While corrective glasses and contact lenses can help address many conditions that lead to diminished vision, there are some causes that can’t exactly be corrected. The degree to which certain conditions can impair your vision depends on several different factors, and some people may be more predisposed to developing them than others. Today, we take a look at a few of the most common ones, including age-related macular degeneration (AMD), cataracts, and glaucoma.

You know your eyes are important. You use them every day. Yet, like many people, you might not realize how important routine eye exams are to maintaining the health of your eyes and the quality of your eyesight. While every day habits like what you eat, how often you exercise (if at all), and whether or not you protect your eyes when it counts play a significant role in whether or not you maintain your healthy eyes for life. However, without routine exams to ensure that there are no developing concerns or issues to address, those efforts may end up being ineffective at preserving your eye health.

Millions of people rely on corrective contact lenses to enjoy the benefits of clear, healthy vision.

Today, we examine a few of these benefits to help you determine if Dailies Total 1® lenses are right for you.

When it comes to your overall health and quality of life, there isn’t much that regular exercise can’t improve. Yet, you may not realize that includes your eye health. From health-related eye problems to age-related vision impairment, maintaining a routine schedule of exercise (and a healthier lifestyle overall) can help you improve your eye health and reduce your risks of experiencing chronic issues later in life.

As a chronic condition, diabetes impacts most of your body’s cellular action. Cells rely on glucose (sugar) for energy, and the disease inhibits your body’s ability to control and process it. This can have several significant impacts on your overall wellbeing, including your eye health. In fact, the most common cause of blindness in people under the age of 60 is diabetic retinopathy, though other eye diseases are also commonly associated with diabetes.
