Rockin the sunnies

Who knew! There is an entire day, Oct. 10, dedicated to keeping our eyes healthy. I was approached about a World Sight Day briefing that was taking place this week and decided to join in on the conversation, as I am admittedly not the best about regular eye exams.

I doubted at first, that I would get much out of the briefing. What could I possibly learn outside of the fact that you should protect your eyes with shades, which as you can see we have no problem with, and regularly visit the eye doctor?

I am so glad I took the time to listen in.  I got some simple tips for me and my computer and sun loving brood.

*To prevent digital eye strain, look away from your computer for 20 seconds every 20 minutes. The 20/20 rule!

*Keep your distance from the screen – 20 – 24 inches.

*Always look for the sticker on sunglasses UVA/UVB protection. Did you know your eyes can get sunburned?

*UV radiation is present year-round.

*Dark leafy greens and foods containing Omega 3 can preserve eye health.

So break out those sunnies, set up your computer and make a salmon salad! For more information on eye health, go to the Vision Council’s website.
