1. The 20/20/20 Rule
2. Wear sunglasses
We know we should be wearing our sunglasses in the summer to block the sun, however the sun’s UV rays can be damaging all year round. Don’t forget, our sunglasses offer 100% UV protection so are great to block any rays and prevent permanent damage that can be done from looking into the sun. Plus, they make the perfect accessory for your winter and summer outfits.
3. Healthy Lifestyle
Maintaining a healthy diet, making sure that you are getting enough sleep and staying hydrated will improve your overall health (including your eyes). Eating a diet with plenty of fruit and veg, nuts and whole grains is a great way to ensure you're getting the nutrients you need for good eye health. As well as this, sleeping between 7-8 hours a night and staying hydrated will keep your eyes feeling refreshed and healthy. Our eyes need rest just as much as we do!
4. Protect your eyes
5. Regular eye tests
Eye tests can help you spot changes in your vision and detect changes in your eye health early enough to treat them. They can detect a whole host of things, from high blood pressure to diabetes, infections and more. Getting your eyes checked is really important for your overall health!
Changes in your sight become more common as you get older, so it is important to get your eyes checked so you can be given new prescription glasses if you need them, or get new glasses if your prescription changes. Not wearing glasses can cause headaches and eye strain, so it's good to catch this before these symptoms appear.
Eye tests also mean you can visit your favourite eyewear brand (not mentioning any names...) in store or online. You can either refresh the IOLLAs you've got with your new prescription, or even upgrade your look so you're always on trend.
