Want a new frame every day? Glasses like power glasses help us see the world clearly, while sunglasses help make a fashion statement, providing protection from the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Quality eyewear isn’t hard to find at physical outlets or online, although affordability is a major concern, especially if you like to match eyewear to the outfit of the day. If you are looking for affordable eyewear that does not compromise on quality, Patuatuli, home to the largest wholesale eyewear markets in Bangladesh, can offer you just that.

Why go to Patuatuli?

There is no shortage of eyewear stores in Dhaka, with online stores also catering to your demand and convenience. Why choose a wholesale market located in a bustling mall in Dhaka? Let us introduce you to this case: glasses that usually cost between 1000 and 1500 Tk are available between 400 and 500 Tk in Patuatuli!

“All eyewear is imported from China, only a few are imported from India. We have a large collection, you name it and we can provide it to you,” said Md Osman Goni, owner of Eye Fashion on the ground floor. floor of Nurul Haque Tower, Patuatuli.

While selling primarily to wholesalers, retail consumers can also shop for their favorite eyewear, with the added benefit of haggling! It will cost you even less if you buy in large quantities, as it is a great option if you have friends or family members who are very dependent on glasses or are looking for new glasses.

Types of glasses

Want to try trendy cat eye glasses or oversized square metal glasses? What about round or wayfarer glasses? All of these and more are available in the markets of Patuatuli. While electric glasses remain the most sought after item, blue light blocking glasses, which reduce the amount of blue light reaching the eye, are also in demand as screen time consumption has increased for most people.

Electric glasses are sold mainly in metal frames and other variations. There are different types of lenses used in eyeglasses such as bifocals, photosun and others. White lenses are the most in demand while blue lenses are very popular among young people.

Prices start from 150 Tk up to 1500 Tk and more. All of these prices include the frames and the correct assembled motorized lenses.

If you’ve been wanting to get round aviator or hipster sunglasses but are always putting them off because of their expensive tags, the sunglasses collections at Patuatuli Markets will intrigue you. You will find your favorite sunglasses in many variations that perfectly match your sense of style.

Prices vary from 150 Tk to 2000 Tk and more.

“The glasses you see here, if you want to buy them elsewhere, will cost you at least twice the price, so you are basically the source of the glasses market in Bangladesh,” added Md Osman Goni.

Accessories for your glasses

Boxes and a cleaning cloth are provided with your newly purchased glasses. With wholesale prices starting at 50 Tk per pack for the cloths and 80 Tk for the boxes, you can also have them in large quantities if you ever need spares! A very handy tool for your glasses is the lens cleaner, which should be used once or twice a month to clean your glasses, priced around 40-80 Tk.

You can also have your eyes examined by a doctor, as there are offices near the shops. It offers a convenient option to have both ophthalmologists and eyewear stores nearby.

How to get to Patuatuli Eyewear Market

A short distance from Bahadur Shah Park and just beyond Jagannath University on Chittaranjan Avenue there is a pedestrian bridge and on the right side is Patuatuli. There are quite a few markets out there under one domain. New markets have also been built in buildings like Nurul Haque Tower, Sheikh Jamal Tower, etc.

Shops are open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., six days a week, with Friday being the public holiday. So shop around the eyewear markets in Patuatuli and dive into the experience of finding the right eyewear for you.

Could these Vuity eye drops make bifocals a thing of the past? https://see-concept.com/could-these-vuity-eye-drops-make-bifocals-a-thing-of-the-past/ Thu, 05 May 2022 14:58:47 +0000 https://see-concept.com/could-these-vuity-eye-drops-make-bifocals-a-thing-of-the-past/

When people reach their 40s and beyond, their near vision begins to deteriorate. For many people, increasing the font size on a phone or maximizing the brightness on a computer is the only way to be able to read text.

This condition is known as presbyopia and affects approximately 128 million people in the United States and over one billion people worldwide.

