We already have a thread about eyes here but this thread is going to be far more in depth and talking about the actual health of our eyes and how important it is to keep them healthy.
I think we underestimate how much we use our eyes, they need to rest just as much as any part of our body. Treat them well, turn the light up in the room if you’re reading. Rest them an equal amount to how much you use them (this doesn’t mean sleep, it means if you do 3 hours of reading, do 3 hours of something which isn’t so intense on your eyes). Because otherwise you can develop eye strain (I did).
Also never leaving the house is bad for many reasons but it is also highly damaging to your eyes. It’s why I need to wear glasses.
It’s 2020 so try to keep your vision 20/20. feel free to ask me eye advice I like to bug my optician.
I neglected every possible recommendation it seems, using PC/laptop since I was 12, having a job that mostly done on laptop, and drawing/writing on PC in my spare time, and sitting mostly in darkness, but my eye sight is perfect. I think a lot depends on genetics.
I wear glasses because I’m nearsighted, and because of my nearsightedness and my (intermittent) exotropia, I have to care for my eyes extra well. High brightness hurts my eyes, and I can’t see too far. I also have to regulate my font sizes.
I’ve been nearsighted since I was in 1st grade. I didn’t even realize that my sight had changed so much because I just thought that’s how I saw. Turns out, that I had slowly lost my sight over that year and it took a teacher noticing I was sitting on the carpet more often just to write down homework because I couldn’t see from my seat. I got glasses that year and I was surprised about how much I couldn’t see before. I eventually switched to contacts by the end of 5th grade. My eyes have progressed even more now since I moved into a group called progressing myopia’ s. It’s where the eyeball actually grows bigger causing the sight to be strained because the lens is being stretched out.
