How the eye works
It’s important to protect your eyes from UV lights. The human eye is a marvel of built-in engineering, combining reflected light, lens imaging capability, multiple lighting adjustments, and information processing – all in the space of your eyeball.
When working properly, the human eye converts light into impulses that are conveyed to the brain and interpreted as images.
Protecting your eyes
If you work in a hazardous environment, such as a construction zone or workshop, or you participate in ball sports or extreme sports, sturdy, shatter-and-impact-resistant eyewear is a must.
This is very important when considering eye protection for both adults and children.
Seeing clearly is just one part of your overall eye health. It’s important to have regular eye exams whether or not you wear glasses or contacts, and even if your vision is sharp. Problems can be spotted with a comprehensive eye exam giving special considerations for kids and contacts.

Tired of wearing glasses or contact lenses? There are several surgical methods that can correct your eyesight and, in most cases, give you the freedom of seeing well without corrective lenses.
Some of the most common eye diseases include cataracts, diabetes, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.
Eye problems can range from mild to severe. Some are chronic, while others may resolve on their own, never to appear again.
The general rule is if your eyes don’t look good, feel good, or see well, you should visit your doctor.
Vision over 40
If you’re among the 85 million baby boomers in the United States and Canada (born between 1946 and 1964), you’ve probably noticed your eyes have changed. Presbyopia, the normal, age-related loss of near-focusing ability, usually presents a problem in our 40s, requiring new vision correction solutions.
Learn about measures you can take to keep seeing clearly for years to come.
Vision over 60
As our physical strength decreases with age, our eyes also exhibit an age-related decline in performance as we reach our 60s and beyond. Age-related eye changes are perfectly normal, but others may signal a disease process. It’s important to recognize signs and symptoms, and perhaps even more important to mitigate the effects of aging with some simple and common sense strategies.
