Are you thinking about getting contact lenses? You are not the only one. According to the American Optometric Association, more than 30 million people in the United States wea…r contact lenses. However, before those 30 million received their contact lens prescription, they had to take a contact lens exam. The exam is necessary in order to provide you with the best type of lenses. After you take the contact lens exam, you'll see the world in a whole different way.A contact lens exam aims to evaluate multiple elements. These include the shape of your eye, your vision correction needs, and how often you will use the lenses. If you've never worn contact lenses, your eye care professional will show you how to use your lenses and take care of them.A contact lens exam is less comprehensive than a regular eye exam. Your eye care professional will probably recommend both exams. An eye exam will allow your eye care professional to determine if you have any eye infections or diseases, some of which you may not even be aware of. A contact lens exam, on the other hand, will only determine which contact lenses are best for you.You will need to schedule an appointment with an eye care professional nearest you. A contact lens exam can be conducted by an optometrist or an ophthalmologist. Most contact lens examinations are conducted by optometrist who have specialized training to assess how it may impact your eye's health. Ophthalmologists are eye surgeons and rarely fit contact lenses. Both are qualified to conduct eye tests and prescribe lenses.The cost of a contact lens exam will vary depending upon where you live, but generally it costs approximately $100-$200 U.S. dollars. Remember that you may be required to take other vision exams, which will bring additional charges.A contact lens exam is a necessary step in order for you to receive your contact lens prescription. It is generally painless, and it will help you learn how to use your contact lenses and take care of them. There are many eye care professionals that are qualified to give the examination, and the exam itself is relatively inexpensive. After the exam, you'll be on your way to improved vision.Contact lenses are an increasingly popular way for people to improve their vision. The American Optometric Association reports that more than 30 million people use contact lenses. Two thirds of those 30 million are women, and approximately half are 25 to 44-years-old. (MORE)
School can be stressful, and from time to time, you may find yourself performing poorly on an exam. Managing your stress levels is critical to your peace of mind, as well as y…our academic success. You need to learn how to cope with performing below your expectations by calming down, acknowledging the factors that led to your low exam score, and then promptly moving forward. Here are a few suggestions for how to move past a low exam score:First and foremost, you must acknowledge that everyone goes through failure, and in the scheme of things, it was just one exam. There are plenty of examples of the rich and famous failing classes, being held back a grade, or being expelled from school, only to surpass their peers. Albert Einstein, Bill Gates, Winston Churchill, and Abraham Lincoln are a few notable examples. Failure is often a prerequisite to success. Be sure not to let this disappointment keep you down. Have a good internal dialogue about how this setback is only temporary. It is only with perseverance and self-confidence that you can get back on the path to success.Do your best not to linger on your disappointment, and instead self-soothe. Proper stress management is key to avoiding anxiety and depression. These are very serious issues that can lead to bigger problems. If you are feeling anxious or depressed, take advantage of the counseling available on campus. Get some exercise or take the time to meditate. Take a hot bath or do something you enjoy, like writing or drawing, to decompress. The best success stories are often rife with setbacks.For your own edification, you will want to ask yourself what you think the factors were that led to your low exam score. Ask yourself if you studied an adequate amount. Be sure you are getting sufficient sleep and eating well enough to support healthy brain and body function. Perhaps you completed all of your homework and all of the required reading, but ask yourself if you have been skipping, or drifting off in class. Perhaps the exams are based more on lecture. There are different reasons for a poor test performance, and the more you know about why you did not do well, the better you can perform next time.If you feel you have done poorly on an exam, be sure to ask your teacher about possibly making up the test or obtaining extra credit. Express your interest in protecting your grade and your desire to grasp the material in the class. Some teachers are flexible and may be willing to help. If the situation calls for a make-up exam, make sure to take advantage of office hours to go over why you missed particular questions. In addition, keep in mind that many standardized tests, like the SAT or the MCAT, can be, and regularly are, retaken. You may have performed poorly, but you are not a failure. Mourn, but move forward and prepare for your next opportunity. There will be times when you won't perform at your highest standard. Bouncing back in the wake of failure is the mark of future success. Relax, and focus on gaining perspective and moving forward. If you can, retake the exam or inquire about extra credit opportunities. Avoid dwelling on the grade and instead ask yourself why you may have done poorly to avoid these behaviors next time. Have a bit of healthy fun or indulge in a simple pleasure for perspective. Hang on to your ambitions and see yourself through this small setback. Remember: things may not always go according to plan, but you are resourceful and capable of success. (MORE)
Annuities may come in various forms and shapes, but at the basic level what you need to really understand beside the specifics of your particular contract, is whether your ann…uity is qualified or non-qualified. The following will come in handy in this regard.Irrespective of whether your annuity is variable, fixed, or indexed, the most important characteristic in terms of identifying its true tax status is whether or not your original contributions are tax-deductible or not. Your annuity is qualified if your contributions are made with pre-tax dollars. Obviously, the opposite is true for non-qualified annuities which are funded only with money that has already been taxed. This is probably the most unique identifier of any annuity when it comes to identifying that annuity's tax qualification status.Does your annuity have a certain amount of money beyond which you cannot contribute in any given tax year? If it does, you have a qualified annuity because they must follow certain specific IRS guidelines for contributions that are linked to your income and age in any given year. Non-qualified annuities, on the other hand, have no such IRS limitation when it comes to how much you can contribute in any given year. You are free to contribute as much money as you would like, irrespective of your income level or age. However, don't forget that these non-qualified annuities only accept after-tax contributions.Another significant distinguishing characteristic