Healthy Aging and Eye Care

As we age, our eyes go through a lot of changes. Fortunately, there are many things that seniors can do to protect their vision and their eyes as they grow older. Exquisite Eye Care serves the Houston, TX, area and explains what eye care steps to take to maintain the health of your eyes.

Watch Your Diet 

Specifically, try to eat more fruits and vegetables. As you age, your eyes will need more nutrients, and the best way to get nutrition is through a healthy diet. Also, try to cut down on the amount of sugar you eat. It becomes more difficult to properly digest sugar as your body ages. This often leads to serious diseases such as diabetes and heart problems. These conditions can have a devastating effect on your eye health.

Get Regular Check-Ups 

One of the biggest threats to eye health is diseases such as diabetes. Getting regular check-ups with a general practitioner and taking steps to keep chronic conditions under control will help prevent these conditions from affecting your eyes.

Schedule Regular Eye Exams 

Even if you are not having vision problems, it's important to have an annual eye exam. These exams can be used to establish a baseline of health for your eyes and will help ensure problems are caught early.

Follow Your Optometrist's Instructions 

Wear your glasses or contact lenses on a regular schedule, take any medication as instructed, and schedule follow-up appointments to deal with any problems that come up. Make taking care of your eyes a priority.