In late 2021, the United States Food and Drug Administration approved a new eye drop drug to treat presbyopia. As an optometrist, I was initially skeptical. Before the release of these eye drops—called Vuity— people would need glasses, contacts or eye surgery to relieve presbyopia. But after learning how these eye drops worked, I realized that for many people they could offer an easier and safer way to see clearly again.

How the eyes focus

Many parts of the human eye interact with incoming light to produce a clear image.

The first thing the light hits is the cornea, the transparent outer layer that initially bends the light. Then light passes through the iris and pupil, which can shrink or grow to let more or less light into the inside of the eye. It then moves through the lens, which further bends the light and focuses it precisely on the center of the retina. Finally, the light signal is transferred to the optic nerve at the back of the eye, for the brain to interpret as an image.

To produce a clear image, your eyes must adjust to the distance of an object. Your eyes go through three main steps to focus on objects close to your face: your eyes point to the object you want to look at, your lenses change shape, and your pupils constrict.

Once you have aimed your gaze at what interests you, a small muscle in the eye contracts, which changes the shape of the lens to make it thicker. The thicker the lens, the more the light deforms as it passes through. At the same time, your pupils constrict to block some of the incoming light from other objects in the distance. When light bounces off an object and enters your eye, the rays of light in the center provide a clear image. Blocking light scatter by constricting the pupil helps sharpen the image of nearby objects.

You can simulate this process using a camera on your cell phone. First, point the camera at something in the distance. Next, move your thumb into the image, holding it about 6 inches away. Your thumb will start out blurry, but as the camera lens changes shape, your thumb will come into focus.

Presbyopia stiffens the lens of the eye, and when a person cannot bend their lens as easily, they are unable to focus incoming light on the correct part of the retina and images appear blurry.

What is presbyopia?

Presbyopia is the inability of the eyes to focus on near objects, resulting in blurry images. It begins when people are in their 40s and progresses until it plateaus around age 60.

Researchers know that age is the primary driver of presbyopia, but there is ongoing debate about the mechanical causes at its root.

One theory suggests that as lenses age, they become heavier and cannot change shape as easily. Another theory suggests that the muscle that pulls the lens weakens with age. I suspect presbyopia is probably due to a combination of the two. Whatever the cause, the result is that when looking at nearby objects, people’s eyes are no longer able to bend incoming light enough to direct it to the center of the retina. Instead, light is focused to a location behind the retina, resulting in blurred vision.

How do eye drops work

Remember that there are two main things the eye does to focus on near objects: the lens changes shape and the pupil gets smaller. Since presbyopia limits the ability of the lens to change shape, these eye drops compensate by narrowing the pupil. Constricting the pupil reduces the amount of light scatter. This causes light entering the eye to be better focused on the retina, creating a wider range of distances where objects are in focus and allowing people to see both near and far objects clearly.

After you put the drops in your eyes, it takes about 15 minutes for the active ingredient, pilocarpine, to start working. Pilocarpine is a drug that was first discovered in the late 1800s and can treat conditions such as glaucoma and ocular hypertension. The effect on the pupils lasts about six hours.

Smaller pupils mean less light enters the eye. Although this is not a problem during the day when there is plenty of sunlight, it can cause difficulty seeing in low light conditions. Besides these disadvantages, the most common side effects of the drops are headaches and red eyes.

Presbyopia in the future

Vuity is currently approved for once-daily use in each eye. One bottle will cost around $80, requires a prescription, and will last almost a month if used daily. For some people, it could be a great alternative or complement to glasses or surgery.

While Vuity may be the first FDA-approved eye drops to treat presbyopia, researchers are investigating a number of other approaches. Some are developing eye drops containing nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs to help constrict the pupil, such as Vuity. Other teams are investigating drops that soften and reduce the weight of the lens to promote easier focusing. Finally, some early research has shown that pulsed electrical stimulation of eye muscles can help strengthen them and improve people’s ability to bend their lenses.

