 Nov 16, 2004 06:23 PST 


Eye specialists recommend screening children's vision to catch such
problems as amblyopia and strabismus early to prevent future vision
loss. Other tips for healthy vision include: Wear sunglasses and hats
to help protect eyes from ultraviolet light, which can cause
cataracts and, perhaps, retinal disease; eat fruits and vegetables
and other good sources of antioxidants, to prevent several eye
diseases; keep away from potentially injurious fireworks; wear eye
protection at home, work and play during sports or when handling
chemicals or yard debris; clean and treat contact lenses properly to
prevent infections and even blindness; do not smoke, a risk factor in
retinal eye diseases; avoid using old mascara, a harbinger of
bacteria that can lead to eye infections; and give children safe toys
without sharp or protruding parts. People with diabetes also should
undergo dilated medical eye exams because early detection and
treatment can help prevent vision loss from diabetic retinopathy.
