Do you play sports? Certain contact sports, like lacrosse and ice hockey, can be dangerous for your eyes. Make sure you wear either sports goggles or a face mask to limit your risk. While it may seem strange to wear them at first, you will quickly get used to them. You should have eye exams regularly to maintain great eye health. As you age your eyes should get looked at more often. As you age, you have a higher chance of developing eye problems such as glaucoma or cataracts. Keeping a close eye on them will help your eye doctor spot any potential problems at onset.
