Vision tends to be something we take for granted. For those of us who have relatively good vision, we seem to underestimate how much we rely on vision for nearly every task. As our time spent staring at computer screens, televisions, smart phones and devices increases, so does our risk for damaging our eyes.
March is Save Your Vision Month, which emphasizes raising awareness for good eye care. When it comes to eye care, we tend to wait until problems arise despite the obvious benefits of being proactive and getting eye checks regularly.
Eye exams can produce nearly immediate benefits. For example, if you are having trouble with your vision, prescription eye glasses or contact lenses can easily correct it. This is much more effective than waiting and potentially causing more damage to your eyes. And, did you know, diabetes is often diagnosed by an eye exam? Glaucoma can be quickly detected and treated with regular eye tests, too.
If you must stare at a computer screen at work, problems like eye strain or dry eyes may arise. While you may not be able to cut down on screen time, there are ways to combat these problems.
