When it comes to eye care, I am particularly a rebel at heart. This is due to my love for reading and when the mood strikes me, I can devour several books in a day. Wen this happens, I have no care whether I read in the dark or anywhere else for that matter. If I want to finish a book, I will stay up late just to finish it. I will even forego other things like eating or sleeping for reading. This can often lead to disastrous results, in particular, bad eyesight.
