Are There Glasses For Programmers To Block Peripheral Vision
Maybe so: Computer programmers have needs that are different from other computer users. Age and need for glasses also play important roles. The stronger the prescription need, the more peripheral distortion exists. There are several glasses that come either with "blinders" or wrap-around lenses. Your optometrist or optician can likely build or modify a pair of glasses to accomplish your goal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can you tell me about peripheral vision, however are vertical or horizontal prisms used for peripheral vision loss?
For motion detection: Central (macular) vision detects fine detail and colors. Peripheral vision has poor resolution but is highly sensitive to motion - it is your warning sensor for possible threats out of the center. Prisms affect both central and peripheral vision at the same time, so no prism will only change peripheral vision. Prisms are used to compensate for doubling; not a peripheral issue. ...Read more

What are the best lenses for strabismus? (exo) are toric or multifocals better? Doctor said there can't be surgery at this stage. Also, are progressive/bifocal glasses better than single vision?

However, any lens that gets you to your best corrected vision will help but i usually recommend staying away from multifocals in lazy eyes. If you still have a muscle problem--this should be addressed by a strabismus surgeon. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Will "close work" (e.g., computer at work, reading, etc) be impactful to peripheral lattice retinal degeneration? Or only for myopia progression?
Not likely: There are some animal studies that suggest that intense near work in children could enhance myopia. I don't believe that mechanism is still at play by age 41. There should be no impact on lattice degeneration from computer work or reading. Lattice degeneration per se does not progress. What changes in the eye is the state of the vitreous gel and its relationship to the lattice. ...Read more

See an eye doctor. : Well, lots of things cause vision loss but the fact it seems correctable is good. You should see a eye doctor to really see for sure but, given your age, the two most likely culprits are cataracts and presbyopia. Usually cataracts give people better near vision initially but not always. Presbyopia, or aging of the lens, is most likely and necessitates reading glasses and sometimes distance glasses. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Are there any glasses that could correct the vision at least 50%?
I have albinism with eyes problems: nystagmus, astigmatism, photophobia.
Probably not: Vision in albinism is limited by the effect of the lack of pigment on the central vision which is permanently lowered.
