Bright eyes

Taking care of your health and your eyes is the first step in preventing blindness from common eye problems…

Low and degenerative loss of vision is on the rise. It is estimated common eye problems that are leading causes of blindness will double by the year 2030. Lifestyle choices such as smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, lack of exercise, poor food choices, obesity, as well as age related eye diseases can all factor into poorer health and subsequently poorer vision.

  • Signs of possible eye trouble may include:
  • Difficulty focusing on objects near of far
  • Line and edges appear distorted or blurred
  • Dark spots in the centre of viewing
  • Red rimmed, encrusted or swollen eyes
  • Hazy or blurred vision

If you notice any signs of potential problems, see an eye doctor for an eye exam. Regular eye exams are especially recommended for those with high blood pressure and diabetes.
