There are many different factors that can affect your wellbeing; the most important one being your health. In particular, your vision can have a huge impact on your overall wellbeing. With poor vision, your quality of life can feel depleted and ordinary tasks can be much more challenging.
With that in mind, we take a look at some of the factors that can help to improve your vision and what effect that has on your wellbeing, as well as suggesting a helpful glasses guide, to make sure you’re getting the most out of your vision.
Being able to see clearly is vital for everyday activities, including the simplest of tasks like driving, reading or talking to people. Having poor vision can impact these daily activities, which in turn, can have a negative bearing on your wellbeing. By taking advantage of available solutions, such as lenses, you can eradicate these vision issues and enjoy a more comfortable life.
Preventing Headaches and Poor Posture
If you suffer from headaches, it could be due to a problem with your vision. Uncorrected vision, such as refractive errors, can lead to straining and squinting your eyes. Eye strain means that your eyes are having to overwork in order to try and see clearly.
This can be incredibly uncomfortable and straining your eyes usually results in frequent headaches. If this sounds familiar, or you have problems seeing things close up or far away, then you should see your local optician for an eye examination.
By wearing tailored lenses to suit your vision needs, you can reduce the occurrence of headaches and prevent future eye strain.
Similarly, poor vision can sometimes be attributed to poor posture. Changing your posture so that you can see clearly can affect the muscles in your neck and shoulders. Wearing the right corrective lenses allows you to see close up objects clearly without having to adjust your head and trunk declination so you adopt a natural posture for a more comfortable experience.
Squinting or having to change your posture to look through your lenses could mean that you need an updated pair of spectacles. Previous designs of varifocal and single vision lenses force you to move your head to see through the right part of the lens. This often leads to posture problems which can have a bigger impact in your everyday life.
Comfortable Experience when using Digital Devices
Modern lives are often dominated by the use of digital devices, from small screen smartphones to larger laptops and televisions. If you frequently use digital devices, you might experience some visual and postural discomfort.
Your eyes are constantly trying to focus on the pixels of your digital screen, as your screen constantly refreshes your eyes have to refocus, which can be tiring for your eyes and also lead to eye strain. This can have a detrimental effect on your overall wellbeing, particularly if you rely on digital devices for work.
Help your eyes to focus better by investing in lenses that have been specifically designed for digital screens. Lenses for digital use can help your eyes can prevent and reduce eye strain so your eyes do not have to work quite so hard through the day, which in the long run is great for your vision health.
Reflections and glare can occur when bright light bounces off of a flat surface, such as the road, snow or a body of water. This can be debilitating for your vision, causing major discomfort, distraction and sometimes even temporary blindness. If your hobbies include fishing, driving or skiing, you may experience glare and in turn some trouble with your vision.
Not being able to take part in simple tasks like driving without being blinded by glare can be a huge inconvenience. However, you can improve your vision in these conditions by investing in lenses that have been specially designed to reduce glare.
Modern lenses that include polarised technology are now available to help reduce reflections and glare. Likewise, you can also invest in a lens enhancement such as anti-reflection coatings.
