Comprehensive Eye Care

OC Surgical offers comprehensive eye care in order to ensure the health and beauty of your eyes. They say the eyes are the window to your soul, so we want to make sure your eyes are of highest quality!
Here are some tips you should consider in order to maintain the health and beauty of your eyes:
  • Don’t smoke and quit if you currently do smoke. Just as we know smoking is bad for the health of your body as a whole, it is especially bad for the health of your eyes and can cause all sorts of damage that could eventually lead to blindness.
  • Use best practices for eye safety while at work. While you are at work make sure to wear protective eye gear if you work in a hazardous environment. If you are on the computer for long periods of time make sure to take short breaks and rest your eyes.
  • Wear eyewear that protects you. There are different types of protective eyewear that can be used for various activities such as glasses, goggles, safety shields and eye guards.
  • Wear sunglasses when outside. When you buy sunglasses make sure to check that they block out 99-100% of UV-A and UV-B radiation. Wearing protective sunglasses is an important step to take in order to protect your eyes from the sun’s harsh UV rays.
  • Rest your eyes. When you spend a long amount of time focusing on one item such as reading, working on a computer or staring at a mobile device, you can cause distress and straining of your eyes. Staring at an object for so long decreases the amount of times you blink and blinking is necessary for the health of your eyes. Blinking helps to lubricate your eyes and flush out foreign matter and possible infections.
  • Know the history of your family’s eye health. By knowing your family’s health history you can take specific cautionary measures to reduce your risk of certain conditions that can cause major damage if not permanent impairment, such as vision loss due to diabetes.
  • Take the time to have a comprehensive dilated eye exam. A comprehensive dilated eye exam is the only effective way of detecting many eye diseases in their early stages such as diabetic eye disease, glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration.
  • Eat the right food to protect your eyes health. Eating more of certain foods and less of others is a major way to improve the health of your eyes and reduce the risk of certain eye health conditions and illnesses. Eating more fruits and vegetables, specifically vegetables that are dark green and leafy, are beneficial to your eyes. In addition, omega-3 fatty acids can be found in fish such as salmon, tuna and halibut and are useful for maintaining the health of your eyes.
  • Maintain a healthy weight. It is important to maintain a healthy weight in order to prevent many illnesses, but especially diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is often caused by an unhealthy weight and leads to many more serious health issues.
  • Always make sure to properly clean your hands and your contacts. Washing your hands and disinfecting your contact lenses is very important in order to prevent yourself from possible infections and diseases spread by germs that may come in contact with your eyes.
