New Year, Healthy Me

The best time to make positive life changes is at the start of a year, with the “new year, new me” trend.

However, have you thought about “new year, healthy me”?

While “look after my health” can be a resolution, we’ll suggest resolutions that guide how to look after your health.

Here are a few new year resolutions that can help improve your general health and eye health.

Eat well

When we hear the words “eat well”, we naturally think of eating endless salads.

But, don’t worry, it’s not that bad!

As a result of eating well, you can help to maintain or lose weight and reduce your risk of developing certain general health and eye conditions.

Eat a balanced diet

The essential part of eating well is to have a balanced diet.

NHS’s Eatwell Guide makes it easy to understand how much of each food group you should eat.

Keeping a food diary can help you keep track of what you’re eating.

Alternatively, apps such as MyFitnessPal help you see the macronutrients (carbs, protein and fat) of your diet at the click of a button.

Portion control

Understanding portion sizes is key to eating a balanced diet to make sure you eat enough of the right food.

Too much of anything can be harmful to your health.

You can find some helpful tips for monitoring and controlling your portion size here.

Have a regular sight test

regular sight test is vital to monitor and diagnose eye conditions and even some underlying health conditions like diabetes.

The earlier an eye condition is caught, the sooner treatment can begin.

Depending on the eye condition, treatment may help prevent the condition from progressing.

Do you know how often you should have a sight test?

If you don’t know when you last had a sight test, make it your resolution to have a sight test this year!

Get enough sleep

Did you know that a good night’s sleep can help maintain or improve your eye health and general health?

Having enough sleep can benefit your immune system, prevent heart disease and diabetes.

However, too much sleep or too little sleep can be just as harmful to your health.

For instance, an early study in America found a correlation between glaucoma and lack of sleep and too much sleep.

The NHS recommends that an adult should have 8 hours of sleep every night.

If you have trouble going to sleep, you can find the NHS’s advice on a sleep routine here.

Stop smoking

Smoking is damaging to your eye’s tissue.

It is proven to increase your likelihood of developing cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

Did you know that after a year of not smoking, your risk of a heart attack halves?

British Heart Foundation explains how each element of a cigarette is harmful and offers practical guidance on how to quit smoking.

NHS Smokefreealso offers support and advice to help you quit.

Wear sunglasses

Sunglasses that block the majority of UV rays coming through can help protect your eye health.

Overexposure to UV light can increase your chance of developing certain conditions like cataracts and AMD.

So, when you’re buying sunglasses, make sure they carry the UV 400 mark, CE or British Standard Mark.

It’s also vital to check how dark they are (the filter category) as category 4, for example, are not suitable for driving.

Are You Concerned About Your Eye Health?

It’s quite common to be concerned about your eye health at some point or another.

We’re going to look at what you should do if you have concerns about your eye health.

Who should I talk to about eye health?

If you experience changes in your eyesight or have concerns about your eye health because of your family history, you should speak with your optician.

Your optician is a better source of information than Googling your symptoms or worries – we all know how that ends!

For eye related issues, you should always speak with your optican rather than your GP.

If necessary, your optician will refer you to the doctor.

What symptoms should I look out for?

Common symptoms

Some of the common symptoms of eye health issues include headaches, itchy eyes, blurry vision and sensitivity to light or dark.

However, it’s essential that you do not self-diagnose an eye condition.

While these symptoms can indicate an underlying eye or health condition, they can also be the result of different factors like stress or lack of sleep.

Sometimes, the common symptoms may simply indicate that you need a new prescription.

If these common symptoms persist, you should speak with your optician.

Serious symptoms

If you see any of the following in your vision you should ring your optician immediately:

⚫️ Flashing lights or a shadow in your vision.

⚫️ Red or painful eyes.

⚫️ Sudden loss of vision.

Make sure you describe your symptoms clearly and accurately.

How can I care for my eyes daily?

If you’re concerned about your eye health, you can help look after your eyes between your regular sight test – and our guide can help you!

You may even be doing some of the eye care steps without realising!

Proactive eye care can help you maintain your eye health and eyesight for longer, but critically, it’s not a guarantee.

Ultimately, a few easy lifestyle changes can help you delay or prevent age-related eye conditions.

As a result, you can help avoid sight loss, benefit from maintaining your independence and lead an enriched life.

Family Eye Health History

When we talk about eye health, it’s essential to be aware of your family’s eye health history.

