Vision care, tips and important facts.
Our eyesight and ability to see is one of our most important senses, more than 75% of the information comes through our sense of sight. By protecting our eyes, we can reduce the odds of blindness, vision loss and staying on top of any eye diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma and many others. By keeping our eyes healthy, we keep our brain healthy and improving our quality of life!
For many centuries, people have promoted eye exercises as a natural cure for eyesight. There's very little credible scientific evidence suggesting that eye exercises can improve our vision. We can't correct our vision without professionals, and there's no quick and easy fix for eyesight problems. Refractive errors will progress regardless of whether we wear glasses or not, but wearing glasses means we can see better.
After 40 our eyes usually don't have enough focusing power to see clearly, reading or other close vision tasks. Losing the focusing ability for near vision called presbyopia and occurs because the lenses inside our eyes become less flexible.
Visual acuity of 20/20 is considered “perfect vision” because no aids are required.
Eyecare does not finish with the correction of refractive errors. Maintaining the health of our eyesight is a permanent investment.
