February Eye Observance

Testing aids in TreatmentTesting aids in Treatment February is National "Save Your Vision" Month

According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), February is "Save Your Vision" Month. Many Eye diseases and disorders become more common as we age. Advances in ophthalmology allow most people to maintain good vision as they grow older. Many eye problems can be prevented or corrected if detected in their early stages. Learn what you can do to preserve your sight at any stage of life.

 

Regular Eye Examinations- As with all medicine, early diagnosis and treatment can help people with their overall health. Just as with a physical, it makes sense to visit an ophthalmologist for a routine eye exam. Regular eye examinations by an ophthalmologist are the best way to detect eye conditions early, while they can be treated. Taking care of your eyes and getting regular examinations can prevent many leading causes of blindness.

Protect Your Eyes From the Sun- Like your skin, your eyes never forget UV exposure. Studies show that exposure to bright sunlight may increase the risk of developing cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (AMD), both leading causes of vision loss among older adults. UV exposure, wind and dust can also cause pterygium, benign growths on the eye's surface. Select sunglasses that block ultraviolet rays. Don't be deceived by color or cost. The ability to blcok UV light is not dependent on the darkness of the lens or the price tag.

Prevent Eye Injuries- More than one million people suffer from eye injuries each year in the United States. Ninety percent of these injuries could have been prevented if the individual had been wearing appropriate protective eyewear. Remember to shield your eyes appropriately when playing sports and during common household tasks such as working with chemicals, mowing the lawn and working on your car.
