Vision Care, Sri Lanka’s largest vision and eye wear solutions provider, is marking the ‘Literary Month’ which falls in the month of September by highlighting the value of reading for people of all ages.
Reading is one of the most important life skills that humans learn from a very young age. The Literary Month is a time of the year that emphasizes on the nurturing of the habit of reading. Sri Lanka has always been known for a very high literacy rate with reading being a popular leisure activity among adults and children. Research has revealed that reading regularly helps you to stay educated and informed, expands your perspectives of the world, enhances your creativity, improves your mood, relaxes your mind and body, while also boosting your analytical and critical thinking capabilities.
An important part of ensuring that you continue to read for life is keeping your eyes healthy. Age has a negative effect on your eyes and when you reach your 40s, the natural internal lenses in your eyes become less flexible. As a result, they can’t focus as easily from near to far vision as they could when you were younger. Once this natural lens becomes less flexible, your near vision tends to get reduced. It’s a condition called Presbyopia and is a natural part of aging.
Various challenges in your everyday life will indicate to you that your eyesight is becoming poorer. When you hold books and other reading materials at your usual reading distance, they appear blurry while holding them farther away may tend to make the text slightly clearer. You may have trouble reading smaller print in dim or even regular light conditions. There may be instances where your eyes hurt when you try to read or do other close work. At times, you may realize that you get a headache when you try to read and this may even keep you away from your favourite books and magazines.
All this indicates that it’s time you got yourself a pair of customized reading glasses. The first step to doing so is to get your eyes checked by an experienced eyecare professional. At Vision Care, you can get your eyes tested using state-of-the-art equipment that is handled by eyecare professionals with years of experience in the field.
