Presbyopia or Loss of Vision?
One of the significant signs of vision loss occurs as a natural part of aging--presbyopia. This is a condition where changes to the elasticity of the crystalline lens of the eye begins to diminish and eye muscles grow weaker. This occurs as early as the age of forty in some adults. Generally, adults with presbyopia can be diagnosed by a licensed optician. It's always wise to have an eye exam to determine the exact causes of loss of vision no matter what the degree of vision loss may be.

"Reading" Glasses
With the advent of constant computer use, changes to vision has become significantly increased as a result of excessive use of computer monitors. However, in adults with presbyopia, near vision is usually most affected. The typical font size of print becomes more difficult to read. Reading glasses have become an accepted and popular means of aiding near vision that is impaired. Non-prescription reading glasses are less expensive than prescription reading glasses. This is particularly cost-effective if the sole vision debilitation is related exclusively to reading fine print.

Growth in Popularity of Reading Glasses
Though the growth in popularity of reading glasses may be attributed to computer use and aging eyes, reading glasses are extensively designed for comfort and are available in various styles such as magnavision reading glasses, lighted reading glasses, designer reading glasses, bifocal reading glasses and more recently, contact lens reading glasses. There are fashionable reading glasses to suit everyone's taste and vision needs. Reading glasses are available in various strengths from .50 to 2.75 in most cases. It's best to try to read fine print when determing the proper strength for reading glasses.

Non-Prescription Reading Glasses
Reading glasses do not require a prescription. Many bifocal reading glasses no line are a favorite of those who prefer to wear their fashionable reading glasses without having to constantly remove them. Rimless reading glasses and tinted reading glasses are a special fashion feature. For those with workplace issues, safety reading glasses suffice for compliance regulations. Foldable reading glasses and flip up reading glasses are a great convenience especially when traveling.

Designer Reading Glasses
Non-prescription reading glasses like John Lennon reading glasses, edell reading glasses, Dolce Gabbana reading glasses all reflect high style in designer glasses. Reading glasses make a fashion statement for any wardrobe when coordinated with style and colors of great appeal for men and women.

    What does it take for someone to lose sight in one eye?
    I’m writing a book. I have a character who has had an eyepatch since he was quite young. What are the most common ways for someone to lose sight in one eye? I’m thinking some kind of illness or infection. Would that be possible? I’ve tried googling but there doesn’t seem to be any answers for this specifically.

      actually loss of vision in the eye can occur due to involvement of any structure between the retina and cornea in the eye or due to pathway of light transmission from retina to the brain. Common causes include blockage of the blood supply to the retina, diabetes, disorders that damage the optic nerve, glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, injuries, tumors. for a list of causes you can see http://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/sym/vision_loss.htm
      infections which can cause vision loss include onchocerchiasis (river blindness), toxoplasmosis, cysticercosis (tape worm larva infection), trachoma, acanthamoeba infection (occuring in contact lens wearers), chicken pox infection causing corneal damage, etc.
      even vitamin a deficiency may involve one eye more than the other.
      personally i feel cysticercosis of the eye, trachoma, injury to the eye or a tumor of the eye are good causes. however it is amusing to search causes of visual loss for writing a novel rather than for treating patients.

    Does losing sight in one eye alter a persons psychology?
    I read that the right side of the brain controls/processes the left eye and the left side of brain controls/processes the right eye.

    Also i heard that the visual part of the brain has two sides that do two different things. one puts everything together and the other analyses/processes information. Does it mean if someone loses one eye that their psychology will be biased to one of those extremes?

    • roosted says:

      No, the brain is a master coordinator for such issues, and will compensate as it were with heightened hearing ability when sight loss occurs. Have a good Christmas.

    Could an injury make a person lose sight in one eye?
    If so, what kind of injury and to where?

    This is for a project on how the brain makes sight work

    • Meg D says:

      Any disruption along the path from eye along the optic nerve to the brain could result in loss of sight. This could be damage to the eye itself, damage to the optic nerve, or damage to one side (the opposite from the eye seeing the image) of the occipital lobe of the brain.

      Damage to the optic nerve could occur from a tumor or other type of injury.

      Damage to the occipital lobe could include a blow to the back of the head.

    Is it time to introduce a lifetime ban for eye gouging after two more players lost sight in one eye?
    Gavin Quinnell and Clarence Harding are the latest to lose their sight after being gouged. Will it take a big name to go blind before it’s dealt with properly?

    • Mark L says:

      If there were clear evidence that the gouging was intentional, then it seems to me a lifetime ban would be in order. It ought not to depend on the extent of the injury it caused: it should be evident to all persons past the age of reason that there is a high probability of grave injury in eye-gouging, regardless of the outcome. In many jurisdictions, intentional gouging could also be subject to legal sanction. Intentional gouging is far, far outside the range of risks to which we assent in playing rugby.

      However, for a lifetime ban to be justified, there would have to be clear evidence (or an admission) that the act was intentional. It is very easy for incidental contact to the face to occur, even incidental contact that leads to grave injury. Before we brand someone for life as guilty of grievous bodily harm, the level of proof should be exceptionally high.

      It certainly ought not take the blinding of a major international star to cause action. Not only because we do not wish major stars to be hurt, but because it is not the fame or skill that is the issue – it is the lifetime damage to another human being as a result off an intentional act. Could be a third-side prop for a pub-league team.
