What are some of the most common eye conditions?
How can I protect my eyes?
The retina is vital to your vision and can be injured or become detached in hazardous work environments or during ball sports. Be sure to wear shatter-and-impact-resistant eyewear when you participate in any strenuous or risky activity.
How can I improve my eye health?
A healthy lifestyle and proper nutrition can help maintain optimal eye health. Antioxidants like vitamins C and E, along with carotenoids, such as Lutein and Zeaxanthin, may even reduce the progression of certain eye diseases.
