Dr. Dan’s New Years Recommendations

New Year's Resolution. Take Care of Your EyesLooking for a healthy new year’s resolution? Don’t overlook your eyes. An eye exam gives the doctor the perfect view of the eyes’ blood vessels and optic nerves, both of which can give away signs of chronic diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure and even some cancers years before a person shows symptoms. Schedule your exam today! #newyearsresolution #eyehealth #eyehealthmatters

Book Your Eye Exam Online


Once again, here are my suggestions for 2024 New Year’s Resolutions to keep your eyesight sharp, and your eyes comfortable all year long:

  • Everyone: Have regular eye exams.  Don’t forget how important it is to have healthy eyes.
  • Computer users:  Take frequent breaks and don’t forget to blink.   Your blink rate drops significantly while you are on the computer.  BLINK, BLINK, BLINK.
  • Smokers: This year again, stop smoking.  Smoking increases your risk for both cataracts and age related macular degeneration.
  • Contact lens wearers: Don’t sleep in your contact lenses and replace your disposable contact lenses regularly .
  • Everybody: Watch your weight and your blood pressure.
  • Diabetics: Control your blood glucose.  Diabetics have an increased risk for diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, and glaucoma.
  • Everybody: Take a daily multi-vitamin loaded with antioxidants.
  • Athletes: Use protective eye wear made of durable polycarbonate lenses.
  • Everybody: Wear sunglasses with 100% UV protection.
  • Everybody: Know your family history for glaucoma and other eye disorders.
  • Travelers: Frequently apply artificial tears when in-flight.  That long flight to Las Vegas will dry yours eyes. They don’t call it the “red eye” for nothing.
  • Young males: Stay away from firecrackers this New Year’s.

Have a Happy and Safe New Year. See all of you in 2024.

You can tell a lot about a person by the way they handle three things: a rainy day, lost luggage and tangled Christmas tree lights. — Maya Angelou
