How to Maintain a Lifetime of Healthy Vision

Protecting your eyesight is key if you want to enjoy a happy and full life. Here are some of the ways you can work together with your eye doctor to protect your eye health and prevent vision loss.

Scheduling regular eye exams at your local eye clinic is an important first step to protecting your eyesight. Your eye doctor will be able to provide crucial services such as eye exams, glaucoma testing, and eye emergency care, to ensure your vision stays clear and comfortable.

However, following a healthy lifestyle and exercising regularly, can also help lower your risk of certain conditions, such as:

  • Cataracts
  • Diabetic retinopathy
  • Glaucoma
  • Age-related macular degeneration

How to Maintain Healthy Vision For a Lifetime

A lifetime of healthy vision can ensure you enjoy a happy, full life as you age, but unfortunately, many individuals don’t always take the step to help make this a reality. If you want to enjoy clear and comfortable vision for many years, here are five steps to take.

Daily Tips To Achieving Clear And Comfortable Vision

  • Eat a healthy diet. People who stick to healthy diets full of fruits and vegetables get what they need to maintain healthy eyes and vision. (3 Recipes for Healthy Eyes)
  • Avoid digital eye strain. Your phone, computer, and/or tablet emits blue light, that can cause eye strain and discomfort. If you use your computer a lot, make sure to take frequent breaks and ensure you have adequate lighting. Also, talk to your optometrist about how blue light lenses can protect your eyes.
  • Don’t touch your eyes. We are constantly handling dirty things every day, such as our car keys and money, and accidentally touching your eyes can increase your risk of developing an infection. If you do have to touch your eyes (eg. to wear contact lenses), make sure to wash your hands thoroughly with warm water and soap.

Always Consider Eye Protection

One of the best, yet most overlooked, ways of protecting your eyes is to wear adequate eye protection.

Here are some things you need to think about:

  • Anytime you are outdoors in the sun, wear sunglasses that offer ultraviolet light protection.
  • If you’re doing weekly activities such as gardening, or other DIY chores, make sure you ALWAYS wear safety goggles to keep your eyes and vision safe from flying dirt and/or debris.
  • If you are athletic and enjoy playing sports such as tennis, squash, soccer, or basketball, talk to your optometrist about wearing eye protection. If you’re a swimmer, NEVER wear your contact lenses in the pool and consider purchasing prescription goggles.

Build A Strong Relationship With Your Eye Doctor

It’s important to remember that your eye doctor is your partner in keeping healthy eyes and vision. Having an optometrist whom you trust and routinely work with means you’ll always get the best care for your needs.
