Prevention. Computers are the number one method of communication today. Consequently, we may be spending up to eight hours or more a day in front of a computer either at work, or as a home-based business. In addition, we strive to strengthen the security of our data through newly acquired software. Conversely, what steps do we take to secure and strengthen our eyes? After all, the strain imposed upon them subtly creeps up and we find it more and more difficult to read the small print. Thus, the importance of eye exams cannot be overstated. Yearly check-ups should be a part of our overall desire to keep our eyes in focus.
* UV Ray Protection. Summer is the time when most folks visit the beach regularly. In addition, outdoor activities during hot summer days is something everyone looks forward to, right? The problem is we do not always consider the damage the sun’s UV rays have on our eyes. The use of proper sunglasses can prevent cataracts and macular degeneration. Purchase appropriate sunglasses that have 100% ultra-violet ray protection.
* Vitamin A. Include vitamin A supplements or foods in your diet regimen. Whether you choose fruits or vegetables or both, this can help enormously in the prevention of eye disease. If you didn’t like carrots as a kid, you can blend them with a favorite fruit and make a delicious drink out of it.
* Smoking. Now is the time to quit. Smoking is directly related to loss of vision. Cataracts and age-related macular degeneration are two diseases caused by smoking.
* Exercise and good nutrition. Eating vegetables and fruits, as well as fish and other healthy foods, can decrease your risk of developing eye disease. Exercise not only helps the circulation, but increases your overall health. Blood tests to determine if you have the onset of diabetes is also important since diabetes can cause eye problems later on.
As most of us engage in finding new ways to improve our overall health, eye health is just as important and should not be overlooked. If you have a job that requires you to sit in front of a computer all day, take time out away from the monitor. The first time you find yourself squinting or experience blurry vision or night blindness, make an appointment with your ophthalmologist. Proper diagnosis and treatment of eye conditions is the first line of defense.
