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 more
When you look at someone's face, you can still see their hand, even though you are not looking directly at it. When you are walking through a doorway, you are not looking at the sides, or looking directly at the threshold, but you see it through your peripheral vision. Anything outside of your direct focus spot, is considered peripheral. Which can be measured ...Read more
My peripheral vision is better when I wear glasses instead of monovision contacts. Why would that be?
Monocular vision : The convenience of being fitted in monofocal contacts is to lessen need for glasses, at the compromise of reduced stereopsis (binocular vision). However, I find improvement in peripheral vision when wearing contacts for optimum distance (binocular) vision, versus glasses. Each contact lens individual determines whether the reduction of stereopsis is satisfactory for their daily functions. ...Read more
My eyes always feel fatigued. On a computer, without glasses (-3.00) my central vision is blurry, but I notice my peripheral vision still looks clear.
Side Vision: When you look at someone's face, you can still see their hand, even though you are not looking directly at it. When you are walking through a doorway, you are not looking at the sides, or looking directly at the threshold, but you see it through your peripheral vision. Anything outside of your direct focus spot, is considered peripheral. Which can be measured by "visual field examination". ...Read more

No, but...: Peripheral visual acuity (sharpness) can not be improved, but you can learn to pay better attention to it. Team sports like basketball and soccer are a great way to improve your ability to use your peripheral vision as long as you force yourself to try to see the whole court or field at the same time. ...Read more

Peripheral vision: Auras are visual manifestations of neurological symptoms. Flashing lights are one type of aura people report seeing, and these auras often appear in either eye. Migraines are a common cause of visual disturbances, such as flashing lights, but these uncomfortable visual symptoms can be the result of other physiological conditions as well. Anxiety, retinal disease, htn, and seizures may be an issue. ...Read more
Flashes: A bright light in your peripheral field can signify traction (pulling) on the mid-peripheral or peripheral retina. These can be warning signs of an impending or evolving retinal tear/break. Symptoms such as these are best evaluated with a dilated retinal exam. Please see your provider for evaluation. ...Read more
Few causes: Htn, optic nerve inflammation called neuritis, including drug induced op. Neuritis-multiple scelerosis, glaucoma or intraocular HTN with HTN inside eyeball, migraines, inflamm/detachment of retina which is the inner most of the 3 layers of eyball, etc. You need to get examined by eye dr. Asap to get ruled out of the above including space occupying lesions of brain, like mass with imaging scans. ...Read more
