Insight From The Eyes Reading

By Reece Mathews

Your eyes reading should always use the correct lighting. As you grow older it is hard to read under certain conditions. Your eyesight can get better if you read in the correct lighting. I’m going to be talking about eye exercises and how they can improve your sight and take the tension off of the eyes.

You abuse your eyes when you have poor lighting when you make an attempt to read. These habits start at a very young age and keep up with us through the adult years.

You don’t exercise your body when it is tired, just like you wouldn’t want to read when your eyes are tired. The eyes respond to work being done on them right away. So make sure you are well rested before reading anything. If you are comfortable you can read longer and better.

Let’s examine how you are sitting when you read. You should sit up straight with your head in an upright position. When you make an attempt to read with bad posture, you can damage your eyes. It is the muscles that put a strain on the eyes when you don’t sit up straight. Good breathing exercises help out your eye when you read.

Hold the stuff you are reading 12 to 14 inches away from your eyes. Tilt the book up so that your head isn’t straining. If you have a reading table this is when it is a good idea to use it.

People hold the book farther away when they are far-sighted. Take the book and hold it nearer to the eye. This aids the eyes for better reading.

How is the lighting in the room you are in? Make sure the light shows on the full page that you are reading, reading while it is shady or dark is not a good idea and puts great strain on the eyes.

Try sitting next to a window for natural lighting or using a 60 watt bulb. Avoid florescent lighting. Make sure that the light is going over your shoulder and falls on the page. Don’t ever read directly facing the light. If you’re not sitting next to a window, then you should use 150 watt bulb.

Learning how to read is just as important as learning how to read in the proper lighting. Reading at a fast pace is not good for the eyes. It doesn’t give the eye the chance to absorb the content in the book and causes a great deal of strain on the eyes. The eyes have to shift naturally and when you read fast this does not happen. People pride themselves on being able to read fast, but your eyes are put under a great deal of strain. A woman had worn glasses for 40 years and this was able to be cleared up by reading slower. An eye reading fast just isn’t a good idea.
