Did You Know?

Did you know that you could be going blind and not even know it? That's what glaucoma does. It sneaks up on you very slowly over time. It's a leading cause of blindness in all adults over 60. But some people are especially at risk. If you're Black and over 40, you're up to five times more likely to get glaucoma. Or if you have a family history of glaucoma, you're also at high risk. Glaucoma can't be cured, but it can be controlled and the risk of blindness reduced-if glaucoma is detected and treated in time. That's why it's so important for people with an increased risk to have regular eye exams. Seattle glaucoma specialist, Howard Barnebey, MD is one of a very small group of local eye doctors dedicated to glaucoma and helping patients with this terrible eye disease.

5 Tips to Keep Your Eyes Healthy

Like the rest of our bodies, our eyes are affected by our health, so it is important that we keep our health in our consideration if we want to maintain good vision. Here are a few easy ways you can help to maintain the health of your eyes as you get older.

Eat right: Eating a nutrition rich diet full of vegetables and fruits is an important piece of the good eye health puzzle. Kale and Spinach are great examples of leafy greens that are essential in your diet for proper eye nutrition. Some studies have also shown that eating fatty fish with high levels of omega-3 fatty acids such as, salmon and halibut can have eye health benefits.

Use protective eyewear: Before going out on the football field, make sure you are taking the necessary precautions to protect your vision with the application of protective eyewear. Protective eyewear is important for more than just football players however, so make sure that you get your protective eyewear on before doing anything very active outdoors.

Wear sunglasses: When you go outdoors, make sure you equip those cool shades. Besides being a fantastic fashion accessory, sunglasses also play an important role in protecting your eyes from the sun's ultraviolet rays.. Make sure your sunglasses block out 99% - 100% of UV-A and UV-B rays.

Control your weight: This goes hand-in-hand with eating right. Becoming obese can dramatically increase your risks of developing diabetes and other health problems, that can cause vision loss. Those who are obese can develop diabetic retinopathy or possibly glaucoma. If you are having difficulty controlling your weight then it is probably for the best for you to contact your physician.

Handle contact lenses properly: If you are a contact lens user, then it is important that you are cleaning your lenses regularly and not overusing them. It is easy to cut corners with simple daily routines, but cutting corners with your contact lens hygiene can prove dangerous for your eyes health. Serious eye infections and complications can occur by exposing your eyes to bacteria trapped onto the contact lens.
