5 Tips For Healthy Eyes This Holiday Season

Can you believe that the holiday season is already upon us? It’s a time of joy and cheer. For many, it’s also a great time for making lasting memories.

But it can sometimes be difficult to get into the holiday spirit when you’re overwhelmed and busy! There are plenty of office parties, family dinners, and winter activities.

Don’t let this time pass you by in a blur, or at least don’t let it be blurry because you can’t see what’s going on around you. Make sure to keep your eyes healthy by scheduling an end of the year eye exam.

Have flex spending? It won’t roll over into next year so you may want to think about using any you have left on a new pair of glasses or LASIK!

This is a magical time of year. Make sure you’re able to see it all. Keep reading for five tips for healthy eyes this holiday season!

1. End of the Year Eye Exam

Seeing your eye doctor for regularly scheduled eye exams is a vital component to keeping your eyes healthy. Most people only need to go once a year, but some people forget to go at all!

A year-end eye exam can diagnose any potential eye diseases. It’s also the ideal time to update any prescriptions for glasses and contact lenses.

Keeping your prescription up to date ensures you won’t miss a single detail during the busy holiday season. It’s also a good idea to make sure your prescription is updated as you head into the near year.

2. Eat a Healthy Diet

Food brings everyone together during the holiday season. Make sure you are eating healthy as you enjoy your holiday feast.

A diet that’s rich in vitamins A, C, and E, along with omega 3 fatty acids is best for healthy eyes. Make sure you find some space on your holiday plate for fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts, and fish. Of course, since it’s the holiday season, enjoy a slice of pumpkin pie too!

3. Enjoy a Brisk Walk

Exercise plays an important role when it comes to keeping your eyes healthy. Get out and enjoy the cooler weather with a brisk walk.

It keeps your eyes healthy and helps you burn off any extra holiday season calories.

4. Buy a New Pair of Glasses

A new pair of glasses is a perfect gift to yourself during the holiday season. You can take advantage of holiday sales that discount more expensive designer frames.

A new pair of glasses can complete your holiday look, and make sure you don’t miss any memory-making moments. An end of the year eye exam that requires a new prescription means you’ll need new glasses.

Why not use your flex dollars to buy a new pair you’ll love for years to come?

5. Get LASIK

If you’re tired of glasses and contacts, why not get LASIK? Imagine how great it would be to enjoy your holiday season without visual aids holding you back.

There’s no better investment in yourself or your eyes than LASIK. It’s an excellent way to spend any flexible spending dollars you have left.

It’s also a holiday investment that pays off through the year, and for all the years to come. Consider yourself a great skier?

After LASIK, you’ll be able to ski with ease. No more glasses to worry about flying off your face or contacts that dry out when you’re zooming down the slopes!

Instead, you’ll have clear vision from the top to the bottom of the mountain.
