We save for the rainy day. We insure our life against disasterts. We carelessly try to obtain a good house to live in. But we do nothing to procure a good body, in which god resides. We acnnot hope for good eyes without good health. 'Good eyes in a good body' is an apt idiom.

Our reading and writing activities continue unabated even during the late hours. Such incessant reading or writing deprives the eyes of their legitimate rest and relaxation. It strains our delicate eyes.Advertisements have led some peopleto resort to the use of certain eye-drops or ointments. But it would be too much to expect anything really worthwhile of such drops. We should pay attension to the correct ways of using our eyes and develop such habits as would mantain the eye-health.

It is true that eyes are meant for seeing. But their excessive use must be stopped. At the same time. we should learn the methods to keep eyes and the body strong and healthy. without good health, one cannot hpe for good eyes.
