 3 Easy Tips to Maintain Your Eye Health, High Point, North Carolina

You rely on your eyes to help you to explore the world, interact with others, and perform work each day, which is why eye health should be at the top of your priority list. Unfortunately, many people overlook their eyes until they have suffered irreparable injury or illness, which is why it is essential to know how to take care of your vision. 

What Are the Best Ways to Maintain Your Eye Health?

Wear a Good Pair of Sunglasses

The ultraviolet light that comes from the sun is just as hard on your eyes as it is on your skin and hair, causing problems like macular degeneration, retinal damage, cataract clouding, and even tissue growth over the white part of your eye, eventually leading to astigmatism. Fortunately, wearing a good pair of sunglasses with UV protection can ward off these serious medical problems, while making you look fashionable.

Meet With an Optician

eye healthWhen you meet with your optician, they will speak with you about more than frame styles and vision-correction options. In addition to carefully evaluating your eyes for disease, they’ll talk about daily habits that might be interfering with your vision. For example, if you have been wearing an old pair of eyeglasses for too long, they could be causing problems like eyestrain and headaches. 

Give Your Eyes a Rest

With more and more people relying heavily on computers, tablets, and smartphones, it is increasingly important to give your eyes a rest to prevent strain. Experts recommend resting your eyes every twenty minutes for at least twenty seconds by looking away from your television, phone, or computer screen. This simple practice gives your eyes the chance to rest and readjust, improving your comfort.
