The Center for Disease Control suggests eight ways you can help protect your vision:

  1. Know your family’s eye health history. It’s important to know if anyone has been diagnosed with an eye disease or condition, since some are hereditary.
  2. Eat right to protect your sight: In particular, eat plenty of dark leafy greens such as spinach, kale, or collard greens, and fish that is high in omega-3 fatty acids such as salmon, albacore tuna, trout, and halibut.
  3. Maintain a healthy weight.
  4. Wear protective eyewear when playing sports or doing activities around the home, such as painting, yard work, and home repairs.
  5. Quit smoking or never start.
  6. Wear sunglasses that block 99 percent-100 percent of ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation.
  7. Wash your hands before taking out your contacts and cleanse your contact lenses properly to avoid infection.
  8. Practice workplace eye safety.
