Cataract Awareness: Save Your Sight

As we age, cataracts are caused when the natural lenses of our eyes become cloudy. It is a painless process; however, overtime cataracts can cause our eyesight to become increasingly worse. June is Cataract Awareness month and South Georgia | North Florida Eye Partners is highlighting ways you can prevent the development of cataracts. Check out these tips:

  1. Protect your eyes from UV light by wearing sunglasses or a hat when outdoors.
  2. If you are a smoker, consider taking the necessary steps to quit.
  3. Eat green, leafy vegetables, fruit, and other foods high in antioxidants.
  4. Have a comprehensive eye exam every year!
