It often happens that you close your eyes while watching something. Although it seems like a normal everyday thing, it still means it’s time for a checkup!
Blinking is often an automatic mechanism for people whose vision is not clear without eye aids. They often do not feel that they are blinking while seeing something, because it is an instinctive state.
The reason why blinking helps to have clear vision is that it reduces the intake of light in the natural lens. The eye sees clearly, that is, it has a clear vision, due to the light rays that enter the eye and focus on the retina.
If the person is nearsighted, the light rays focus on the front of the retina and cannot be seen well at a distance. If the person is farsighted, then the process is reversed, the light is focused on the back of the retina and the closer things are blurred.
However, closing your eyes helps because it reduces the intake of light that focuses on the retina, through the natural lens.
In addition to the smaller intake of light rays that focus on the retina, closing your eyes also changes the shape of the eye very little.
Although closing your eyes helps to see a little better, this should not be considered a cure for better eyesight. On the contrary, it should be understood as a red flag, that it is time to go for an examination.
The eyelids themselves wrinkle the skin around our eyes, by accelerating the formation of wrinkles around your eyes.
Blinking can be an indication that you need eye aids or a checkup for laser diopter correction.
Laser diopter correction helps to remove diopters and eye aids. Laser diopter correction will help you not to blink while looking and your vision is clear.
