Take control of your eye health on a daily basis by using these tips from the National Eye Institute.
- Wear Sunglasses – Wearing sunglasses protects your eyes from the sun even on cloudy days. Look for sunglasses that will block 99% or 100% of UVA and UVB radiation.
- Wear Safety Eyewear – Protect your eyes during sports, construction work, or home repairs by using safety glasses and goggles. Most vision care providers and sporting goods stores have these available to buy.
- Rest Your Eyes – Take a break from looking at a computer every 20 minutes or look at an item 20 ft. away for 20 sec. of time to give your eyes some rest.
- Contact Lenses – To prevent infection with your contact lenses, make sure to wash your hands before you put them in and take them out. Use contact solution to clean your lenses and replace them when you’re supposed to.
