Taking care of your eyes allows you to enjoy every aspect of living to the fullest. Here are some important steps you can take to protect your eye health:
Get Your Annual Eye Exam
Getting an annual eye exam helps catch any vision changes or health issues, often leading to better treatment and correction options! Parents, it’s important to make sure your children start these as early as preschool and kindergarten, but it’s never too late to get your yearly exam.
Always Wear Sunglasses
According to our eyewear specialists, it’s imperative to wear sunglasses when the UV Index is at 2.0 or higher. Did you know that in Florida, our average UV Index reaches as high as 10.0 every single day? It’s vital to keep your eye’s protected from the sun’s harsh UV rays, even on cloudy days, too.
Be Mindful of Screen Time
Technology that we use every day such as computers, tablets, smartphones, and LED TVs emit artificial blue light, resulting in vision risks. Overexposure to blue light can lead to long-term vision loss, retina damage, migraines, blurry vision, eye strain, and even insomnia. One of the advanced lens technologies we offer is BluTech Lenses, which filters blue light through a unique patented combination of Ocular Lens Pigment and melanin. BluTech Lenses may improve your sleep quality, increase productivity, improve night vision, and help maintain depth and color perception.
