Stay Healthy, Protect your EYES

Many Jamaicans love to be on FACEBOOK for long periods of time around the computer or have to work long hours doing a lot of reading. But many Jamaicans do not love wearing glasses, do you? Well, you might have very good reasons to feel bad whenever you’re advised to wear reading glasses. And one of them might be the fact that you think the people who wear glasses look silly and are nerds. You may also think that only computer techies who read a lot of books wear glasses. To be cool you need to have sunshades or no glasses at all.
 
But what if you cannot move around for the whole day because you can’t see well or you make mistakes in presentation because you can’t see the words.
 
 
Well luckily for all Jamaicans there is a simple solution, get your eyes tested and get glasses if recommended by the optician.
 
Our eye lenses contain strong fibers. Over the years, the cells on the eye lenses congregate and overlap, and fibers star
 
t to grow elastic. Soon you start to squint at the newspapers or books or anything else that you read. To cure your eyes of this squinting-gaze-syndrome, you need reading glasses!When your eyes start to feel strained whenever you are reading something or even watching the T.V., go to an Optometrist and have your eyes checked up. The doctor will offer you the prescription for glasses or contact lenses. But if you are already wearing glasses, you need to check whether your 'power' is changing or not. For most people, the power of their eyes keeps on increasing, and therefore it is necessary to pay the eye doctor another visit and get a new pair of eyeglasses.The other sign that tells you loud and clear that you need to have your eyes checked by the eye doctor is when you are holding the newspaper or book or magazine far away from yourself to read. You try to hold it as far as the outstretched hand of yours will allow, and at one point of time, even that will not be enough. Then you will have to pay the Optometrist a visit, and get for yourself a pair of glasses.
 
When last have you had your eyes tested?

Well... I think, I need glasses because its hard for me to look at my PC screen, or even simple as a stringing a needle. I know its quite expensive and I personally think I would look wearied.

I wear reading glasses, but you would never see me in them hahahahaha. But it's really interesting that people need to be told to get their eyes checked often enough and I guess it falls in line with the general outlook of young persons as it regards the status of our health - we are simply not concerned right now because with youth comes vigour and fitness, health issues usually occupy the minds of the elderly. But I read a lot...books, magazines, newspapers etc. With the advent of the internet we find that we spend so much time staring into the computer screen without being the least bit concerned about harmful effects of rays or even the amount of light in the room that is supposed to be deflecting these rays etc. etc. etc. The point is very clear still that it is crucial that we stay on top of this health issue for our eyes as well.
