Women's Eye Health & Safety Tips

Woman's Eye Health

Each year, more women than men are diagnosed with eye health problems such as cataracts, dry eye, and glaucoma. Although it is important for men and women to protect their eyes, women appear to be more susceptible to eye health issues and damage due to increased longevity and hormonal fluctuations. To increase awareness about women’s eye health issues, Prevent Blindness America has designated the month of April as Women’s Eye Health & Safety Month. Improve your awareness of women’s vision issues and learn how to protect your eyes by reading through the tips below.

  • Visit your eye doctor regularly
    As we age, it becomes increasingly important to receive regular eye exams. Not only can you get much-needed adjustments for your contacts or eyeglasses, but your physician can also detect serious abnormalities in your vision before you may have any symptoms.
     
  • Become aware of your family history
    If you have a family history of eye problems or visual disturbances, be sure to let your eye doctor know.
     
  • Eat a nutritious, balanced diet
    Eating a varied diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients will help to ensure that your eyes are getting what they need to function at their optimal levels. A diet rich in beta-carotene, zeaxanthin, lutein, zinc, and omega-3 fatty acids will help to combat vision loss and eye disease.
     
  • Consider taking nutritional supplements
    If you are afraid that your diet does not supply you with the nutrients your eyes need, ask your physician about taking supplements. Some vitamins and antioxidants may have preventive effects against some forms of degenerative eye disease.
     
  • Quit smoking
    If you smoke, quit. If you don’t, do your best to avoid tobacco and second-hand smoke, as both increase your risk of developing eye disease and other chronic health problems.
     
  • Wear eye protection
    When venturing outdoors during the day, wear UV protective eyewear to prevent damage to your eyes.

If you are interested in learning more about women’s health issues, please contact the healthcare experts at Good Samaritan Hospital of San Jose by calling our Consult-A-Nurse healthcare referral line at (408) 559-2011. Our nurses are available to answer your medical questions 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
