At-home Vision Health Checklist Released for Vision Health Month

In support of Vision Health Month, FYidoctors, has released its vision health checklist. The list aims to raise awareness and make Canadians more mindful of eye health conditions and diseases that often go untreated due to lack of symptoms, and the preventative measures individuals can take daily towards their vision health.

“Eye health is no less important than physical health and it’s crucial that Canadians familiarize themselves with proactive habits and behaviours to keep their eyes healthy,” said Dr. Alan Ulsifer, CEO and Chairman of FYidoctors. “In addition to routine visits to your optometrist, other measures like ensuring workplace safety and proper eyewear should be taken in support of vision health.”

Useful steps Canadians can take to protect their vision health as highlighted on the checklist include:

Wear contact lenses correctly

According to the Center for Disease Control, 40–90% of people do not properly follow their optometrist’s contact lens instructions.

Protect eyes from allergies

While allergies can be tedious to avoid during certain seasonal changes, there are many factors patients can control indoors and with proper medications.

Prioritize fitness and nutrition

High blood pressure and obesity are both risk factors for a variety of eye diseases, so diet and exercise are important to ocular health.

Schedule an eye exam

The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends that adults get a comprehensive eye exam every two years from a qualified optometrist. Children, seniors, and anyone with medical conditions or family history of eye disease should get an exam at least once a year.
