May is Healthy Vision Month, a time to prioritize our eye health and take proactive steps to protect our vision. At Newsom Eye, we are committed to helping our patients maintain optimal eye health through education, advanced care, and innovative treatments. This month, we encourage everyone to focus on their eye health and learn about the various ways to keep their vision sharp and clear.

The Importance of Healthy Vision Month

Healthy Vision Month is a national observance designed to raise awareness about the importance of regular eye exams and the steps we can take to preserve our vision. Vision problems can often develop gradually, without noticeable symptoms, making regular eye check-ups crucial for early detection and treatment of eye conditions.

Key Eye Health Tips:

  • Regular Eye Exams: Schedule comprehensive eye exams every 1-2 years, even if you do not have any vision problems. Eye exams can detect conditions like glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy early, when they are most treatable.
  • Protective Eyewear: Wear sunglasses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays to protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet radiation. If you play sports or work in environments with potential eye hazards, use appropriate protective eyewear.
  • Healthy Diet: Eat a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and omega-3 fatty acids. Foods like leafy greens, fish, and nuts are beneficial for eye health.
  • Quit Smoking: Smoking increases the risk of developing age-related eye diseases and can damage the optic nerve. If you smoke, seek help to quit.
  • Screen Time Management: Reduce eye strain by following the 20-20-20 rule: every 20 minutes, take a 20-second break and look at something 20 feet away.
  • Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water to keep your eyes moist and prevent dryness.
