What does your eye health have to do with your favorite place? Take a minute to think back to the last time you visited your feel-good place. What thoughts are running through your mind? They are probably visual impressions, including colors, the mood of the light and the scene where a special event took place. It’s no wonder, because the eyes are a human’s most important sensory organ – they shape our perception. Oftentimes, we don’t notice how important it is to have healthy eyes until our vision deteriorates, reading becomes more difficult or we have problems with near or far vision.
There are factors that make a much more subtle impact on our eyes and have effects we don’t notice directly. These challenges include UV radiation, so-called blue light and everyday eyeglass hygiene.
