How to Keep Your Eyes Healthy

Our eyes are one of the most important organs in the human body. They allow us to be adaptable to the visual world and appreciate its spectacular sights. Our eyes help us to avoid danger. Though not always fatal, eye problems can lead to blindness. Fortunately, there are easy steps we can do to avoid eye problems. Read on.

Visit your optometrist twice a year

The first thing you must do to ensure your eye health is to visit your optometrist at least twice a year. There are three kinds of eye professionals: optometrists, ophthalmologists and opticians. When you need an eye checkup, you visit an optometrist. They are doctors trained to detect signs of disease and eye conditions such as glaucoma. On the other hand, if you need a medical and surgical operation for your eyes, you should visit an ophthalmologist in such cases with eye problems caused by accidents. An optician is a person trained to help people choose correct lenses and frames and adjust them to fit to your vision. Tell your eye doctor about any differences you have noticed in your vision since your last visit. By doing regular visits, different eye diseases such as glaucoma, myopia and cataracts can be detected early and proper treatment will be recommended. In cases where you experience eyestrain after an accident, go to the eye doctor immediately. Call Us for an Appointment Now at (215) 545-3937 (EYES).
