General eye care
vision for life
Every Olympus Eye Associates patient benefits from our general eye care process. We take the time to get to know you, your health history, your symptoms, and your vision goals. We provide a comprehensive eye exam, which begins with a discussion of your medical history.
Our Utah eye doctors take a holistic look at your eye health to construct a personalized treatment plan that will meet your needs, address any symptoms, and ensure your vision health for years to come. Ensure that your eyes remain healthy by following some of our tips below.
Eat right and protect your eyesight
Experts at the Mayo Clinic have put together an important list of foods that help you maintain healthy eyes. These foods inlcude Omega-3 rich foods, Zinc rich foods, frutis and vegetables.
Maintain a healthy weight
Being overweight or obese increases your risk of developing diabetes and other systemic conditions, which can lead to vision loss.
Wear protective eyewear
Wear protective eyewear when working in construction, playing sports such as racquetball, and doing jobs around the house. Protective eyewear includes safety glasses and goggles, safety shields, and eye guards especially designed to provide the correct protection for a certain activity.
stay away from smoking
Smoking is as bad for your eyes as it is for the rest of your body. Research has linked smoking to an increased risk of developing age-related macular degeneration, cataract, and optic nerve damage, all of which can lead to blindness.
