April is Women’s Eye Health Month

By: Kady
Did you know that two third of visual impairment and blindness occur in women? April is Women’s Eye Health Month and we’re raising awareness about why it’s important to get regular comprehensive eye exams, especially for women.

Women often make the majority of the family’s healthcare decisions, and may be looking after both children and aging parents simultaneously. Pregnancy can also cause vision changes, including prescription changes, dry eye symptoms, and puffy or irritated eyelids.

See your optometrist regularly.

The best way to prevent or treat common vision problems that primarily affect women is to visit your optometrist for regular, comprehensive eye exams.

Ask your optometrist about dry eyes.

Are you experiencing dry eye symptoms? Don’t just live with it – your optometrist may be able to help and identify any underlying vision problems that could be causing your dry eyes.

Eat for your eye health.

Eating a diet that is rich in vitamin C, vitamin E, beta carotene, lutein, zinc and omega-3 fatty acids can help keep your vision sharp. If you have questions about the best foods to keep your eyes healthy, your optometrist is happy to help.