Hereditary eye conditions in your family are just one of the risk factors of developing an eye condition.

Did you know that your family’s eye health history includes your parents, siblings, aunt, uncles and children?

Which common eye conditions are hereditary?

Some of the common eye conditions (glaucomacataractsmacular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy) can be hereditary. 

However, it’s key to remember that if your family has a history of a particular eye condition, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll develop it.

You should attend your regular sight test to monitor your eye health.

By having a regular sight test, if you do develop an eye condition, your optician can diagnose it early on.

In doing so, it can increase the success of treatment or management of the condition, and help you to continue living an enriched life.

If you have any eye health concerns, you should speak to your optician.

Glaucoma

Primary open-angle glaucoma is the most common form of the condition, and it can be hereditary.

The NHS are vigilant if there’s a family history of glaucoma as it increases your chances of developing it.

Since the symptoms of glaucoma can often be unnoticeable, only a sight test can diagnose the condition.

Consequently, NHS England offers a free NHS sight test to if you:

⚫️ Are over 40 and have a parent, sibling or child with glaucoma.

⚫️ Have been told by an ophthalmologist (eye doctor) that you’re at risk of the condition.

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD)

AMD is one of many forms of macular disease and in some cases, it can be genetic.

A family history of any macular disease increases your chances of developing age-related macular degeneration.

Similar to glaucoma, symptoms of AMD aren’t outwardly noticeable or painful, but a sight test can diagnose the condition.

Diabetic eye disease

Diabetic retinopathy is one of the eye conditions that collectively are known as diabetic eye disease, which can affect anyone with diabetes.

While diabetic eye disease isn’t necessarily hereditary, diabetes in some cases can be genetic.

If you have diabetes, you should attend your diabetic screening, as it can diagnose diabetic retinopathy.

It can also be beneficial to have a general health check to monitor conditions like diabetes.

So, by being aware of your family history, you can help care for your eyes accordingly.

As a reminder, if you have any eye health concerns, you should speak to your optician.

What You Need To Know About Eye Health

This National Eye Health Week, we’re going to tell you what you need to know about eye health!

It’s important to be aware of different eye conditions, why a regular sight test is essential and your risk factors.

Did you know that if you have any eye health concerns, you should speak with your optician?

Common eye health conditions

As we age, our eyesight and eye health naturally change.

However, there are also other risk factors that affect eye health which we’ll highlight shortly.

When our eye health is poor as a result of these factors, we are more likely to develop an eye condition.

In some cases, poor eye health and eye conditions can cause sight loss.

As a result, this can affect a person’s independence and increase their risk of falls.

That’s why it’s important to know what to keep an eye out for and how to look after your eyes.

So, here’s what you need to know about eye health conditions:

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD)

⚫️ Age-related macular degeneration, or AMD, is one of many types of macular disease.

⚫️ AMD causes a blind spot in your central field of vision and usually, it doesn’t affect peripheral vision.

⚫️ Common symptoms of AMD include visual distortions, such as straight lines looking wavy.

⚫️ Over time your vision can worsen and it can affect your ability to do things such as read, drive and recognise faces.

You can find out more about AMD here, or speak with your optician if you have any concerns.

Did you know?

It’s possible to train your eyes to increase the span of vision and use peripheral vision to read.

This is the same technique that speed reading uses. Over time, the eye becomes better at using peripheral vision to see detail.

As a result, it can help a person living with AMD to continue enjoying hobbies and safely navigate their surroundings.

Cataracts

⚫️ A cataract is a clouding of the lens inside your eye, resulting in cloudy, blurry or dim vision.

⚫️ The condition can gradually interfere with your vision and make it difficult to see detail clearly.

⚫️ With time, a cataract can develop and it may require an operation to help restore sight.

⚫️ Better lighting and glasses can initially help improve a person’s level of vision.

You can read more about cataracts here, or speak with your optician if you have any concerns.

Did you know?

As a cataract develops slowly, it can be difficult to spot it – but a sight test can!

Glaucoma

⚫️ Glaucoma can cause ‘tunnel’ vision due to damage to the optic nerve.

⚫️ The condition is usually the result of a build-up of pressure in the eye which damages the optic nerve.

⚫️ The earlier glaucoma is diagnosed and treated, the lower the chance of irreversible sight loss.

