The New Year has finally arrived! The festivities were a lot of fun, but now it’s time to turn to your resolutions. A lot of those resolutions focus around health, but one aspect is often overlooked: eye health.
In fact, according to a survey by the Canadian Ophthalmological Society¹, 76% of respondents are concerned about their eye care, which is great. Here is the problem: many are unfamiliar with an array of factors related to the health of their eyes, like their environment and lifestyle.
Thankfully, there are many ways to improve eye health. “Incorporating simple habits in your routine to maintain your eye health can be easy to do. From adopting healthy lifestyle choices to simply wearing sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sun’s effects. Your eyes need your attention,” said Claudia Rojas, Director of Operations - Western Canada and Refracting Optician at New Look Eyewear.
