Each year as the New Year approaches, people around the world resolve to make changes that will result in longer, happier and healthier lives. Often people are determined to lose weight while others are committed to kicking unhealthy habits such as smoking.
Around this time of year, many of us will make a New Year’s resolution to be healthier overall. But what about taking care of one of our most precious senses, our sense of sight? The first step to preserving our sense of sight is to ensure we have healthy eyes. Here are some tips to make sure you keep your eyes healthy well into the New Year:
1). Get Regular Eye Exams: Seeing your eye doctor for a regular eye exam is important. Adults, especially those over 40, should have annual eye exams, particularly to prevent age-related ocular conditions including macular degeneration (the part of the retina that processes light deteriorates), cataracts (the lens of your eye becomes cloudy)and glaucoma (pressure in the eye damages the optic nerve). Patients over 40 can also learn about presbyopia and their vision correction options such as multifocal contact lenses or bifocals. Children should have their first eye exam between the ages of 6 and 12 months.
2). Share Medical History With Your Eye Doctor: make sure to tell your eye doctor about your medical history.
3). Replace Your Contact Lens Case Often: Eye doctors recommend replacing your contact lens case every three or four months. This helps prevent possible complications from bacterial infections
