When making health-related New Year’s resolutions, most people tend to focus on two things—losing weight and exercising more. While those things are important, Dr. Sandy T. Feldman suggests adding healthful habits for better vision as a top priority in 2015.
“Considering how much time each day people spend in front of various screens—computers, TVs, e-readers, tablets, smart phones—it’s clear that we rely on our vision far more than we know,” said. Dr. Feldman.
Dr. Feldman offers some New Year’s tips to improve vision and prevent vision problems, including:
- Eat more nutrient-rich foods
- Exercise more
- Be cautious with vitamins
- Be mindful of your screen time
- Use natural remedies to soothe dry eyes
- Wear protective eyewear
- Practice good eye hygiene
- Use full-spectrum lighting at the office
