Top Tips for Healthy Eyes

When it comes to healthy vision, taking care of your eyes’ health should always be a top priority – on par with things like eating healthy and committing to regular exercise! Many common eye problems that often progress to cause vision loss can actually be treated – if detected early. That’s why regular eye exams for people of all ages continues to be so vital. To help create awareness about the importance of healthy vision, the month of May is now observed as ‘Healthy Vision Month’ around the world. To help do our part at Swords Eye Centre, we’ve created our own top tips for ensuring that your eye health and your vision are the best they can be.

5 Top Tips to Keep Your Eyes Healthy

Many things you do to keep your body healthy can help you keep your eyes healthy too. Here are some of the most effective ways to protect your eyes from unwanted eye problems:

1. Wear a good quality pair of sunglasses

Even on cloudier days, it’s important to protect your eyes from the effects of sun damage. Remember to wear a good quality pair of sunglasses (sunglasses that block 99-100% of ultraviolet radiation) to protect your eyes from harmful UVA and UVB rays.

2. Be aware of your family history

Many eye diseases are hereditary. This is why it’s important to know if any family members have ever been diagnosed with an eye disease or condition so you can pre-emptively identify any possible issues before they happen minutes.

3. Live as healthily as possible

Exercise regularly, get adequate sleep, and eat your carrots!

4. Consider wearing protective eyewear.

Frequent knocks whilst playing sports can affect your vision – that’s why it’s important to consider wearing protective eyewear. Likewise, by wearing proper fitting safety eyewear in the workplace you can help prevent eye injuries; A staggering 90% of workplace eye injuries can be reduced or prevented with correctly fitting safety eyewear.
