Lexapro (Escitalopram)

A young racquetball player from Peoria, Illinois, Marcie O’Shaunessy, had her eye cut open when her opponent’s racquet struck and smashed her eyeglasses. Luckily for Marcie, surgical repair saved her vision. Now she is back playing racquetball, but she always makes sure to wear special impact-resistant safety goggles ground to her prescription.
Such an accident to one or both eyes is not uncommon in sports activities, since Americans are exceedingly competitive and exercise conscious. Each year, over 35,000 people suffer eye injuries that impair vision. Ophthalmologists have noted an alarming increase in eye traumas, especially during these summer months. Tennis, hockey, cycling, basketball, football, and other recreational activities are the culprits. Yet, the National Society to Prevent Blindness has indicated that ninety percent of all eye injuries can be prevented with proper safety equipment or, as a result of accidents happening out of uncorrected visual impairment, with refractive surgery or external visual aids.
Sports eye protectors, which are goggle-type molded eye-guards, with or without corrected lenses are most useful. They can be made with one’s prescription built in. A full lens is recommended for badminton, cycling, yard work, woodworking, and other do-it-yourself ventures. They may be acquired from eye doctors, sporting goods stores, racquet clubs, and opticians.
Ophthalmologist Paul F. Vinger, M.D. of Lexington, Massachusetts suggested that the best protection is offered by optical quality polycarbonate lenses, which can withstand very high-intensity blows. One such product, Action Eyes, is made by Bausch & Lomb. Another is called Pro-tek Gargoyles and is injection-molded, wraparound, light-weight, shatterproof eye protectors with clear or sunglass tint, useful for skiing and cycling as well as racquet sports.
Dr. Vinger also recommended that safety goggles should be worn when trimming shrubs, using a power mower or workshop tools, or spraying paint or pesticides. Goggles can protect your eyes from the irritating smoke of a barbecue.
With some non-contact sports such as track and bicycling you’re able to participate wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses. With others such as swimming, diving, gymnastics, karate, judo, and more, corrective lenses are impossible to use. Surely permanent refractive correction with the newest medical breakthrough, which the author has named “high-tech vision,” is of vital importance to those sportspersons who are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism but can’t use external aids for their vision.
Besides the newly introduced refractive surgical techniques, contacts and spectacles have been the two main forms of correction for difficulties with one’s cornea. Special lenses may have been recommended for your particular sport or occupation. For example, a golfer could order special eyeglasses that possess built-in corrections for addressing the ball and another lens change for watching the ball wing its way down the fairway. Target and trap shooters might wear specially made eyeglasses for seeing their gun sights and a second correction for visualizing the targets afar. These types of external aids are called functional eyeglasses. They can be tailored for the individualized seeing requirements of your sport or hobby.
But now these gimmick glasses and contacts no longer are necessary, for a technologically perfect procedure has been developed to correct nearsightedness.
