Eye Care For You
Preservation of good eyesight is almost impossible without proper eye education and mental relaxation. The quieter the mind better is the eyesight. To use your eyes correctly follow the following instruction
General hints for Eye care
  • Learn right blinking. Blinking is a quick method to give rest to the eyes. Also, blinking keeps the eye moist. The lachrymal glands under the upper eyelid produce an antiseptic fluid that cleans the eyes. While reading blink once in every line.
  • Keep your eyelids half closed, while reading or watching a distant object. Even while looking upwards the upper eyelids should not be raised but only the chin.
  • Turn your head in the direction in which you are looking.
  • Shift your glance constantly from one point to another.
  • Sunlight is best source of light. However do not let the sunlight fall directly on the paper you are reading. While using electric light, see that the light comes from the back and falls on the paper.
While reading
  • Hold the book at a distance from where it is seen best.
  • The book or newspaper should be held under the chin so that the eyes are half closed.
  • Move your head from side to side while reading so that the word you are reading is directly under your nose.
  • Mentally make a note of the fact that printed matter is black and the paper is white.
  • Blink once in every line.
  • Read in proper light.
  • Do not lie down and read. Also do not read in moving vehicles.
While writing
