Top Tips for Healthy Eyes

Healthy Eyes
  1. Have an eye examination at least every two years (minimum), not only to check your vision, but also to check your eye and general health
  2. Ensure you wear your optimum optical correction (glasses or contact lenses) to help perform better at work and socially. This can also prevent any eyestrain and deteriorations in your vision
  3. Wear eye protection when carrying out DIY and whilst playing any ‘at risk’ sports like badminton and squash. Protect your eyes, they are precious!
  4. Protect your eyes from UV, this is as important as protecting your skin. The eye is delicate and should be shielded from harmful UV rays, at all times
  5. Stop smoking, which is a risk factor for eye conditions like macular degeneration and cataract
  6. Eat plenty of colourful fruit and vegetables and maintain a healthy weight.  Healthy wellbeing helps prevent high blood pressure and diabetes, both of which can affect your eyes and vision
  7. Blink frequently and take regular breaks whilst using electronic devices like smartphones, tablets and PCs.  Also check the ergonomics of your work place, to ensure that your screen and keyboard are positioned correctly
  8. Drink plenty of water. It’s recommended that you drink at least six to eight glasses a day, to stay hydrated.  Lack of hydration can cause your tears and the delicate skin around your eyes to be susceptible to dryness. A diet rich in Omega 3/6 and fish oils can help protect the lipid (oily) layer of the tears, to prevent watery eyes
  9. Always wash your hands, to help reduce the risk of infection, especially when handling contact lenses
  10. Find out if there is any family history of any eye conditions, like glaucoma and macular degeneration and let your optometrist know
  11. If you experience any changes with your eyes, act promptly.  Early diagnosis and treatment can help reduce any long-term problems. Do not ignore your eye problems!
