How to Maintain Your Sight
Everyone should know how to preserve vision. In order to preserve vision, you must be aware of the complex measures that will serve as effective prevention of many diseases.
First, in order to preserve vision, you should read with the right amount of light. This will prevent your eyes from over exertion.
The light source in the process of reading should be above and slightly behind the reader so that the light shines over the shoulder. It is not recommended to read when light is shining on the face.
Room lighting where a person reads should be pretty bright. If you try to read at you’re your vision may deteriorate. The working surface should be located so that a window or other light source is located on the left.
Artificial sources of electric light, for example, reading lamps, must be covered. Otherwise the direct rays of light would be cutting your eye. Also while reading, it is better to leave a desk lamp turned on which creates a smooth transition from less intense to more intense light.
Light that is too bright blinds the eye and causes a surge of view. As a result, the eyes get tired quickly. In addition, reading in the car is harmful because of theshaking. This is because the text is located at different distances from the eye every time it shakes. In order to preserve your vision it is very important to maintain the correct distance between the eyes and the text. The best distance to read is at a distance that farther than thirty centimeters. When considering anything from close rangeyour muscles tighten and your eyes get tired again.
Modern society cannot imagine their lives without computers. Unfortunately, computers not only facilitate our lives, but also cause harm to the eyes especially for people who are constantly working behind the monitor. To remove the tiredness from your eyes at the computer Dr. William Boothe recommends performing a few simple exercises.
During work, the computer monitor should be located no closer than arm’s length. In addition, the monitor should be placed on the desktop so that when you look up, you could see all objects in the room. After forty minutes of work at a computer monitor you need to take a break and do light exercises. This includes frequent blinking, during which the eyes can relax and moisten up with lachrymal gland secretion.
To prevent the development of myopia you should expose yourself to ultraviolet rays. In the case of a lack of ultraviolet rays, metabolism of the absorption of phosphorus and calcium in your body is insufficient. For this reason, the ability for your eye to adapt is reduced. Under the influence of sunlight and vitamin D, which is found in skin cells, the normal proper absorption of phosphorus and calcium in the body becomes active.
Dr. William Boothe believes that proper nutrition plays a huge role in how to preserve vision. This includes the necessary amount of vitamins, in particular the “eye” vitamins such as A and D. Vitamin D is foundin products such as beef liver, sea herring, egg yolk, and natural butter.
Vitamin A is essential and is responsible for the ability of the eye to see in the dark. A deficit of this vitamin upsets visual acuity, affects skin tone, and will make you vulnerable to inflammatory processes. Vitamin A is found in abundance in cod liver oil,cream, and eggs. There is such a substance as a precursor of vitamin A called carotene. Carotene is needed in the human body for the synthesis of vitamin A. Carotene is found in carrots and lots of bell peppers, dog rose, onions, apricots, and lettuce.