The future of presbyopia treatment is exciting as researchers work on many potential ways to overcome this universal condition of old age. For now, Vuity, while not a magic bullet for everyone with presbyopia, is an innovative option and may be worth discussing with your eye doctor.

Benjamin Franklin’s Last Gamble: The Dividing Death of the Favorite Founder, the Enduring Afterlife, and the Blueprint for American Prosperity (Mariner), by Michael Meyer https://see-concept.com/benjamin-franklins-last-gamble-the-dividing-death-of-the-favorite-founder-the-enduring-afterlife-and-the-blueprint-for-american-prosperity-mariner-by-michael-meyer/ Thu, 05 May 2022 13:36:12 +0000 https://see-concept.com/benjamin-franklins-last-gamble-the-dividing-death-of-the-favorite-founder-the-enduring-afterlife-and-the-blueprint-for-american-prosperity-mariner-by-michael-meyer/

Benjamin Franklin added “obvious” to the line “We hold these truths” in the Declaration of Independence. He was also America’s first diplomat, invented the lightning rod and bifocal lenses, and urged compromise at the Constitutional Convention – when he wasn’t coining phrases (“A penny saved is a penny…”) that have lasted for centuries. Less remembered are the pair of endowments he created in Boston and Philadelphia, lending money at low interest rates to help “tradesmen,” skilled laborers, establish careers.

With Benjamin Franklin’s Last Bet, Michael Meyer, professor of English at the University of Pittsburgh, explores this revolutionary act of philanthropy and how it has been used or abused over time. Unlike the vociferous philanthropists of today, with their showy demands and naming rights, Franklin’s legacy was intended to quietly foster the growth of a skilled workforce and support trade schools, much like the mission of MATC.

As Meyer notes in his engaging account, Franklin would be disappointed by the scarcity of young people these days who are willing to roll up their sleeves and learn how to snake a drain or fix a slamming air conditioner.

Life Unwound: New insights can lead us in new directions https://see-concept.com/life-unwound-new-insights-can-lead-us-in-new-directions/ Tue, 03 May 2022 15:45:28 +0000 https://see-concept.com/life-unwound-new-insights-can-lead-us-in-new-directions/

Have you heard the story of the man who looked at a coiled rope, assumed it was a snake, and jumped back in a panic?

Susan Young, MSEd, MSC, is living happily in retirement and hopes to see more of her grandchildren in 2022.

Or the story of a monk who lived for decades in a cave and for years created a floor-to-ceiling image of a tiger with bold stripes and edgy whiskers on the walls? After the monk put the finishing touches on the wildcat’s intense eye, he stepped back to admire his fine art. Then, fearing that the bloodthirsty carnivore would eat him, the man screamed and fled from the cave.

We humans tend to glimpse things a certain way and react as if our thoughts are true with what Einstein called “a kind of optical illusion of consciousness.” Thus, Marcel Proust was probably right when he said: “The voyage of discovery does not consist in seeing new landscapes but in having new eyes.

My journey with new eyes started with my first pair of glasses in third grade. My eye doctor told me that I should also wear a patch on my right eye until my left eye gets stronger. He said my left eye was “lazy” because it was rolling inward. The right eye had to be covered to force the muscular effort of the left.

With a lazy eye, with a sleepy left eye, and before glasses, when I looked the other kids straight in the eye, they were like, “Hey, sleazy, are you looking at me? They zigzagged their eyeballs and chanted, “Cross-eyed, cross-eyed.”

I would look at the ground. My stomach tightened. I would choke and curl up small. They teased me and I saw a terrifying tiger. They laughed at me and I thought I wasn’t worthy to play with them. It’s hard to make friends if we perceive people as creepy snakes.

So I wore my new glasses and my patch with hope. Now things would change on the playing field. Again they laughed at me: “four eyes” and with the patch, “three eyes”. Yet I had somehow grown to imagine four eyes as a chance to see well, to uncross my eyes. I liked my chic blue and silver frames. And because I had also adopted a new glasses/patch/vision correction mental frame, their taunts didn’t bother me. It’s funny how perception works, how beliefs shape our reality.

