If you currently have great eyesight, you might not give the issue of eye health a second thought. Over time, however, many of us will experience vision challenges. With these smart tips, you can maintain your precious eyesight as long as possible:
Get an eye exam
We should all have our eyes professionally evaluated every 1-3 years, since diseases and other eye conditions can often be treated successfully if caught early. According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, factors such as age, eye health and family history determine how often you should have a complete eye exam.
Avoid computer-related eye strain
Studies show that eye strain and other troublesome visual symptoms occur in 50% to 90% of computer workers. You can minimize computer-related eye strain by using proper lighting, minimizing glare, blinking often, doing simple eye exercises, and taking frequent breaks.
Protect against sun damage all year long
Protective eyewear is not only important in sunny months, but all year long since ultraviolet (UV) rays damage sensitive cells in the eyes, eventually affecting vision. Look for glasses that block at least 99% of UV rays, with lenses large enough to completely cover the eye.
Supplement vision-healthy nutrients
Vitamins A and C, carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin, and bilberry extract are especially
important for healthy vision, as well as reducing your risk of macular degeneration, glaucoma,
presbyopia─a condition where one’s ability to focus on nearby objects progressively
diminishes─and cataracts, cloudy areas in the lens inside the eye that can greatly impair your
vision and may lead to blindness.
What if you could simply consume a few daily capsules to ensure you obtain optimal levels of all of these vision-protecting nutrients, plus a host of others? EnergyFirst Lutein Plus Eye Formula helps maintain healthy vision as well as fighting macular degeneration and the formation of cataracts.
Take steps to protect your vision now, and enjoy the benefits for years to come.
