I'd love to get glasses before school starts so how can I do this on a tight budget?

Costco or Walmart!: Both have optometry clinics in most locations. They have very reasonable vision evaluation fees and budget lenses and frames. Those are the cheapest places i've seen. If you just need reading glasses, light prescriptions are available over the counter at local drug stores. ...Read more

Having a c-section for placenta previa. Was told to get to hospital 3 hours ahead to get prep for surgery. What will they do? What takes so long?

Having a c-section for placenta previa. Was told to get to hospital 3 hours ahead to get prep for surgery. What will they do? What takes so long?

It always takes time: Any planned surgery takes time: there's paperwork, a pre-anesthesia evaluation, a monitor strip of your baby's heartbeat, prepping the site of surgery, etc. In addition, you must remember that with ob, you may be at the "mercy" of other situations with greater urgency. For example, if the need for an emergency c-section arises for another patient, they'll go first - as is appropriate. Good luck. ...Read more

Make sure your health is ok for this by checking w/doctor first. Peace and good health. Avoid boredom by listening to something w/earphones. Boredom can be a detriment to workouts. Quiet is wonderful and we need more. Whatever works. ...Read more

What happens if I was to look straight into the sun during daytime, how long would I need to be staring at the sun to go blind?

Not long: Staring into the sun is painful and is difficult, if not impossible, for most people to do. In the few cases I have seen, the length of time was seconds to minutes and resulted in damage to the retina. ...Read more

How can I get a toned body without going to the gym? (i don't have time)

It usually takes about an hour, again, each individual case is different. It is usually not covered by healthcare plans. It is usually an outpatient procedure.

Different for all: This will depend if you had reconstruction or not. You may have to consult with your surgeon and plastic surgeon to find out their specific instructions. My motto with my patients: "if it feels good, it is okay to do". I like to encourage people getting back into their normal routines. Exercise is great for recovery. You may want to start with walking and then work back up to running. ...Read more

A few weeks: You may start light exercise in 1-2 weeks. You may gradually increase activities over the next 4-6 weeks. To reach full activities it may take about 2-3 months. However other factors need to be taken into consideration such as reconstruction, any untoward complication and if there is any need for chemotherapy. Your surgeon will be able to give you more specific answers based on your situation. ...Read more

One visit: Hi jule. In my office it's one visit regardless of the shape your tooth is in. It's about an hour to an hour and thirty minutes using the cerec system. With a good dentist, it's quite easy. Beware of a dentist who says it's not as good. With the cerec system you will get state of the art technology, a precise fit and great aesthetics. One visit, one shot, no goopy impressions or temps. ...Read more

How long to spend at the gym and how to get a 6 pack?

How long to spend at the gym and how to get a 6 pack?

Remember: It's not just how long you spend at the gym. It's also, and more importantly, how you spend the time at the gym. 20 minutes of focused high intensity exercise can be much more beneficial than an hour of very leisure activity at the gym. Aiming for around 30 mins is reasonable, but keep on moving. "6 pack" abs come more from optimizing your diet(and weight) rather than excessive core exercises. ...Read more

Mom should date again but is shy about it. Says guys want younger ones. How can I get her to go out again at 50+?.

Not your job. : Is she active? Does she have friends? As long as she is engaged in life, it is not your role to tell your mother how to live it. However, if she says she is afraid to leave the house, or is no longer doing activities she used to enjoy, encourage her to speak to her doctor. ...Read more
