Do you currently have good eye health and want to keep it that way? Maybe you’ve already experienced a decline in your eyesight and would like to slow the aging process?
The fact is, most people over age 40 experience what is known as “old eyes” because lenses lose flexibility with age. As a result, many people require reading glasses by age 50. While this may be an inevitable result of aging, other eye problems don’t have to be.
Thankfully, good eye health, in general, is something over which we have a certain amount of control.
Basic Eye Care Tips
Below are some basic eye care tips that can play a significant role in maintaining healthy eyes for a lifetime.
- Avoid staying outdoors under direct sunlight for extended periods without protective eyewear. Too much sun exposure increases your risk for cataracts and melanoma.
- When choosing sunglasses, pick ones with gray or green-gray lenses and 100% UVA and UVB protection. Also, consider a wrap-around design if you spend a lot of time outside.
