Are you straining your eyes?

The right light can make a world of difference to your eyes. When doing close-up work, make sure you have light that's directed on what you're doing. Use a brighter light source if you need one, especially if you have reduced vision. If you're reading, use a shaded light positioned in front of you. The shade will keep light from shining directly into your eyes.
