5 Foods That Improve Your Eyesight

 By Tahir Akbar 

Some of the most common vision problems that people face are refractive errors. Refractive errors may cause a blurry vision either for far off objects or for nearby objects. These two conditions are known as farsightedness and nearsightedness respectively.

Refractive errors are very common in Pakistani population. According to a local study, 35.7% of people in the country suffer from nearsightedness while 27.1% have long-sightedness. Fortunately, some foods can help you avoid eyesight problems. These foods also improve overall eye-health.

However, be informed that these are just the suggestions and not an alternative to professional advice. If you've an issue that requires medical attention, please seek an appointment with an eye specialist nearby.

Here are five foods that can improve eye-sight

1. Nuts

Nuts have a lot of omega 3 fatty acids. According to the research, these fatty acids can slow down age-related macular degeneration. They can also help avoid dry eyes as they are also known to preserve the moisture of the eyes.

Almonds are especially rich in vitamin E and are excellent to slow down age-related eye damages. A handful of almonds every day are enough to keep both your vision and over-all health sharp.

2. Carrots

Carrots do not have a direct effect on eye-sight but they improve over-all eye health. Carrots have a compound in them which is known as beta-carotene. Beta-carotene is the primary source of vitamin A in the body.

According to WHO, Vitamin A deficiency is one of the leading causes of blindness in the world. Thus, carrots can substantially decrease the risk of blindness, especially for people living in developing countries.

3. Spinach

Spinach is rich in a compound called lutein. Lutein is one of the pigments present in the macula. Macular pigments are crucial for vision and they are vulnerable to degeneration. Consuming the green leafy spinach can help you replenish this pigment.

In other words, spinach is ideal if you want to avoid macular degeneration and even age-related cataracts. It is also important that you eat raw spinach because cooked spinach is likely to lose all of its nutritional benefits.

4. Blueberries

Blueberries are one of the healthiest food available naturally. They are rich in anti-oxidants known as anthocyanin. Anthocyanin's not only give blueberries their purple color, but they also act as anti-viral and anti-inflammatory agents for the human body.

So, eating blueberries enhances immunity and as a byproduct gives resilience to eyes against infections. Blueberries can thus protect the retina against damaging UV rays in the sunlight. They can also protect the eyes from oxygen damage.

5. Egg Yolks

Egg yolks can also slow down the process of macular degeneration. They are rich in both zeaxanthin and lutein pigments which are crucial in keeping the vision sharp. Lutein and zeaxanthin accumulate in the middle of the macula and cancels out all the free-radicals, filtering the blue light out. We need around 6mg of these anti-oxidants every day. One egg yolk has around 0.25 mg of the antioxidant pigments and can thus be an ideal source.

Macular degeneration is one of the leading causes of poor eye-sight. The foods mentioned in this article do not prevent macular degeneration but they can certainly slow the process down.

If your macula has already degenerated, you should visit an eye-specialist nearby along with including these foods in your diet.

Get Rid Of Unwanted Face & Body Hair With Laser Hair Removal

 By Mags Whyler

Lots of women and men feel concerned about the excessive amount of hair they find growing on different parts of their body, however, there are a number of options available for them to consider when it comes to removing any unwanted hair. You might consider different methods like; shaving, depilatory creams, waxing, plucking or electrolysis, but one of the most popular cosmetic procedures used today is laser hair removal.

Women of all ages regularly use at least one method of hair removal, but in general younger women are more likely to keep on top of their hair removal regime. Shaving, waxing, threading and creams can turn into a very time-consuming lifetime chore, and these treatments often cause annoying skin irritations, ranging from mild to severe and they can last for days or weeks. They can cause cuts, nicks, redness, scales, bumps on the skin and ingrown hairs.

Laser hair removal has become an increasingly popular cosmetic and beauty treatment. Autumn is the best time of year to pursue these treatments, because as well as making sure that your skin will feel smooth and soft in time for the summer, having laser hair removal in the autumn and winter will get your legs ready for summer and often give improved results.

Laser hair removal treatment takes away hair from:

• The upper lip

• The chin; the beard and jaw line

• Nose, neck and ears

• Underarms and arms

• Legs and bikini line

• Chest and abdomen

• Back and shoulders

You can have laser treatment anywhere on the body, and the laser machine can cover small areas and large areas, quickly and safely. An advanced laser system uses a focused beam of light and heat which will penetrate the hair follicle at its root, to stop hair growth, but which will not harm the surrounding skin. The laser has a cooled sapphire window on the laser scope to further protect and cool the surface of the skin, while still letting the laser light heat the hair follicle beneath the skin.

Laser hair reduction:

• Allows you to enjoy longer-term smooth, hair-free skin

• Is suitable for most areas of the body and skin types

• Will stop painful rashes, infections and in-grown hairs

• It's a safe, effective and convenient treatment

• You'll get long-lasting results

It's considered that laser treatment is one of the most successful methods of hair removal invented, as it has a lasting and permanent effect, compared to other traditional hair removal methods.

There is a big number of people who suffer from dental and oral issues. Several cases are reported. There are cases of people losing their teeth from time to time and some having gum related issues. There are some good oral health practices which you can follow so as to avoid dental problems. For instance, if you are a parent, then you should train your family to be seeing the dentists on a monthly or annual basis. When you cultivate this practice, your children will grow up with an understanding of the importance of good dental hygiene. The good thing about these dental visits is that they will always bear fruits. Through these visits, if you happen to have an oral problem, it will be discovered and the required solution is given. Sometimes the best solution involves dental implants. Below are some of the reasons why implants could be the best solution.

Basically, these implants are long lasting and at the same time they are reliable. You can be assured that the dental implant will not decay or rot away.

2. Dazzling smiles and better speech articulation

You will be able to smile in front of people without feeling self-conscious because of how damaged your teeth are. With these implants in place, you will also be able to laugh and talk with your friends. Basically, they are reliable. These implants fit perfectly, thus you will be able to talk without the fear of mispronouncing words at any point.

3. No decay and easy to clean
