Preventing Vision Problems

 

111   

Though some vision problems are the natural results of aging, there are things you can do to help

prevent many common eye problems and maintain your vision longer.

Focus on Nutrition

Research shows that eating a healthy diet that includes fruits, green leafy vegetables and fish and liver

promotes eye health and may help to reduce your risk of developing some serious eye problems. Consider

taking vitamins or dietary supplements daily, particularly those formulated specifically for eye health, to

supplement the essential nutrients that support your vision. You should always consult your doctor before

adding any vitamin or mineral supplements to your diet. Maintaining a healthy weight can also help prevent

or control diseases such as diabetes, which can cause vision problems.

Quit Smoking

Research indicates that smoking is a risk factor for degenerative eye disease. Stop smoking as early as

possible to help reduce the risk of developing AMD.

Wear Sunglasses

When you are outdoors in bright sunlight, it is a good idea to wear sunglasses that block 100 percent of

the sun's harmful UV rays. Polarized sunglasses also eliminate glare, which lessens eyestrain.

Prevent Injuries

When you are playing sports, mowing, doing home maintenance projects or performing other tasks that

may cause eye injuries, wear safety glasses or goggles to protect your eyes. You can prevent most eye

injuries with simple protective eyewear.

 

Get Regular Eye Exams

Schedule regular exams for everyone in your family, particularly children and seniors whose vision can

change relatively rapidly. Your eye doctor can catch many eye problems early and provide treatment to

prevent permanent vision damage.

Reduce Eyestrain

Ask your eye doctor about special coatings for the lenses of your glasses that can reduce glare, reflections,

fogging and scratches. There are even special glasses to reduce the strain of staring at computers for long

periods of time.

Keep Your Contact Lenses Clean and Replace Them as Recommended

Follow your eye doctor's instructions about how long to keep your contact lenses in your eyes and how

frequently you should replace them. 

In addition, be sure to follow the care and disinfection instructions specific to your contact lenses. Dirty

contact lenses can irritate your eyes and cause serious eye infections. Improper care and use of contacts can

lead to redness, pain, swelling and infection.
