Some tips for reading more easily

  • Hold the book or paper in front of the one good eye.
  • Move the book or paper you are reading, rather than your eye. This takes practice, but with practice you will adjust your eye and head movements automatically.
  • You need a good light, such as an anglepoise light. This is a desk type light, with a reflector that is not transparent. The reflector needs to shine all the light on the book or paper, and none in your eye. This is like reading with the sun behind you. Having a bright light on the ceiling is not particularly helpful.