⚫️ Usually, eye drops are used to treat glaucoma, but sometimes an operation is needed.

You can read more about glaucoma here, or speak with your optician if you have any concerns.

Did you know?

Although glaucoma tends to be due to high eye pressure, it’s possible to develop glaucoma even if your eye pressure is within the normal range.

This is known as normal-tension glaucoma.

Diabetic eye disease

⚫️ Diabetic retinopathy is a form of diabetic eye disease and it occurs when blood vessels at the back of the eye are damaged.

⚫️ The longer someone has diabetes and uncontrolled blood sugar levels, the higher the chance of developing this eye complication.

⚫️ If left untreated it can cause blurred or reduced vision, which can lead to blindness.

⚫️ If you have diabetes, you should attend your diabetic screening appointment as treatment is available if the condition is caught early.

You can read more about diabetic retinopathy here, or speak with your optician if you have any concerns.

Did you know?

As early detection of diabetic retinopathy can reduce your risk of vision loss by 95%, it’s important to attend your diabetic screening and have a regular sight test.

How are eye conditions diagnosed and monitored?

A sight test can help to identify and monitor any eye health conditions that you may have.

That’s because most symptoms are only visible with professional equipment.

Having a regular sight test can help to identify an eye condition as early as possible.

Depending on the condition, early identification can help to increase the success of treatment.

Although treatment may be unable to cure a condition, it may reduce symptoms and prevent further sight loss.

However, once vision loss occurs, the damage is often irreversible.

So, having a regular sight test is important to help you see better and live better for longer.

Your risk factors of developing an eye condition

While anyone can develop an eye condition, there are some factors that can increase a person’s risk.

Age and any family history of eye disease can increase the likelihood of having an eye condition at some point in life.

Additionally, lifestyle is also a considerable risk factor, which includes exercise, diet, smoking and drinking.

You can find out more about your eye health risk using an eye health calculator. However, please remember that this is only an estimate.

If you have any questions or concerns about your eye health, you should speak with your optician.

diabetic retinopathy

As part of our ‘in focus’ series, we’re going to explore another common eye condition, diabetic retinopathy.

Our ‘in focus’ series includes age-related macular degenerationglaucoma and cataract.

Did you know that diabetic retinopathy can affect anyone who has type 1 or 2 diabetes?

What is diabetic retinopathy?

Diabetic retinopathy is a complication of diabetes that affects the eye.

It can affect anyone who has diabetes, whether they’re being treated with insulin, tablets or diet only. It’s the most common form of diabetic eye disease.

The condition occurs when blood pressure and blood sugar levels are always high.

This can cause a blockage, leakage or haphazardous growth of small blood vessels in the retina.

Damage to these blood vessels can affect how your retina receives what you see.

How does the condition affect vision?

The damage to the blood vessels in the retina can cause black spots or gaps in your vision.

As the condition progresses, it can become difficult to carry out daily activities and it may even reduce a person’s independence.

However, it’s possible to maintain your vision with good eye care and

If diabetic retinopathy is left untreated it can cause permanent damage to your vision.

Unfortunately, diabetic retinopathy is one of the most common causes of sight loss as there aren’t any obvious symptoms until the condition advances.

Reduce your risk of diabetic retinopathy

You can help reduce your risk of developing diabetic retinopathy whether or not you have diabetes.

We advise making a few lifestyle changes as well as caring for your eyes between your regular sight tests (or diabetic screening).

By taking care of your general health, you can help to control your diabetes or reduce your risk of developing it.

It’s as simple as having a healthy, balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals, regular exercise and maintaining a healthy weight.

You can also further benefit your health by keeping your blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol levels under control.

These lifestyle changes can be beneficial for everyone.

Naturally, by reducing the risk of diabetes, it also decreases the risk of developing diabetic retinopathy.

Diagnosing the condition

If you have diabetes, it’s crucial to attend your diabetic screening as the earlier the condition it caught, the more effective the treatment.

However, it’s important to also continue attending your regular sight test to monitor your eye health and prescription.

If you’re concerned about your vision, make an appointment with your local optician.

age-related macular degeneration, visual distortion, blurry vision

To continue our ‘in focus’ series we turn our attention to age-related macular degeneration.

Our ‘in focus’ series includes glaucomacataract and diabetic retinopathy.

Did you know that age-related macular degeneration doesn’t affect your peripheral vision?

