As we age, it is almost inevitable that our eyesight will slowly diminish somewhat. This can be a very frightening misfortune! Our eyes are quite arguably our most important attribute, as we use them for just about everything we need to do, everyday. So you can imagine that whether it’s a slow and steady loss or vision, or an abrupt impasse, no longer having control over your eyes would be an extremely traumatizing experience!! While there is not much to do about reversing this process - except invasive surgeries - there are small changes that can be made to help you see better, longer. Furthermore, it is more likely than not, that you simply don’t know what it is that is taking away your ability to see properly: cataracts, macular degeneration, glaucoma, etc. It is important that above all else, you go get your eyes checked as soon as you can to ensure you know the exact antagonist that you’re dealing with!
Once you’ve seen your doctor, there are a few small things you can do around your house, work, and in your daily life that will assist you in seeing correctly again! If you notice that you tend to need more and more light when working on certain projects at home, it is likely that your pupil no longer has the ability to open as widely as it once did, and therefore there is less space for light to enter. Without this light coming in, your retina has trouble processing the act of seeing, and therefore you vision is diminished a bit. So, the best way to help in situations like this is to install small lighting fixtures around the house under certain cabinets, or above countertops, etc. These additional fixtures will offer you the assistance of lit areas for you to get back to work! If light is your biggest problem, it can be accommodated no matter where your irritation occurs: home or work! You can easily install these lights all throughout your home, and in your garage (if that’s where most of your projects take place).
