Get a comprehensive eye test every few years.

Visit the options every two years to make sure that your eyes are in good health. 
Many serious eye diseases don’t have noticeable symptoms so it’s always good to get a check up regularly and spot anything early. 

This also means that you update any eye-wear that you may use so you can be up to date with the latest trends as well as benefit from any advances in eye care that have happened since your last visit.

You can even test your eye health over on www.contactlenses.co.uk where they have created two eye challenges for your colour vision and your focus:

Research Your Family History

Many eye diseases are genetic such as albinism, aniridia, colour blindness, corneal dystrophies, glaucoma, night blindness, to name just a few. So make sure to explore and research any family members who have had eye issues in the past and make sure to pass this information on to your eye doctor.

Also, conditions such as diabetes can put your eye health at risk so regular check ups with your doctor will help highlight any potential threats.

Actually Wear Your Eye Wear

If you need glasses or contact lenses, wear them!

There is a myth that wearing corrective lenses will weaken your eyes, it doesn’t. In fact not wearing these when you need them can make your eyes worse.

Wear Sunglasses

Not only does wearing sunglasses make you look fabulous and help you express your personal style. They also protect your eyes from damaging UV rays with polarised sunglasses that block out both UVA and UVB light. Talk about the accessory that just keeps on giving!

Eat Healthy

You are what you eat and a diet of Nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, lutein, zinc, and vitamins C and E can really help with keeping your eyes in their best condition. The myth about eating carrots? Kinda true, they are full of vitamin A which is great for your eye health!
