It’s vital to take care of your eyes. Poor vision makes it harder to handle the activities of daily living, including reading, driving, and meal preparation. On the positive side – many eye problems and diseases can be treated if caught early. Seeing an eye care professional to examine your eyes for signs of vision problems or eye diseases is the best way to find out if you need glasses or contacts, or are in the early stages of a serious but treatable eye disease.

Be especially protective of your eyes by wearing sunglasses that block ultraviolet A and B radiation. Also – wear protective eyewear when playing sports or doing activities around the home.
