Protect Your Sight Throughout Your Day

There may be more to guarding your vision in the summer than meets the eye. Protect your eyesight:

  1. At Work – Follow the 20-20-20 rule at your computer. Every 20 minutes, look at something at least 20 feet away f0r 20 seconds.
  2. Outside – Wear protective polycarbonate goggles when you’re doing repairs that pose a risk of flying objects. Otherwise, shield eyes with sunglasses.
  3. At the Table – Eat an eye-healthy diet rich in citrus, nuts, whole grains, dark leafy vegetables, and fish.
  4. At the Doctor – Visit your optometrist! Get regular dilated eyed exams to detect problems before they start.
