Take care of your eyes to get the new year off to a good start! January is National Eye Care Month thus at least once a year, you and your family should visit an eye doctor to get your eyes ckecked. Dr. Jeff Porter and his associates at the Walmart Vision Centers in Crystal Lake, IL, and Harvard, IL are committed to providing quality eye treatment.

Ways to observe during the National Eye Care Month:


Early signs

A lot of changes can happen in one year. However, by getting an eye checkup at least once a year, your eye doctor can detect vision problems while they are still in the early stages of development. It’s always a good idea to take care of eye health problems and get treated early before they get worse. Treating them early will prevent more damage to your eyes and maintain healthy vision.


Protect your future vision

Even if you have perfect eyesight, getting an eye exam once a year will help you keep it that way. Many people lose sight slowly and don’t realize what is happening because they skip visiting an eye doctor. The longer you wait to get an eye exam, the harder it will be for your eye doctor to fix your vision.

Let your eyes rest

Some people might say that seeing is their job, so why not use them to see? But remember that too much of anything can be harmful. This month, try to spend only a little time on your phone or computer. Instead, go to a park and let your eyes relax.

Spread awareness

After your eye exam, continue spreading the word about National Eye Care Month to your friends and family. It is beneficial to raise awareness among your loved ones. You never know when someone with an eye condition can benefit from this knowledge and have their sight saved!

Your eyes are one of the most important parts of your body. Keep this National Eye Care Month going by giving your eyes the attention they need.
