Vision and hearing are essential components of our overall health and well-being. Like weight loss, smoking cessation, and other wellness programs provided by community centers and corporate wellness programs, people need to ensure they’re on the right track in keeping their eyes and ears in good health. People may be affected by vision or hearing problems related to numerous causes.
For example: Although computer monitors are not overtly harmful to the eyes, safety concerns may result if eyeglass prescriptions are not up-to-date and regular eye exams do not occur. This is especially important in today’s homes and workplaces, where eighty percent of all employees work on a personal computer.
Recreational noise is a leading source of hearing problems. We are bombarded daily by noise. Ironically, dangerous sound levels often come from activities we choose to do.
