Last month was Diabetic Eye Disease Awareness Month. Diabetes is the most common factor of adult vision loss and the number one cause of adult blindness. We wanted to share a few prevention tips from the National Eye Institute. (You can find more of their resources by clicking here.) We agree that it is extremely important, in all cases, to have your eyes checked regularly by an optometrist. You can also benefit from following the acronym TRACK.
T: Take your prescribed medications.
R: Reach and maintain a healthy weight.
A: Add more physical activity to your daily schedule.
C: Control your ABCs. (A1C, Blood Pressure, Cholesterol)
K: Kick the smoking habit.
