May is Healthy Vision Month, a timely reminder to take good care of our eyes. Our eyes are incredibly important, and just like we strive to keep our bodies healthy through regular exercise and a balanced diet, we must also give our eyes the attention and care they deserve. By prioritising our eye health, we can enjoy clear vision and delay or even prevent potential eye problems in the long run. Here are some easy tips to keep your vision sharp and your eyes healthy for years to come:

Schedule regular eye exams

This is the golden rule! Don't wait until you experience vision problems to visit an optician. Comprehensive dilated eye exams can detect eye diseases like glaucoma and macular degeneration in their early stages when treatment is most effective. Not sure if you need one? Read our detailed guide ‘Do I need an eye test?’ to find out.

Eat a balanced diet

Nourish your body and your eyes with a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. These foods are packed with antioxidants like lutein and zeaxanthin, which can help protect your eyes from age-related macular degeneration, a leading cause of vision loss. Don't forget omega-3 fatty acids, found in fatty fish like salmon, which can contribute to eye health. Read our blog on the top 10 foods to improve your eyesight and try to include them in your diet.

Handle your contact lenses with care

It is important to clean and store your lenses properly to maintain healthy eyes. Make sure to thoroughly wash and dry your hands before handling your lenses. For reusable lenses, always clean and disinfect them using contact lens solutions and store them as recommended by your optician. If you do not wish to have the hassle of cleaning and storing contact lenses, you can consider switching to daily disposable lenses. These single-use lenses offer the ultimate convenience and hygiene – simply discard them after each use, eliminating the need for cleaning solutions and storage cases altogether.

At Feel Good Contacts, you can get contact lenses for up to 50% less, compared to when purchasing from high street opticians.

Protect your eyes from the sun

Just like your skin, your eyes need protection from the sun's harmful UV rays. It is highly recommended that you wear sunglasses that are specifically designed to block both UVA and UVB rays. This will help to prevent long-term damage and reduce the risk of developing various eye-related issues. Additionally, it's a good idea to wear a wide-brimmed hat when the sun is at its peak, as this can provide added protection to your face and eyes.

You can shop from a wide range of sunglasses that are both protective and stylish, and with up to 60% off at Feel Good Contacts.

Limit screen time

Let's face it, we spend a lot of time glued to screens these days. The constant blue light emission from digital devices can contribute to eye strain and fatigue.

Give your eyes a break by following the 20-20-20 rule: Every 20 minutes, look away from your screen for 20 seconds at something 20 feet away. This allows your eyes to refocus and relax.

At Feel Good Contacts, you can shop for branded glasses for up to 70% off, with the option to add blue light lens coating to your lenses which can help filter out blue light emitted by screens.

Maintain a healthy lifestyle

Smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can increase your risk of developing eye diseases. Aim for a healthy weight and properly manage chronic conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure, which can also impact your eye health.

Pamper your eyes with eye essentials

It's important to take care of your eyes and give them the care they deserve. Consider incorporating some effective eye care essentials into your routine. This could be hydrating eye drops, comforting eye masks, and/or warm compresses. By using high-quality eye essentials, you can ensure that your eyes receive the pampering they need to stay healthy and well-maintained.

By following these simple tips, you can take charge of your eye health and help delay the onset of certain eye conditions.
