Vision-Related Problems from COVID-19 Can Be Minimized with Good Eye Care



The impact of COVID-19 can extend to our vision. Staying up-to-date with eye care checkups is critical, particularly for those in high-risk groups and those already battling ocular diseases. 

About 30 percent of those diagnosed with COVID-19 experience conjunctivitis (an eye infection), and countless others with ocular diseases that require ongoing evaluation and treatment are skipping their checkups out of fears of contracting COVID-19.

The pandemic has changed the way many people visit their doctors. However, it is important to stay up-to-date with our vision exams, particularly for those with conditions such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy that could lead to blindness if left unchecked. Those in high-risk categories should add eye protection such as glasses or face shields to protect their eyes from virus infection along with wearing masks and washing hands frequently when visiting public places.

 

People also need to know, even though there are many concerns about COVID-19, common-sense precautions can significantly reduce the risk of infection.  Dr. Daniel Laroche, Director of Glaucoma Services and President of Advanced Eyecare of New York, says, “Wash hands frequently, follow good contact lens hygiene and avoid rubbing or touching our mouth, nose and especially our eyes.''  

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has also changed the way people visit their doctors. For patients over 60, Dr. Laroche advises it's better to stay home and do telehealth over the phone or video consultation until the pandemic flattens. He also encourages people to wear face masks on visits and maintain social distancing, even if they are in a health clinic.

 

“Eyesight or human vision is one of the most important senses. As much as 80 percent of what we feel comes through our sense of sight. By protecting the eyes, people will reduce the chance of blindness and vision loss while also staying on top of any developing eye diseases, such as glaucoma and cataracts. A healthy brain function requires a healthy vision. The brain is our most essential organ, and it allows us to control other organs. Normal and healthy vision contributes to improved learning and comprehension for a better quality of life.”

Skechers Beverlee Delighted with Luxe Foam--Fashion Review



Skechers Beverlee Delighted with Luxe Foam Sandals in Multi 

Readers of this blog know I am a fan of Skechers. However, I have finally found a pair that's not perfect. 

I avoided sandals with things, because they are said to be a cause of hammer toe. I went with cute, multi-color fabric straps and a low wedge heel, so I could wear them for light walking like errands, shopping or lunch with the girls.

Unfortunately, these shoes were slightly large and my toes slid out the front. Not only did this detract from the look, but it's hard to walk comfortably when your shoes are too big.

You can't get up and move easily to do even light walking if your shoes don't fit.

Fin out how I was able to fix them and make them even more comfortable than before!

    Your Feet Will Love Skechers 3 Pack Sport Mesh No Show Liner Socks



    For Foot Odor and Comfortable Fit, Try Skechers 3 Pack Sport Mesh No Show Liner Socks

    Skechers Relaxed Fit shoes can hardly be beat for comfortable walking, but the memory foam that gives them such great support also leaves them with some odor if socks aren't worn. Since the shoes fit so well, only the thinnest of footie sock liners will work. That's why I invested in Skechers 3 Pack Sport Mesh No Show Liner Socks. 

    These Skechers footies also saved the day when I purchased some cheap Noracora Shoes where the seams rubbed my feat and the unattached inner soles came out every time I took the shoes off. Normal socks and footies would not fit but these Skechers no show mesh liners were the perfect way to fix the problem. Since they live up to their name and don't show (and they also don't slip or bunch up), they are a fashionable fix to my foot wear woes.

    I love just about everything about the Skechers relaxed fit shoes, but I have to say, these Skechers liners made them even more comfortable-- to the point they almost feel slightly loose on my feet. They definitely solved my issues with the cheap Noracora shoes. $10 for three pair is not bad for socks that don't slip, slide or bunch. Give them a try!

    Repairing the Inner Soles of Cheap Noracora Shoes


    Recently I made the mistake of buying Noracora Shoes. Not only did I receive one pair that was around three sizes too small, but the pair that did fit had inner soles that popped out every time I took the shoes off. 

    In case you wondered, it is really annoying to have your shoes' inner soles pop out every time you remove your shoes. Luckily, I came up with two good solutions to fix this problem.

