20s and 30s Eyes
The single best way to protect your vision is through regular professional eye examinations. You may be at increased risk for eye problems if there is a family history of eye disease, diabetes, high blood pressure or poor vision. In between examinations, if you notice a change in your vision – or you think your eye may be injured in any way – contact your eye care professional as soon as possible.
Getting enough rest, eating foods rich in antioxidants, taking special care in applying cosmetics and hair spray, and – most of all – washing your hands often to help keep your eyes free of germs and bacteria that cause infections are some healthy habits that are important to maintain proper eye health.
At this age, you’ve got a lot on your plate. But you also have more Vision Correction options than before to address long-sightedness (hyperopia), short-sightedness (myopia) or astigmatism. Which means it’s also a good time to learn more about how your eyes work, to understand why you have good vision today – and what changes you may begin to see as you reach your mid- to late 30s.
A regular eye exam is the best way to protect your eyesight – and an easy precaution to take. It is particularly important if you notice a change in your vision, if your eye is injured in any way, or if you have a family history of eye disease.
