Like many other health issues knowing and being aware of your family history, keeping a balanced diet, and not smoking are just a few things that can help you on your path to healthy eyes and vision. Eating right to protect your sight, a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and fish containing omega 3 fatty acids are important for keeping your eyes healthy. Much like an annual physical from your primary care doctor, yearly dilated eye exams are strongly recommended, even if you may not need a correction (glasses or contacts). Any local eye care professional will be able to recommend the appropriate solutions for your eye health and eye safety. If you haven’t had an eye exam in more than 2 years you should schedule one today.
