NAVIGATING YOUR COMPUTER WITH POOR EYESIGHT
Many individuals spend the majority of their work days on their computers, and poor vision can make it difficult to navigate using the computer screen. You can increase your monitor’s font size, or use an adaptive tool that reads text out loud so you can listen to the words instead of trying to decipher them on-screen.
You may be able to make adjustments for poor eyesight if you spend a lot of time at the computer, but another option you can consider is vision correction surgery. There are various types of eye surgeries that can help improve your vision.
CAREERS THAT REQUIRE GOOD VISION
In some cases, impaired vision could be a barrier if you want a career that requires good vision. For example, airline pilots must have 20/20 vision in both eyes. If you are a pilot and your vision begins to fail, you may soon be out of work. Other jobs that require good vision include Air Force pilots and air traffic controllers since these individuals are required to rely on their vision throughout the day.
These rules are in place provided the lives of many people could be at stake. A pilot flying without good vision could potentially misjudge a decision when in the cockpit, which could lead to catastrophe if an error is made.
CORRECTING YOUR VISION
If you have less than perfect vision, you may want to consider having vision correction surgery to help you regain the vision you once had. Your eye doctor can help you determine the right type of treatment ideal for your personal needs.
Some individuals may benefit from PRK or LASIK eye surgery, which can help reshape the lens of the eye, whereas others may require a full lens transplant in order to restore their vision.