For more than 60 years, my glasses have symbolized a metaphor and have taught me to ask: “What are my delusions of conscience?” How can I refine my view of the world? Can I concentrate more skillfully? »

How do we look at our lives? Do we view pain, setbacks, defeats, illnesses and new diagnoses as snakes and tigers? Or can we transform our optical illusions and patch up our perceptions? Could they offer us new ways to look at the struggles of life, to see the opportunities for growth?

Recently someone stole my bifocal sunglasses. Maybe they liked the shiny case. They won’t like what they can’t see through my prescription. Thieves will suffer from blurring. Will they see their madness? To feel guilty? Do you feel sad about their lack of clear vision? And for us, when we are in emotional pain, when we are wasting away in misfortune, when we feel stuck, can we ask, “What am I not seeing? (perhaps sunlight, spring buds, children’s smiles, someone else’s perspective, support from loved ones, or needed behavior change).

Today, when I feel blind, blinded or blinded, I try to remind myself to consider a new perspective, to change my point of view, because the lens through which we assess the world clarifies if we see the crisis myopically as a danger or also as an opportunity.

MMORE TIME SPENT on devices has led to higher rates of myopia, which now affects one in three American children. It is predicted that half of the world’s population will be myopic by 2050 with nearly one billion high myopes. Popular treatments include atropine eye drops, nighttime ortho-k contact lenses, and daytime soft multifocal CLs. Coming soon to the United States, bifocal glasses from Essilor’s Stellest lens, HOYA, and DIMS, with its HALT technology.

Ashley Wallace-Tucker, DOBellaire Family Eye Care, Bellaire, TX

Dr Tucker

We talk to patients about myopia as a pathological entity, not as myopia. We explain the need to focus on preventing side effects like retinal detachment and glaucoma. We are most concerned about myopia in children, where it progresses rapidly. My favorite treatments are daytime CL lenses and nighttime ortho-k lenses. I like the daily disposable MiSight from CooperVision. They also offer a monthly disposable, Biofinity. I use the NaturalVue multifocal lens and a SynergEyes hybrid lens. Multifocal is the most effective design for myopia. To slow myopia, children can take atropine drops once a day. I suggest lifestyle changes like good lighting when reading and more green time, less screen time. Most nearsighted parents want something better for their children. when I break it down, they’re ready to step in.

Katherine Schuetz, DO Little Eyes Pediatric Eye Care, Carmel, IN

Dr Schuetz

We have built a myopia control practice over the past seven years and I enjoy giving my honest opinion to patients. The options I recommend are ortho-k CLs, atropine eye drops, and MiSight CLs. My last choice is bifocals, which tend to be more effective in patients with esophoric posture. I educate parents on the options, but also involve the children in the conversation. If they are not ready for CL, we use different varieties of atropine drops and check them every three months. If there is a year of stability, we will see them every six months. It depends on the motivation of the parent and the patient. We already have 6 and 7 year olds in ortho-k. Our staff are excellent at making sure the follow up takes place.

I May Not Be A Ferret Runner, But I’m A Damn Good Reader | Lifestyles https://see-concept.com/i-may-not-be-a-ferret-runner-but-im-a-damn-good-reader-lifestyles/ Sun, 24 Apr 2022 15:00:00 +0000 https://see-concept.com/i-may-not-be-a-ferret-runner-but-im-a-damn-good-reader-lifestyles/

Surveys that ask, “What are your hobbies?” have given me chills for years. Other people always seemed to have interesting hobbies like skydiving or ghost hunting or ferret racing, so I often embroidered the truth and listed activities like jewelry making or writing poetry or the study of astronomy as ways I spent my free time.

