One of the most popular programs over the past ten years is MythBusters - a show dedicated to uncovering the truths and falsehoods behind myths, urban legends and the unknown. Using carefully controlled experiments and basic scientific principles, MythBusters delivers the answers we're all looking for - even for questions many of us haven't ever considered!
At Zenni Optical, we've done some research of our own. We set out to get to the bottom of some of the most popular vision and eyewear-related myths we could get our hands on and the result is enhanced clarity and a less hazy vision of the truth surrounding these classic cautionary tales.
At some point, you must have realized that it was time to take care of your hazy vision and purchase contact lenses or eyeglasses. We'll bet you can still hear that voice in the back of your mind saying, "don't sit so close to the TV or you'll ruin your eyes!" Or "turn on a light while you're reading so you don't destroy your eyesight." Maybe the age-old adage of eating loads of bright orange carrots just didn't ring true for you - explaining your lack of perfect vision.
No matter what your perceived rationale is for your loss of 20/20 vision, you may be surprised to find out that bushels of carrots and megawatt lighting probably wouldn't have had any impact on your eyesight over the years. Read on to see which of the most common eye-related myths are true - and which ones are just a little out of focus.
