Reading used to be one of life’s great pleasures. Now, it can be a reminder of your age as you struggle with every page.
Your “normal” glasses are too strong. Your reading glasses are too weak.
And you’re left sliding them up and down your nose… moving the page closer and further away… struggling to find the “just right” spot for reading.
But maybe it’s not the RIGHT spot you need. It’s the BRIGHT spot.
And I don’t mean your favorite reading lamp either. As new research reveals how the light from the SUN itself could help protect your eyes, improve your vision, and make it a whole lot easier to read.
Shine a little light on vision loss
I’ve seen a LOT of ads for gadgets, gizmos, and tricks to improve vision over the years. And let’s just say that most of them are garbage.
But THIS “trick” has three HUGE advantages over all those wacky solutions. It’s…
- SUPER easy
- COMPLETELY free
- PROVEN to work
And that last one is the most critical point of all. This unexpected but effective vision solution has been proven by science.
The trick is to read in the sunlight. That’s it. That’s the whole “gimmick.”
Scientists from the State University of New York’s College of Optometry have found that the neurons in the visual cortex can respond VERY differently in different types of light.
Until now, eye experts had believed that luminance contrast – what you rely on to see black letters on a white page, among other things – is the same in all light, no matter how bright. But it actually varies quite a bit, according to studies on both humans and cats.
Who knew cats were such avid readers? But all kidding aside, the studies revealed that the black-and-white polarity (again, like black letters on a white page) changed pretty dramatically, especially under sunlight.
So find a sunny corner near a window to read when you can. And when the weather is nice, pop outside for a reading session from time to time. It will make reading easier AND improve your mood.
Support your peepers with eyesight supplements
Sun exposure also stimulates the visual centers of the brain better.
It means, in essence, you can see better, strain less, and enjoy what you’re reading more. And reading in sunlight may be especially helpful if you’re suffering from the “computer vision syndrome” that’s become so common as we stare at screens all day.
But don’t stop there. If you’re struggling with your vision, be sure to give your eyes the nutrients they crave: lutein and zeaxanthin.
Both help form the macular pigments in your eyes. Replenishing them can help protect your peepers and may help you sidestep macular degeneration and prevent or delay cataracts too.
You’ll find both nutrients in dark, leafy greens. But you can top them up with a vision supplement as well. Look for one that contains various eyesight supporting ingredients like the 11 best nutrients for vision I detailed here in this free special report.
