See the World Through Your Eyes

MUST HAVES  |  OCT 21, 2022


When we talk about health, we will often talk about things like clean dieting and exercising. While these are important to the health of our bodies in many areas, our overall health is determined by much more. Have you considered looking into the health of your eyes? Eye health isn’t just something one must take seriously with age, but rather start early enough to have great vision later in life. Like anything else health-related, the sooner, the better! Let’s see how we can protect our little peepers and even improve sight. 

How much does eye health matter?

Our eyes are more than just two white balls with a small blue, green or brown circle, and they are more than just markers of beauty. Our eyes provide the most important sense of our entire body. Seeing is truly believing when it comes to the relationship between our eyes and our brains. Over 80% of the information our brain receives comes from our sight. Think about it for a second… our eyes kind of work like the screenshot feature on our smartphones. They capture information big and small, and our brain stores them for eternity. If that doesn’t show you how important it is to have good eye health, perhaps these fun facts will:

  • Our eyes are crucial to our survival. The sense of sight helps us spot and register danger in seconds.
  • Our eyes help break the barrier of communication. For example, we are able to understand sign language and facial expressions with our sight.
  •  Our eyes help with memory. Ever heard of photographic memory? That is the ability to remember a piece of information in great detail by capturing it visually.

Treat yourself to great eyewear
