Healthy vision should be taken care of ALL year round but in honor of Healthy Vision month are some KEY things you can do to help spread awareness and take better care of your eye health.
First: Try and eat more healthy foods for your eyes!
Kale, Carrots, and Spinach are GREAT to incorporate into your diet!
Second: Do more physical activity!
Physical activity 3-5 times a week comes with LOTS of great benefits.
It not only reduces stress it helps protect your eyes from serious diseases and helps you stay at a healthy weight!
“Anything that gets your heart beating faster can help keep your eyes healthy — try going for a quick jog after work.” AOA.org
Third: There should be time in your day when you have to get your eyes a break!
By break, we mean off the computer and phone! If you spend a lot of time on technology you can sometimes forget to even BLINK.
AOA. org had great insight about the 20/20/20 rule!
“Every 20 minutes, look away from the screens and focus about 20 feet in front of you for 20 seconds. This reduces eyestrain and helps your eyes (and you!) feel better at the end of the day.”
