March is National Save-Your-Vision Month
Our eyes are an important part of our life and should not be taken for granted.
Below are some tips to protect your eyes and save your vision from sight-threatening conditions.
- Get your eyes checked regularly. The best solution to prevent any eye problems is to have regular routine eye checkups.
- Take Breaks. Give your eyes a break from digital devices and follow the 20-20-20 rule. Take a 20 second break every 20 minutes and view something 20 feet away.
- Keep your distance. The brightness and glare from computers, tablets, smartphones and televisions can lead to eyestrain after excess use. Position your computer screen 20 to 24 inches from your eyes.
- Eat Healthy Foods. What we eat is as important to our eye health as our overall health. Fruits and vegetables have nutrients that help to keep our eyes healthy.
