Taking care of your eyes should be a priority just like eating healthy and engaging in physical activity. To keep your eyes healthy, have a comprehensive dilated eye exam. It is the best way to determine if you need glasses or contacts, or are in the early stages of any eye-related disease.

Although older adults tend to have more vision problems, preschoolers may have problems as well. Growing children constantly use their eyes, both at play and in the classroom. It is important for children to have their vision checked at least once before age 6, even if there are no signs of eye problems. Finding and treating eye problems early can save a child’s sight.

Your eyes are your windows to the world. Living healthy can lower your risk of eye disease. Learn how to keep them healthy and safe. Start taking steps now to protect your eyesight. Here are some steps to get you started.
