The changes in eye-ball coincide with the process of ageing and cause the light suppression on retina, therefore the question is: in which lighting conditions the elderly workers are characterised by an efficient vision. The visual efficiency of young and elderly volunteers in 100-750 lx illuminance was assessed. Research results showed, that for elderly people the illuminance level had meaning but even for 750 lx, the visual possibilities of elderly people were much lower than of young people. Then, the illuminance level uplift may not be the single way of improvement of elderly people visual work.

The aim of this paper was to summarize up-to-date data on the new emerging nicotine containing product 'electronic cigarette', commonly referred as e-cigarette. We presented data on prevalence and popularity of various brands and models on domestic markets. Development of the new products with technical and chemical modifications was also described. We reviewed studies on chemical composition and efficacy of nicotine delivery from e-cigarettes and discussed its potential use as nicotine replacement for tobacco cigarettes. Regulatory policies on e-cigarette sale as nicotine containing product were also discussed. We concluded that e-cigarette might be an effective harm reduction tool but little is known about its safety, especially when used for a long time. Despite many positive findings from surveys among e-cigarettes users, there is need for comprehensive state-of-the-at clinical trials to show efficacy of e-cigarette as smoking cessation tool.

In this letter to the Editor, the authors comment recent publications about the attempts to remote realizations of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in the treatment of anxiety disorders in elderly. The distinguished clinical situation is a part of a wider problem that can be named as global crisis of aging populations. The use of CBT in many geriatric clinical situations is very effective, however, such therapy is very time-consuming, what hamper its widespread utilizations in practice. The authors therefore propose to support this form of treatment by determining so-called therapeutic tasks. They derive the rationale for the proposed method from the analysis of the acting elements of various, new forms of CBT in combination with the analysis of sources of psychological resistance (resilience) of those older people who are doing well. The essence of the method proposed by the authors is assigning tasks which facilitate to patients remembering of their trajectory of life. The patients are then much more aware of unresolved psychological conflicts. The next tasks aid the patients to search for solutions to such mental problems and create a balanced imagery of their lives.
