Fall Eye Care Tips

Posted October 27, 2016

Fall is a time for changing weather, fall allergies, outdoor activities and much more. Don't neglect your eye health this fall. Remember these helpful tips.

Eye Exams

The vision screenings children may receive in grade school are not as adequate as a comprehensive eye exam. Vision screenings only cover the absolute basics. Schedule a comprehensive eye exam for your children to make sure they stay on track going into the holidays.

Keep those Hands Clean

Stay more germ-free by washing your hands frequently. Avoid touching or rubbing your eyes to which will help prevent the spread of the flu and other eye illnesses like conjunctivitis also known as pink eye. These are common as children get back into their school routine often in close quarters with classmates.

Fall Eye Allergies

Fall can stir up a myriad of eye allergies, most of which are airborne, including pollen, mold, dust, and pet dander. Try your best to minimize exposure to what is causing your eye allergies. You can check out the most up to date allergy map for the U.S. here at http://www.allaboutvision.com/pollen/.

Don't forget your Sunglasses

Even though the days are starting to get a little cooler and shorter, keep those sunglasses on. Even though the temperatures are lower and its cloudy or overcast outside UV rays can still penetrate cloud cover. There isn't very much difference in UV levels during overcast days versus clear days.

Eye Safety First!

Save yourself a trip to the Emergency Room this Halloween. Wear the proper eye protection while you and your children are carving pumpkins and working on other halloween and fall decorations. Remember to wear eye protection while cleaning, cooking, doing yard work, or working in the garage. About 50% of all eye injuries occur when doing these common chores around the house. According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology about 90% of all eye injuries could have been prevented by simply wearing some form of eye protection. Costumes accessories can harm eyes. Beware of makeups and facepaints that can get into your eyes. Use hpo-allergenic products when possible.
