assures proper seeing
and more enjoyable reading


It's restful to settle down of an evening, now and then, with a
book you like . . . relaxing comfortably and spending a few hoUrs
in leisurely reading. Yet sometimes this simple occupation seems to
tire you. Why? The answer often may be found in your lighting.
When you read, your eyes are constantly in action. They are riot
resting. If inadequate lighting makes them expend much of your
energy in unceasing effort to see, eyestrain will result.
Whether you read for pleasure or instruction, be sure your light
is right. There should be adequate light on the page, as recomtnended
by the Science of Seeing. There should also be enough room-wide
light to avoid unpleasant contrasts, which are tiring to the eye. It
may be that glasses will help you, too. Consult your eyesight
specialist. Then, to be sure of your lighting, have it' measured with
a Sight Meter. There is no charge for this service. Simply call
The Detroit Edison Company for a Sight Meter survey of your lighting.
