For even the most health-conscious people, eye health isn't always a top priority, and it can sometimes fall by the wayside. The fact is, our eyes deserve just as much care and attention as the rest of our bodies.
At Cornerstone Care Community Health Centers, we have several vision centers and recently added a new location in Waynesburg! At Cornerstone Care Vision Center of Waynesburg, Dr. Jeffrey Weaver and his team will offer comprehensive routine eye care services for patients of all ages. With a more spacious environment and new, more accurate technology, our patients will be able to receive the high-quality eye care they deserve.
Vision Health Tips from Your Eye Care Doctor
Along with regular eye exams, there are other things you can do to keep your eyes healthy. Here are a few tips:
1. Protect Your Eyes from the Sun.
Wear sunglasses when you're outdoors, even on cloudy days -- this will help protect your eyes from harmful UV rays.
2. Practice Good Contact Lens Hygiene
If you wear contact lenses, be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions for cleaning and care to avoid eye infections.
3. Give Your Eyes a Rest
If you work at a computer all day, take breaks every 20 minutes or so to look away from the screen and focus on something else in the room.
4. Stop Smoking
Smoking is one of the leading causes of preventable blindness, so quitting is one of the best things you can do for your eye health.
5. Eat a Healthy Diet
Eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables has been linked with better eye health, so make sure to include plenty of them in your meals.
