It’s summer! Keep those eyes protected…

June 25th, 2013 No Comments

With the sunny summer months upon us, it’s time to take a closer look at our own aging eyes, or of those in our NJ elder care circle. The sun’s bright rays can be averted by wearing a hat with a wide brim, along with a pair of UV-blocking sunglasses.

Other ways to protect eyes in the summer and all year long:

  • Wear protective goggles when doing yard work or home improvement projects
  • Use masks or other ways to protect your eyes when playing sports: baseball, golf, handball, tennis, etc.
  • Watch out for chemicals or poison getting in the eyes such as insect repellent, stinging pool chemicals, poison ivy, etc.
  • Be wary of potential hazards that may inadvertently happen: sparks from fireworks, pellet guns, rubber bands or bungee cords snapping off, etc.

Always have your eyes checked on a regular basis by an eye care professional (ophthalmologist or optometrist). If you’re over 65, have them checked yearly. If you experience sudden blurriness, flashes of light, double vision, eye pain, or eyelid swelling, see the professional right away.
