Protect Your Vision

You may already know that scheduling comprehensive eye exams each year with an ophthalmologist near Chicago is an effective way to protect your healthy vision. But did you know that sports, workplace hazards, and yard work are the leading causes of eye injuries? Talk to your ophthalmologist about preventive eye care. He or she is likely to recommend that you wear safety glasses that offer side protection to reduce your risk of vision loss due to eye injuries.

For more helpful tips on protecting your vision, watch this video and consult an ophthalmologist. This expert discusses why you can’t rely on regular eyeglasses to protect your eyes from injuries caused by airborne yard debris, chemicals, or blunt force trauma.
