Healthy Tips

1. Regular Eye Tests

Everyone should have an eye exam and vision test at least once every two years - even if there is no change in your vision.

An eye examination can often pick up the first signs of an eye condition before you notice any changes in your vision. This can lead to you getting vital treatment at the right time, which could save your sight.

If You are Diabetic you should have an eye exam soon after you are diagnosed and then at least annually or at shorter intervals as directed by your Ophthalmologist. If you have a family history of Glaucoma your eyes and vision should be checked

2. Stop Smoking

Did you know smoking can double the risk of developing age-related macular degeneration, a leading cause of sight loss?

3. Eat Healthily and watch your weight

Eating a diet low in saturated fats but rich in green leafy vegetables such as spinach and broccoli may help protect against cataracts and AMD. Oranges, kiwis, nuts, seeds and oily fish may also help prevent and slow down some eye conditions

Taking supplements is not a substitute for a healthy diet. It is important to maintain a healthy weight. Obesity can increase the risk of developing diabetes, which in turn could lead to sight loss.

4. Keep your eyes safe in the sun

UVA and UVB rays in sunlight can harm your eyes. Wearing sunglasses, glasses or contact lenses with built in UV filter will protect your eyes.
