As we’ve looked at what it means to ‘think vision‘, we now turn our attention to understanding the benefits of thinking vision.
Have you ever found a good piece of advice and followed it? Only to stop after a while because you forgot or didn’t have time?
Well, it’s more difficult to forget the advice once it gains meaning through understanding the overall benefit.
What does it mean to ‘think vision’?
When we talk about thinking vision, we mean to actively consider our eyesight (and eyes!) daily.
Practising eye care proactively day-to-day can help us maintain our eyesight and eye health.
One of the key eye care steps is to wear the correct glasses for the tasks that a person needs them.
So, what are the benefits of eye care?
The benefits of thinking vision
See Better and Live Better
Actively considering and caring for our eyes on a daily basis can help us to see better and live better.
Ultimately, the benefits that better vision and leading a richer life can bring are priceless, both physically and psychologically.
When you can see the world around you more clearly, it can help to:
Keep you safer and reduce the risk of falls as obstructions, steps and stairs are more visible.
Maintain your independence and make you feel empowered by even the smallest of tasks.
Reduce feelings of depression and isolation, which can cause further physical and psychological distress.
So, actively thinking about our eyesight and eye health can help transform our lives.
Avoiding or reducing falls can be physically and emotionally freeing, encouraging a person to participate in the world around them.
Also, less physical injuries means not being bed-bound or house-bound.
Maintaining mobility inside and outside the home, along with social activity, can help avoid low moods and isolation.
Most importantly, having more clearer vision can help us to regain what we may have lost.
Living within a care environment
The benefits of thinking vision apply to everyone, regardless of whether a person lives within a care environment or not.
We all have activities or hobbies that we enjoy doing. Perhaps, we even have hobbies that we used to enjoy doing, but no longer can due to poor vision.
We all deserve to lead as rich a life as possible!
The purpose of raising awareness of ‘think vision’ is to help people better their own lives and the lives of others too.
