GET YOUR EYES CHECKED
September is eyecare month, so here are some helpful tips from Vision Optometrists to ensure that your eyes, known as ‘the windows to your soul’, stay healthy for life.
Consult your eyecare practitioner at least once a year, especially if you are over the age of 40. Itchy, red, burning, weepy and watery eyes indicate that something is wrong. Don’t wait for these symptoms to worsen: consult your eyecare practitioner immediately. Make sure that young children are screened before the age of three and undergo a full eye examination before going to school. Practise a healthy eating plan, including drinking loads of water. Protect your eyes against harmful radiation by wearing good sunglasses. Make sure that children wear sunglasses, or at least a cap, whenever they are outdoors.
