Eyes are the part of human body that play an important role in transmitting information to the brain, detecting light, focusing, and thus helps us to see. Seeing is such an important function in the human body that it usually requires the involvement of around half of our brain. The muscles around the eyes are the most active muscles in the body. Eyes are the most precious sense organ, so do care for them.

Myth Busters (Click on myth to know the fact)

Myth:You can wear your eyes out.

Fact: Eyes do not wear out, they just get tired. You can use them as much as you want!

Myth:You do not need to have your eyes checked until you are in your 40s
Myth: Wearing eye glasses are a sign of the eyes being unhealthy.

Fact: Wearing eyeglasses does not have anything to do with eye health, but rather with normal changes in parts of your eyes.

Myth:Wearing poorly fitting eyeglasses damages your eyes.

Fact: Although a good fit is required for good vision, a poor fit does not damage your eyes. While in retrospect, poorly fitting contact lenses can be harmful to your cornea.

Myth:Wearing glasses will make you dependant on them

Fact: Glasses do not cause deterioration of your eyesight; they are just a tool to help you see well. Off course, once you see the difference that glasses make in your vision, you would want to wear them more often.
