Let’s be clear, the TV does not cause the increase in risk of death.  The increase in risk of death is caused by time spent watching TV.  The more TV the older adults watched, the more likely they were to die from conditions such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, flu/pneumonia, Parkinson’s disease and liver disease, the investigators found.  Compared with those who watched less than one hour of TV per day, the risk of death during the study period was 47 percent higher for those who watched seven or more hours a day, the findings showed.

Glasses For Computer Eyestrain

Blog

Drs Cler & Cook are addressing the recent growth of eyestrain by the electronic video displays such as computer monitors, PDAs, Cellphones, Gameboys, etc.

We offer our patients the PRIO® TEST, designed to determine if special prescription computer glasses will assist in reducing eyestrain. Special single vision (or variable focus) prescription lenses can be made based on the prescription indicated from the PRIO® TEST. The patient can choose to have these special “computer glasses” made in the conventional clear lenses with an anti-glare coating protective coating or with the new “Gunnar Optics® Treatment”.
