Contact lenses. #5404

Remember that contact lenses are an extra layer on your eye, that delays oxygen to your eye, and as they age they gain proteins and deposits that can be attractive to bacteria.
The goal is to kill the bacteria and get rid of the deposits in the easiest manner, while keeping the care system simple enough that it is done by everyone. This is the new challenge, in a world where contact lenses are often thought of as a cosmetic choice rather than a medical choice. It’s comforting to know that by taking a few simple precautions as follow we can control our eye health and minimize risk:
1. Follow you eye care professional’s advise, and wash your hands before handling your contact lenses.
2. Occasionally replace your contact lens case.
3. Do not substitute saline or water for contact lens solution. Its been suggested that you do not take a shower with your contact lenses in, due to water borne microbes that can enter the eyes and be trapped between the cornea and the contact lens.
4. Do not “top off” your contact lens solutions in your case, bout replace it with fresh solution each time.
5. Clean the lenses before soaking them in the overnight case.

Carpal tunnel syndrome #1069

Carpal tunnel syndrome which is nerve damage in the hand that causes pain in the wrist has become prevalent among computer users. Chiropractor Dr. Cynthia Boccara has the following recommendations to avoid this costly and painful ailment:
• Position your computer monitor and keyboard directly in front of you. Make sure your monitor is at eye level.
• Plant your feet firmly on the floor.
• Hold your arms at a 90-degree angle so that your wrists are not bending forward or backwards.
• Sit up straight and do not slouch.
• Stretch and take frequent breaks.
• Do not use a wrist rest when typing as it will add pressure on your wrists. Use the wrist rest only to rest in between typing.

Cantaloupe #218

Eating cantaloupe, your favorite summer melon, may help to save your skin. Some studies show that the carotenoids found in cantaloupe might have skin protective effects. The research states that dietary carotenoids appear to accumulate in the skin, which helps protect it from the sun´s damaging rays. Also, cantaloupe is an excellent source of the carotenoid beta carotene.
