Workplace Eye Wellness Month

Kopolow & Girisgen Doctors of Optometry Supports Workplace Eye Wellness Month

Taking care of your eyes is a lifelong effort that requires attention to eye health at all stages of life. March has been designated Workplace Eye Wellness Month as time to educate the public on the importance of eye safety at work and to encourage people to have their eyes checked regularly by a qualified vision professional. At Kopolow & Girisgen Doctors of Optometry, we provide advice to help patients maintain safety and good vision in the workplace.

Why Is Workplace Eye Wellness Month Important?

Eye injuries from work tasks are a common problem, and some of these injuries can lead to permanent vision loss. Workplace Eye Wellness Month is a time set aside to educate people about workplace hazards and the measures they can take to maintain good eye health and good vision. Workplace Eye Wellness Month also serves to remind individuals to use precautionary equipment, such as machine guards, work screens, and protective goggles to protect your eyes while you work.

Workplace Eye & Vision Issues

Many jobs require working with harsh chemicals that present an eye hazard, dusty environments, high intensity light, or radiation. Machinery can throw off tiny pieces of material that can injure the eyes. These conditions can cause eye injury or result in permanent vision loss. Even staring at computer monitors and smartphone screens for long periods of time can lead to fatigue, eye dryness, and blurring of vision that can impact your ability to work efficiently or enjoy your leisure time.

Your Las Vegas Optometrist Is Your Partner in Eye Wellness

Regular visits to the eye doctor can help you preserve your vision and learn the best way to care for your eyes at every age. Your optometrist can help with computer vision care to reduce eye fatigue, dry eye syndrome treatment, and removal of foreign objects from the eyes. In addition, your eye doctor will provide comprehensive exams to view the internal structures of the eyes to alert you about early signs of trouble that may require more intensive treatment.
