refuse to wear glasses. Anything to keep down eyestrain and save the vision. I know first hand that loss of vision is devastation to the soul.
One thing I personally miss the most is reading. If you are a devout reader, stop every 30 minutes and rest your eyes. Focus on something far away for a few seconds and then return to your book.
When eyestrain happens to you and you need quick relief, take a tea break. No, do not drink it. Put a warm towel soaked in eyebright tea on your eyes. Lie down with it on closed eyes for 10 to 15 minutes. It will make your eyestrain go away.
We exercise our body; why not exercise our eyes? Yes, exercise is good for eyestrain and tired eyes. Here's a good one. Hold your thumb out at arm's length. Move it in circles, bringing the thumb in close then far away, as you follow it with your eyes. Then change and do x's the same way. Five to seven times should be enough. Here's another one, but you will need someone to help you. Standing five feet away from a wall, have someone toss a tennis ball at the wall. You will try to catch the ball as it bounces off the wall. This will help to offset the strain to your tired eyes.
Yes, I repeat, eyestrain can happen to anyone. Do you drive a car? Do you watch TV? Do you use a computer? If so, this includes you. And that means you will have eyestrain occasionally. Take a break for a few minutes and save your vision.
1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
1 Peter 1:8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory.
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (King James Version)
