There is no real definition of old age, but people know its happening when they start to lose their vision or hearing. But what if you aren’t really old? Let’s say you are in your 40’s or early 50’s. That isn’t really very old and if you are starting to lose your vision and hearing it may be related to something other than genetics. If you or someone you love dealing with problems with vision or hearing? Are you or someone you love having trouble with the declining of these faculties? Did you ever think that it is work related?
More than 50% of jobs today require some kind of computer work. This trend is looking to increase to 77%. This means that most jobs will have to incorporate technology in some way. So not only are we to be consumed by the blue light of our phones but we are also subjected to this harsh light at our job. People who sit in front of computer screens for too long can suffer from vision issues. Blue screens, harsh lighting, or too bright of lights can be very harmful to your vision. It can decrease your ability to see and can decline your vision. This, in turn, can affect your work productivity as well as change your entire look. Despite there being medical marvels to the eye community alongside better eye ware, it is still a change from the usual and it would not have occurred had it not been for the constant use of technology.
Other vision issues can be related to exposure to chemicals or debris. If you are working in construction or mining then you know all too well about what it is like to work in a cloud of dust. These small particles can get into your eye and cause real injury which can lead to losing eyesight. Hearing loss is also a risk for those in that profession. Any job that requires you to be around loud noises for long periods of time can increase your chances of hearing loss. And, just like vision, even though there are some great medical advances for hearing assistance, it is not your norm and therefore it takes time to deal with these changes.
