Eye see you! Are you taking care of your eyes?

Wear Protective Eye Wear

Protective eye wear includes safety glasses, goggles, and face shields. Gauge the risk level of your activities and be sure to wear the proper form of eye wear.

Make Use of Light

When reading, studying, or working, make sure that there is a light on your task as well as a soft background light to prevent strain.

Take Breaks

For close work or visually demanding tasks, blink often and close or rest your eyes when they feel dry.

Avoid Glare

Place your TV and computer in locations where light will not reflect on the screen.

Visit the Eye Doctor Regularly

Routine eye exams can help ensure that your eyes are functioning as they should.