I’ve finally moved on from these futile lies because anyone who’s known me for more than five minutes knows that the only jewelry I ever made was the camp thong type, the only poem I ever wrote dates back to the first grade (although it was pinned to the bulletin board as an example of nice word spacing), and the closest I’ve ever had to studying the stars is reading my daily horoscope.

My one and only hobby has always been and always will be reading, a hobby that I thought was incredibly cheesy and certainly not shouting from the rooftops. It still sounds pretty cheesy, but luckily I’m past the point of faking it. I’m finally proud to say I’m a reader, although I would argue with whoever came up with the slogan “Readers are leaders.” Most readers don’t want to direct anything; we just want to read everything.

That’s the only reading problem. One book leads to another, and there’s no way you’ll ever be truly finished. I remember taking a film studies class in high school and the teacher told us he couldn’t watch even a minute of a movie without feeling like you had to sit down and watch it all. I understand that because I’m the same with a book, even one that I don’t like. Kermit the frog might think it’s not easy being green, to which I say try to be neurotic.

I recently read a biography about a 1940s movie star whose ex-husband became President of the United States. Naturally, I had to read the memoir their son wrote about growing up with a famous mom and dad. In the son’s memoir, he talked about his often fragile relationship with his equally famous stepmother, so of course I had to read his memoir. This led to a book by the famous mother-in-law’s astrologer which really wasn’t very interesting, but I still finished it before picking up a book on how to write your own horoscope.

I tell you it’s endless.

When it comes to history and science subjects, I cheat a little and read children’s books when possible. Not picture books, but college editions that explain things in a way that any adult dum-dum, including this one, can understand.

Like when I read a novel about a dolphin who saved the heroine from drowning. After finishing it, I realized how little I knew about dolphins – would they really save someone who was drowning? So I read a college book about smiling creatures and now know that not only are there documented stories of dolphins rescuing stranded swimmers and performing many other amazing feats, I also want to adopt one and having it live in our bathtub.

I don’t really mind being neurotic when it comes to one book leading to another, even though it resulted in a dangerously high pile of books piling up on my bedside table. Frankly, I can’t think of a better pastime than reading, not even ferret racing, and I’m just waiting for the next time someone asks me what I do with my free time.

“I’m reading,” I’ll say proudly, shoulders back and bifocals perched on the tip of my nose. And I won’t even be intimidated if they tell me that in their spare time they make diamonds out of used wads of Juicy Fruit gum.

Which makes me wonder, how are diamonds formed anyway? Looks like it’s time to go to the library and find a college book about it.

Presbyopia

Presbyopia, or farsightedness, occurs when distant objects are mostly clear, while near objects are blurry. A distant display panel may appear brighter This usually occurs when the eyeball is too short or the cornea is abnormally shaped.



According to the NAIfarsightedness affects approximately 5-10% of the US population.

Myopia

Better known as myopia, myopia occurs when a person can see near objects clearly, but when objects are far away, they appear blurry. A student may have difficulty taking notes on the board despite being seated in front of it, or even the book on their desk.

This condition can occur when the eyeball is too long or the cornea is too curved. The American Optometric Association believes that myopia affects about 30 percent of the American population.

Astigmatism

In the case of astigmatism, the light is not evenly distributed on the retina, which makes the images blurry or stretched. However, not all people with astigmatism have distorted vision.

This particular condition can occur at any age. It can also present as mild astigmatism, while those with more severe astigmatism may need glasses to correct it.

Presbyopia

Presbyopia is also a typical symptom of aging. It’s when your eye slowly loses the ability to focus on nearby objects quickly. Individuals usually begin to show symptoms of presbyopia between the 38 and 42 years oldaccording to Penn Medicine.

As people age, the eye is not as flexible as it used to be. When not able to flex as well as before, concentration on nearby objects is impaired. This is why many people need bifocals or reading glasses as they age.

A few other vision problems include things like age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, and cataracts. These conditions cannot be treated with glasses.

