Eye Hygiene 101
Do you know how important it is to take care of your eyes? Practicing good eye hygiene will keep your eyes strong and healthy and less likely to be affected by diseases like glaucoma. Follow these daily routine suggestions to jump-start health habits:
- Consider Kale—A diet rich in nutrients will benefit your eyesight. Dark, leafy greens like kale and spinach and foods rich in omega-3s like salmon and tuna will promote good eye health.
- Swap the Shades—If you can’t remember if your current sunglasses offer at least 100% UV-blocking, you may want to consider buying a pair that offers total protection from both UVA and UVB light to ensure you’re keeping your eyes safe from harmful rays.
- Ditch the Digital—Well, not completely, but stay conscious about how much screen time you’re getting in a day. Try adding a red-tint filter to your digital devices and keep use to a minimum at least an hour before bed.
Another way you can ensure good eye health is to have routine eye exams. Schedule an appointment with us today!
Most, if not all, of us realize the importance of wearing sunglasses while we’re outside. And we know that wearing shades with 100% UV protection is the only way to shield our eyes from the sun’s harmful rays. It is especially important to keep our eyes protected since sun exposure is cumulative and can increase your risk of getting eye-related diseases like cataracts.
Normal sunglasses help darken bright light and prevent damage to the retina while keeping eyes and facial muscles from squinting and getting fatigued. But polarization goes further than just UV protection. Polarized lenses are specially designed to eliminate glare and bright reflections, because a special lens film neutralizes the glare, making objects appear much clearer and easier to see.
Polarization works especially well for these situations:
- Fishing and boating
- Going to the beach
- Winter sports
In addition to the comfort and functionality of non-glare lenses, the added polarization helps keep your eyes safe from the sun’s dangerous rays. Everyone can benefit from polarized lenses. Schedule an appointment and shop our selection of polarized sunwear today!
