If you enjoy sewing, crafting, needlepoint, embroidery, weaving, or applique, you may notice eyestrain, headaches or failing eyesight. If you dread giving up your hobby because you are noticing eyestrain, read on, this article is for you.
If you notice that after working on your current creation you have a headache or aching eyes, this may be due to overworking your eyes, or eyestrain. Close work is often associated with eyestrain and other eye problems. However with proper lighting and magnification, eyestrain can easily be minimized. As a disclaimer, we are not doctors at Famore Cutlery, and if you suffer from eyestrain, we highly recommend that you get your eyes tested by a qualified optician even if you wear glasses. Regular eye tests will catch and correct minor changes in your vision and reduce the instance of long-term vision problems due to close work.
