Virtually Real

The emergence of new technology is always creating exciting new experiences, and right now, the audio-visual world is booming, thanks in part to faster processors and better software. While this has a ton of applications for a variety of industries, it seems to be...

Higher-Order Aberrations

I love fantasy, I love gaming, and I love Dungeons and Dragons. You’ve probably heard a lot about the game, at this point; it’s embedded itself deep within the culture consciousness because nerds like me started to write television shows. The game has three key...

Blepharitis

My mother has incredibly bad allergies. She’s taken prednisone in order to reduce the symptoms for years – those who know the side-effects of prednisone understand how bad her allergies have been. It’s not a drug that’s prescribed chronically lightly. Some...

Eye Candy

Wouldn’t it be lovely if candy provided all of our essential nutrients? Pop a Tic-Tac into your mouth and your body has all the resources it needs for the day; sounds great! Unfortunately, science isn’t quite there yet; as it stands, we still need to eat a wide array...

A New Year, A Fresh Perspective

2019 is finally here. That means the next decade is next year, and if you squint, you can almost see it; imagining that future, you’ve got 2020 vision. By the time many of you read this, you’ll have already committed to and, to be honest, probably broken some New...

I don’t think you’re ready for this article. Well, okay, I do think you’re ready, but I’d already paraphrased Destiny’s Child in the title, and I didn’t feel like I could stop there. We’ll keep the Bootylicious references at a minimum for the rest of the post. We like...

How to Clean Your Glasses

I’ve got a friend who almost never cleans his glasses; he’ll get rid of the smears and smudges maybe once a month. When asked why, as a nearsighted person who needs glasses to be able to operate at all, he opts not to clean them, he gave an interesting answer. It’s...

Eye Colours and You

There are so many beautiful eyes in the world, it’s enough to make you weep. And if you do weep, the color of your eyes will probably look different, if only for a bit! That’s because there’s a lot of different factors that can change exactly how your eyes look; the...

Alcohol and Your Eyes

Drinking can be a lot of fun, but it can also be quite the opposite. Hangovers the next day, bad decisions all night, stumbling about in an attempt to get to the washroom; a night of liquid courage can be pure chaos! Some would argue that all that chaos is part of the...

Hyperopia and Myopia

You’re out and about, and your friend points out a beautiful bird they see up in a tree. You look where they’re pointing, but you can’t see a bird, despite their insistence that one is out there. Seconds later, the bird flies from the tree towards you and your friend,...
