Open Your Eyes

We have only been blessed with one set of eyes and we must take care of them. I shared before at Annies Home about many eye dangers. Cataracts, sun damage to eyes, sport injury , allergies , and other injuries. Be careful out there so that you do not damage your eyes 

You should find out if you are at high risk for eye diseases. Family history of diabetes or high blood pressure increase your risk at losing sight. If you are age 65 or an African American over age of 40 will increase risk as well. Regular eye exams are important to limit vision loss and help preserve eye sight.

Regular physical exams to check diabetes and high blood pressure is important as well. Leaving disease untreated can cause eye problems. 
Vision loss from diabetes can lead to retinopathy, macular degeneration and eye strokes.

There are warning signs that your vision is changing. Start paying attention and taking note of these changes. Double vision, hazy vision and difficulty seeing are all signs and a dr. appointment should be made. Red eyes, flashes of light, floaters, and eye pain and swelling require immediate attention.

Have an eye exam at least every 2 years. Dilating pupils can determine risk for major eye diseases.
