Horizontal Vs Vertical Stretch
Can someone tell me the difference between horizontal and vertical stretch marks? Which ones come from gaining weight and which ones come from growing taller?
Either: In general stretch marks appear as a result of increased tension on skin from rapid changes in weight or growth. Horizontal stretch marks on the back are usually from growth in height. Vertical stretch marks on abdomen or thighs are usually from weight gain. Axillary striae can be from either cause. ...Read more

You have options: You see these mostly in tall guys in their rapid growth spurts. They'll be red at first and then fade some. A dermatologist with a laser can make them fainter but I suggest that you consider keeping them for now -- somebody special in your future may like them, and tall is fun.

Can't answer: In general with osteoporosis bone loss you lose bone density in both the horizontal struts and the vertical trabeculae. The cause of the bone loss, the resorption canals are in all of the trabecular bones horizontal and vertical.

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.

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