of non-qualified annuities is that you do not have to follow the IRS-mandated minimum withdrawal rule that is associated with qualified annuities and many other retirement accounts. With a non-qualified annuity, you have the complete freedom to determine when and how much of your money you would like to access after age 59-an-a-half. Or you may even decide not to touch your money at all. But the situation is completely opposite when it comes to a qualified annuity. Once you have reached age 70-and-a-half, you must begin withdrawing certain minimum mandated amounts every year. Failing to meet this requirement carries a steep 50 percent excise penalty tax in addition to your regular income tax on the amount you didn't withdraw.With a qualified annuity, the entire value of your account is subject to income tax. That is because up until the point of withdrawal you haven't paid any taxes on the contributions and gains in your account. As a result, every time that you take a withdrawal throughout your lifetime, you must pay tax on the entire amount.With a non-qualified annuity, however, since your initial contributions are made with money that is already taxed, you are allowed to withdraw those original contributions tax-free. However, your gains are subject to taxation at ordinary income tax rates. A very important caveat to note is that with non-qualified annuities you are deemed to withdraw all of the gains from your account first before any of your initial contributions can come out.There is a special exemption that may allow you to draw distributions from your non-qualified annuity in which case a portion of each payment will represent a return of your original tax-free contribution. Contact the custodian of your account for details.Knowing and understanding the tax classification of your annuity is an important step but you should not ignore the other equally critical aspects of retirement planning. Your specific annuity contract may have certain rules regarding withdrawals and sometimes even contributions, beside the general IRS rules. (MORE)
Annuities have long been a popular option for many retirees. As is the case with any other investment vehicle, making sure that you understand the tax implications associated …with your specific kind of annuity is paramount because a seemingly simple breach of tax rules could result in catastrophic consequences.In the real sense of the word, an annuity simply refers to a series of equal payments over a specified period of time. Although many people only think of an annuity in terms of providing payments over a lifetime, that is not true in every situation. Payment terms range from a lifetime, to two lifetimes (when a spouse is involved) or much shorter. A qualified annuity is when you purchase an annuity with tax-qualified (pre-tax) money. In this sense, therefore, a qualified annuity is simply a means of distributing a given sum of pre-tax money.Generally speaking, the tax rules associated with your specific qualified retirement money that the annuity is associated with are what govern how you will be taxed. Since qualified plans are funded with pre-tax money and you also do not pay any tax on the growth during the accumulation years, everything that comes out of your qualified annuity will be subject to income tax at your ordinary income tax rate. So for example, if you receive a payment of $10,000 from your qualified annuity, that entire amount will be counted as taxable income. Keep in mind, though, that you still have to adhere to all of the other tax rules specific to qualified plans. In effect, withdrawals that you take prior to turning age 59-and-a-half, will generally cost you an additional 10 percent in excise tax penalty. On the other hand, if you fail to take your required minimum distributions, after age 70-and-a-half and beyond, you will be accessed a 50 percent penalty on the shortfall.Beside the tax rules on early withdrawals, keep in mind that most annuities generally come with additional surrender rules that may impact when you can draw your money penalty-free.As is usually the case with tax rules, there are certain specific situations that may alter the way things are generally done. So to ensure that you do not take any turns that may end up jeopardizing your retirement, be sure to consult with your tax advisor before making any moves involving an annuity or any other financial product, for that matter.

Stretch marks are a very common skin condition. Medically known as "striae distensae", they occur most frequently during pregnancy, but also in adolescents as they go through… puberty, weight lifters, and in certain medical conditions. Currently, there is no known treatment that completely erases stretch marks, but there are some treatments that have been shown to improve the appearance of them.There is a general belief that stretch marks in pregnancy can be prevented by aggressive moisturization of the skin. However, the tendency to get stretch marks in pregnancy is inherited and there is no compelling evidence that moisturizing will prevent stretch marks in someone who is genetically predisposed to get them. Weightlifters getting stretch marks should back off of their routines to prevent the stretch marks from getting worse. A rapid unexplained weight gain causing stretch marks needs to be evaluated by a physician. Stretch marks occurring in adolescents with no history of rapid weight gain tend to be less severe and improve over time.There is a lot of evidence in the medical literature that topical tretinoin (retin-A) improves the appearance of stretch marks when the stretch marks are new and are still red in color. However, pregnant women getting stretch marks should not use this treatment until after delivering their baby due to the concern that application of this medication during pregnancy could cause birth defects. Tretinoin, or retin-A has been used for over 30 years as a treatment for acne. It is available by prescription only in the United States. There is no other topical cream or medication that has been shown in a medical study to improve stretch marks.Several treatment modalities to improve stretch marks have been studied. Repeated chemical peels to the area has been shown to work in some cases. This requires fairly aggressive peeling and is risky for scarring and infection. Numerous lasers have been studied to determine their effect on stretch marks. The pulsed dye laser seems to have the best results, but other lasers such as the Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), fractional carbon dioxide laser, and ablative CO2 lasers have shown to improve the appearance of stretch marks. Most of these treatments work best on stretch marks when they are new. Once the stretch marks turn white, the only laser that seems to improve their appearance is a UVB emitting laser (Excimer laser) which increases the pigment in and around the stretch marks.Stretch marks are a very common skin condition. Seen most commonly as a result of pregnancy, they can occur for other reasons as well. To date, there is no medical treatment that completely removes stretch marks. Topical retinoids such as tretinoin cream (retin-a) are the only topical medication that has been shown in studies to improve the appearance of stretch marks. Chemical peels and lasers have shown some promise in treating stretch marks. (MORE)
