Seeking Balance One Tuesday at a Time

Improving Color Vision with Red Light

Staring at a deep-red (or near infrared) light source for about three minutes can improve color vision in the elderly. I didn’t realize color vision decreased with age, but it’s good to know there’s something simple that could help. Here’s more from the Good News Network.

  1. JoAnna, a really amazing Good news Tuesday! 🙂 Most of the stories are about wonderful developments that can benefit all of us, but the story of the Dunkin Donuts employee and customer touches me on a personal level. ❤ Have a great day!

    • Thanks, Cheryl. I’m glad you enjoyed these stories. I was looking for a video this morning, and this one touched my heart as well. It’s a good lesson on how advocating for someone can made a big difference.

  2. The home for Ebony Johnson and her family warmed my heart. Angels do, indeed, walk among us!

  3. The final home story and the COVID tests are good stories. Thanks!

  4. The Ebony/Suzanne story is so heartwarming. Maybe gazing at sunsets for photographs is not harming my sight after all.

    • I bet the benefits of gazing at sunsets far outweighs any possible harm. Glad you found the story heartwarming. Thanks for enjoying it with me, Derrick!

  5. All good stories, JoAnna. I’m going to look into the the story about improving color vision. As I am already colorblind, losing more color vision with age would bother me.
