An eye exam may be the last thing on your mind in the rush to get your children ready to go back to school.
But in reality, no amount of new clothes, binders, backpacks or pencils will help your child succeed in school if they have an undetected problem with their vision.
Why Back-To-School Eye Exams Matter
Did you know that one out of four children has vision problems? And yet only 50 percent of parents with children under the age of 12 have taken their children to an eye care professional.
Many children struggle needlessly with vision problems simply because they don’t know they have one. For a child in school, vision correction can make all the difference in their academic performance as well as their ability to play sports and interact with others. Eye exams ensure that children are seeing and feeling their best.
The holidays are a time when we all look forward to relaxing, attending parties, and spending time with the people we love. It should be a time of joy and celebration so don’t let a preventable eye injury ruin your time with your family and friends. Parents should be especially alert for potential holiday eye hazards to children. Following a few helpful tips may help keep your holiday cheerful and your family safe.
Do not use ornaments that are breakable, have small detachable parts, or metal hooks near the bottom of the tree where kids can reach them.
If you have small children keep the lower branches of the tree trimmed so children don’t accidentally poke their eyes on the branches.
Spray snow is very dangerous for the eyes. The substance is made up of dangerous chemicals, so avoid spraying it near the eyes.
Skiing, snowboarding, sledding, snowmobiling, and even snowball fights can cause accidental trauma to the eyes. Everyone should wear goggles to protect their eyes while engaging in activities.
Be careful of open flames, specifically fireplaces, which can cause burns to both children and adults.
Finally, the holidays can mean a lot of driving. Spotty and blurry vision can be a concern on long journeys. The best way to avoid this and be as safe as possible is to make plans ahead of time. Be sure to get enough sleep or stay close to your celebration. If this is not an option, here are some tips avoiding fatigue and improving alertness.
Artificial tears can help soothe and refresh tired eyes. They may also help contribute to clear vision.
Take your time and plan for rest breaks every couple of hours. Get out of your vehicle and take a short walk or do some exercise to get your blood pumping.
If possible, share the driving.
Don’t drink and drive!
Use air conditioning if your vehicle has it. Cool air will keep you more alert and will help avoid frustration and stress caused by fatigue.
Whatever you do this holiday season make it joyous and relaxing but don’t let the celebration get in the way of your safety.

Have regular physical exams to check for diabetes and high blood pressure. If left untreated, these diseases can cause eye problems. In particular, diabetes and high blood pressure can lead to vision loss from diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and eye strokes.
Due to the presence of Vitamin A, guava is well known as a booster for vision health. It can not only prevent degradation of eyesight, but even improve eyesight. It can help slow down the appearance of cataracts and macular degeneration. Even though guavas are not as rich in Vitamin A as carrots, they are still a very good source of the nutrient.
