The seasons are changing quickly, and trying to see your way forward past the chaos of Covid-19 can feel like a never-ending derailment. 2020 vision is what all optometrists hope for their patients and what the year ahead had hoped to deliver: a more exact brighter future with the vision to see the road forward easily and without a million pitfalls.
However, rather than this beautiful ideal, it has been a year of chaotic upheaval and change. The key to our survival has been family, friends, and the relationships we have with other people. With eyes wide open, we have all watched as our world transforms into a new reality, which is all a little abstract and remote from the streams of our previous existence.
Faith and family are what help us to see past all of the uncertainty and change. For sure faith and hope have steered the direction of many people's lives during this pandemic and with our great British resolve we will get through this difficult time and come out the other side accepting a new normal.
As the days in lockdown or with restrictions have rolled by, we have embraced new ways to relax and keep a clear mind. Here, in this linked resource are a few techniques you can use to find direction and motivation, helping you explore the things you love. There doesn't have to be anything complex or sophisticated about the techniques you embrace, simple acts like taking a walk in nature and observing the changing season can help us to embrace the vision of our new reality.
Experiencing visual issues can also signal other medical conditions such as diabetes, glaucoma, brain tumours, and macular degeneration disorders, so do take any little niggles seriously and get yourself checked out.
Your eyesight is your window on the world, therefore making sure you maintain optimum vision is essential. A few tips that we can all embrace are -
Keeping up to date with your ophthalmic appointments to monitor any changes in your sight and over time this can give your ophthalmologist really valuable information.
Try not to stare at computer monitors (or any kind of screen) for long periods, factor regular breaks into your schedule
Don't be tempted to ignore any visual issues, get an appointment as soon as you can.
If necessary, invest in glasses as a means of necessity and not primarily as a fashion statement.
Undertake some simple but effective eye exercises that may help you see better in the dark.
With your eyes functioning at their best, finding solutions that create clarity, focus, and direction for the future are what you need to move forward with confidence and ease. Staying optimistic and positive in the face of adversity can have a profound impact, and you'll inspire others as you share your message of hope with all you meet.
Let your eyes be open, to see past these dark days, and rest on faith to carry you to a future of hope, renewal, joy, trust, truth and embrace your perfect vision.
