Can Botox Really Affect Your Vision? stars

Botox is one of the most popular non invasive cosmetic procedures offered, with millions of people seeking out the procedure to combat aging and fine lines. In the U.K., Botox and fillers make up for 90% of cosmetic procedures, and the market for the two are worth £2.75 billion. With such a large population seeking out the procedure, it’s important that the risks associated are discussed thoroughly, especially when it comes to your vision.

How Air Quality Can Affect Your Eyesight

40% of the world’s garbage ends up in the air* after burning thus releasing millions of toxins, according to an air quality study by the Global Healing Center. It is damning that inhaling this kind of air cuts off 1-2 years of human life. Most often, air in urban areas is more contaminated due to industrialisation. The eye is a very sensitive organ and irritants such as dust and smoke have both a short term and long-term effect. Short-term effects include itchiness, tearfulness, soreness and red eyes. On the other hand, the effects of overly long exposure to these dust particles, or smoke often lead to conditions such as dry eye syndrome as witnessed in areas adversely affected by air pollution such as Beijing, which has occasions of smog.
