Eye Health Education

We have all been told by someone at some time, “You’ll hurt your eyes if you do that!” But do you really know what is or is not good for your eyes? Test yourself with the following true or false statements and see how much you know about your eyes. Reading in dim light is harmful to your eyes False. Using your eyes in dim light does not damage them. For centuries, all nighttime reading and sewing was done by candlelight or with gas or kerosene lamps. However, good lighting does make reading easier and prevent eye fatigue. Using computers can damage your eyes. False. Working on computers or video display terminal (VDTs) will not harm your eyes. Often when using a VDT for long periods of time, just as when reading or doing other close work, you blink less often than normal. This reduced rate of blinking makes your eyes dry, which may lead to feeling of eyestrain or fatigue. Try to take regular breaks to look up or across hem room. Looking the objects farther away often relieves the feeling of strain on your eyes. Keep the monitor between 18 to 24 inches from your face and at a slight downward angle. Also consider the use of artificial tears. If your vision blur or your eyes tire easily, you should have your eyes examined by an ophthalmologist.
