Protecting your overall health is crucial, including your eye health. As you age, there is an increased risk of eye diseases, especially if you are overweight or have a family history of eye disease. It’s essential to monitor your health and how it correlates with your eye health.

Consider the following healthy habits to help maintain your vision:

  • Schedule frequent eye exams.
    Visiting your eye care professional for routine dilated eye exams is one of the best ways to be sure your eyes are healthy. A dilated eye exam is the best way to detect diseases in their early stages.
  • Consume healthy foods.
    Dark, leafy greens such as spinach, kale and collard greens, and foods high in Omega-3 fatty acids, are suitable for your eyes. Try to incorporate them into your diet.
  • Stay active.
    Being active can help lower your risk of health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, increasing your risk for eye diseases.
  • Wear sunglasses.
    Protecting your eyes, even on cloudy days, from UVA and UVB radiation is essential. Look for sunglasses that block 99% to l 00% of ultraviolet rays.
  • Rest your eyes.
    If you’re working on a computer all day, your eyes can get worn out. Rest your eyes every 20 minutes by looking at something at least 20 feet away for seconds at a time.
