A sightful insight about vision

Rojita Bajracharya from Nepal, pursuing Bsc. Optometry in a Christian college, currently doing an internship in Narayana Nethralaya

Among the five senses and probably the most crucial one for the world to make sense…
I am the reason behind your vision; your soul spectator of all existing seasons…
So do me a favour while you still see well enough…
Get me checked by an optometrist every once or twice a year!!!

You may have just been born…
But there’s still a lot of things that could go wrong….
Take me to a screening just to be safe…
I want no white reflex to stain vision for your age….

Sometimes age is no longer a bar…
You grow and I grow with you too…
I may grow fast or slow, pardon the genes..
It might however be due to the environment you put me in….

I may confuse you with blurry images…
At any distance; a lot of factors weigh in…
Don’t be lazy to get glasses if you need…
Or else I might get lazy, turning out or in..

It’s a world of technology; an era of devices..
They sure make everything easy for your life..
But I am troubled by some lights; mostly blue
And the blinkless time spent on those gadgets by you!

Use my lids to blink and follow the 20-20-20 rule…
Take breaks between and do other few eye exercises too…
Make sure my muscles remain active…
Thus I can move around for your view!!!

As you grow older, bp, sugar, thyroid and other body anomalies may show up…
Remember they harm not only your body but they despise me too…
Halos, black spots or lines floating or any abnormality you feel..
Don’t consider those as hallucination but as signs from me…
Hence visit an eye doctor at regular times…
Wait in some comprehensive eye exam queue!

Don’t panic; I am just saying this for your good..
Keep me clean and protected from adverse climate situations…
Make your body healthy so I can pair up nice with them…
Don’t take me for granted under any occasions!!
