Whoever said that eyecare isn’t a form of self care is wrong! The fact of the matter is, eyecare is extremely important and should be a priority. Here are some ways we can reinvent the idea that eyecare is in fact self care. Our eyes carry us through so much and allow us to see new things! So, why don’t we treat them better?
Visit Your Eye Doctor
For starters, go see your eye doctor! Stop putting off your visit—we heard they miss you! You should schedule a comprehensive eye exam appointment every one or two years. This will allow you to have an accurate, updated prescription.
Additionally, you should always be wearing sunglasses. Be sure to wear sunglasses with 100% UVA and UVB ray protection. It is important to protect your eyes from the harmful rays. And, sunglasses are the perfect accessory, so why not?!
Don’t Strain Your Eyes
Everything is good in moderation. This statement also applies when talking about your eyes. Eye strain can occur in many different ways: phones, computers, televisions, driving long distances, reading without taking breaks to rest your eyes, etc…. When this happens, try applying the 20-20-20 rule. What is this rule you ask? This simply means every 20 minutes spent looking at a screen (or partaking in any activity that can cause eye strain), you should try to look away at something that is 20 feet away from you for a total of 20 seconds. This break allows the eye to rest and relax a bit.
Prioritize Your Eyecare
Maybe it’s your children, spouse, or even the whole family that are in need of eyecare. While this may be the case, this doesn’t diminish your need for updated eyecare and eyewear that you enjoy and love. It's important to treat yourself as well–you deserve it!
The days of hating your glasses are over. Selfcare doesn’t just come in the form of bubble baths and massages. It also presents itself in maintaining a healthy lifestyle and partaking in hobbies that increase confidence and allow you to express yourself honestly and freely.
Eye-care is important.
Eye-care can be fun.
