It is a long known secret that drinking water as soon as you get up, i.e. before eating anything, is a good way to purify your internal system. One of the most important results of undergoing this treatment is colon cleansing, which enables better absorption of nutrients from various foods. When there is production of haematopoiesis, better known as “new blood”, you will have immense body restorative effects and you can even be cured of existing ailments. Drinking water the first thing in the morning has the following benefits:

1. Make your skin glow. Water is known to purge toxins from your blood, and as a result you get glowing skin.

2. Renew cells. Drinking water first thing in the morning increases the rate at which new muscle and blood cells are produced.

3. Balance the lymph system. When you drink water first thing in the morning on a daily basis, you help balance your body’s lymph system. Lymph glands found in your lymph system fight infections helping you to perform your daily activities. They also balance the fluids in your body.

4. Lose weight. When you consume about 16 ounces of water (chilled), you will boost your body’s metabolism by abut 24% thus help you lose those extra pounds.

5. Purify the colon. When you drink water after you have woken up before eating anything, you are purifying your colon thereby making nutrients absorption easy.

6. Cures illnesses and diseases. Drinking water first thing in the morning has been proven to cure illnesses such as vomiting, throat disease, menstrual and cancer disorders, eye diseases, diarrhea, urine disease, kidney disease, meningitis, TB, Arthritis, headaches among others.

How to drink Water in the Morning for Best Results

* Drink 1.5 liters (5/6 glasses) of water immediately after waking up.

* Avoid drinking or eating anything else for an hour before and after drinking the water.

* Do not drink beverages that contain alcohol the previous night.

At first, you may have a hard time drinking 6 glasses of water at a go. However, it becomes easier as your body gradually becomes accustomed to the routine. When starting, you can slightly modify the routine as follows; consume 4 glasses of water, pause for about 2 minutes, then drink the remaining 2 glasses of water.




Smart Glasses that allow the blind to see, could help 150,000 in the UK alone, by transforming the way blind and partially sighted people go about their everyday lives.

These incredible glasses uses glasses-mounted camera to project images onto eyepieces.

RNIB and Oxford University they just receive £500,000 funding, that will enable to create 100 pairs of smart glasses and test them with 1,000 people.

This will be the first large-scale test of smart glasses and augmented reality for sight enhancement anywhere in the world.  It’s the first step towards getting the glasses made available to everyone who needs them.

What it would take to get me to wear Google Glass on my glasses.

Glasses with Glass? Google’s latest design tweak to its wearable headsets is a smart move, but not quite enough to get me to leap.

Scott Stein

The latest design iteration of Google Glass is here. Unlike the weird headband-visor-with-a-monocle design of the original, there are now prescription versions of Google Glass: real glasses, on top of which are Glass.

I’m a glasses-wearer. I struggled with Glass on my glasses, and eventually even got temporary contacts. And I remember that, a year ago at Google I/O, some prescription glasses with Google Glass attached were floating around the show floor.

  • So am I satisfied with the latest news about Glass and glasses? No. Because, even if these new glasses with Glass attached offer up a less intrusive-looking, slightly more stylish and possibly more convenient solution, it’s not enough for me yet. I’m talking about wearing, mind you, not using — using them is an entirely different debate, and one that’ll keep shifting as the software and apps evolve. But if you’re asking me if I would really wear Glass all the time as anything more than an experiment, I’d need a bit more.

For it to be a comfortable wearable device for me, some other steps need to be taken. Here’s what I want Google Glass to do:

Work with my prescription
The lenses made by VSP for Google’s Glass glasses actually only work for -4 to +4 prescriptions. My -9 prescription is out of the question. That’s a shame, because, really, aren’t these new glasses meant to offer access to Glass for all?

Work with my own glasses
Buying a Google Glass-compatible glasses frame costs $225, and then you have to buy lenses, which may or may not be supported by your vision insurance. These are real glasses, but can have Google Glass screwed onto them. I want to use my own glasses. I like my own glasses. Buying a new pair is expensive. There are only four frames to choose from, and I have no idea how they’ll look on me. Google’s prescription Glass glasses are a good first step, but not enough.

Clip on and off
Bluetooth headsets are easy to pop on and off as needed. Screwing Google Glass on and off of these new glasses, comparatively, doesn’t exactly seem like an easy process. During the day, I don’t want to wear Glass at every moment. I’d want to pop Glass on and off whenever I feel like it, like I do when I take out my earbuds or remove a Bluetooth earpiece. I should be able to attach and detach my little Glass screen as I like. Wearable tech should be optional, not stapled onto your required eyewear. These eyepieces should be optional, more like a mini monocle. Use magnets, use a clip…be creative.

Be a lot smaller

Which brings me to this: Google Glass without the titanium headband-visor is small, but it’s long like a pencil or stylus. Most people look at Glass, see that little lens and camera, and think that’s mostly it. I wish I could pop that bit off and tuck it in my pocket. Easier said than done, but I’d love something akin to the Jawbone Era of Google Glass. That, of course, could take years. But the closer Glass gets to a Jawbone-sized minigadget — and the sooner — the better for me.

