20's and 30's
20's and 30's Eyes
If you’re like most people in their twenties and thirties, you enjoy
excellent vision. Maybe you are emmetropic—that is, your vision is
naturally 20/20, and hasn’t changed since you were a child. Perhaps your
20/20 vision comes with the assistance of the glasses or contact lenses.
If you’re doing the right things to help maintain good health, your
eyesight will stay at the same level for a decade or more.
The single best way to protect your vision is through regular professional eye examinations. You may be at special risk for eye problems if there is a family history of eye disease, diabetes, high blood pressure or poor vision. In between examinations, if you notice a change in your vision —or your eye is injured in any way— contact your doctor!
Getting enough rest, eating foods rich in antioxidants, taking special care in applying cosmetics and hair spray, and—most of all—washing your hands often to help keep your eyes free of germs and bacteria that cause infections are some healthy habits that are important to maintain proper eye health.
At this age, you have more vision correction
options than before to address farsightedness, nearsightedness or astigmatism
to bring you great visual clarity. This is a good time to learn more
about how your eyes
work, to help you understand why you have good vision today—and what
changes you may begin to see as you reach your mid- to late thirties.
These are your most active and fast-moving years. Your vision is important in your work and play, as you delve into your career, start a family, or pursue a college degree.
