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!
