FIVE FALL EYE CARE TIPS

FIVE FALL EYE CARE TIPS

 

Fall is here bringing cooler temperatures, sweaters, hoodies, boots, and bonfires. School has also begun, and with that come the demands and stresses of heavier computer use. Fall maintenance projects may have you outdoors more focusing on home maintenance tasks, which means added risks to your eyes. Here are a few things to remember when taking care of your eyes as you transition from the summer sun to autumn activities:

EYE PROTECTION:

 Whether chopping firewood, cleaning out the garden, mucking horse stalls, camping, enjoying a bonfire, or trimming trees, your eyes are susceptible to damage. A good pair of safety glasses may save your vision when something comes a little too close for comfort. The next time you find yourself out shopping, grab a pair of clear eye protection for you or a loved one if yours are damaged, missing or if you simply don’t have a pair on hand.

SUNGLASSES:

 Just as your body can get a sunburn when it is cloudy, your eyes are sensitive to the UV rays bouncing around each season. Keep those sunglasses handy during the colder months as well. Did you know that state troopers are taught to wear their sunglasses in heavy rain? Your mileage may vary, but for many people, it does help vision while driving in rainstorms.

FALL ALLERGENS:

 Swollen, itchy, watery eyes are no fun. If you suffer from allergies, follow your doctor’s advice for medication and treatment. Additionally, stay indoors when you can if you are particularly susceptible to allergens. Drive with your windows up and have the cabin air filter changed in your car. Change the furnace filter faithfully in your home. Once a month is recommended, but if you are struggling, there is no reason not to change it more frequently. There are also several good eye compresses that may relieve some of the symptoms if you want to avoid medications.

EYE EXAMS:

 With school starting, it is a good idea to get yearly exams set up for the children. And why not make it a family affair? Eye stress can contribute to headaches, tension, and lack of concentration. Give your kids an advantage by making sure that they can read well and see the blackboard, whiteboard or projector screen. Don’t forget about the college students in your life. They might not take the time to have their eyesight checked with busy schedules and homework.

COMPUTER PRESCRIPTION GLASSES:

If you wear bifocals and spend a decent amount of time in front of the computer, this new prescription will be life changing. Tension from adjusting your field of vision constantly from near to far can be fatiguing. Let us know when you come in for your exam if this type of lenses will help you.
Take good care of your eyes, and they will take good care of you for many years. Enjoy the season!
