September is Save Your Eyesight Month!
Have you heard the common eye health myth that says using computers or reading in dim light can cause damage to your eyes? The truth is none of these actions actually harm your eyes. We also know that carrots are a key to good vision, but did you know that carrots are not the only eye healthy food? In honor of September’s Save Your Sight month EyeCare America, a national non-profit organization that provides eye exams at no out-of-pocket cost to eligible patients, is exposing common eye care myths while stressing the importance of regular eye exams.
Another frequent misconception about eye care is that eye exams are only needed if you notice a change in your vision. In fact there are a variety of vision conditions and diseases that lack clear warning signs. In many instances, damage caused by eye disease cannot be reversed is why it is important to get regular eye exams.
