May is Healthy Vision Month

Being healthy is about more than just eating right and exercising regularly. Your eyes are an important part of your health too. Here are five tips to help you keep your vision healthy.

Get an eye exam – A dilated eye exam can detect early signs of disease.

Know your family history – Many eye conditions are hereditary, and knowing your history can help determine if there is a higher risk for certain eye diseases.

Wear your shades – Sunglasses are more than just a great fashion accessory, they also protect your eyes from the sun’s UV rays.

Eat your veggies – A diet with lots of fruits and vegetables helps keep your eyes healthy.

Use protective eye wear – Safety glasses, goggles, and eye guards can prevent sports or work related injuries to your eyes.
