Your vision is very important to us! That’s why we make it our goal to ensure your eyes are the healthiest they can be. And while routine eye appointments are beneficial, there’s a lot you can be doing to keep your vision in tip-top shape, too!
Remember, vision screenings aren’t the same as comprehensive eye exams. If you or your child has had one, don’t substitute it for going to see your eye doctor. People who are not properly trained to perform a comprehensive eye health examination can miss important signs of problems and eye diseases. Examinations are not only about your vision, they are about your health!
Follow these tips for good eye health:
A diet rich in fruits and vegetables, particularly dark leafy greens such as spinach, kale, and collard greens is important for keeping your eyes healthy. Make sure you’re filling up with foods full of omega-3s, too, like salmon and tuna!
Talk it Out
Have a chat with your doctor about how your overall health affects your vision. It’s crucial to maintain a healthy weight, especially since a lot of diseases like diabetes can lead to vision loss.
Staying healthy is about more than just eating healthy! Maintaining a proper weight, keeping blood pressure in check, and exercising regularly are all great ways to care for your eyes.
Keep a Routine
Regardless of your age or physical health, it’s important to have regular, comprehensive eye exams to catch potential problems or identify symptoms before they worsen.

Contact Lenses Can Fight Dry Eyes!
Did you know? Nearly five million Americans over the age of 50 suffer from Dry Eye Syndrome. If you are part of the number, you’re in luck! There are lens options available that are specifically designed to help keep your dry eyes moisturised and comfortable.
Silicone Hydrogel Lenses
If you want long-wear contacts, then these silicone hydrogel lenses are a great choice. Unlike regular soft lenses, silicone lenses allow up to five times more oxygen to pass through to the cornea. This increased permeability reduces the symptoms associated with dry eyes and makes for a more comfortable wear if you’re working long hours.
Daily Disposable Lenses
Sometimes the only way to combat dry eyes is to wear contacts you get to toss every night. This daily renewal is going to help your eyes simply because you’re not wearing out your contacts... or your eyes. While they seem a little pricier, the cost will be offset since you won’t be paying for eye care products anymore.
Don’t let your scratchy, red eyes keep you from enjoying the benefits of contact lenses! Stop by our office and our eye care professionals will help you find the best solution for your dry eyes.
