About Eye Diseases
Many eye diseases have no early symptoms and may, in fact, be painless and have no real effect on your vision until the disease has become quite advanced. The most important way to protect your vision is to have it checked regularly by getting a eye exam. If, between examinations, you notice any changes in your vision or you think you may have an eye injury, contact your eye care professional immediately.
8 Tips for Healthy Eyes
Stay Active.
Regular exercise can delay the onset of age-related macular degeneration (the leading cause of permanent vision loss later in life).
Get a Regularly Scheduled Eye Exam.
A comprehensive eye exam can detect serious problems, like diabetes, before you even know they exist.
Wear Sunglasses.
Sunglasses protect your eyes from the sun's UV rays, which can be dangerous even on cloudy days.
Rest Your Eyes.
Once every 20 minutes for about 20 seconds to help prevent eye strain.
Eat Your Greens.
A diet rich in fruits, leafy greens and omega-3 fatty acids can help reduce your risk of dry eyes, macular degeneration, glaucoma and more.
Wear Safety Glasses.
An estimated 2.4 million eye injuries occur in the United States each year, and 90% of them can be avoided with protective eyewear.
Quit Smoking.
Smoking increases your risk of cataracts and sight-threatening eye diseases.
Drink Plenty of Water.
Without enough water, you can't produce enough tears to keep your eyes moist and nourished.
