It’s important to take care of your eyes. Poor vision makes it harder to read, drive, cook, etc. An eye care professional will examine your eyes for signs of vision problems or eye diseases. It’s the best way to find out if you need glasses or contacts, or are in the early stages of a serious but treatable eye disease. But more than that, there are important things you should be doing to care for your eyes daily.
Essential Steps for Daily Eyecare
- Eat at least 5 servings daily of fruits and vegetables.
- Don’t smoke.
- Take regular breaks while doing computer work and other tasks that mostly involve your eyes.
- Wear your glasses.
- Wear sunglasses when out of doors.
