Focus on Healthy Sight for the New Year
Date:12/22/2009

PINELLAS PARK, Fla., Dec. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- As a new decade begins, more Hispanics share in the desire to better themselves by making a New Year's resolution list. Many will start off the year trying to live healthier lifestyles through exercise, a proper diet and regular visits to healthcare professionals. One aspect of overall health and wellness that often gets overlooked is eye health. It's important for Hispanics to include a comprehensive eye exam on their New Year's resolution list to improve their quality of vision throughout the year.

Dr. Madeline Romeu, O.D., F.A.A.O., notices a marked enthusiasm among her patients, not only to see better, but to find a pair of eyeglasses that makes them feel comfortable and satisfied with their new look. She offers some tips for Hispanics to consider healthy sight as a key resolution for the New Year.

"It's crucial to visit your eyecare professional regularly for a complete eye exam and to know as much as possible about your family medical history, especially since an eye exam may detect system-wide conditions, such as diabetes and high blood pressure," said Dr. Romeu. "Eye exams also identify vision-related issues, which are often triggered by cumulative UV exposure. Therefore, it's very important to protect the eyes properly when engaging in outdoor activities."

Exercise and activity are fundamental to overall health and wellness. As people work towards achieving a healthier lifestyle, they are often drawn outdoors for a variety of activities. While outdoor activity is enjoyable, the increased amount of time spent in the sun -- whether you're playing soccer, barbecuing or simply taking a walk -- is not only a danger to the skin, but also poses a significant threat to the eyes.

Simple steps can be taken to stay protected from the sun and its harmful UV rays. Wearing sunscreen while outdoors and selecting proper everyday eyewear, such as Transitions(R) lenses, will help protect the eyes from the sun's UV rays and will help preserve lifelong healthy sight and wellness.

About Transitions Optical, Inc.

Transitions Optical is a joint venture of PPG Industries, Inc. and Essilor International. The first to successfully commercialize a plastic photochromic lens in 1990, today the company is a leading supplier of photochromics to optical manufacturers worldwide. Transitions Optical offers the most advanced photochromic technology and the widest selection of lens designs, materials and brand names.

Transitions(R) lenses are as clear as regular eyeglass lenses until dangerous UV rays are present. Then, the brighter the sun, the darker they get -- getting as dark as sunglasses, providing protection in bright, glaring light. Since Transitions lenses darken only as much as needed, they can be worn comfortably year-round to provide convenience and 100 percent automatic UVA/UVB and glare protection every day -- sunny, cloudy or in between.
