    Wearing glasses with a mask is not an easy exercise. However, they could be complementary: researchers in China suggest that people who wear glasses have a lower risk of being infected with the new coronavirus. Only a few spectacle wearers among COVID-19 hospitalized patients As scientists explain in the journal JAMA Ophthalmology, only a few spectacle wearers have been hospitalized with symptoms since the novel coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. To prove his thesis, it was noted in the medical record whether a patient wears glasses or not. Their study found that only 16 of the 276 patients admitted to Suizhou Zengdu Hospital, or 5.8 percent, wore glasses continuously. That is, patients who used their glasses more than eight hours a day. They later discovered that all of these patients were myopic. There were 14 other presbyopia (eyestrain) patients with less consistent lens wear. Based on previous studies, they calculated how many people in China’s Hubei province – where the hospital is located – suffered from myopia. The proportion of the myopic population was 31.5%,...
    (CNN)It's a pesky problem: As soon as you strap on your cloth face mask and head out the door, your glasses fog up. But there's a simple fix for that, and it'll only take a minute or two. All you need is soap and water. This advice comes from the medical journal Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, courtesy of two doctors. And if their defogging trick can work in the emergency room, it can certainly work in the grocery store. Why fogging happens, and why this solution worksYour specs fog up because the mask directs your breath upward instead of in front of you, which is good for preventing disease transmission but bad for anyone with less-than-stellar eyesight. Soap and water act like a cloak that reduces surface tension on the lenses. This magic mix allows the water molecules from your breath to distribute evenly, rather than cluster on your lens in a way that makes it difficult to see.1. Always wash your hands with soap and water firstRemember, scrub for 20 seconds (two rounds...
    New research suggests that a common accessory that is already worn by millions of people can make the wearer three times less likely to catch COVID-19. While face masks have been found to reduce the risk of catching or spreading COVID-19 through the mouth and nose, not much research has been done on how to keep the virus from entering via people’s eyes. However, a recent study found that people who wear glasses at least 8 hours a day are two to three times less likely to catch COVID-19 than people who are not wearing them. The same level of protection applies to people who wear sunglasses whenever they are outside. The glasses provide some physical protection against the virus spreading via airborne saliva or mucus, but the real reason glasses wearers aren’t as susceptible to catching COVID-19 is because spectacles keep people from touching and rubbing their eyes. The study's lead researcher is Amit Kumar Saxena, of India. To read the full study, go to medrxiv.org.

    Good news, glasses wearers: Your spectacles may offer you some extra protection from the novel coronavirus, according to the findings of a new study.  In a report published earlier this month on the pre-print site medRxiv, researchers said that those who wear glasses at least eight hours during the day are less likely to contract the novel disease because they touch their eyes less frequently than those who do not wear glasses.  In a report published earlier this month on the pre-print site medRxiv, researchers said that those who wear glasses at least eight hours during the day are less likely to contract the novel disease because they touch their eyes less frequently than those who do not wear glasses. (iStock) COVID-19 mainly spreads when a sick person coughs, sneezes, or even talks, with the infectious particles posing a risk to healthy persons should they breathe those infectious particles in (hence the importance of mask-wearing and social distancing measures). However, the virus can also spread through the membranes protecting your eyes, namely the conjunctiva. Indeed, "touching and rubbing...
    WEARING glasses makes you up to three times less likely to catch Covid, a study has found. Researchers found people with spectacles rub and touch their eyes less, which is a “significant route of infection”. ???? Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates...   1People who wear glasses are less likely to catch Covid, a study has suggestedCredit: Getty Images - Getty The analysis also found poor and uneducated people are more likely to get the virus - partly because they don’t wear glasses as much. According to the report, published in India, people touch their faces 23 times an hour and their eyes three times an hour on average. Lead researcher Amit Kumar Saxena wrote: “Transmission occurs by touching the face, nose, mouth and eyes. “Touching one’s nose and mouth is significantly reduced when wearing a face mask properly. But wearing a face mask does not protect the eyes. “Touching and rubbing of the eyes with contaminated hands may be a significant route of infection for the virus. “The risk of Covid-19 was two to...
