Good vision helps you perform well—at home, at work or behind the wheel. That’s why it’s important to take a few simple steps to make sure you help keep your eyesight at its best. A regular eye exam is the best way to protect your eyesight and an easy precaution to take.
Protecting your overall health goes a long way toward also protecting your vision. There are many steps you can take to help maintain eye health as you age.

Essential Omega 3 fatty acids are important to your health and the health of the macula, the part of the eye responsible for central vision.
The natural benefits of these foods help preserve your overall health and vision. It’s never too late to start eating well. Some foods are particularly healthy for the eyes and should be included as part of a balanced diet:

Anyone who has spent a few hours on the computer has probably felt some of the effects. Now, more than ever, it is vital that we remain mindful of our screen time. Studies show that negative effects on eye health accompany increased smartphone usage.
This condition is also known as Computer Vision Syndrome; it encompasses a range of symptoms as a result of our increasingly prolonged use of digital electronic devices. Looking at any electronic digital device (such as a computer, smartphone or tablet) for lengthy periods of time can have negative effects on your vision and well-being.
