Healthy Aging

As you age, you might notice changes in your vision. For instance, you might have trouble distinguishing colors and need more time to adjust to changing levels of light. At Focus Vision Optometry, we have made it our full-time job to improve and preserve eyesight for people in Inland Empire, CA. But what if we told you that you also have an active role to play when it comes to aging and vision? Here are some of the things you might consider doing.

Healthy Aging

Wear Sunglasses

Your eyes are very sensitive organs, and prolonged exposure to the sun can cause them problems. That’s why wearing a pair of high-quality sunglasses as you step outside is essential.

Ensure that the sunglasses have 100% UVA and UVB protection. It is also crucial to pick a pair of sunglasses that fully covers your eyes. You can find prescription sunglasses from Focus Vision Optometry and keep your vision in check. Wearing the right pair of sunglasses reduces your chances of complications like cataracts, glaucoma, skin cancer, and macular degeneration.

Eat a Nutrient-Rich Diet

You might wonder if there is a relationship between your eyes and what you eat. The truth is what you eat affects your eyesight significantly. Therefore, as you age, add powerful vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals to your diet to improve your overall eye health. Some nutrients that help with eyesight include vitamin C, vitamin E, and zinc.  

Quit Smoking

If you enjoy a smoke, you might consider quitting to promote the healthy aging of your eyes. While most people only associate smoking with lung cancer and heart disease, it can also affect your vision.

Studies show that smoking increases the risk of eye problems like glaucoma, Dry Eye Syndrome, and macular degeneration. Therefore, it would be a good idea to quit.

Protect Your Eyes From Blue Light

Does your job involve spending hours in front of a computer screen? If yes, you might consider ways to reduce eye strain from blue light. Long exposure could lead to fatigue, difficulty focusing, and dry eyes. It can also damage retinal cells, leading to vision problems like age-related macular degeneration.

It would be a good idea to decrease your time in front of the screen or take breaks. Besides, you can purchase screen filters to reduce the amount of blue light that reaches your eyes. Other alternatives include computer glasses and anti-reflective lenses.

Explore Your Options for Healthy Aging

The conversation about preserving your eyesight as you age is a broad one. You can always talk to a professional at Focus Vision Optometry in the cities of Beaumont, Calimesa, Moreno Valley, Redlands and San Jacinto, CA, to find options to protect your eyes. Call us today at (888) 505-4555 for more information or to schedule an appointment with our eye doctor.
