Keep an Eye on Your Vision!

You don’t have to have blurry vision to finally learn about eye health. Right now is a great opportunity to learn about eye health and to make sure you and your family understand the importance of regular eye exams.

Taking care of your eyes should be a priority, just like eating healthy and physical activity.

How can you protect your vision?

  • Get regular comprehensive dilated eye exams.
  • Know your family’s eye health history. It’s important to know if anyone has been diagnosed with an eye disease or condition, since some are hereditary.
  • Eat right to protect your sight: eat plenty of dark leafy greens such as spinach, kale, or collard greens, and fish that is high in omega-3 fatty acids such as salmon, albacore tuna, trout, and halibut.
  • Maintain a healthy weight.
  • Wear protective eyewear when playing sports or doing activities around the home, such as painting, yard work, and home repairs.
  • Quit smoking or never start.
  • Wear sunglasses that block 99 percent-100 percent of ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation.
  • Wash your hands before taking out your contacts and cleanse your contact lenses properly to avoid infection.
  • Practice workplace eye safety.
