Increase Sleep, Reduce Glare

Morning. Hope you are all well. I am well rested this morning. Finally. After all of the insanity of the last few weeks I needed to take a nighttime pain reliever and go to bed early. Eight hours later.

Voila! A new woman. Well, actually an old woman in better shape than yesterday but you get the drift.

A couple of points there. OTC (over the counter) medication is good in the short-term. If I had persistent sleep problems I would need to see a doctor.  The issue could be something more than situational stress.

The second point is this: caregivers need self-care. I still had plenty to do last evening but sleep was the most important thing I needed to do. WebMD lists 10 effects of sleep deprivation. Among other things, sleep deprived people have more accidents and do not think as clearly as well rested people. Lack of sleep can cause heart problems and age your skin. I don’t know about you, but I ‘sag and bag’ more than enough now! I need those zzzzzs.

These fit over my eyeglasses and reduce glare.

All of which has nothing to do with the photo. The photo is of my new glare glasses. One of my late presents arrived!

The glare glasses are from a company called Noir, as in French for night.  I glanced at their website. I admit I did not look in-depth. I have sort of developed this effort versus benefit ratio thing. Since reading is so much harder, things of casual interest are skimmed at best.

Anyway, I have my glare glasses and that is where they are from. That is a statement of fact. It is not a recommendation. We get no kickbacks for mentioning these things but if the price is right, we might be bought…..er, we would consider running advertisements for true quality products ?.

The glare glasses fit nicely over my regular glasses. I don’t think they look too bad. They have some style. I have only had them for a couple of days but they seem comfortable to wear and seem to do the job.

Price? No clue. Check the website. Remember I have a Daddy Warbucks in the guise of Blindness and Visual Services. They paid for the glare glasses as well as my other toys. [Lin/Linda here: it’s hard to tell how much they cost since I don’t know the exact configuration of frame and lenses. There are other companies who make similar glasses. You can search for the keywords ‘fitover glasses reduce glare’.]

Once again, I have been very happy with the support I have received from BVS. I would encourage you to look into state support for your vision needs.  Maybe your organization will purchase you glare glasses too.

Next: there’s no place like home
