This post was sponsored by Think About Your Eyes as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received compensation as a thank you for my review.
At a group dinner the other night, I was chatting with an Optician about the need for getting fitted for glasses in person. I have ordered glasses online several times with varying degrees of success. The thing about eyes that we forget is that they are an important muscle in our body that needs to be regularly cared for in order to ensure maximum performance. Because I have eye issues, I get yearly exams of my eyes, but someone like my husband does not go the eye doctor at all. He does not need glasses, therefore he chooses not to go. We even have eye insurance and he doesn’t use it!! Don’t worry…I will get him there soon!
I wanted to let you know about this new national public awareness campaign called ‘Think About Your Eyes’. The goal of the campaign is to help promote the benefits of eye health and urge people to take care of themselves and get annual comprehensive eye exam! Recently Think About Your Eyes surveyed members of national fitness center chain Life Time Fitness, and found that some gym-goers neglect their eye health despite being very conscious of their body health and fitness.
Did you know that your can take care of your eyes with healthy diet? Here are some of the foods linked to healthy eyes: Nuts, Oranges, Spinach, Salmon, Red Meat, and Carrots. It is best to add these to your healthy diet. You can help keep your eyes healthier by eating foods that are rich in certain vitamins and nutrient like: Vitamin A, C, D, E, beta-carotene, and Omega-3 fatty acids. You can also take a daily multivitamin and mineral supplement can also help fill in the nutritional gaps.
By getting an annual comprehensive eye exam, eye problems can be detected at their early stages when they’re most treatable!! Visit the Think About Your Eyes eye care professional locator to find an eye doctor near you and schedule an exam.
