Eyes During the Warmer Months

Your eyes are one of the most important organs in your body. During the warmer summer months, however, they can be hurt by several different things. We at Grand Optical in Hempstead, NY, know a lot about protecting your vision during the warm part of the year. Take these preventative care measures from our optometrist to help protect your eyes from heat and bright light. Visit us for optometry services and eye care from our eye doctor for more assistance.

Preventative Care

Wear sunglasses or eyeglasses: The main cause of eye damage is from bright light and the wind. Wind damage tends to dry out the eyes; it removes the protective film that keeps your eyes moisturized. If a person can protect their eyes from the wind, however, they can stop or delay this drying out process.

If you don't need prescription eyeglasses, get a pair of high-quality sunglasses: Sunglasses will form a barrier between the natural elements such as wind and light. They will provide protection even if their light blocking qualities are not needed. In bright light, always wear sunglasses. Just like the rest of your skin, your eyes can get sunburnt. Damage from prolonged exposure to bright light is also common. Sunglasses will help to block most of the bright light from effecting your eyes.

Use a light moisturizer: Moisturizer around the outside of your eyes and even a small amount on your eye lids is a good way to protect the skin around your eyes. The skin around your eyes will work to protect your eyes from the harsher elements of the weather, and moisturizer will help to keep healthy.
