Everyone knows the importance of sight because it is our window to the outside world. Without sight, life will be shrouded with insecurity, hopelessness and darkness. Unlike our forefathers who are more involved in manual works, we are always straining our eye to look at small letters and images on so many different bright screens each day. We end up straining our eyes beyond what our eye muscles can tolerate without us knowing it. Assuming we can live till 75 years old, we become myopic at 16 and become hyperopic at 30. This is not what we want.
The challenge in this contest is to discover the daily habits that we have that will cause our eyes to expire its use faster than we expect/want. Share with us your knowledge, experience and stories that will let us understand the importance of our eyes and thus learn how to take care of them through good diet, exercise, habits, etc. You may read this extra-ordinary charity organization that always challenging itself to bring light to the blind. Visit them at http://www.anewvision.org and get some inspiration for your submission to this contest. As AmieOne is committed to supporting good charitable works, the proceeds (after deducting overheads) from this contest will be donated to A New Vision in support of their setting-up of an eye centre in Indonesia.

来自Amie One参赛样本 （不要投票给此提交） 我意识到自己通过敏锐的观察和帮助别人的过程中学得更快。 能用有限的生命，体验生活的种种。例如，有人自愿帮助寺庙准备素食，过程中的经验让她后来开了自己的素食生意。一个不求回报的付出，换回来的是不可思议的因果。 我希望以上是令人反思和有教育性的分享，能获得您的投票。感谢您的阅读。 （You may use English or Chinese to submit your Answer. 您可用英文或华文提交。） View More

I was so taken aback and thanked him. i have since patronised this humbl... View More
