Maintaining optimum eye health may not be considered a priority for most young adults, particularly with the demands of family, hobbies, and career. Here at our Ohio optical practice, we would like to emphasize the importance of leading a lifestyle that will help you avoid eye problems as much as possible.
Below is a quick guide to making sure that your eyes are still in tip-top shape once you reach your senior years!
1. Quit smoking as soon as you can.
Apart from causing respiratory and cardiovascular problems, it has been shown that prolonged periods cigarette use could also increase your chances of acquiring cataract and age-related macular degeneration later in life. Women who have been smoking during pregnancy are also found out to actually increase their risk of premature delivery.
2. Get enough sleep.
While you’re asleep, your eyes take time to lubricate itself and steer clear of the irritants such as smoke, dust, and allergens.
3. Wear protective sunglasses or eyewear.
Your skin is not the only part of your body which needs sun protection. Your eyes are also highly sensitive from UV rays so wear your sunnies as often as possible when you’re outdoors.
