1. Eye Tests
The first and probably most important thing you can do for your eyes, is having regular eye tests with an optician, eye clinic, or ophthalmologist.

The festive season is now upon us and it is a great time of year, but while most people are preparing themselves for Christmas, hospitals, eye doctors and eye clinics are preparing for a rise in the number of eye injuries at this time of year. The majority of the common eye injuries during Christmas time are avoidable and here we will look at some of these eye injuries and how you can help prevent them and have an eye injury-free festive season.
Christmas is nearly upon us and I expect many parents and families are looking at what toys to buy their children this year. Christmas should be a happy, fun time of year with children playing with their new toys, but thousands of children every year suffer from eye injuries caused by toys. These can range from minor accidents, which don’t require any attention from an eye doctor, to more serious accidents and even blindness. Some examples of eye injuries caused by toys are corneal abrasions, increased intraocular pressure and traumatic cataracts.
