Keeping Eyes Healthy

Your eyes are some of the most important organs in your body, and it’s important to take care of them to maintain good vision and overall health. In this blog post, we’ll explore some of the best ways to keep your eyes healthy, and why Peermed Optometrist is the best place to go if you need to get your eyes tested.

  1. Get Regular Eye Exams: The first step to maintaining healthy eyes is to get regular eye exams. Eye exams can help detect and prevent eye diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration. At Peermed Optometrist, our experienced optometrists use the latest technology to perform comprehensive eye exams that can detect early signs of eye diseases.
  2. Eat a Balanced Diet: A balanced diet can help promote healthy eyesight. Foods rich in vitamins A, C, and E, as well as omega-3 fatty acids, can help protect your eyes from age-related vision problems. Foods such as leafy greens, citrus fruits, nuts, and fish are all good choices for promoting healthy eyes.
  3. Protect Your Eyes from the Sun: UV rays from the sun can cause damage to your eyes, including cataracts and macular degeneration. Wear sunglasses that block out 99% to 100% of UV-A and UV-B radiation when you’re outside. At Peermed Optometrist, we can provide you with high-quality sunglasses that offer optimal UV protection.
  4. Take Breaks from Screen Time: Too much screen time can cause digital eye strain, which can lead to headaches, dry eyes, and blurred vision. Take frequent breaks from your computer or phone screen, and look away from the screen every 20 minutes to give your eyes a rest.
  5. Quit Smoking: Smoking is bad for your health, including your eyes. Smoking can increase your risk of developing cataracts, macular degeneration, and other eye diseases. Quitting smoking can help protect your eyes and improve your overall health.

We offer a range of services, including comprehensive eye exams, prescription glasses, and contact lenses.
