Our eyes are a well-designed optical system, our eyes are a complicated and highly developed organ. You could say that we rely on our eyes for just about everything we do without lives, whether it’s our personal or work related. Wouldn’t you agree? I believe that’s a good enough reason for us to take good care of our eyes.

It is interesting to say that the majority of humans who are diagnosed with ADD/ADHD are farsighted. Farsighted people and people with ADD/ADHD have something else in common as well, both groups tend to avoid close work. Avoidance of doing work or lacking on paying attention in class, for example is something a person with ADD/ADHD would do.

Usually when farsighted that person much rather look up and distract themselves to something they can see.
Whether you have myopia or hyperopia, it is extremely important that you get annual checkups. Visiting the eye doctor’s office is just as important as when you visit your physician’s office. Your eyes are part of your healthy lifestyle. Eye exams for children are extremely important as well, because vision is linked to the learning process. At eye exams you get to experience something new every time you go because you vision is always changing. Get your eyes the treatment they deserve.
