To keep excellent vision a priority, make sure that you find doctors you can trust, do exercises for your eyes when applicable, wear sunglasses when appropriate, and be smart about screen time regarding computers, tablets, and cell phones.

Find Doctors You Can Trust

Finding a good eye doctor is a big part of eye health. Ideally, you want to find someone who is experienced, consistent, and who you can keep going to over the years so they will be able to spot any trends in your vision. The doctor will know when to prescribe glasses, and will also tell you about options regarding eye surgeries if you ever want to take that route.

Do Eye Exercises

Did you know that there are exercises for your eyes that you can do to strengthen them? For as much attention as people put into strengthening their bodies through physical activity, there are certain things that you can do for your eyes as well! Though you may not necessarily improve your vision by utilizing eye exercises, you can at least hope to keep the parts and pieces of your eyes stronger and more flexible over time, thereby requiring less correction as you get older. You can usually do eye exercises when you’re alone as well, so it’s not something you have to do obviously in front of a group.

Wear Sunglasses When Appropriate

Eyestrain and eye damage can occur if you spend a lot of time out in the sun without wearing sunglasses.  For people with naturally sensitive eyes, wearing sunglasses for eye health has got to be something that you keep as a top priority. Not only will you be able to see better because you’re not squinting, but you’ll be preventing long-term damage.

Be Smart About Screen Time

More and more, you’re going to start seeing reports about how staring at screens for too long during the day is bad for your eyes. Because the screen is a fixed distance away from your eyes, you can start to lose flexibility in your eyes if you never have to work them other than that distance. Neck strain can also come from the unusual positions that people stare at computer monitors are cell phones, and so it is often paired in combination with eye distress.
