August is National Eye Exam Month!

August is National Eye Exam Month! Which means it is the perfect time to get your eyes checked. If you are between the ages of 40 and 65, you should get your eyes checked every 2 to 4 years. If you are 65 or older, you should make sure to get your eyes checked every 1 to 2 years. If you have a history of eye disease or a chronic illness that is known to affect your vision, you should get your eyes checked more regularly.

There are different ways which you can protect your eyes from any long-term issues, including:

  • Use a clean towel and water to wipe your eyelids when washing your face to prevent infection.
  • Do not use other people’s eye medications or glasses.
  • Get a healthy amount of rest every night.
  • Make sure to eat the right amount of vitamin A and proteins.
  • Always have good lighting and take short breaks to rest your eyes when you are watching TV or using the computer.
  • Do not read in a moving vehicle, or while in bed.
  • Always wear UV protected sunglasses while out in the sun.
