It’s a common misconception that the health of our eyes is just up to us. That there is nothing we can do to prevent eye conditions. The truth is that it is not our genetics or our mother’s genes that determine our health, but rather what we do with them that determines our overall health.
Just because we are young does not mean we are healthy enough to take good care of our eyes. Our younger years are the most crucial time to take good care of our eyes and our vision. Healthy eyes and vision are the best way to protect our future.
So how do we take care of our eyes and eye health in our younger years? In my experience, the best way to begin is by being mindful of what you put into your body. The best and easiest way to do this is through a vitamin or nutrient supplement.
There are many things we take in on a daily basis that we never stop to think about. Some of these things could be causing damage to our eyes. When the eye becomes damaged, it is called macular degeneration. This disease is the leading cause of blindness for people that are older than 65.
Vision is part of eye care. Remember the first time you got your first pair of glasses you probably didn’t know much about them. At that point, your vision was pretty much what you would have expected.
It’s important to make sure your eyes are receiving the proper eye care in their formative years. As you get older, things tend to change in your lifestyle. You may not have the time to drive to the optometrist’s office each month. It is highly recommended that you schedule an appointment at least every 6 months to keep your eyes and your vision on their longest life possible.
Remember that eye care is something you must always remember. Our eyes are one of the most valuable assets we possess.
A single lapse in eye care will prove to be more damaging than being struck by lightning. The sooner you understand that the sooner you can protect your eyes. Eye care doesn’t just cover how to brush your teeth, how to shave your face, and how to take care of your feet, it includes all the details that make the difference between a clear, healthy, and well-trained eye.
For example, if you want a consistent appearance you will need to continue to maintain a healthy diet, regular exercise, and a well-balanced diet, and proper supplementation to help the body cope with all the stress that comes along with everyday life. Once you begin to recognize how important it is to your body to provide the basic health of your eyes, it will become easier to take good care of them.
Don’t be afraid to be happy and healthy. Being “healthy” is not just a cliché, it’s important. Try to find the positive side of the bad days, look for solutions to problems rather than letting them take over, and always remember that eye care is essential to your overall health.
Not only should you wear sunglasses when it’s too hot or it’s raining and light to moderate sun exposure. Go to the office with eye protection as well. Allergies can make a person a horrible candidate for contact lenses and eye surgery. Please don’t let the allure of looking good blind you to your need for good eye care.
