Healthy Vision 101
Eye exams: Undergoing routine eye exams at least once a year is critical, particularly with age. Checkups are a chance for your doctor to detect any underlying or developing eye condition in the earliest and most easily treatable stage.
Eyewear: If you wear prescription glasses, you will want to make sure your prescription is up to date. Your prescription can change over time, often so gradually it is imperceptible until you are forced to squint or strain in order to see.
Contact lenses: If you wear contact lenses, handle them with disinfected hands and make sure to clean them as directed with a specialized solution (tap water contains bacteria). Also, do not sleep with contacts in place; this can cause infection and further impair vision.
Eye conditions: Those diagnosed in Leesburg, Eustis, and Clermont with a specific or serious eye condition should follow their doctor's orders strictly. Carefully adhering to your special treatment plan will most effectively prevent further damage to the eyes.
Eye safety: Eye injuries are a major cause of eye complications. We recommend wearing protective guards during intense activities or sports after work or at any time. You should also consistently wash your hands, read in a well-lit environment, and be careful when handling sharp objects or chemicals.
