May is Healthy Vision Month
When it comes to your vision, it pays to have regular checkups. If you haven’t already done it, now is a great time to get an eye exam. The National Eye Institute says:
- Get a dilated eye exam.
- Live a healthy lifestyle, including eating healthy foods, maintaining a healthy weight, managing chronic conditions, and not smoking.
- Know your family history.
- Use protective eye wear.
- Wear sunglasses.
“Taking these steps can help prevent vision loss or blindness from many eye diseases and conditions. In addition, dilated eye exams can detect problems early, when they’re easier to treat.”
Take the first step and schedule your eye exam today.
