Sight is one of the 5 senses of a human being, therefore, it is vital to keep your eyes healthy and protected. As I researched online for apps that can help manage this care, I came across this article that I found very useful.
Check out the interesting article and apps that accompany it, but do read on to learn about what I found in my search to keep our eyes healthy.
Improve Your Vision with Glasses
Not too long ago, if you started to have blurred vision while driving or reading a book you would need to make an appointment with an optometrist to get a prescription for glasses. Although that is still an option, there are now apps that can accurately test your eyes for the corrected vision adjustments.
Moreover, there are apps that allow you to match your prescription with the frames you like the most and have it all delivered to your door. What if you have glasses, but you can’t remember the exact prescription details and you want another pair? No problem, there are apps that can scan your lenses to give you the original prescription. Ultimately, you can test your eyes, pick out frames, and buy the latest fashions in eyewear without ever having to leave the couch.
How to Have Healthy Eyes
Furthermore, you might want to know of ways to give your eyes a break or keep them healthy. There are apps that can tell you about what kinds of healthy food focus on vision health. For example, foods like fish contain rich sources of omega-3 fatty acids or eggs, which can reduce the risk of sight loss due to age. By learning about what foods and vitamins that help improve eyesight or help maintain your perfect vision, you can feel confident about your sense of sight.
Do you ever squint to see a dinner menu in a low lit restaurant, or have a hard time reading in small fonts? Then you should download a magnifier app so you can give your eyes a rest. If unfortunately, you have poor vision, you can also download apps that read the text and transfer the test to a larger font on your screen. Therefore, you don’t have to squint at small text anymore.
Give Your Eyes a Rest
In addition to aiding the health of your eyesight, you can download apps that remind you to put down the phone or close your laptop screen, and give your eyes a break. Studies report that on average, a person looks at their phone at least 150 times a day. Digital eye strain can cause headaches, dry eyes, and make it hard to focus. Therefore, downloading apps that remind you to take a walk, take a nap, or anything other than staring at the screen is beneficial to the health of your eyes.
Another great way to give your eyes a rest with apps is to opt for hearing your book instead of reading it. You can easily download audiobooks from loads of different apps and let your ears do all the work.
Your eyes are very important, and you want to make sure you give them the best care possible. Luckily, with app tools like magnifiers, text-readers, and text converted to audio, you can improve the health of your eyes. In addition, you can listen to your books being read by your favorite author or download an app that reminds you to take a break from your screen and enjoy the world around you.
