Check out the Rebuild Your Vision System!

You’ve probably heard of body language as a way of communicating true feelings. But did you know there’s also such a thing as eye language?

Researchers have known for years that pupil size is a major clue in determining a person’s emotional response, and can sometimes contradict what’s actually being said. If you want to know safe how your date honestly feels about you, look into his or her eyes. A larger pupil indicates a positive response, whereas a constricted pupil indicates a less than favorable reaction. Similar eye responses can be seen in reactions to food or other stimuli.

In the 1960’s and 1970’s, German immigrant and psychologist Eckhard Hess first researched the importance of the eye’s pupil size in response to emotional stimuli through eye measurements known as pupillometrics or pupillometry.

Let’s face it: the holidays can be stressful. Whether you’re elbowing department store crowds, wrestling strings of lights onto a tree that seems to grow an inch every second, or traveling over the river and through the woods on a cramped, airless seat in coach to get to Grandma’s house, you may find your holiday cheer fast disappearing.

This time of year, newspapers and magazines are filled with tips on how to get through the holiday season, but very few deal with that most crucial part of the body: the eyes.

Don’t file away those sunglasses in a drawer: In the winter months, the sun sits lower in the sky and at a different angle, which may expose you to more ultraviolet light and glare. The risk can be just as significant on gray, overcast days as on clear, sunny ones.
