To maintain good eye health in your 20s and 30s, it’s important to get enough rest, eat foods rich in antioxidants, be careful when applying cosmetics and hair spray, and wash your hands often to help keep your eyes free of germs and bacteria that cause infections.

Protective eyewear is important, too. Indianapolis eye doctors recommend wearing sunglasses to protect against harmful UV rays that over time increase the chance of developing cataracts.

A family history of eye disease, diabetes, high blood pressure or poor vision increases your risk for eye problems. In your 20s and 30s, your vision is more prone to Computer Vision Syndrome or irritation from pollution.  It’s important to alert your eye doctor of any changes in vision or injury to your eyes.

Your vision will change as you age. While you may not need reading glasses or bifocal lenses in your 20s and 30s, it’s still important to get regular checkups from your Indiana eye doctor. Not only can Dr. Tavel and his board certified associates identify over 40 systemic diseases, but they can help you find the method of vision correction that best suits your lifestyle.

Taking care of your eyes in your 20s and 30s will lead to many more years of healthy vision!
