At Country Hills Eye Center, we understand how important good vision is for your quality of life – and our mission is to help patients throughout Ogden, Utah and the surrounding areas maintain beautiful, crystal clear vision for life. Our experienced eye doctors and ophthalmologists treat virtually all eye conditions and diseases, and we strive to create comprehensive treatment plans focused on your long-term vision and eye health. While we offer a variety of treatments for various conditions, we strive to focus on prevention, and there's plenty you can do at home to help protect your eyes for a lifetime.

Diet

Just like any other part of the body, your eyes require specific nutrients and chemicals to function and stay healthy, which means diet is an important and often-overlooked part of eye care. In particular, getting plenty of Vitamin A, antioxidants, and minerals like zinc will give your eyes what they need to stay strong and healthy. Without these nutrients, you're at a greater risk for conditions like macular degeneration and xerophthalmia, which can severely impact vision and lead to blindness.

Safetywear

Trauma and eye injuries are a leading cause of eye problems, and countless injuries occur each year that could've been prevented with simple protective measures. If you're playing sports, working with power tools, or even doing household chores or yard work, your eyes may be at risk of injury. Use safety glasses, safety goggles, or face shields to protect your eyes from damage and debris, and remember that regular eyeglasses never serve as an effective guard against debris or chemicals.

Ultraviolet Exposure

Just like sunlight can cause sunburns, the sun's harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays can damage your eyes over time. In keeping with the American Academy of Ophthalmology, we recommend that everyone protect their eyes from UV exposure. If you'll be in sunlight long enough to tan or burn, you need protection. Simply wearing a wide-brimmed hat or UV-blocking sunglasses is enough to provide significant protection for your eyes.

Eyestrain

While leading experts don't believe that eyestrain, which actually involves stressing the muscles around the eyes, doesn't lead to permanent harm, it's still uncomfortable and can cause watery, red, or dry eyes. To minimize the effects of eyestrain, ensure that you always have enough light, are wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses with the proper prescription, and take regular breaks whenever performing eye strain-inducing tasks like looking at a computer.
