The National Eye Institute provides great tips on how to protect your eye health: 1. Have a Comprehensive Dilated Eye ExamMany common eye diseases often won't show any warning signs. This may lead you to thinking your vision is fine, but visiting your eye care professional for a comprehensive dilated eye exam is really the only way to be sure. 2. Know Your Family's Eye Health HistoryMany diseases are hereditary so it's important to talk to your family members about the history of their eye health. 3. Eat Right to Protect Your SightHealthy eyes need a rich diet of fruits, leafy greens and omega-3 fatty acids. Be sure to check out our many recipes that we feature on our blog!

Maintain a Healthy WeightA healthy weight will decrease your risk of developing diabetes or other conditions that lead to vision loss. 5. Wear Protective EyewearWhen playing sports or doing activities around the home, wear safety glasses, goggles, shields or eye guards for protection. 6. Avoid SmokingSmoking increases your risk of developing age-related macular degeneration, cataract and other optic nerve damage. Don't do it! 7.
