In the New Year, many of us will strive to keep new resolutions. At LASIK Vision Centers of Cleveland, we encourage you to consider also making resolutions for your eye care. Your eye care is a very important, but sometimes overlooked, part of your overall health. Aim to keep these resolutions in the year to come:
1. Get a regular eye exam.
Sometimes patients may believe that because their vision has not changed drastically, they do not need to keep annual eye exam appointments. On the contrary, it is very important to have your eyes regularly examined. Not only will your doctor assess and address any changes in your vision, but he or she is also able to recognize any potential issues with the overall health of your eyes.
2. Make sure your contact lens or glasses prescription is up to date.
Are you experiencing frequent eye irritation or headaches? This could be because your contact lens or glasses prescription is out of date. If you stick to your resolution of getting a regular eye exam, your eye doctor will also check your prescription and make you aware of any adjustments.
3. Avoid computer eye strain.
There are many jobs that require long hours in front of a computer screen. While staring at a screen may be unavoidable in order to complete your work, there are many actions you can to take to help you avoid computer eye strain. Some suggestions include taking frequent breaks to look away from your screen, adjusting your computer screen placement and brightness, and remembering to blink often.
4. Give consideration to the long-lasting benefits of LASIK surgery.
If you are tired of the annual expenses associate with contact lenses or would like to reduce your dependence on glasses, it might be time to explore whether you are a candidate for LASIK surgery. LASIK is an investment for which you will see benefits for many years to come.