What is age-related macular degeneration?

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is an eye condition that affects a part of the retina called the macula.

While there are different forms of macular conditions, age-related macular degeneration is the most common.

How does AMD affect vision?

Age-related macular degeneration impairs your central vision so you may notice the symptoms when looking straight ahead.

The condition can cause visual distortions, dark spots, gaps or blurry vision.

It’s also common for straight lines to appear wavey – you can use the Amsler Grid to check this.

As the condition progresses it can become difficult to see clearly.

You might notice words missing as you read, straight lines or doorways looking bent or objects in front of you changing shape or colour.

The visual disruptions can make it a struggle to complete daily tasks like eating, watching TV and driving.

The good news is that because AMD only affects central vision, it’s unlikely that you’ll lose all of your sight as peripheral vision usually remains.

Although you can’t recover any sight loss, daily eye care can help to prevent falls and maintain independence within the home.

Signage can also be beneficial to help a person safely navigate their surroundings.

What are the two types of the condition?

Wet and dry are the two types of age-related macular degeneration.

Both of these names reflect what an optometrist can see inside your eye when examining it.

It’s not because your eyes are watery or dry!

Dry AMD develops slowly and gradually affects your vision, whereas wet AMD develops quickly and can damage your vision within a short period.

Neither types of the condition cause pain or alter the appearance of your eye.

That’s why a sight test is important to help diagnose the condition as you may not always notice the symptoms.

Diagnosing age-related macular degeneration

Until recently, most people with AMD were unaware they had it until their sight was affected.

Nowadays, optometrists can use sophisticated eye scanning machines to help diagnose early AMD.

Diagnosing AMD early is important as treatment’s only effective before the condition causes sight loss.

It’s important to remember that your genes may increase your risk of AMD.

That’s why it’s vital to attend your regular sight test to help preserve your vision.

cataracts, cloudy vision, unclear vision

We’re answering that all-important question “what is a cataract?” as part of our ‘in focus’ series.

Our ‘in focus’ series covers glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration.

Did you know that an estimated 30% of people aged 65+ have a visually impairing cataract in one or both eyes?

What is a cataract?

A cataract is an eye condition where the lens in our eyes becomes cloudy and affects how light enters the eye.

This condition forms inside the eye, rather than over it. It’s a common misconception that a cataract forms over or outside the eye.

A cataract can develop in either one or both of your eyes as part of the natural ageing of the eye.

As cataracts develop gradually, it means that any changes to your vision may not always be noticeable.

That’s why it’s important to attend your regular sight test to help diagnose or monitor the condition.

How can cataracts affect vision?

Cataracts can affect your vision and cause sight loss as the condition progresses.

As the condition causes cloudy, blurry or even misty vision, it can be difficult to see detail in the world around us.

It may become harder to carry out daily activities such as driving or even recognising faces.

The condition may also cause fading of colours, difficulty seeing in dim lit conditions and finding bright lights dazzling.

However, in a lot of cases vision can benefit from simply prescribing and wearing the correct glasses.

If you currently wear glasses, it may often seem like your glasses are dirty even when they’re clean.

Can the eye condition be treated?

If your cataract is severe and restricts your daily life, your optician may refer you for cataract surgery to treat the condition.

There’s no need to worry because the operation is a quick and routine procedure.

In fact, the surgery is usually offered as an outpatient appointment.

After surgeons remove the cloudy lens, they will insert a plastic or silicone lens.

The artificial lens is designed to not need replacing for the rest of your life.

Of course, with any surgery there are risks. However, cataract surgery is one of the most common operations in the UK and is highly successful.

Whether you wear glasses to ease your symptoms or need surgery, it’s possible to see better and live better with cataracts.

It's All In Your Family History

Eye conditions become more common as we age and it’s all in your family history!

Your family history of eye health helps you know what to keep an eye out for.

For example, ethnicity is an important part of your family history as it affects your risk of certain eye conditions.

People of Asian or Afro-Caribbean descent are more likely to develop a common eye condition than other groups of our society.

So, it’s worth paying attention to your family’s eye health so you know what to look out for!

It’s also important to attend your regular sight test to increase the chance of early detection of an eye condition.

Usually, the earlier an eye condition is diagnosed, the easier it is to successfully treat or reduce further deterioration.

Who does my family history include?