If any of these symptoms happen to you, see an eye doctor as soon as possible. Regular dilation eye exams are also recommended to ensure you can see clearly and to monitor your eye health.

The Importance of Student-Run Free Clinics in the Preclinical Setting” in-Training, the online peer-reviewed publication for medical students https://see-concept.com/the-importance-of-student-run-free-clinics-in-the-preclinical-setting-in-training-the-online-peer-reviewed-publication-for-medical-students/ Mon, 18 Apr 2022 10:00:58 +0000 https://see-concept.com/the-importance-of-student-run-free-clinics-in-the-preclinical-setting-in-training-the-online-peer-reviewed-publication-for-medical-students/

It’s easy for medical students to think of medicine as presented in our textbooks and PowerPoint slides: clear, defined, and explained with objective data. Especially in the preclinical years, when we are not talking regularly with patients, it is easier to conceptualize the disease from a pathophysiological perspective, with less emphasis on its complex socioeconomic underpinnings.

As a result, after a year and a half of “textbook-based” preclinical training, I noticed that my initial motivation for pursuing a career in medicine – the opportunity to connect and serve other humans – was no longer there. more to the front of my mind; I had been privileged to focus on my studies (thanks to my good health and finances), but this came at the expense of remembering my true inspiration to become a doctor.

Things changed when I started volunteering regularly at the free student-run clinic at Saint Louis University, the Health Resource Center. As director of the SLU view program, I coordinated eye medical care for underserved populations in Saint Louis. The SLU Sight program has brought together medical students, optometrists, ophthalmologists and optometry students to offer free diagnosis and management of eye disorders and prescription eyewear.

Working at HRC gave me pause as I faced the significant disparities in health care within my own community. Many patients had no job opportunities, lacked housing, faced language barriers or were affected by other oppressive forces. With limited resources, these patients had to prioritize their basic human needs over other concerns, including vision health.

In one of my first encounters with patients at the clinic, I remember a seemingly uninterested young patient who walked in with headphones plugged into her ears. Her hands gripped the arms of the examination chair tightly as she waited impatiently for the clinic’s optometrist to arrive. As I examined her visual acuity, I understood why she felt uneasy: an urgent need for corrective lenses as well as undiagnosed cataracts had reduced her to near blindness.

According to my supervising optometrists, this was typical; when individuals are insecure, they often neglect their vision until urgent intervention is needed. As we offered a treatment plan, her shaky leg revealed her discomfort as she raised concerns about costs, time off to attend future appointments and finding transportation to and from the clinical.

Later, the patient returned to the clinic to try on a pair of bifocals that we had measured and ordered. As she tried them on, I immediately noticed her crossed arms and tense facial expression starting to relax. I held up a mirror and saw that vision wasn’t the only thing restored: her previously anxious demeanor dissipated as she laughed softly at the clarity of her reflection. In those relieved, tired eyes, I saw someone who had long been at the mercy of circumstances beyond their control, only now I also saw a way to help them in a practical way.

I left this experience with an indisputable evidence: to take care of others holistically is our responsibility as medical providers. We may not be able to change the life circumstances into which people are born, but we can minimize the damage caused by systemic barriers to health. Tackling such massive hurdles will require multifaceted effort, but direct service in the community at risk is an important starting point. This is where free clinics shine: by simply providing underserved patients to access to the healthcare system, free clinics can have a disproportionate influence on people’s quality of life.

Service is a necessary and mutually beneficial component of medical education. Although volunteer work can be exhausting when combined with the other demands of life, it provides challenges and opportunities for growth that we might otherwise miss during our preclinical years. As future physicians, we will soon have major impacts on the lives of our patients in obvious ways – like our major clinical decisions – as well as in more subtle ways – like the small efforts we make to act on their social determinants of health. health. As for me, I am no longer angry with the state of my community, but rather eager to use medicine to create more positive identities for its members – a perspective that I could never have developed within the barren confines of a preclinical conference room.
