optimal vision and empower people to take control of their eye health.
Top 5 Things You Can Do to Protect Your Vision at Any Age
- Don't smoke, and if you do, then quit.
Smoking damages the small blood vessels in your eyes and can drastically
increase your risk of eye problems.
- Maintain a healthy diet. Like the other
organs in your body, your eyes need essential vitamins, minerals, and
other nutrients from the food you eat to function optimally.
- Protect your eyes from UV and blue light.
UVA and UVB light from the sun, as well as blue light emissions that come
from digital devices, can damage the sensitive retinas and eventually lead
to vision loss. So, always wear sunglasses that offer broad-spectrum UV
- Get plenty of exercise. The American
Optometric Association has found that several studies suggest that
participating in daily physical activity can reduce your risk for
developing certain eye diseases.
- See an eye doctor regularly. Meeting
with an optometrist on a routine basis (at least once every 2 years, and
maybe more if you have a personal or family history of eye
problems, or are a senior adult) is the best way to improve your chances
of early disease detection, treatment, and even prevention. Many times,
eye conditions can develop for a long time before symptoms even present.
So even if you think your vision is perfectly fine, you should still
consult with your local optometrist. Our comprehensive exams are complete
with customized treatment plans for whatever you may need, including
vision correction prescriptions, dry eye treatment, and more.
