Better Protection for Your Eyes

At SWISSCOAT, we want everyone’s eyes to stay healthier for longer, and this starts with proper care at home, at work and with your specialist. This is why we offer advice and guidance to our Hong Kong patients who want to protect their vision. Read through our information page to find out more.

How can I protect my eyes every day?

Protect from the sun: The sun’s ultraviolet rays can have a huge impact on your eye’s health, so, on sunny days, you should always protect them. Wear sunglasses when you can, or wear a brimmed hat that shades your head.

Good lighting when reading and writing: Poor lighting can cause your eyes to tire out quicker, and digital screens that are brighter than your environment can confuse or tire your eyes further, as your eyes are constantly adjusting between brightness.

Take breaks on the computer: For professionals that spend a long time on the computer, it’s important to take breaks every hour. These breaks don’t mean switching to another screen, but actual five minutes breaks going for a walk or looking out the window. This will prevent
computer vision syndrome

Get regular check-ups: Regular check-ups will ensure that, when there is a sign that’s of concern, it’s treated as soon as possible. Many conditions only worsen when left untreated, and some can even result in permanent vision loss and blindness.

Check your family history: Checking your family history can help you protect your eyes from any conditions or diseases that are common in you familiar, stopping it long before it becomes a concern.
