When it comes to yearly resolutions, making sure that your vision is corrected and protected is one of the best things you can do for your overall, long-term health. We spoke with Wayne from the much-loved blog A Modern Standard about his own optical goals for 2017:
Q: Why is eye health important to you?
A: Without sight, I wouldn’t be able to do the things I love. Everything I do requires sight: from watching my favourite movies, to reading piles of books, to appreciating the beautiful views in Vancouver, BC.
Q: What makes you excited to wear glasses?
A: For me, not only is eye health important, style plays a huge part in my life as well. Sometimes at meetings I want to look more mature, so I wear my glasses with a suit. In general, having a stylish pair of frames complements my everyday look so well.
Q: What are some steps you’re taking to improve your eye health or vision?
This year, I plan to go out more and watch less TV. I also plan to schedule regular visits with my optometrist to get my eyes checked. I am nearsighted, so picking up the right frames with the correct prescription is key to my eye health.
