Follow the 20/20/20 rule

Whether fine detail, intense viewing hobbies – like needlework or cooking – are wearing your eyes out or like just about everyone else out there you’re spending plenty of extra time staring at a small screen that doubles as your phone, give your eyes a break with the 20/20/20 Rule. Every 20 minutes or so look up at something 20 feet away for 20 seconds to give your eyes a rest.

Take Proper Care of Contact Lenses

A wonderful convenience, don’t let contacts become an eye hazard with improper care. Always follow the doctor’s orders on wear and care, including only cleaning in the proper solution and storing correctly in their case.

You are what you eat and eating the right foods can help protect your vision. Try foods like leafy greens, nuts and shellfish to get omega-3 fatty acids, lutein, zinc and vitamins A, E and C.
