DOES THE PUPPY SEE OR SMELL FIRST
Alexandra, a behavioral scientist said it very well..."dogs see past
us." In that, what do they really see she asks. First, the nose
points the way and then detects the smell simultaneously. The eyes
see the direction it emanates.
Does the Puppy see color the way in which we see color. Place us
both in a room with only one color entering the room(orange). We
view the color of our skin as pale. We see the vase in the corner as
blue; the curtains white. Does the pup view everything as orange?
Your Pet sees the day in a "cadence" of events, oblivious to colors.
Their color cones in the Retina are so dispersed... is it concerning
to them or just the movement? In contrast to sight/movement their
primary activity is a series of moments; an hour, a minute, day or
month and the freshness or decay of the object.
Walking the Puppy it's nose and tail are in continuous sync. Again,
do the eyes really matter. Question: Does the UVB radiation at
ground zero matter or is it just absorbed without notice of the
damage it will do to the Retina?
In conclusion, it would be responsible of us to give our best Friend
a little insurance with Sunglass UVB protection when---we wear
The WHO (World Health Organization) state 23% of the population from
age 43-64 will develop *AMD; 56% of the population from age 65-84.
AMD will triple over the next 25 years. It is the first cause of
blindness in the World.
* Age Related Macular Degeneration
Johns Hopkins found Women are 60% more prone to Vision Loss than
Men. See why?
Why These Statistics
Todays UVB Radiation, not UV is not filtered out by the Eye's
natural defence filters (Crystalline Lens, Aqueous and Vitreous).
This UVB 'blue light' passes directly into the Retina and it's
toxicity leads to retinal cell death and early Cataracts.
Dogs and humans experience the same fate.
UVB blue light is high energy light (see chart)* similar to UV
light; the former being high particulate matter made of O2 & N2.
Johns Hopkins states only UVB radiation now "binds" to our DNA;
affected the most are: Kids, Seniors, LASIK recipients, women more
than men, athletes and those wearing dark UV Sunglasses.
Is Obamacare Vision Loss, the #2 Health Expenditure a collective
reason for the latter? Is America wearing the wrong Sunglasses.
Vision Loss drains an enormous financial on the Health Care System.
It is the highest Health cost of any disease category--greater than
Diabetes, all Cancers combined and Cardiovascular disease Vision
Loss cost Americans $150 billion every year and $40 billion of which
results from lost productivity from unemployment and
Everyone bears these Health Costs.
Seniors; you have no worry about the new Google Glass, Google is
attempting to market . Why? It's just too cool for you. But you
Boomers, think about a few threads of common sense.
With all the Electronic devices on the market (Tabs, Pads, IPhones,
Laps, etc.) researchers for the American Medical Association have
come up with some new findings. J. Carroll/AMA has stated these
devices collectively emit enough LED 'blue light' to cause
drowziness and Sleep Apnea. The body's melatonin is depleted as a
result of this 'blue light'. Strapping on a Google Glass is an
accident waiting to happen. Why??
* Eyeglass wearers with high myopic Rx's will suffer image
replacement when their line-of-sight shifts outward
* Early Bifocal/Progressive wears will not adapt
* Persons with Amblyopic squints where one Eye deviates outward or
inward involuntarily will not adapt
* Melatonin depletion has surprising effects on the
convergence/divergence of the eyes
Inspite there is Prevention of 'blue light' effects on this web
site...is this Glass what we really need.
THINGS YOU DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT YOUR DOG'S VISION
Dogs, what do they really see and why protect their Vision
Dogs align their nose to look at you... their Eyes go along for the
ride. Their Vision acuteness enables them to see details we miss. A
dog's eyes actually compliment their other senses. They see around
us and past us- this is part of their gaze. We, on the other hand
stare at them not around them as they do. Dogs see objects and smell
objects around and past us.
Physically their eyes are located more peripherally towards their
ears - why? for panoramic viewing 270 degrees versus our 180
Ever wonder why they can nab a Frisbee with ease; it's their
photoreceptor (rods) that are widely distributed and the speed they
are activated for vision. Near objects are secondary interest to
them because of this photoreceptor distribution peripherally (near
Toys he ignores since he can't see it).
Our near vision relies on the fovea. This retinal area has millions
of photoreceptors (cones) for color vision. A Pug has much less than
we; a Greyhound even less. This is why the Pug will retrieve the
ball quickly to you on command (he aims to please) while the Great
Dane will simply ignore the ball.
All light enters their fixed Pupil size of 3-4mm in diameter. The
human eye has a 9mm diameter Pupil size upon full dilation (open)
and a very small 1mm pupil constriction (closing) for UV and UVB
Unfortunately the dog's fixed 3-4 mm Pupil allows in all UVB and
what's worse... they get twice that amount than us since light hits
their Retina twice (redoubling the image they're viewing). A dog's
visual system has no natural defenses against UVB radiation nor do
we.. hence it "binds" to the DNA (the WHO).
Dog's are most sensitive to "blue" and "yellow green" light. We,
react best to Red, Blue and Green. Guard dogs will attack a Blue or
Red object quicker than other colors.. Their days are numbered with
the many outdoor activities they endure from the new UVB blue light
All dog's see past us and around us. This is part of their gaze. We,
on the other hand stare at them, not around them. They see objects
and smell objects around and past us.
Signs and Symptoms of Vision Loss
- less reaching, grabbing, pawing, & playing with other dogs
- avoid or don't react to loud or the smallest noise
- missing a dangerous moment
- lethargic, reluctant walks in the park
- milky Eyes
What is "blue light"
It's the kids LED video game
It's dads iPhone, tablet, e-reader
It's grandfathers new post Cataracts---IOL Implants
and...it's your pet dog's worse enemy---UVB "blue light"
Why Pets(dogs) have the same optical system like us
They have absolutely no protection from todays "blue light" and with
todays larger Ozone hole, it's the UVB rays, not UV rays that are
giving them unprecedented early Cataracts. Some breeds and sizes
develop the latter as early as 3 years old (our
photoreceptors, the rods & cones are not present at birth but will
develop later). If the Pup is obese and sedimentary, early diabetes
and cataracts are a given.
Kids who fall asleep with their favorite LED video games suffer from
Sleep Apnea and Vision fatigue. When they use any Electronic device
more than 6 hours/day their Melatonin(regulates mood, cognitive
function and memory) during the night affects their sleep cycle
called the circadian rhythm. Kids will follow their parents' habits
and addiction with these devices and yet are short of recommending
The grandparents have now an option to anti-blue light IOL Implants
with blue blocking properties, which, can wear OFF with the tear
UVB Photochromic Sunglasses that act to block the "blue violet
light" is the ultimate protection. Other solutions are Nikon Rx blue
blocking coated lenses. Any coated lens runs the risk of wearing
UVB Photochromics are ---laminates.
UVB Photochromic Lenses are FDA approved
They meet US ANSI Z80.3 standards as well as European EN 1836
