- WEAR EYE PROTECTION WHEN NEEDED.
Up to 90% of eye injuries from sports, yard work, home repair and working in high-risk situations can be avoided with eye protection.
- WEAR GOOD PRESCRIPTION SUNGLASSES TO USE YEAR ROUND.
Everyone in your family including young kids should wear sun with polarized lenses to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays all year long even in the shade and during winter.
- BE SMART WITH DIGITAL SCREENS.
Between computers, smart-phones, e-readers, tablets and TVs, our eyes are constantly exposed to screens. Promote better daily eye care by considering anti-reflective lenses for your eyewear and taking frequent breaks.
- BEST FOOD FOR EYES HEALTH
Personal eye care includes more than just your eyes. Make sure your daily diet includes plenty of fruits and veggies, whole grains and lots of water to hydrate your body from the inside out. Eating well has so many benefits, including maintaining healthy eyes.
- HANDS OFF YOUR EYES
Touching your eyes frequently will expose them to bacteria and germs. Plus, rubbing too hard can irritate your eyes further, or even break a blood vessel.
- TAKE OUT YOUR CONTACTS
Even if your contacts are approved for overnight wear, it’s still best for your eye health to avoid sleeping in contact lenses. Sleeping contact free allows your eyes to breathe and eliminates opportunity for bacteria to grow on your contacts.
- REMOVE MAKEUP
Eye makeup can clog the glands around your eyes and irritate your skin. A better alternative: take a few minutes to carefully remove your makeup before hitting the pillow.
