The optometrists in Maple Ridge including Dr. M. Hurlbert, Dr. Angela Lee, Dr. Gary A. Matter and Dr. Priya Rughani want you to know that May is Vision Health Month. Your eyes are your windows to the world and May is the time to learn more about keeping them healthy and safe. At Maple Ridge Eye Care, our Maple Ridge eye doctors have been serving Pitt Meadows and the surrounding communities for over 60 years with superior eye care and education is a large component of that care.
Simple Ways You Can Celebrate Vision Health Month in Maple Ridge
Far too often people take their vision for granted and do not know that approximately 75% of vision loss is either preventable or treatable. During May in particular, we want to bring more attention to the value of your eyesight and recommend some simple steps you can take to better protect and take care of your eyes.
- Know your family's health history. Knowing the history of your family's health can be critical in eye health. Diabetes, for example, is a significant cause of vision problems. Be sure to make our Maple Ridge eye doctors aware if there is a history of diabetes in your family.
- Wear Protective Eyewear. On the job, at home or at play, when involved in activities that could put your vision at risk, be sure to wear goggles or other protective eyewear.
- Wear Sunglasses. With summer just around the corner, now is a great time to get prescription sunglasses to protect your eyes. See us at Maple Ridge Eye Care for a wide selection of stylish sunglasses.
- Schedule the family for an eye exam. Early detection of vision problems is the best way to prevent them from getting worse. Getting your eyes checked on a regular basis is an important component of maintaining health vision for years to come. May is an excellent time to schedule your annual exam at Maple Ridge Eye Care. We now even offer online booking!
