Happy New Year!
January is the time when many of us make resolutions to eat healthier and exercise more.
Here are some ideas for keeping our eyes healthy:
Talk to your family about eye health. It is important to know if there is a history of eye diseases such as:
Eat eye healthy foods such as:
-Raw red peppers give you the most vitamin C per calorie
-Sunflower seeds and nuts such as almonds are high in Vitamin E. Vitamin E can help slow the progression of Age Related Macular Degeneration.
-Dark Leafy Greens such as Kale and Spinach are also very good for our eye health.
-Foods high in Omega-3 fatty acids such as salmon, tuna and trout can help with dry eyes and protect our eyes from Age related Macular degeneration and Glaucoma.
-Eggs are also very good for our eyes.
The new year is a good time to go through your personal hygiene products and make up bags.
Toss away older or expired products including mascara, eyeliner, eye drops and contact lens solutions.
Book your next eye exam and health check.
Your eyes are an important part of your health. Most people rely on their eyes to see and make sense of the world around them. But some eye diseases can lead to vision loss, so it is important to identify and treat eye diseases as early as possible.
An eye exam helps detect eye problems at their earliest stage — when they’re most treatable.
