KC and the weather
Permalink   
 


Please put here your impressions on how the weather influences your vision.


I understand that the quality of light impacts the pupil size and thus the vision.


I understand the humidity of the air may influence the refraction of the air and thus the vision.


I'd like to understand how otherwise our, KC, vision may be influenced by the weather. For example, atmospheric pressure, when it is low, does it mean that the eye pressure is high? Or low? How the eye pressure influences our vision? And in fact what is the physical/physiological mechanism of what is known as the eye pressure?


Any refernces are welcome! Thanks!

LOL Your a joker!


What little i know about the weather aspect is that when there is high presure (in the atmosphere) then the weather turns out to be fine...


When its low pressure (in the atmosphere) the weather is not as good.


The reason... well... with low presure in the atmospere... this bring the clouds closer to the earth and when there is very low presure the clouds come down near to the ground and causes what is commonly known as "fog"


Now... with more clouds in the sky this causes more scatter of light as the light bounces around more with the clouds present... so causing more bluring to vision than on a fine day.


Not too hot on eye pressure... but on one of Lynn's old posts she says that eye pressure is not linked to the bodies own pressure as one thing that can be said about eye pressure which i heard a professional say.

Hi Yarsky. For me the metheorological phenomenon most critical to my vision is wind. It dries out my eyes and fills my eye (and RGP) with nasty dirt-particles. I truely hate it

HI Magnus, yes that is realy maddening.


So in general I may say, that  my recent increase in astigmatism that I live through is a progress in my KC, not the effect of the weather.

I am finding that raining weather really bothers my KC. It makes my left eye the worse one get a headache. I left for vacation to the opposite side of Canada (ontario) it was nice and sunny and hot for 2 week. My headaches above my left eye went away. I returned to Vancouver and it was raining the minute I got off the plane. My headaches have returned.

Gloomy days bother my eyes. I prefer sunny days and sunglasses
