As the temperatures continue to drop outside, you may feel the effects of cold weather. 

Your eyes may feel a little uncomfortable during this time of year as well. But, the good news is that you can care for your vision in the winter with a few simple tips.

During the winter, your eyes become more susceptible to various complications that you may not normally encounter, such as vision loss, irritability, dry eye, or inflammation. This is because cold temperatures and harsh winds constrict the blood vessels in your eyes and corneas, which in turn can affect your vision and cause discomfort.

This time of year, it’s a good idea to take a few extra precautions to protect your eyes and give them some much-needed relief from the cold. Make sure you include these steps in your winter eye care routine this year for healthy vision.

1. Do keep eye drops handy.
2. Do use a humidifier.
3. Do apply a warm compress.

1. Don’t forget UV protection.
2. Don’t stand in direct heat.
3. Don’t avoid the doctor’s office.