When your optician asks about your family history of eye health, remember to mention your parents, grandparents, aunties and uncles.

Inheriting our parents’ eyes

Eye colour isn’t the only thing that we inherit from our parents!

We can also inherit a number of eye conditions such as glaucoma, cataract and astigmatism.

Knowing your family history is especially important if you’re a parent and your child is having a sight test. Please provide as much information as possible to your child’s optometrist.

Your family history tells an optician which common eye conditions you’re more likely to develop.

A regular sight test monitors symptoms and progression of any eye conditions.

Your optician will tell you when your next sight test is due. This is determined by your risk factors, including your family history.

It’s important to follow your optician’s advice as well as looking after your eyes on a daily basis.

Common eye conditions and ethnicity

People of Asian or Afro-Caribbean origin are more likely to develop a common eye condition than people of different origins.

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD)

The Afro-Caribbean population have a greater risk of AMD under the age of 60 compared with the Caucasian population.

On the other hand, those of Caucasian origin are more likely to develop AMD over the age of 60 compared with those of Afro-Caribbean origin.

Cataract

Those from an Asian background are more likely to develop cataract compared with those from an Afro-Caribbean or Caucasian background.

Glaucoma

People of Afro-Caribbean heritage are 4 to 8 times more likely to develop glaucoma than those of Caucasian heritage.

Diabetic retinopathy

People of Asian and Afro-Caribbean origin have a greater risk of diabetic retinopathy compared with people of Caucasian origin.

However, those of Asian heritage are 3 times more likely to develop diabetic retinopathy than those of Caucasian heritage.

Refractive error

While a refractive error isn’t an eye condition, it is a common eye disorder.

It occurs when the shape of the eye can’t focus light rays correctly.

People of Caucasian origin are more likely to develop a refractive error than people of Afro-Caribbean origin.

The importance of daily eye care

Looking after your eyes between visits to your optician is crucial.

Daily eye care can help to keep your eyes otherwise healthy, especially if your family history means you have a greater risk of an eye condition.

While healthy eyes may not prevent an eye condition, they may help to delay the onset or progression of an eye condition.

Daily Eye Care Guide

Daily eye care is essential to help us maintain our eyesight and eye health so we can see better and live better for longer.

This guide explains the lifestyle changes and proactive behaviours that can help you care for your eyes.

What is eye care?

When we think about eye care, we tend to associate it with just a sight test.

However, eye care doesn’t start or end with a sight test.

Eye care involves many proactive daily behaviours – in addition to having a regular sight test.

Daily eye care advice

The following daily eye care steps can help you care for your eyes between visits to your optician:

Wear the correct glasses

Wearing the correct glasses can help to prevent eye strain, headaches and vision from deteriorating.

Your glasses help to achieve better vision, which can also help to enhance your physical and psychological health.

For example, when you actively think about your vision, it helps to maintain your independence, reduce your risk of falls and ease low moods or distress.

If you’re not sure when you need to wear your glasses, speak to your optician as soon as possible.

Wear sunglasses

Protect your eyes from UV light by wearing close-fit wraparound sunglasses to minimise the sunlight reaching your eyes.

In doing so, it will help to reduce your long-term risk of developing a cataract as a result of overexposure to UV rays.

A balanced diet

Eating a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids, zinc and vitamins C and E can help to support your eyes from age-related vision problems like macular degeneration.

Foods that naturally contain these supplements include leafy greens, oily fish, eggs, beans, nuts and citrus fruits.

Reducing the frequency or avoiding harmful habits and junk food can improve your overall health and keep your eyes healthy.

Stop smoking

Smoking damages tissue in the eye through an increase in the number of free radicals which speed up ageing.

In addition, smoking also affects the body’s absorption of necessary minerals and vitamins.

The accelerated ageing and lack of vitamins mean that smoking can double the risk of sight loss, as well as increasing the risk of age-related eye conditions, particularly macular degeneration and cataract.

The ageing eye naturally increases your risk of developing an eye condition, so it’s important to attend your regular sight test.

For advice and support on quitting smoking, visit the NHS website here.

Regular sight test

While a regular sight test is an essential part of eye care, it’s not the only step to maintain eyesight and eye health.

It’s essential to attend your regular sight test to monitor your prescription and eye health.

A regular sight test is every two years unless your optician advises otherwise.

Remember to use our eye care advice between your regular sight test!
