Taking care of your eye health can be as easy as 1,2,3. Follow these three simple steps to keep eyes healthy and vision clear.

Throw away old makeup

We love to hold onto our eye pencils, mascara, and eye shadow as long as we possibly can. Unfortunately, that puts us at high risk for an eye infection. Pitch makeup that has been in your makeup bag for longer than three months to ensure healthy eyes.

Get a regular eye examhealthy eyes

An annual eye exam should be a part of your yearly health routine. An eye exam can detect eye diseases as well as other health problems. Hypertension, diabetes, and cholesterol  are just a few of the medical problems an eye exam can detect.

Take a break from computer screens

Lastly, taking a break from computer screens can help avoid dry and tired eyes. Looking at a screen doesn’t necessarily hurt your eyes, but can create discomfort. To avoid symptoms, take a  break from your computer screen every 20 minutes.

If it is time for your annual eye exam, visit the nearest Dr. Tavel location to you. With 19 convenient locations in Indiana, we are always ready to take care of your eyes.
