The Best Eye Care Routine

Your eyes are an incredibly important part of your everyday life and overall health. That’s why taking proper care of them is essential. The complete eye care guide from Complete Family Eyecare offers advice for the best way to care for your eyes.

 

Eye Care Tips

 

Eye Exams

Having your eyes examined regularly is an important part of maintaining the health of your eyes. We recommend that you get an exam every 1-2 years. Once you turn 60, we then recommend that you begin to get eye exams annually. 

 

Diet and Healthy Habits

Eat your fruits and veggies to keep not just your eyes, but your overall body healthy. In addition, keep healthy habits! Don’t smoke, as smoking can lead to vision issues, including vision loss.

 

Wear Your Glasses and Contacts

It may be tempting to go without if you can see ok without them, but going without your glasses or contacts can lead to more issues in the long run. 

 

Wear Sunglasses

If you are going to be spending time outside, wear sunglasses, even on cloudy days. Wearing sunglasses outside protects the eyes from harmful UVA and UVB rays.

 

Follow Proper Procedures with Your Contact Lenses

Contact lenses have procedures for cleaning and a schedule for how long they can be worn before they need to be replaced. It is important to follow these guidelines to avoid future vision issues. 

 

Take Breaks

We spend so much time on computers and smartphones that it can cause some negative side effects for your eyes. Try to take regular breaks to reduce this strain!
