What’s Its About?

The human body is remarkably easy to damage and break, and no more so than when participating in strenuous physical activity such as sporting or athletic activity.

Physical therapists work to undo damage, educate on healthy behaviour and to restore lost or damaged functionality. Physical Therapy Day, then, is dedicated to these professionals throughout the world, and aims to recognise their commitment to keeping us all fighting-fit.

Physical therapists often work out of physical rehab centers – not to be confused with drug rehabs.

Tips For Eye CareEye Care, Healthy Eyes

The eye is one of the most important and sensitive organs of the our body. You need to take good care of them. It is therefore imperative that you seek the help of only highly qualified professionals when it comes to taking care of your eyes. So, what are some of the key considerations that you should make when choosing your eye doctor?

When it comes to treating eye diseases, one should be very careful who they go to for this service.

Depends on the health of your eyes, you may opt for a specific type of eye specialist. For instance, you may need to seek the services of an ophthalmologist if you have vision problems or complicated eye diseases. Alternatively, you may look for the services of either an optician, or an optometrist, if all you need is basic eye care.

An ophthalmologist is a doctor who specializes in medical and surgical care of the visual system and the eye. He also looks in to prevention of eye diseases and eye injuries. In other words, an ophthalmologist is qualified for providing total eye care, which means that he can offer eye examinations, surgical and medical services, diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases, as well as deal with visual complications that result from health conditions such as diabetes.

An optometrist, on the other hand, is an eye doctor who is trained to examine, diagnose, treat and manage some eye diseases and disorders, as well as the visual system. They can examine the eye externally and internally for signs of glaucoma, cataracts, and retinal detachment. They are also trained to treat nearsightedness, astigmatism, farsightedness and presbyopia, on top of testing eye coordination, focus, and colour detection. However, they cannot perform surgeries.

Opticians, who work together with optometrists and ophthalmologists, are health care professionals who provide vision services related to the vision problems. They are the final part in the chain of complete patient care, be it before, during or after eye exams and surgeries. Their role is to interpret and analyze eye prescriptions and then go ahead to determine the eyewear lenses needed by a person for vision correction, including overseeing the ordering process as well as the verification of delivered eye products.

When choosing the right specialist for you, look at their training and qualifications, their years of experience, the track record they have, as well as whether they are licensed to operate in the town or city where you live by the relevant boards and authorities. Your choice eye care doctor should show a genuine concern for the well being of his patients. Ask around in your neighborhood for a referral or from friends and relatives for the best eye doctor in your area. Treating eye diseases is not just about getting eye surgery or medications for your eyes, but is a combination proper care, diagnosis, treatment and maintenance so that you retain good vision for the rest of your life.

If you are in the Ahmedabad area and seeking a specialist to care for your eyes, you can visit Eye Doctor Ahmedabad and determine if this doctor has the qualifications you are looking for and seems like someone you would be comfortable with. Then, go ahead and book an appointment.

World’s First Solar Geo Plant in Nevada

Solar Geo Plant in Nevada

Electricity is something most, if not all of us take for granted every day. We rely on it for our comfort and also for convenience. To generate this electricity we need resources, some reusable and some not.

For the first time ever, Enel Green Power has set up a power plant that generates electricity from both geothermal and solar energy.

The project started in 2009 with Enel Green Power’s 33-megawatt geothermal plant in Northern Nevada, USA. This plant runs on geothermal energy from hot water trapped underground. Given that the area also receives a lot of sunny weather, the company decided to conduct an experiment by installing solar panels across the plant’s dry landscape. The result now is a plant that runs on both solar and geothermal energy, and it is the world’s first hybrid solar-geothermal plant.

Solar facility

The solar facility provides an additional 26 megawatts of energy to the plant. It makes sense to combine the two renewable sources of energy to generate electricity. By using these combined resources, plants can generate electricity 24 hours a day, with the solar panels providing the most electricity during peak hours. When there is cloud cover, or during the night, the geothermal energy comes into play, as it is not dependant on the changing weather the plant can depend on it to generate electricity at all hours.

With the world switching over to greener means of electricity generation, this hybrid plant sounds like a wonderful idea. Of course, it may not be a viable means of generating electricity everywhere, it is certainly one solution to replacing nuclear plants.
