    It is almost back to school time and you are prepared with your child's enrollment forms, orientation schedules and check ups-but what about their eye exams?

    TIPS FOR HEALTHY EYES

    SAFETY FIRST-If you think you need to be wearing safety glasses, put them on!

    UV PROTECTION-Sunglasses are not just a fashion statement.  Sun damage is serious to the eyes. Always wear sunglasses with 100% UV protection.

    HEADACHES- Don't ignore them!  Frequent headaches can be a sign of an ocular issue.  Call your eye doctor to schedule an appointment.

    REST YOUR EYES-Try the 20-20-20 rule: Every 20 minutes, look about 20 feet away for 20 seconds.  This rule is helpful when using a computer or reading for long periods.

    EAT YOUR CARROTS-It's true that a diet rich in Vitamin A keeps your eyes healthy.  Eat lots of carrots and dark leafy greens.
