The health of your eyes is an important aspect of your overall health and well-being. The eyes are delicate and need to be protected from injury and disease as your eyesight cannot get any better when it is damaged.

Wearing sunglasses with UV protection can help protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays. The Ultraviolet rays can damage the eyes from exposure and can increase the risk of eye problems including cataracts and macular degeneration – leading to decreased vision over time.

Limiting screen time, especially at a younger age, can protect you from fatigue and eye-strain. Follow the 20-20-20 rule: Every 20 minutes, take a break of 20-seconds away from your screen or device and look at something 20 feet away – this will help avoid eye strain symptoms.

Changing and improving your diet to include healthier foods like fruits, vegetables and fish can help keep your eyes healthy as they’re rich in vitamins that are beneficial for your vision and keeping the eyes in good health.

An eye examination using Optical Coherence Tomography, or OCT, is an advanced type of eye scan for people of all ages and allows instant and early diagnosis of numerous common conditions including Glaucoma, Age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and Diabetic Retinopathy.

By following simple steps, you can help maintain good eye health and protect your eyes. If you would like to know more, speak to a member of our team by contacting your local Martyn Kemp Opticians.
