Healthy Vision Month

Taking care of your eyes is vital.

Nearly 12 million individuals in the United States suffer from vision impairment. However, with routine eye care, vision problems and eye diseases can be detected early and sometimes avoided.

At Trusted Lasik Surgeons™, we aim to provide you with the information you need to keep your vision at its best, including extensive discussions about vision correction procedures like LASIK, cataract surgery, and the Kamra Inlay Procedure.

Eye care is essential, which is why the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are shedding light on your eyesight with Healthy Vision Month.

What Is Healthy Vision Month?

Healthy Vision Month is in May and focuses on eye care and blindness prevention. During the whole month of May, the CDC is promoting the importance of eye health.

Estimates with “vision problems” range as high as 21 million people in the United States, and a total of 80 million Americans have potentially blinding eye diseases. Cataracts, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma are among the major causes of vision loss.

Taking care of your eyes comes in many different forms, including corrective eyewear, regular checkups, and LASIK and Cataract Surgery.

Some people view eye care as a concern of those over the age of 65. The reality, however, is that vision problems begin much earlier and can have lasting effects. Vision impairment can force you to orchestrate your life around eye problems.

Scheduling eye exams at least annually is the best way to be proactive with vision health. Some individuals with other health problems or a family history of diabetes may need to see an eye doctor more frequently.

Other ways to maintain healthy vision include eating healthy, wearing sunglasses, and practicing eye safety.

The Effects of Neglect

Neglecting your eyesight can come with dire consequences. Cataracts, or a clouding of the eye, require a cataract surgeon and could lead to blindness if left untreated. Other issues, like glaucoma and macular degeneration, can have serious consequences. Avoiding a refractive error can also lead to worse vision. Measures like corrective eyewear or LASIK surgery can help avoid damage to your eyes and improve your vision.