    The first fix is to simply wear super thin footy socks. The shoes are too tight to wear normal socks, but thin sock liners prevent my feet from sticking to the soles of these poorly made shoes. I ordered some socks from Skechers that work perfectly. With socks, the shoes don't rub my feet as badly, as well.

    The second repair is to use double sided take to attach the inner soles to the shoes, as should have been done by the manufacturer. Actually, the manufacturer should have done even better than double sided tape, but be that as it may, the tape repair worked fine for me. I can wear my shoes both with socks and without socks and they work fine now.

    Noracora Shoes: Don't Waste Your Time & Money-- a Review

    Noracora Shoes Not Worth the Time & Money


     A few months ago, I saw an ad for some Noracora shoes, the Women's Green Slide Hollow-Out Round Toe Casual Pu Sneakers Flats, to be exact, and I made the mistake of ordering them. To start the long list of problems with the Noracora casual sneakers, the insoles are not attached to the shoes, so they come out every time I take the shoes off. Every.Time. But that's just the beginning of my list of problems with Noracora shoes. 

    The shoes are not comfortable, the seams rub my feet painfully, the tongue comes up too high and won't stay centered, and the Noracora website defaulted to the smallest size on another pair of flats when I placed my order. And don't get my started on their website review process and customer service.

    Solar Gloves to Protect Your Hands & Arms for Summer

    A collection of solar gloves

    Solar Gloves Are an Optional Way to Protect Your Skin in the Summer


    Summer is hard on your skin, and that's a fact. Photoaging causes most of the signs of aging to our skin. Dermatologists recommend liberal and regular application of sunscreen during the summer and early fall months to protect your skin from sun damage if you can't stay in the shade. 

    Protective Clothing Is a Good Substitute for Sunscreen

    However, if you can't stay indoors or under a tree and you don't want to keep up with sunscreen, protective clothing is another option to maintaining healthy skin. Hats, visors, long-sleeve shirts and long pants can protect your skin and so can solar gloves. 

    Solar gloves come in many styles, fabrics and colors and provide various degrees of protection for the arms and hands. If you are wearing a t-shirt, long solar gloves will pull up all the way to the sleeve to protect the entire arm. So whether you are working in your garden or working out with a jog or a long hike, solar gloves are one way to keep your hands and arms out of the sun.

    Read my review of solar gloves here:

    Solar Gloves for Hands & Arms, a Review: While I can't say these solar gloves are fashionable, I can say they have a certain charm to them. More importantly, they cover your arms and...

    Tennessee Falls to 3rd Least Aggressive State In Coronavirus Preparation


    Tennessee is loosing ground in the battle against Coronavirus preparation according to one study. The Coronavirus aggressiveness study indicates that the Volunteer State is not prepared enough for COVID-19 and places Tennessee near the bottom of the list in a ranking based upon preparedness.. 

    While many states are taking actions such as closing non-essential businesses, banning small gatherings, and ordering people to shelter in place to fight the spread of the coronavirus, WalletHup feels Tennessee is not doing enough. 

    WalletHub released updated rankings today on the Most Aggressive States Against the Coronavirus, as well as accompanying videos. Tennessee has fallen from the 9th Least Aggressive state to 3rd least aggressive state against COVID-19 according to the study. 

    To identify which states are taking the largest actions to combat coronavirus, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 46 key metrics. The data set ranges from tested cases of COVID-19 per capita to school closures, ICU beds, and shelter-in-place policies. Below, you can see highlights from WalletHub’s report, along with a summary of the largest rank changes from our previous report and a Q&A with WalletHub analysts.

    Aggressiveness Against the Coronavirus in Tennessee (1=Best, 25=Avg.):
    • 45th – State and Local Public Health Laboratories per Capita
    • 27th – Tested Cases of COVID-19 per Capita
    • 35th – Public Hospital System Quality
    • 43rd – Share of Workers with Access to Paid Sick Leave
    • 41st – Total Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) Funding Per Capita
    • 21st – Public Healthcare Spending per Capita

    Top 10 Coronavirus/COVID-19 Safety Tips When You Have to Get Out


    Many cities and states are now under lockdown, including Nashville. As people start to take Coronavirus more seriously, many are wondering what to buy to protect themselves and their families from COVID-19 when they have to go out shopping for groceries.