    Wearable tech and augmented reality provider Vuzix is back at CES 2021 with another pair of its smart glasses, this time with a new advancement. The latest pair is powered by microLED technology, thanks to a partnership with the Chinese firm Jade Bird Display. MicroLED displays have emerged in recent years as viable alternatives to OLED screens, driving advancements mostly in the television space. Yet, the tech in this context allows for ultra small but powerful display projectors to be fitted into both sides of the smart glasses, which, to Vuzix’s credit, look pretty close to something you’d be comfortable wearing out in public on a daily basis. Combined with Vuzix’s waveguide tech and its display engine optics for mapping the image onto the inside of the glass, the result is an impressive-looking gadget that can project a stereoscopic monochrome or color image onto both lenses at a variety of pixel densities and resolutions, depending on the software requirements. Similar to Google Glass, Vuzix’s smart glasses are more heads-up displays than true...
    Wearing a face mask does not have to be an uncomfortable experience leading to breakouts, fogged glasses and sore ears.  Two experts have had their say on mask use, after it became mandatory for all residents of greater Sydney, including the Blue Mountains, Central Coast and Wollongong to wear them this week. The recent outbreaks in Sydney's Northern Beaches and some western suburbs led to the new restrictions - and people who refuse to wear a mask will be fined $200.

    Dr. Dan Heiferman wears a Band-Aid over his mask to keep his surgical loupes from fogging. Courtesy of Dr. Dan Heiferman Dr. Daniel Heiferman, a neurosurgeon, uses a Band-Aid to secure his mask to the bridge of his nose, which prevents glasses fogging and is gentle on sensitive skin.  He likes large Band-Aids and fabric ones, but encourages people to find whatever method to wear masks safe and effectively works for them.  "I can't tell you how frequently I see people whose noses are exposed, which is as good as not wearing anything, or readjusting it constantly, or bringing it down to speak," Heiferman said. "Everyone is having to reinvent the wheel on this."  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Two months ago, Dr. Daniel Heiferman joined Twitter because he wanted to feel more involved in the neurosurgery community after in-person conferences and trainings were cancelled or moved online.  At first, Heiferman, a cerebrovascular and endovascular neurosurgery fellow in Memphis, tweeted nerdy, niche things like, "Pigs have incredibly large olfactory bulbs, really thick calvarium, and very...
    GETTING behind the wheel at night can be a challenge even for the best drivers. But those with vision problems can have a totally different experience driving in the dark. 4 A Twitter account posted this image apparently showing what it is like to drive with astigmatismCredit: Unusual Facts/Twitter And it may not even be something you've noticed before as one social media user set out to prove. Posting two images on Twitter, the account claimed that they show what driving with astigmatism looks like compared with "normal" vision. In one picture, a car is seen at traffic lights but there are streaks of light splayed across the image making it difficult to see. The second photograph shows a similar scene of cars waiting in traffic, but the lights had just a slight blur around them. 'Astigmatism vs without' According to the account, the side-by-side images show "what people with Astigmatisms vs without". Astigmatism is when the eye isn’t perfectly round like a football but more like a rugby ball shape, which can lead to blurred vision. This means that...
    More than half of American citizens would refuse to wear a face mask in a bar or restaurant – regardless of government advice. And four in 10 wouldn’t consider donning a face covering when shopping, despite being surrounded by other people. A study of 2,000 adults found one-third feel self-conscious at the thought of wearing a mask when leaving the house. SWNS And while 56 percent are prepared to don a face covering when going on public transport, 69 percent have no intention of wearing one when walking, while six in 10 won’t consider it for meeting family or friends. One in 10 Americans would go so far as to say they will refuse to wear a face mask anywhere in public – even if it became a law introduced in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Four in 10 believe wearing a mask to protect from COVID-19 is both unnecessary and over the top, while 12 percent consider them “pointless.” “Face masks will become the norm and users will need to find ways to make them comfortable and effective,”...
