~Blog Post~Happy 2013 to All!
Whew! 2012 flew by on winged feet, didn’t it? For Christmas, my husband gave me a remote keyboard and mouse, along with an HDMI cable, which he hooked up to our big television screen. I’m writing this post right now using these new toys, and it’s kinda fun.
I’m on the computer for hours and hours and hours, as I’m sure most of you are, too, and my vision (which has been steadily declining since my first pair of glasses at age 11), is now to the point of ridiculous. I now have three pairs of glasses: Reading, Computer, and Distance. I tried progressive lenses a couple of years ago, and was never happy with them, so now I’m trying different lenses for different jobs. I have to say, I may go back to progressives, just so I don’t have to put my reading glasses on to keep the food on my plate in focus. For those of you with 20/20 vision, thank your lucky stars!
Here's a little addendum, since I've had some folks comment that their optometrist doesn't think computer use has an effect on eyesight: Computer Vision Syndrome (and there are optometrists now who are aware of this and try to help you out with it.) One of the major symptoms is inability to re-focus from a close-up to a far-off view as quickly as you used to do (this is definitely me). Also, dry eyes (my ophthalmologist said it's because we tend not to blink as often, so we don't moisten our eyes enough, which causes headaches and eyestrain.) Here's a link to one of MANY sites which dedicate a page or two about this phenomenon. AMERICAN OPTOMETRIC ASSOCIATION
