We all know about the resolutions to improve how we look and feel in the New Year, but what about how we SEE? Your eyes are an important part of your health that is often overlooked. We’ve compiled a list of eye care tips to keep you seeing your best in 2016!
1. Schedule an eye exam for you and your family.

2. Stay hydrated.
Staying hydrated helps with tear production and improves eye nutrition.
3. Eat your veggies (especially the green ones).
Eating lots of leafy greens can help reduce the risk f eye related diseases and complications.
4. Give your eyes a break.
Looking at screens too much, without giving your eyes a rest can have a negative impact on your eye health. For a good rule of thumb, follow the 20-20-20 eye rule: for every 20 minutes you look at a screen you should look away for 20 seconds at something approximately 20 feet away.
5. Stay active.
As if this wasn’t on everyone’s New Year’s resolution list, here’s another reason to stay active: staying active can help to prevent or delay the onset of age-related vision loss later in life!
6. Keep Calm and Wear Your Shades
Wearing sunglasses even when it’s cloudy can help protect your eyes from vision damaging UV rays. Choose sunglasses that protect against both UV-A and UV-B radiation.
Follow these tips in 2016 and your eyes will thank you!
