of risk of damaging their eyesight during the combat operations and training exercises. The studies done on the wounds in Iraq, which pointed out that the sixteen percent of casualties among soldiers, involve eye injuries. The most dangerous hazard to the eyes of the US Military & Law Enforcement Agent is the flying shrapnel from enemy weapon blasts, and other dangers to the eyes are sand, dust, debris (from helicopters, high winds, or explosive overpressure), flash fires, and lasers.

Coming to the Army Air Corps, they need protection from the dangers of high-altitude glare and this was solved by the company named Ray-Ban, who produced sunglasses especially for the Army and Navy. These Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses covered the eye socket, and had the dark lenses which were often reflective.

During the recent war with Iraq it was found through the media coverage that the US troops in the field, both marine and army use of Oakley sunglasses, goggles and boots.

    At what age do Labs generally start losing their eyesight?
    My dog Boz is 11 yrs old now. I’ve noticed he doesn’t see as well and his eyes are getting very cloudy. Does anyone else have a dog in the age range that is losing their eyesight?

    • KoAussie says:

      As dogs age, their iris hardens and becomes somewhat cloudy. Depending on the cause, cataracts, some inherited can start as early as six months in some breeds. An opthalmologist can examine your pet and determine the cause and severity of his cataracts.

    What is the percentage of losing your eyesight after doing cataract eye surgery?
    Is it a fairly safe procedure? Because I was thinking about getting it done.

    • Indiana Jones says:

      its pretty much a slim to none chance of loosing your vision after a cataract surgery.

      its one of the safest surgeries out there.

      even if you have multiple serious eye problems like myself its not all that risky.
      i’ve had 4 detached retinas, coloboma, and glaucoma and the cataract surgery went just fine.

      here is a great link where you can learn all about cataracts and the surgery:

      and you should definitely talk to your ophthalmologist about the surgery.

    Does losing your eyesight make your eyes smaller?
    my friends have been saying my eyes looks small. I have gone from okay vision to -1.75 in both eyes in one year…I wear glasses sometimes in class and contacts outside

    does wearing glasses or losing vision make your eyes long term smaller ? or any affects?

    • kasumicat says:

      Eyeglasses do not actually make your eyes larger or smaller. Eyeglasses do change the appearance of your eyes while you wear them. If your eyeglasses are a minus (-) lens, then they make your eyes appear smaller. If your eyeglasses are a plus (+) lens, then they make your eyes appear larger. These are not actual changes to your eyes, they just appear differently behind the lenses.
