Belajar secara berterusan, implikasi kepada mata anda.

Selalu dalam status laman fesbuk, org citer pasal study 3 jam non stop, study tengah2 malam, study sambil main fesbuk, study sambil baring atas katil dan mcm2 style lagi la.

Kamu mgkin tak perasan, membaca @ study @ fokus pada aktivit-aktiviti dekat tanpa rehatkan mata boleh wat power mata korg naik. Tp ini untuk kes kanak-kanak la, untuk dewasa mungkin kurang berkesan.

Implikasi membaca tanpa henti ni leh sebabkan kamu pening terutama area dahi (temporal) dan kepala bhgn tepi (temporal). Ini sebab mata terlebih guna atau terlebih akomodasi. Jadi tak hairan la kalo korg pening time study lama2, bukan otak xle nak absorb, tapi mata kamu dah x leh nak terima guys!. Penat. Masalah ini akan lebih teruk untuk org yang mmg dah ada masalah untuk fokus dekat lama-lama sebelum ni. Bila baca lama2, huruf dalam buku tu jadi double, pening, cara baik nak hilangkan diorg pun tido. Akhirnya x study la malam tu.

Jadi apa yang perlu kamu buat? Baca post ini... pasal visual hygiene. Ambik mana yg anda bleh apply. Ingat study tu study jugak, tapi kalo asyik pening je mmg susuah ar nak masuk.
Good luck semua, IOptoSS

Opto Stall and Exhibition: Our Initiative


The IOptoSS would like to congratulate all 2nd and 1st year optometry students for managing our exhibition and stall during IKOD 2010, till the end. Even though we were lacking committees, but we're still able to make it a success. Yes, our teamwork did make it real.

Opto Stall - Lucrative business. It's worth to invest into this project with you guys. Great effort!

Optometry Exhibition - Not enough materials for exhibition doesn't mean that we can't convey the message to the public well! You've just proved it wrong.

3rd year and final year students: We do believe, without your support, it means nothing. Thanks a lot

Lets continue this in the next IKOD..yeah!

Visual Hygiene: What for?

Hi everyone!

Previously, we has discussed on how near work can induce myopia. Have a look at this again. Clinicians have long recognised that sustained periods of near work tend to induce myopia in susceptible individuals. Many researches suggest that accommodation plays a critical role in the progession of myopia.

Can we actually control the progression of myopia? Yes, sure!

There are few alternatives that practitioners or you can do beside using optical form of therapy. Try this, Visual Hygiene.
Visual hygiene is simply to say an activity that one person can do to relax his accommodation, so that the myopia is controlled.
Reading and writing activities at the distance from mid-knuckle to elbow, estimated by placing an elbow on the table surface and resting the chin in the palm of that hand
.Reading and writing on slant board at a 20 degree of angle.

Nonglare source of lighting and good posture. Please don't read while lying on bed!

Computer screen viewing at 16-30 inches (40-75cm)

Computer screen viewing angle 10-20 degree downward.

15 minutes break for each hour of computer use.
