iPad, Nook, Kindle May Help Baltimore Glaucoma Patients

Patients with glaucoma may benefit from using e-readers such as iPads, Nooks and Kindle devices according to a recent study published in Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science Adults with glaucoma read slower when reading silently for long periods of time and are more likely to have their reading speed decrease over time, possibly as a result of reading fatigue. Fortunately, recent studies suggest that technological solutions such as e-readers along with the apps that are developed for them may very well help glaucoma patients read more comfortably.

If you or someone you know has glaucoma and wishes to learn more about  e-readers such as iPads, Nooks and Kindle devices you are encouraged to schedule an eye examination at Baltimore Washington Eye Center by calling 800-495-3937, visiting Baltimore Washington Eye Center or facebook.com/baltimorewashingtoneyecenter.
