Eyes Healthy

Sources: Papers On Health

Cheap, ill-printed literature is responsible for much

eye trouble, and it is well worth while to pay, if possible, a little

extra for books well printed, especially in the case of those who read

much. When reading sit erect, with the back to the light, so that it

falls over the shoulder. Too fine work, dim light, wrong diet, and want

of exercise produce the dull and strained eye, which eventually becomes

seriously diseased. Opening the eyes under cold water will help to

strengthen them, and massaging the muscles of the eye by passing the

finger and thumb round the socket (with scarcely any pressure on the

ball itself) will be found of advantage.
