I was wondering how can I order contacts without having to go to a doctor? I wear glasses amd have since I was 10. Ive never tried to get contacts before and I dont know what the presciptions would be. I tried to order contacts but I don't know my numbers or anything. My eye doctor told me it would cost me to get my numbers and that I would have to.get the contacts there. I wouldn't be able.to just get the numbers and leave to order them. I just want to get them.cheaper. Any suggestions?

Google says they'll make Google Glass available for prescription wearers later this year. It will be interesting to see whether multifocal wearers will be able to adapt to them, but I'm willing to try out the single-vision version. Sounds pretty cool!

What about nutrition, and a limitation of eyeglasses altogether ? ?

Do you have experience with people who have Sjogren's syndrome?  I am very sensitivity to natural and indoor light especially at work.  what kind of eyeglasses will block some light.

Dear DR. Heiting, i am a 72 yr. old female. Since last Nov. I have had a eye problem. I have gone to 2 cornea specialist. I was told i have herpes. Nothing growing in my eye from culture. 2 flare ups, and i am finally ok. I was told i would have to take this.med. for the rest of my life. No way, because i don't think it's necessary. I have a sister that goes to a nursing home and takes care of her step mother then gets the pink eye all the time. I have put 2 and 2 together and i think i get the pink eye from my sister because she let it slip one day and said , oh, i caught the pink eye again from her step mother. I am not a DR, but u developed bacterial conjuntivitis from the pink eye i came in contact with my sister hugging and kissing me. Every time i go visit my sister, i get pink eye . I have read alot of articles in medicial books and i feel that i have now Permanent damage for this mess, and now from having a blister infected over the cornea i am blind in my right eye. I used pretasone, eye jel, antibotics to get my eye well. I am ok now , just don't let anyone touch me . I have now tried tobe careful and not fobic. Thank you for your time, juneharvey885@yahoo.com
