A Lifetime Vision: 5 Tips for Healthy Eyes

By Sanderson Krumpf

In a survey done by the American Optometry Association (AOA), over 50% of Americans consider eyesight they're most valuable sense. They worry more about losing their vision than any other sense. Even though we put great emphasis on this important sense, most of us give little thought to keeping our eyes healthy. Here are some tips to keep your eyes in peak condition.

Have a Yearly Eye Exam: Maybe you think your vision is fine, but how can you be sure? The only way to be certain your eyes are in good shape is to have a comprehensive eye exam by an eye care professional. It's quite common for people to overlook significant changes in their visual performance. They don't realize their vision could be improved with glasses or contact lenses.

Eye diseases like glaucoma, diabetic eye disease and age-related macular degeneration can come on without warning. A comprehensive dilated eye exam that enables an eye doctor to see into the back surface of the eye can result in early detection of eye disease, improving the chance that they can be treated effectively.

Check Your Family's Eye Health History: Conversations about family medical history can be awkward, but essential. Most diseases and conditions of the eye are hereditary. Understanding your family's medical history can provide an early indicator of risk for disease of the eye.

The Right Diet is Good for the Eyes: There's a common belief that "carrots" are the best veggie for the eyes. However, leafy, green vegetables like spinach actually offer more eye health benefits. Fruits and vegetables are both valuable to eye health (along with all the other body parts). Research suggests the omega-3 rich fish like salmon and tuna also offer health benefits for the eyes.

Keep a Healthy Weight and Lifestyle: Obesity leads to serious medical conditions like diabetes that can result in loss of vision, diabetic eye disease and glaucoma. Consider speaking with your physician if you feel you are struggling to maintain a healthy weight. If you don't smoke, keep it that way. If you've started...quit. The dangers of cigarette smoke is well known, but it has also been linked retinal and optic nerve damage and cataracts.

Rest and Protect Your Eyes: More people buy sunglasses as a fashion statement than as eye protection, but sunglasses that block out 99-100% of UV-A and UV-B radiation are a great health accessory. Anyone involved in athletics should be wearing eye protection when the activity recommends it.

In today's modern world, most people spend a large portion of their day staring at a monitor or screen. Optometrists recommend the 20-20-20 rule which suggests you should look away from the screen to a distance of 20 feet for 20 seconds every 20 minutes. This helps reduce the strain on your eyes.

Clean Hands, Clean Eyes: Before placing contacts in your eyes, thoroughly clean your hands with soap and water. This reduces your chances of infecting the yes. Replace your contact lenses on the recommended schedule and disinfect them according to instructions.

Follow these recommendations and you'll see better and feel better while reducing your risk of eye disease and other conditions affecting the eye.
