Eye Care is Critical To Safe Driving
Certainly, the most important part of your body for driving is your eyes. Here I outline what I do to manage my eyes.
1. NO HANDS
Starting very young I struggle with sleet in my eyes as a child as well as the occasional sty. Rubbing my eyes with my hands was a practice I learned to stop early, replacing it by using the inside of my shirt.
2. HOT WATER
By my twenties, my morning routine included a hot cloth held against my eyes once a day. Within a decade it was done twice a day, early morning and before sleeping. In my thirties, it became several times a day when I felt the need.
I learned about glasses by the age of 5, because I had to wear them. I did try contacts for a year or two and loved them, however, I stopped because they exploded the issues of itchiness and increased the daily need to soak my eyes.
3. PRESERVATIVE-FREE EYEDROPS
Along the way, I tried many eye drops which never worked well and were always terminated in time. Recently after meeting a wonderful client an experienced nurse, a new level of comfort with preservative-free drops.

The eyes, nose, sinus, and throat are all connected. Keeping the entire system healthy is critical for healthy vision.
