In support of National Eye Health Awareness month this July, these are our top tips to maintaining healthy eyesight:
Tip 1: Wear sunglasses
Protect your eyes from sun damage and make sure your sunglasses meet Australian Standards (protection from UVA and UVB)
Tip 2: Get regular eye tests
Most serious eye conditions are more easil and successfully treated if diagnosed early. Early prevention now will prevent vision loss later.
Tip 3: Eat right
A healthy diet can decrease the risk of developing eye problems later in life.
Tip 4: Wear eye protection
Wearing the proper eye protection will prevent injuries from activities such as DIY and certain sports.
Tip 5. Don’t smoke
Smoking tobacco is directly linked to age-related macular degeneration and many other eye and health problems.
Tip 6. Don’t strain your eyes
If you need a bit of extra help when you are reading the news or playing games like Sudoku, why not look at some of the magnifying products available at Vital Living such as our 5x Magnifier and Desktop Magnifier Lamp.
