Today, spectacles have been a part of many people’s lives. Everyday I see more and more people wearing more of prescription glasses. This includes kids, teenagers, men and women. Studies have shown that from the early nineties till now, the prevalence of myopia has nearly doubled. Could this be the results of our 21st century way of life where people dwell late into the wee hours of the nights staring at computers and exposed to the harmful radiation, or that studies are getting more challenging these days that resulted in the practice of peering at books for hours? Does the proliferation of games on computers, phones, tabloid and etc. also add to the tension on our eye sights? I believe these are the well-acceptable causes of our eye problems in this 21st century.
Your eyes are an important part of your health. If you spend a lot of time at the computer or focusing on any one thing, you sometimes forget to blink and your eyes can get fatigued. Try the 20-20-20 rule: Every 20 minutes, look away about 20 feet in front of you for 20 seconds. This can help reduce eyestrain.
For those diagnose with myopia or long sightedness, it is important that you get yourselves a proper set of prescription glasses to aid your reading and daily viewing. If you are worry that you might look weird on glasses and dislikes wearing contact lens, worry no more. Today, glasses are more of a fashion than a viewing aid. You will be surprised that there are countless of spectacles, designer spectacles, for your choosing.
Remember, maintaining healthy eyes is important. Wear your glasses to avoid over-straining on your eyes.
