Attention, outdoors enthusiasts and athletes: Matthews Eyecare

Attention, outdoors enthusiasts and athletes 👁️🌄🚴‍♂️! September is Sports Eye Health Safety Month in Aotearoa, and it’s the perfect time to ensure your eyes are in top form for peak performance. Here’s what you need to know:
1️⃣ Protect Those Peepers: Sports can expose your eyes to various risks, from fast-flying balls to UV rays. Always wear appropriate eye protection, such as safety goggles or sports-specific UV protected eyewear. They shield your eyes from impact, debris, and harmful UV radiation.
2️⃣ Regular Eye Check-ups: Athletes rely on their vision for precision and coordination. Regular eye exams can detect issues early and ensure you have the best possible vision. Don’t wait until you notice problems—schedule your eye exam today!
3️⃣ Stay Hydrated: Dehydration can affect your overall health, including your eyes. Keep your body well-hydrated, especially during intense training sessions or competitions.
4️⃣ Rest and Recovery: Overworking your eyes, whether from screen time or intense training, can strain them. Practice the 20-20-20 rule: every 20 minutes, take a 20-second break to look at something 20 feet away. It’s a simple way to reduce eye strain.
5️⃣ Nutrition Matters: A balanced diet rich in nutrients like vitamin A, vitamin C, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants is essential for eye health. Fuel your body with the right nutrients for optimal vision.
7️⃣ Know the Warning Signs: Be aware of symptoms like eye fatigue, blurred vision, or unusual sensitivity to light. These can be signs of eye strain or other issues that require attention.
Your eyes are your most valuable tools in sports. Take the necessary steps to protect and maintain them so you can continue excelling in your chosen activities. 🏀🎾⚽ Catch the cause early, and go beyond regular eyecare at Matthews. Book a comprehensive eye exam today at