If those things happen…well, I wouldn’t mind wearing a Google Glass around at all. As far as buying one…that’s another story.


50,000 kids to get self-adjusting eyeglasses.

Nearly 100 million near-sighted teenagers in developing countries may soon be able to see normally without the need for specialist eye care as a project starts distributing specially designed glasses costing just US$15.

The Child ViSion project, which will begin handing out the first 50,000 pairs of their self-adjusting glasses in Asia this year, aims to provide affordable vision correction to all children who need it in the developing world.


The initiative, paid for by donors and sponsors, is run by the UK non-profit Centre for Vision in the Developing World. They hope that establishing long-term distribution schemes via schools will bring down the costs.

“There are roughly 100 million myopic children in the developing world who need eyeglasses to see the board in class. The Child Vision glasses are essentially an educational intervention to get them to see clearly,” says the project’s founder and director, Joshua Silver.

The prototype glasses are a smaller, lighter and more fashionable version of the adult model, Adspecs. Both work by the wearer pumping silicone oil into the lenses, which change shape, allowing the user to instantly adjust the glasses to their needs.

Self-adjusting lenses are not new. Companies such as Focus on Vision have developed glasses with specially designed lenses that are adjusted by sliding them back and forth.

But according to Silver, Child ViSion glasses are the only variable-power design based on clinically tested data.

In the tests Silver and colleagues measured how accurately around 1,500 near-sighted teenagers aged 12 to 17 in China and the United States used the self-adjusting lenses. They found 95 per cent of children achieved vision just short of normal when looking at the standard eye chart.

“That’s good enough to function in class,” says Silver.

But, Peter Ackland, chief executive officer of the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness, which leads the VISION 2020 programme along with the WHO, says the glasses are not a replacement for professional eye care.

“Our approach is to try to develop local services where you can get an eye examination at the same time as specs. If you bypass that, you’re going to miss fundamental eye problems that can cause serious problems later in life.”

In places such as Sub-Saharan Africa, however, there can be as few as one optometrist for every million people. Until that number increases, Silver says the glasses can be a useful temporary solution.

Smart lenses make spectacles accessible to millions.


Spectacles with variable lenses that can be adjusted by a wearer with no access to specialist eye care are being mass produced.

The first 30,000 pairs will be shipped to Afghanistan, Ghana and Tanzania by the end of the month.

Focusspec is the first self-adjustable lens to be produced in large quantities, though other similar glasses have been designed. The technology is expected to improve the lives of millions of adults in the developing world living with poor eyesight.

The spectacles were developed by Dutch industrial designer Frederik Van Asbeck, based on a discovery in 1964 by Nobel Prize-winning physicist Luis Alvarez. Alvarez designed a lens that was convex on one side and concave on the other. He found that by placing two such lenses on top of each other, and moving one relative to the other, the focus could be changed.

“The technology to produce those lenses with the needed high precision — an aberration of a micrometre will cause a headache — was developed only a few years ago,” Van Asbeck told SciDev.Net.

Anyone can adjust the strength of the lenses themselves, by turning wheels located on the side of the spectacles, eliminating the need for an eye expert.

Van Asbeck says Focus on Vision, serving the WHO’s VISION 2020 programme, will produce one million pairs of glasses a year in the Netherlands.

The glasses have been tested in Afghanistan, Cambodia, Ghana, India, Nepal and Tanzania.

“I see people’s faces light up when they adjust their spectacles and discover they can read again, take care of themselves, work, get an education,” says Jan in ‘t Veld, a board member for Focus on Vision, which undertook a large part of the fieldwork.

In ‘t Veld says the lenses are scratch-, UV-, water- and dust-resistant — and optically almost as good as the far pricier lenses used in Western countries.

Ben van Noort, co-board member and ophthalmologist, points out that Focusspec lenses can only be adjusted between +0.5 to +4.5 dioptre or -1 to -5 dioptre (most people wear between -6 and +6) and they are unsuitable for astigmatism. “Still, they work for 80–90 per cent of adults,” he says.

Lillian Mujemula, optometrist and main distributor of the glasses in Tanzania agrees: “Most of our clients live in remote areas, where there are no optometrists. People are very happy with the glasses because they are of good quality and easy to use. I believe people can wear them for many years.”

Brien Holden, professor of optometry in Sydney and chairman of the International Centre for Eyecare Education (ICEE) told SciDev.Net: “The FocusSpec has an important place as a stop-gap solution. But they cannot replace the long-term strategy of educating eye care personnel and creating optical workshops and distribution channels in each community in need”.

Holden also points out there is a need for proper scientific field studies, which ICEE is now in the process of designing.

The spectacles are expected to be sold at local shops, schools and health centres for US$3–5 a pair.
