Buying Your Eyewear is now Just a Couple of Clicks Away

by

Stuart Wallace

In the 21st century, our life is becoming more and more convenient than before. Indians, now instead of surfing stores for hours for a particular product, buy it online. Drawn by the facilities offered by the web and the diversity of products available on it, Indian netizens have emerged as the third biggest credit card users globally for online purchasing, next only to the Turkish and Irish e-shoppers. Easy availability of plastic money is another reason behind it.

This trend is evident in the field of eye wears also. The ways to buy them have also changed drastically. Earlier, eyewear users used to visit the clinic of the eye doctor and spend a good amount of money on their eyewear. But now, each kind of eyewear whether it is prescription contact lenses, eyeglasses or sunglasses are available online.

But why buying eye wears online is getting popular day by day? Here we go:

It is quite convenient to go shopping online with the development of e-commerce. Most young people are regular online store visitors. Therefore, shopping eye wears online is more convenient for them.

Cheap prices of online eyeglasses are attractive. Usually, they are much cheaper than those at the local optical stores. Online retailers can offer such low price because they buy eye wears in bulk and they don t have to bear any overhead cost. And when there are some great festivals, they will offer customers more discounts. For someone, who likes to keep up with the trend and buy eyewear on a regular basis, online optical stores can be a cool alternative.

Last but not the least, buying eyewear online is a huge timesaver. If you purchase eyeglasses from the local eyeglasses stores, you may have to spend the whole afternoon in several stores searching for that perfect pair of eyewear. On the other hand, you just sit at your computer to choose your dream pair of eyewear while buying online. If you get confused, you can always consult the online customer care professionals to get the solution.

For these very reasons, more and more people are tending to purchase eye wear online. People with very busy lifestyle and youngsters are getting hooked by the efficiency and convenience of shopping from the comfort of their own home. Shopping

Sunglasses

online provide me with a lot of options to choose from and I can also compare the price on different sites says a happy looking Romit Kalra, VP in an MNC. Young generation always likes to try new things and they bring more vitality to the life. Now, buying sunglasses online has become their new choice. Buying my contact lenses online saves a lot of my time, money and effort , says Shruti, a 1st year student.

And, here are some tips which you will find handy while buying the perfect pair of eyewear online:

a.

You must have a prescription which should not be more than one year old.

b.

Check forums and fraud alert sites for any potential problems with the online eye wear provider.

c.

Beware of pricey add-ons.

d.

Visit an eye doctor to find a frame or lens you like, then search for that particular frame or lens online. You can even replace if it does not fit properly.

e.

Never disclose credit card and personal details.

f.

Please check all the procedures, conditions and offers before purchasing on any e-commerce portals online.

The online opticians can provide both men and women with the hottest frames, shades or lenses as well as the trendiest looks when it comes to quality eyewear that is also affordable. However, we cannot be sure whether a pair of eyewear will fit properly, because it is not like buying clothes which we can buy according to size. It is difficult for people to know the right size of eye wear for themselves because there is great difference in every individual s heads and eyes. Therefore, we need to consider carefully when buying online.

There are various e-commerce online portals that provide you with options of purchasing eye wear online. Try lenskart, the biggest online eyewear store of India. They are famous for their unbeatable price and fast delivery. You can choose from top notch brands like Johnson & Johnson, Bausch & Lomb, CIBA Vision and many more.

Preparing For Death

Click Here To Find Out More About:

Submitted by: Jeanne May

Death is a topic many people try to avoid thinking and talking about! I know it’s uncomfortable, emotionally laden, and it isn’t the easiest to contemplate. But the fact is, no matter how much you try to avoid it — it will eventually find you! No one escapes!

I’m a psychologist and for about 15 years was a loss and grief counsellor and educator… so I’m well aware of how death is not the most popular conversation item!

But the thing is… when you are faced with the imminent (or sudden) death of someone you love you are most likely experiencing a multitude of thoughts and emotions. And then you may have to make decisions about things, like the funeral, which are highly charged emotional stuff … and it can turn into an emotional nightmare if nothing has been discussed.

Now I’m not saying that talking about death, making your wishes and desires known, finding out what your loved ones want as well, will take away the pain of bereavement… but it can go a long way to help people deal with what is already a difficult time.

And remember that by talking about death, by making a few decisions now, by doing a few things now, will not make your death happen any quicker!

A few things things you can do now:

1) Have you got a will? Too often people don’t make a will… it’s something they don’t get around to doing; they have a belief that if they write a will they are also writing their death sentence (I’ve had that said to me a number of times); or they argue what’s the point in writing a will when they haven’t got anything to leave. A will is important. And they are easy to do — they don’t have to be complicated. Forms are available so you can even do it yourself.

2) Once you have made your will — put it in a safe place and let people know where it is. I have seen a number of families not able to begin to deal with things (the practicalities involved after death) because they do not know where the will is and nothing can move forward until the will is read.

3) Update your will particularly when your circumstances change e.g. birth of a child, a divorce, change in asset wealth, death in the family.

