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 is important for keeping your eyes healthy. Any local eye care professional can recommend the appropriate solutions for your eye health and safety. 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). If you last had an eye exam less than two years ago you should schedule one today.
