Protect Your Eyes at Work

Is your job putting your eyes at risk? You may not realize it, but many jobs—even those that seem fairly safe such as sitting at a desk all day—could potentially be hazardous for your eyes. In fact, you’d probably be astounded to know that 10,000,000 Americans visit an eye doctor each year due to problems they are experiencing as a result of computer use. Unsurprisingly, there are also other jobs that present a much more obvious risk to your eyes, such as gardening, woodworking, welding, working with chemicals and others.

Transforming your body is one thing, but when it comes to changing the appearance of your face, you may be reliant on masks, makeup or both.

Pink Eye: How to Protect Your Eyes

Glaucoma: Early Indicators, Diagnosis & Treatment

More than three million Americans are living with glaucoma—an ocular condition which, if not treated, can lead to irreversible blindness.

When the optic nerve becomes damaged, one can experience a range of unpleasant and even painful symptoms, before their sight is irreparably compromised.
