Choosing To Improve Your Vision

I have never been one of those people who is overly concerned about my looks, but when it came time to decide whether or not to get glasses, I was mildly concerned about looking like a nerd. I didn't want to appear pretentious or weak, but I knew that I had to do something to fix my vision. I had struggled with eye problems for years, and I wanted to be able to see without squinting. After meeting with my optometrist, I realized that I was worried for no reason. I have been able to enjoy better vision because of my glasses, and I know that you can improve yours, too.

Eyes Too Tired to Read Fine Print? Strengthen Them With These 2 Easy Tips


If your eyes are so tired that reading product labels, magazines, or even newspapers is a chore, take time to strengthen them. Eye fatigue, or strain, is a common eye problem that can cause many symptoms over time, including headaches. Some adults might even experience dizziness and sensitivity to light when their eyes become too tired to focus. You can strengthen your tired eyes with the two easy tips below.

1. Improve Your Quality of Sleep

You probably already understand the benefits of getting a good night's sleep. The proper amount of sleep improves your ability to think, work efficiently, and meet the challenges of life. But if the quality of your sleep is poor, it could affect your vision over time.

Poor sleep quality can make the muscles in your eyes weak and tired. Your eyelids might become droopy, heavy, or twitchy. You can also lose the ability to concentrate or focus on small tasks, such as reading a book or browsing the Internet. 

Most adults require about 7- 9 hours of sleep during the night to maintain a strong body and good vision. If you spend most of the night tossing in bed, getting up to urinate, or thinking about problems at work, try sipping on warm milk or tea to feel more comfortable. You can also take a warm bath or shower right before bedtime to help you sleep better.

If your eyes don't improve after improving your sleep quality, consider wearing reading glasses.

2. Use Adult Reading Glasses

Reading glasses allow you to see small lettering, images, and pictures. Because reading glasses come in different strengths and focusing power, it's a good idea that you see an optician for your glasses. An optician can test your eyes as well as help you choose reading glasses that work best for you.

In addition, you can select reading glasses for different situations to help you see clearer. For example, if you dine out or travel a lot, you may need traveling reading glasses to make your experience more enjoyable. If you love to sit out in the sun and read, you may need reading glasses with tinted lenses. Tinted lenses not only allow you to read in direct sunlight, they protect your eyes from ultraviolet rays and other things that may make them worse.

If your tired eyes won't improve no matter what you do, visit an optician in your area and request reading glasses to help you see better, clearer, and safer.
