This break will help your eyes focus and will prevent against eye strain.
Manage Your Diabetes
If you have diabetes, you are more susceptible to eye issues like diabetic retinopathy. As such, it’s not only important for you to manage your blood insulin levels, but it’s also important for you to get regular eye examinations form Eye and Lasik Center. During your regular eye exams, your doctor will be able to determine if there are any diabetic related vision problems and how to manage them if there are.
Get Regular Eye Exams
Getting regular eyes exams (every one to three years on average) is one of the easiest ways for you to take better care of your vision. During your eye exam, you will not only be tested to see if you need glasses, but you will be checked for serious eye problems like cataracts and glaucoma. With both of these eye diseases, the earlier they are detected, the easier they are to treat.
