As we age, changes occur in our vision that may lead to a number of conditions, such as cataracts and presbyopia.

A cataract is an opaque or cloudy area that forms within the eye's lens, making vision difficult. Cataracts occur with aging or trauma. The treatment for cataracts is to remove the lens and implant an artificial lens, called an intraocular lens (IOL).

Recently, Nintendo has been promoting a new game package for its handheld DS system. The package, called Flash Focus, is a series of exercises for your eyes, ostensibly to stave off vision loss that occurs as we age. Very popular in Japan, Nintendo is hoping to target a different sector of the American market with this product. The question is: if you want better vision, can eye exercises help?

Refractive surgery program policy changes

5/24/2007 - WASHINGTON (AFPN) -- Air Force officials have changed the policy to allow people applying for aviation and aviation-related jobs to have had LASIK surgery. The change became effective May 21. The change also removes the altitude and high-performance aircraft restrictions for people who have had LASIK.

The decision to make these changes was based on studies that showed there was little to no effect on LASIK-treated eyes when subjected to the wind blast experienced during aircraft ejection or exposure to high altitude.
