We’ve all made New Year’s resolutions—plans to lose weight, get organized or manage our time better. This year, make a resolution that’s easy to keep: taking better care of your eyes. With just one phone call or appointment, you can be on your way to healthier eyes in the new year. Here are some simple things you can do:
Get an eye exam
Many eye diseases don’t cause any symptoms. So a regular eye exam is a good idea even if you think your eyes are healthy. Making an appointment every January helps you remember it.
When should your child have an eye exam? Get the facts on children’s eye exams and resolve to make sure your kids’ eyes are healthy.
Get screened for glaucoma
Glaucoma is called the “silent thief of sight” because it can cause vision loss before you know you have it. If you are 40 or older, you need regular glaucoma screenings. Learn more about glaucoma and request an appointment.
Update your glasses prescription
Do you enjoy reading less than you used to? Get headaches or dry eyes after working at your computer? Your glasses or contact lens prescription could be outdated or wrong for your activities. Contact Optical Solutions to have your eyes and prescription checked.
