When we’re young and feeling invincible, unless we have cause, we don’t give a lot of thought to our health, let alone our eyes. That all changes as we age and begin to notice we aren’t seeing as clearly as we once did, or we need stronger glasses, or one eye seems blurrier than the other. That’s what makes a book like Your Precious Sight by Dr. Eichin Chang-Lim a “must read”. Quite frankly, waiting until we have a reason to read it might just be too late. Dr. Chang-Lim’s book is not only a delight, thanks to the conversational style and a copious number of true-life anecdotes, but more importantly for the information it provides in easy-to-understand layman’s terms.
Learn not just about cataracts, glaucoma, epi-membrane issues (my own worrisome problem) but find out why some folks have color blindness, what those strange flashes we sometimes see in the dark mean, how diabetes affects the eyes, how retinas become detached, and even about the damage caused by smoking and drug use. If reading information like “...an estimated 2.4 million eye injuries occur in the United States each year. Notably, forty percent of eye injuries happen at home, and ten to twenty percent of injuries will cause temporary or permanent vision loss...”
If this doesn’t compel you to be more careful in your everyday environment and give you a good reason to wear protective glasses, perhaps Dr. Chang-Lim can. She has included a wonderful glossary of terms at the end of the book, along with plenty of active links in the digital version to take you to websites that expand on what she presents. Believe me, you are bound to learn much you didn’t know and you cannot come away from Your Precious Sight without being grateful that Dr. Eichin Chang-Lim took the time to write this for us all. Highly recommended.
