When it comes to your health the first thing that often comes to mind is regular visits to the doctor to make sure our heart, lungs and other vital parts are working properly. But could you be forgetting a key part of your body?
Eye health isn’t always at the top of our minds when we think of being healthy, but taking care of your eyes is just as important as healthy eating or regular physical activity. Your eyesight can impact your performance at work, school or home and when your eyes are strained it can lead to headaches, fatigue and even a sore neck!
There are some key ways to prioritize your eye health:
Get regular, comprehensive dilated eye exams
Wear protective eyewear when playing sports or doing activities that could potentially damage your eyes
Know your family’s eye health history; it’s important to know if anyone has been diagnosed with an eye disease or condition
Taking care of your eyes can prevent vision loss or disease and help you lead an overall healthier lifestyle.
