The Laser Center of Coral Gables is a leading laser eye surgery center in Miami Florida that provides comprehensive eye services and LASIK to those looking to improve their vision. The goal of our eye doctor team is to help our patients to maintain optimal long-term eye health. Great eye sight isn’t just about going to the eye doctor annually for a new prescription. How you treat your eyes will greatly affect your eye health. Also, how you protect your eyes from the sun will help you to maintain better long-term eye health too.
UV rays are harmful to the eyes and can cause sunburn to the eyes, a condition known as photokeratitis. This can cause pain when you blink. Your risk for developing glaucoma, cataracts, and also macular degeneration is increased the more you have been exposed to UV rays during your life. High-quality polarized sunglasses block harmful UV rays well. They also reduce eyestrain and headaches too.
A healthy diet that is full of foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids as well as green leafy vegetables can be beneficial too. These foods reduce inflammation in blood vessels in the eyes and help you see much better over time.
Regular Eye Exams
Most serious eye problems can be detected quickly if someone sees an eye doctor regularly. The best way to avoid damage is to avoid developing conditions in the first place. Preventive eye care is important. For those over 40, an eye exam should be had each year. This is done to prevent age-related conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration. Early detection helps reduce your chance of developing complications that could have been prevented. However, if you do develop something, we have partners with the best eye doctors in our area and can refer you to one who can treat it effectively and quickly to reduce the risk of it worsening or leading to something much more serious for your eye health.
