I have been following Sumiko Tan's features for a long time as I find them very entertaining and as I can relate to them very well. They simply resonate with me. And very often I think to myself 'yup, been there, done that'.
Yesterday's article 'Coping with middle-aged eyes' made me chuckle yet again. I remember my times, when I could hardly see anything and how thrilled I was after having done Lasik surgery. And just like her, I am now starting to feel the eyes getting older (of course, just the eyes, not me! ;-)).
However, contrary to her, I got help from Orthovision. And although I did once purchase those reading glasses, I have now opted to do regular eye exercises and my vision has improved again. It is a pain sometimes, and you need to do it regularly, but it does help!
Dear Sumiko and 'middle-aged eyes friends', give it a try! Do your eye exercises daily, limit the time spent on the small mobile devices, practice the 20-20-20 rule (when reading or spending time at the computer, look up every 20 minutes and focus on something 20 feet away for 20 seconds). You will be amazed by the results!
