I am a firm believer in preventative care rather than waiting for a health concern to present itself. I think that the eyes are often overlooked because many people think they don’t need regular eye examinations if they aren’t experiencing any vision problems. Even if you have “perfect” vision, eye examinations by a qualified professional should be on your radar because the doctor isn’t just testing to see if you require a new prescription or a change to an existing one. Serious conditions and eye diseases can also be detected early through regular examinations, which may allow your vision to be preserved.
Health Tip #2: Take Good Care of Your Eyes
5 Eye Care Tips
- Get regular eye exams.
- Wear protective eyewear when you are working around the house (read: weed whacking versus mopping the floor), playing sports, or handling hazardous materials.
- Eat foods that support positive eye health, such as dark leafy greens and fish with omega-3. You can also take omega-3 supplements if you aren’t a fan of eating fish!
- Wear sunglasses that protect your eyes from harmful UVA and UVB radiation (even in the winter!).
- Rest your eyes when you are using a computer for extended periods of time.
Do you get regular eye examinations? I wear glasses, so I’ve been having eye examinations for as long as I can remember!
