Lower the Stress on Your Eyes
Easing the burden on your eyes may help make living with
low vision more manageable:
Install bright lights in strategic spots, such as above the kitchen counter or a favorite reading chair. Visit a lighting store to determine which type of bulb is best for you.
Use brightly colored labels to help you find and organize key items in your home - or wherever else you spend a lot of time.
Try using a magnifying glass, purchasing large print books or increasing the type size or contrast level on your computer, cellphone, or e-reader.
Smoking is a risk factor for many retinal diseases. If you are living with a retinal disease and are currently smoking, prioritize your vision and overall health by quitting today.
