Understanding and Protecting the Health of Your Eyes
A few years ago, I realised I had a long routine at the beginning and end of each day to take care of my body (yoga and cardio), my skin (exfoliating and cleansing) and my mind (reading and crossword puzzles). However, I had nothing in place to take care of my eyes. Arguably, as much as I love to be in shape and have great skin, I appreciate the ability to see even more. After that epiphany, I started taking better care of my eyes. I studied the risks of sun exposure and began to wear sunglasses, but that was only one step of the process. Hi, my name is Anne. Welcome to my blog. Take a look, and I hope these posts help your eyes.
The first time you wore prescription glasses, you probably thought that was that - your vision was corrected. An optometrist deemed that they were necessary and arranged your prescription lenses while you chose the frames.
Sure, that can be the end of the matter for many years, but you will find that you'll need to upgrade your glasses at some point, and ideally, several more times during your life. But how exactly do you know when it's time to think about getting a new pair of glasses?
It's common knowledge that getting a good amount of exercise is imperative in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Yet, while many make a conscious effort to stretch and flex their arms, legs, back, and neck, very few people go the same kind of effort when it comes to taking care of their eyes.
Just like the rest of your body, your vision is something that needs to be actively taken care of in order for it to function at maximum capacity, and can be taken care of by means of exercise.
