For the most part, it seems like people know how to manage their weight, take care of their teeth, take care of their hair and skin, and everything in between. But when it comes to taking good care of your vision, some people are at a loss. Luckily, it doesn’t have to be difficult. We have created a list of three simple ways that you can take care of your vision health.
Don’t Ignore Signs
Blurred vision, fatigued eyes, inflammation, chronic headaches, aching eyes, excessive tearing— all of these symptoms and more may be an indication of an underlying vision problem. One of the best things you can do for your overall vision is to not ignore any of these signs. As soon as you notice a change in your vision, contact our Keamy Eye and Laser Centre office to schedule an appointment.
Maintaining a healthy weight and eating well isn’t just good for your heart— they’re also good for you vision. Individuals who are at a healthy weight are less likely to develop diabetes which can contribute to vision problems like diabetic retinopathy. Additionally, patients who eat a diet rich in vitamins and minerals like Vitamin A, Vitamin E, and omega-3 fatty acids are less likely to develop diseases like macular degeneration.
Get Regular Eye Exams
It’s recommended that most adults get an eye exam every one to two years depending on your vision health, age, family history, and personal vision history. If you can’t remember the last time you had an eye exam done, contact our office, and we will get you in as soon as possible.
Better vision means that you get to experience a higher quality of life. Are you ready to learn more about how you can take better care of your vision? Or are you ready to schedule your next eye exam? Contact our Westborough office today. Call us at 508.836.USEE.
