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?
