Maintaining Your Eyes With Vision Care
It is important to maintain your vision and eye health with regular eye examinations from an optometrist. Many studies suggest that children by the age of five should have their eyes checked to make sure they do not have any visual problems such as a lazy eye, strabismus, amblyopia or blindness. As children grow into adults, it is recommended that they visit the eye doctor yearly. Once you are in your 20’s and as you age, it is important to continue to see the optometrist and as you get older your visits should become more frequent in order to rule out eye disease such as glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration.
Tips from Advanced Eyecare Las Vegas Optometrists
In addition to regular visits to your eye doctor, there are other things you can do to help protect your eyes. Here are a few suggestions:
- Wear sunglasses: They can block out harmful rays that can lead to cataracts, macular degeneration, and other diseases.
- Eye protection: If you work in an industry with moving parts, machinery, or dangerous equipment, you should wear eye protection. Even when playing sports many people find it necessary to guard and protect their eyes. Eye protection is usually very cheap and can be found in most hardware and supply stores.
- Quit smoking: Smoking can increase the development of macular degeneration, optic nerve damage and cataracts. Contact your optometrist for information on how this can affect you personally.
- Stay healthy: Eating foods that are rich in vitamins and nutrients will not only help you feel better but can also help to keep your vision at its best. Eating greens is especially great for your eyes as they contain lutein. Studies show that lutein can help to reverse the symptoms and effects of macular degeneration.
