Tips for Optimal Eye Health

Protect Your Eyes From The Sun

The National Eye Institute recommends safeguarding your eyes from harmful ultraviolet (UV) and high-energy visible (HEV) rays. Always wear quality sunglasses that block 100 percent of UV rays, especially during peak sunlight hours between 10 am and 3 pm. Cloudy days don’t diminish the sun’s impact, so make sunglasses a daily habit.

Avoid Steroid Eye Drops

While steroid eye drops are commonly prescribed, they can accelerate cataract progression. Consult with your Optometrist or Ophthalmologist to manage conditions without exacerbating cataracts. We prioritize your eye health, providing alternatives that minimize the need for surgery.

Check Your Medications

Over 300 commonly prescribed medications may impact cataract progression. Discuss your medications with your healthcare providers, including your eye doctor, to assess potential effects. If sunlight exposure is unavoidable, wearing sunglasses becomes even more crucial.

Quit Smoking

Smoking significantly increases the risk of developing cataracts. If you smoke, quitting can slow their progression. Take this opportunity to enhance your eye health and overall well-being.

Follow Eye Health Diet Guidelines

Certain vitamins and nutrients, particularly antioxidants, may slow age-related decline in eye health. Incorporate foods rich in antioxidants into your diet, such as dark chocolate, blueberries, strawberries, pecans, carrots, sweet potatoes, and more. Consider omega-3 fatty acids from fish or supplements like Vitamin C and E for additional support.

Taking Control of Your Eye Health

By implementing these tips and maintaining regular eye exams, you empower yourself to manage your cataract diagnosis effectively. Communication with your doctor and incorporating these lifestyle changes can lead to better vision and potentially delay the need for cataract surgery. At Plano Eye Associates, your vision is our priority, and we are here to guide you on your journey to optimal eye health.
