Are you due to visit the optometrist?

doctor-visitAre you due to visit the optometrist? Even if you don’t wear glasses and your eyes are feeling fine, we’re here to share several reasons why you should get your eyes tested on a regular basis.

Visiting your local optometrist allows doctors to look directly at your blood vessels which can reveal early warning signs of serious health problems such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease and diabetes before the symptoms show up anywhere else in the body.

Depending on your health and age, you should also visit the optometrist to make sure you are above driving standards. Sometimes people won’t even realize they have blurred vision as deterioration tends to happen quite slowly over time. Driving standards are very strict and you might be driving illegally without even knowing it! If you were involved in a car accident and your vision was found to be below the legal standard, your insurance might be void. This is a worst case scenario but it’s better to be safe than sorry!

A visit to the optometrist can also let you know if you have a lazy eye. This is especially important for children, so if you are a parent or guardian, make sure you take your kids in for regular eye exams. Check out our post on Top 5 Tips on Choosing Children’s Eyeglasses for more information on bring your kids to the optometrist.

Certain eye diseases such as Glaucoma show no symptoms and most people are unaware of it until it’s too late. Regular visits to your optometrist can easily pick up eye diseases such as these to ensure your vision is protected.

Do you suffer from regular headaches and wonder what the cause is? You should visit your optometrist! A large percentage of headaches are caused by visual problems and most general practitioners will recommend you get your eyes tested to see if that is the problem.

We hope this article has inspired you to visit your local optometrist. Your vision is priceless and a thirty minute appointment once a year is certainly something you should be able to commit too. Getting your eyes tested regularly will help you stay on top of your general health, eye diseases and even headaches!

Exercises To Improve Your Eyesight

Exercises To Improve Your EyesightStimulate your eye muscles:

This exercise is simple, but must be done every morning. On waking up, wash your face with water (preferably cool or a little cold water). Then fill your mouth with water, close your eyes and splash cold water onto your eyes.

This exercise helps stimulate the muscles of the eyes, due to the pressure exerted by the water filled in your mouth. The splash of cold water on your face helps enliven the nerve endings and rejuvenates the skin.

Wash your eyes

In the morning strain the liquid and wash your eyes with it twice a day. This eyewash helps relax and relieve stress in the eyes.

Massage over worked eyes:

This is a great exercise for people who work for long hours in front of computers. Hold your eyebrows between your thumb and index finger, in such a way that the thumb is above the eyebrow and index finger below. Now, gently press and straighten your eyebrows, exerting gentle pressure on all the points. Then, take your thumb and gently roll it around your eye ball, i.e. along your eye socket. Do this exercise every three to four hours to improve the circulation around your eyes.  This exercise improves circulation around the eyes helping them recover from the fatigue of constantly looking at a computer screen. Read more about computer vision syndrome.

Exercise the muscles around your eyes

This exercise is done to stimulate the muscles around your eyeballs (that are present within the eye socket). Rotate your eyeballs, first to the right and left, then upwards and downwards. Do this in the clockwise and anti-clockwise direction for about three to four repetitions.

Human eye is an amazing organ that most of us rely on every waking moment of the day.

You have only a pair of eyes, so take care of your eyes. It is always a good idea to consult with your eye doctor to discuss your options.

Exercises Can Smarten Up Your Eyesight

Eye-ExercisesYou don’t need spectacles, lenses, even surgery. Easy-peasy exercises done daily can smarten up your eyesight, says a vision trainer.

Muscles need exercise

Constant exposure to pollution, harsh lights from tele vision and computer usage, poor sleeping and eating habits all come together to affect the health of our eyes.

Vision yoga exercises involve movements that massage the eye ball, work out muscles that control eye movement and provide relief to the overworked organ.