4) Do you know what funeral director you would like to be used? This is something that you can make a decision about now without making any commitment (e.g. outlaying money). I know many people say they don’t care and that it can be decided by families when the time comes, but it is much easier for those left if they can be guided by what you would like.

5) Do you know whether you want to be buried or cremated? Again this can be a difficult decision for families to make particularly if there are differing views within the family. If they can be guided by your wishes it can make the decision easier.

6) If you’re going to be cremated… do you know where you would like your ashes to be put? In reality, your physical body won’t know a thing about it (note I said physical body) but if you have a favourite place it can be useful for family to know.

On this point… be careful about saying things like you want to be put under the orange tree in the back garden. If ashes are placed at a home it can be difficult for family members to move away from the home e.g. if the house needs to be sold at some stage.

7) Have you thought about this scenario… if you die a long way from home e.g. overseas, interstate, do you want your body returned home for the funeral? This can place a huge burden, both financial and emotional, on family members. Let people know if it is okay for them not to bring your body back but maybe your ashes.

8) Have you thought about organ donation? If you die suddenly, in an accident for instance, your family may be asked to consider donating your organs. Now that can be an enormous decision for family members to make particularly if they have got no idea how you feel about that! Organ donation is a major issue in Australia because there are nowhere near enough organ donors. Many people I have spoken with over the years have said that they would like to donate their organs but they haven’t told anybody or made it official!

These are just a few practical things you can begin to think about and do. It is not morbid to begin to plan for your death… death is a reality. And once you have have done these things, and let your thoughts and wishes known to people concerned, you don’t have to think about it again. And it is easier, much easier, for family members in the long run. I know because I recently went through this with my dad.

Historic ‘Tree of Knowledge’ dies in Queensland, Australia

Wednesday, October 4, 2006 

The tree said to be the birthplace of the centre-left Australian Labor Party, the Tree of Knowledge, in Barcaldine, Queensland has been pronounced dead by a tree doctor.

In May the 200-year-old tree was poisoned with up to 40 liters of Glyphosate, the main ingredient in the herbicide Roundup.

“In May we noticed the leaves falling off it. Now there are no leaves and the limbs are up there in the air just like a ghost,” caretaker and local ALP president Pat Ogden said.

According to party mythology the first branch of the ALP was founded under the tree in 1891 by protesting sheep shearers. They were confronted by 1000 soldiers and police for the colonial government and felt threatened of attack. Eventually their leaders were arrested and replacement workers were brought in.

Mr. Ogden, said on ABC radio, referring to the future of the tree “…it really hasn’t been discussed yet, but the general consensus is that we’ll prune it right back and leave the main part of the tree there and, sort of make a monument out of it…The council are trustees of it, so it’ll be up to them to make a final decision.”

However those who fear that this may be the death of the tree’s DNA have nothing to fear as there is an offspring tree called Young ‘Un which was cut during the centenary of the protest and is in the Australian Worker’s Heritage Centre in Barcaldine. Local leaders and agricultural officials are trying to create a nursery to create seedlings for sale. The project is still in its trial stage after difficulties in getting the plants to prosper. The Department of Primary Industries are using both grafting and cloning techniques to aid the project.

“If we are successful we could have one in every botanical garden in Australia,” says the Mayor of Barcaldine, Rob Chandler.

Tourism for the town increased as people wanted to see the tree before it died.

Mr. Chandler is proposing a farewell ceremony which he hopes will attract many of Labor’s highly distinguished.

Police are investigating the poisoning.

The ALP has posted an $AU10,000 reward for any information that can help catch those responsible.


380 million year old fossilized trees found in New York, USA

Thursday, April 19, 2007 

Two fossilized trees with their roots, trunks and heads still attached, and are said to be over 380 million years old, have been found in the state of New York inside a rock quarry near Gilboa, New York in the USA.

Researchers call the extinct tree a Wattieza and this particular tree stood over 30 feet tall and used spores to reproduce rather than seeds. It may have even looked like many palms trees that exist today, but did not have any leaves. Instead they had fronds much like a fern.

“These were very big trees. Our reconstruction shows them to be a lot longer and much more treelike than any of the reconstructions before. I don’t think any of us dared think of them being quite that big,” said paleobotanist at the State University of New York at Binghamton, and one of the researchers who studied the tree, William Stein.

Over 130 years ago in 1870, the same kind of trees, but only the stumps, were also found in Gilboa after flood waters caused the stumps to be exposed. A few decades later in the 1920s, another set of stumps were found in the same area.

In 2004, the researchers found a top to one of the trees that weighed almost 400 pounds not too far from Gilboa.

Researchers say that these trees likely shaped the forests of Earth as we see them today, and that the trees existed long before dinosaurs were roaming the planet.

“In forming the first forests, they must have really changed the Earth system as a whole, creating new types of micro-environments for smaller plants and insects, storing large amounts of carbon and binding the soil together. The rise of forests removed a lot of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. This caused temperatures to drop and the planet became very similar to its present-day conditions,” said the leader of the research team, Christopher Berry.

Wattiezas were most common during the Devonian period and existed on the planet before fish evolved sufficiently to leave the seas.
