Sang Min- Contact Lens

Contact lenses (or contacts) are thin layer of lens placed directly on to the surface of the eye. Contact lenses are mostly considered as a medical devices.

There are three types and purposes of contacts. The three types of contacts are hard (rigid) lens, soft lens and disposable lens. The three purposes are for cosmetic, therapeutic and correcting eye vision.

Cosmetic contacts are designed to change the appearance of the eye (mostly the eye color). The other name of cosmetic contacts are decorative contacts. The therapeutic lens are like a bandage on your eye. It allows the injury to heal. It is also called pain relieving lens. The correction lens are designed to correct or improve the vision. It is done by focusing the light so the light enters the eye with more power to clear vision.

Hard or rigid lens are not really comfortable to use because it doesn’t allow much oxygen to go in to you eye. This is why a lot of people who uses hard lenses have a lot of clinical issues. Soft lens are more recently invented. It’s more comfortable to use because it allows more oxygen to go through. Disposable lens are lens that lasts for 1 to 30 days. It is mostly soft lens.

I chose this topic because this relates to me well because I have contacts. I just wanted to know why it hurts sometimes and what causes it. It affects teenagers because I know some people uses contacts and wanted them to know too. I learned that hard rigid don’t allow oxygen to go through and how the correction lens work.¬†

Isabella- Scoliosis


Scoliosis is when there is an unnatural or abnormal curve in the spine. There are many types of scoliosis, but I’m only going to talk about 3 ūüôā

  • Idiopathic
  • Congenital
  • Neurological

Idiopathic is the most common Scoliosis. It is when there is no definite cause as to why the person developed Scoliosis. Congenital is when spinal deformities appear at birth, which means that the person was born with Scoliosis. Neurological Scoliosis is when brain abnormalities affect nerves and muscles in spine. Scoliosis can happen at any point in time, but it usually starts at around adolescence age.

This affects teenagers, because we’re at that age where Scoliosis begins to form. If Scoliosis does end up happening, it can affect our daily life. If you’re into sports, it would be painful for you, and it would be harder to play. As pre-teens/teens, we should be aware of this topic, so that we know what could happen to our spine.

To solve Scoliosis, doctors have three different treatments (well more than three but that’s all I’m going to list!). The first thing that they can do after they find out that their patient has scoliosis. The doctor might put you in a brace. It’s basically a cast that you can only take off when taking a shower. The next thing that the doctor could do, if the Scoliosis is really severe, is suggest surgery. The last thing that he could do is an Observation. This is where he/she does nothing, but ask you to come back for daily check-ups. None of these treatments will exactly make the scoliosis go away, but it will definitely decrease how sever it is.

To prevent Scoliosis, never carry heavy objects, because it makes you hunch, and could form that “S” shape spine. Always stand up straight and have good posture, because even though it wont make you safe from Scoliosis, but it will definitely help decrease the chances of you getting it. Check your spine regularly to make sure that your spine is healthy.

This relates to me, because my mom actually has Scoliosis. Since Scoliosis is genetic, there’s a very big chance that I’ll be getting it also. I found this an important topic that I should about, so that I could understand what could really happen to me if I don’t start caring about my spine. I learned a lot of things researching about this topic, and I’m sure that I’ll be standing much straighter after this!




Khullat – Oxygen Particles

Hello Readers,

Today going to write about oxygen particles! Oxygen particles are inside injections. When injected into the blood stream they release Oxygen particles to flow oxygen through the blood stream with out the need of the person being injected to breath! For now they last 15- 30 minutes each helping doctors have a much better chance of healing the patient!      Here are a few: 

  • Acute lung failure
  • Blocked airway
  • If CPR is doing no good
  • Surgical procedures are not working
  • When Oxygen levels are dropping
  • When Chances of survival are futile,etc ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†It has saved countless lives and is going to save many more!