    While Coronavirus is not deadly in most cases, people over 60 and those with a history of pulmonary problems, heart disease, obesity, diabetes and hypertension are more at risk. I had pneumonia when I was 24 followed by ongoing issues with bronchitis. This means I am more at risk, so I am taking novel coronavirus seriously.

    The CDC and WHO both have information on their sites that will be helpful, but if you are looking for a few shopping tips from Amazon that can be applied to other stores, here are some of my personal recommendations. These safety basics may seem overboard to some readers, but I believe in "better safe than sorry."

    Top 10 Coronavirus Safety Tips

    1. WASH YOUR HANDS FREQUENTLY. Always wash your hands after shopping or any interaction with other people or touching any public surfaces. Using soap and warm water, and washing all surfaces of the hands, fingers and wrist for 20-30 seconds work better than hand sanitizer. Wash your hands immediately after opening doors, shaking hands, pumping gas, etc. Better yet, use a paper towel or disposable gloves to open doors or pump gas and discard immediately, and avoid shaking hands to avoid exposure to COVID-19.

    2. DON'T TOUCH YOUR FACE. Do not touch your face. Avoid touching your mouth, nose and eyes, like the plague, pardon the pun.

    3. COUGH & SNEEZE PROPERLY. Sneeze and cough into your elbow to avoids spreading Coronavirus germs.

    4. USE HAND SANITIZER. If you must go out, carry an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with you for times when you cannot wash your hands.
    Tips on maintaining social distancing during COVID-10

    5. MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING. Practice social distancing. Stay 3 - 6 feet apart from others. Better yet, stay at home whenever possible. To avoid interacting with others, consider shopping online for supplies whenever possible, or use a shopping service to limit your exposure to Coronavirus.

    6. DISINFECT SURFACES: Decontaminate after going out with spray disinfectants. Use on your steering wheel and any seats or trunk where you place items. Spray the bottoms of your shoes before entering the house. Alcohol-based disinfectants seem to work well against COVID-19.
    Note: Spray disinfectants are not recommended for use on skin or clothing.

    7. DISINFECT  CLOTHES. Wear clothes you can wash and dry on the hottest settings. Drop your dirty clothes in the washing machine immediately without touching other surfaces. Wash on hot setting with a disinfecting detergent, put in dryer on hot setting, and put on fresh clothes immediately. Spray the laundry area with disinfectant to avoid contamination from infected clothes.

    8. PROTECT YOUR FACE Amazon carries a huge selection of Face masks, but these can be tricky to find. It has been widely reported that only N95 masks work against Coronavirus, and those are hard to find. It is easier to find Level 3 face masks and lower face masks, but even those face masks are difficult to find. I found a Level 5 face mask that said it had an N95 filter layer to stop bacteria, but it sold out before I could post it. Level 5 masks that have or allow you to insert an N95 filter might be decent protection, and they might keep reappearing as new stock comes in, so check back often if you need a few masks.
    Note: Please do not hoard face masks. Our medical professionals need them desperately so please stay home and avoid getting out rather than stocking up on masks.

    Painters masks also might afford some protection.if you can find filters for them that block organic matter like bacteria and germs.

    9. PROTECT YOUR EYES. Since there is evidence COVID-19 can transmit through the thin membranes of the eyes, eye protection is also important. Amazon also carries a wide assortment of Safety Googles, such as these basic safety goggles They also have safety glasses that look like normal glasses if you don't want to look like you are wearing goggles.

    Other items to protect the head, hair and face include machine washable baseball caps, shamaghs, nd even face shields,

    10. WEAR DISPOSABLE GLOVES: Disposable gloves are also important to have on hand for opening doors, pumping gas, handling trash, and other contaminated surfaces, as well as taking care of sick family members.
