8 tips for Healthier Eyes

Ready to feel better about your eyes?!

As a new parent of an eleven-month old, I have been struggling to find time to sit down and do leisure reading, and so when I came across this article with a few tips that can help me feel better about my eyes, I thought I must share this with you.  I already do five of the eight recommended tips, and it does make a difference in how my eyes feel.  I use the computer for a good majority of my working hours, I did find that resting 20 seconds after 20 minutes of staring at the monitor helps relieve my eyes of unnecessary eye strain (I also started using my new Eyezen lenses with blue light protection, more on that on a later blog).  I need to work on tip #5 and start being a bit more active, although my son does have me running up and down the stairs more now than ever!  Try some of these out yourself and lets work on having healthy eyes for a long time!

HEALTHY VISION MONTH!!

Preventative care is key to ensure we detect problems with the eyes and body before it's too late.  The National Eye Institute has recommendations on how to ensure healthy vision and we at Vive can help with 100% of them!  

8 systemic diseases that can be detected through the eye

When people say that the eyes are the windows to the soul, they are right!  The eyes can tell us more about your health than you think.  Here's a list of conditions that can affect your eyes.

Diabetes

High Blood Pressure

High cholesterol

Syphilis

Brain Tumors

Fabry's Disease

Myasthenia Gravis

FAP (familial adenomatous polyposis)

Many of these conditions are asymptomatic at early stages.  A simple eye exam can help detect these and many other conditions.  Remember, a healthy eye is more than being able to see 20/20.  Here at Vive Optometry we believe in preventative care, have your eyes checked yearly no matter how young or wise you might be.
