Do you think that vision loss is a normal part of aging?  IT. IS. NOT.

So~~ what things can we do to preserve our vision?  Many eye problems begin w/o any symptoms.  Keeping your eyes healthy is easy.

  1. Minimize eye strain by balancing time on digital devices with time outdoors.  This is especially important for children.  Practice the 20-20-20 rule and make a concentrated effort to BLINK often when using digital devices.
