If your vision is worsening, you need to be sure you make an appointment with your optometrist to see what could be the problem. Sometimes, vision worsens with age, other times, it can be due to a medical condition, but there are times that your vision is worsening because of the things you are doing daily. No matter what, you should be sure to see your eye doctor for an exam. To help keep your vision from worsening, there are a few things you can try. Read on for a few tips.
1. Stop Squinting
Squinting is going to cause a strain on your eyes and your vision, not to mention the extra wrinkles. You may be squinting to see your computer in front of your face, or squinting to see the television, or you may be squinting to see in the sunlight. No matter what, you need to stop squinting. If you're squinting to see, that eye strain is going to take a toll on your vision. If you're squinting to see your tech equipment, you need to make an adjustment to your seat or to your screen. If you're squinting because of the sunlight, you need to be sure you are wearing sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sun and also protect yourself from squinting as well.
2. Wear Your Eyeglasses As Needed
Those eyeglasses that were prescribed to you aren't just for fashion. They are to be worn as needed so you can see. Be sure you are wearing them so you can see properly. If you aren't wearing them as often as you should, you could be setting yourself up for vision failure. The same goes with your contact lenses. Make sure you are wearing them appropriately and wearing them as directed. If you aren't changing them as often as you should, your vision could worsen.
3. Eat Healthy And Drink Plenty Of Water
Eating a healthy diet can help your entire body and it can also help with your eyes and your vision as well. A healthy diet should include fresh fruits and vegetables, including leafy green vegetables and colorful vegetables such as carrots, beets and squash. Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated, as dehydration can cause issues with all of your organs, including your eyes.
If your vision is getting worse, you need to make an appointment to have your eyes checked and your vision tested. Try making these adjustments in your day to day life to prevent it worsening any further, and talk to your optometrist about other things you can do.
