Here are our top tips to keep your eyes healthy!
Protect your eyes with sunglasses
Keep a healthy diet by limiting your intake of fats, eating fish 2-3 times a week, eating dark green leafy vegetables and fresh fruit daily, and by eating a handful of nuts a week.
Do not smoke as it increases the risk of advanced macular degeneration, cataracts and dry eye, in addition to an optic nerve condition that causes profound vision loss.
Wearing safety specs around the home with DIY projects, gardening and in a workshop in addition to hazardous work situations will prevent the vast majority of eye injuries.
Keep your health levels in check
Keep blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol under control as these can lead to significant sight threatening complications.
Have regular eye examinations so our optometrists can look after your eye health. It is an easy, cost effective way for early detection and management of vision and general health problems and as serious eye conditions are usually detected before vision or eye health is impacted, it is a vital way of looking after your sight.
