Have you ever thought about what it must have been like to have bad eyesight during a time when there was nothing available to you that could help? Things that somewhat resembled the eyeglasses of today have existed for several centuries, but when you think back to medieval times or even times before Christ, the thought of having to navigate life whilst being practically blind is daunting.
If you have bad eyesight, you might have been one of the beggars on the street. You wouldn’t have been able to work many trades, if any at all, so just for an ailment as common as less than stellar eyesight, you’d be kicked to the curb and an outcast to society.
Thankfully you live in a time where bad eyesight has hardly any impact on your day to day life. Even though it’s not a big deal, eye related issues can still have an impact on day to day living for people. The effects aren’t as dramatic, but they’re annoying or issues that need to be solved, nonetheless.
If you’re currently having eye related health issues, here are some options for you and your ailment:
Get Glasses or Contacts
If you’re having vision problems, the simple solution is to get corrective lenses that will solve it. The catch is that you’re going to have to decide what is right for you. You can get glasses, you can get contacts. What is going to suit your body and your lifestyle?
You could even get both, as many often do, because you can’t wear contacts 100% of the time and glasses are always nice to have if/when something goes wrong. In any case, if you have vision problems, schedule an eye appointment and go from there.
Solutions For Dry Eyes
The eyes are a sensitive part of the body and various factors can affect how they feel, especially pertaining to dryness. The weather might give you dry eyes, but it could also be the vitamins or lack-thereof in your body that’s contributing to the problem.
Regardless of if you wear contacts, glasses, or neither, get yourself some lubricating eye drops to aid in the production of moisture, take some Omega 3 fish oil vitamins, make sure you’re drinking enough water and getting enough sleep, and try switching up your regular eye routine. If that means wearing your glasses more or always wearing sunglasses, try it out and hopefully you’ll see things start to turn for the better.
Eye related problems are never fun, as they affect your day greatly. Thanks to modern medicine, any issue you’re having is likely to have a solution. Keep an eye on things (pun intended) and if troubles persist, call in a professional option.
