It is very possible to have an eye condition and not even know it; some conditions do not even produce any symptoms. This is why it is important to see an eye doctor each year, something most people neglect to do. An eye doctor can take a thorough look at your eyes and investigate any problems he or she may find.

Try not to touch your eyes. It may seem hard to do, but your hands carry many germs and irritants that can get into your eyes and cause issues. You should also never scratch your eyes. If you must touch or rub your eyes, make sure your hands are clean and that you handle them gently.

Stay active. You may not associate exercise with eye health, but the truth is, it increases circulation. That means there is often less pressure in the eyes. Plus, if you are in tune with your body, you will often know when something does not feel right. Get yourself checked out if you have any concerns.
