Vision care is among the most significant aspects of our physical and overall medical health; and we should always keep an eye on the health and wellbeing of our optical needs! The importance of eye health is almost above all else. It isn’t enough to go to the doctor only when you experience or feel irritation or pain; staying on top of all vision care needs should be kept up even during the significantly healthy times. Due to the immense importance of our eye health, the National Eye Institute (which is a branch off of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services) has claimed the month of May as Healthy Vision Month! Eye problems, diseases, and other vision impairment conditions are among the highest percentage of undiagnosed complications throughout the United States – oftentimes until its too late. It is essential that we not only attend our regular prescription eye exams, but also head to the eye doctor on regular occasions for general check-ups.
The purpose of Healthy Vision Month is to ensure that awareness and education are making their way across the United States in regards to proper vision care. The suitable use of eye safety products, early detection and applicable treatment are all ways in which we as a country can cut down considerably on vision loss – and of course, blindness as a whole. The number one vision test you should request from your doctor is called the comprehensive dilated eye exam. This innocent inspection is quick and easy and allows your eye doctor to check for any possible diseases or future vision loss. These type of procedures are important because most common vision problems have no early signs of detection, but the comprehensive dilated eye exam allows for knowledge in the early stages. It is extremely important to note that the earlier you reveal any vision concern, the higher your chances of saving your sense of sight!
Of course in addition to general check-up, wearing the proper prescription glasses – should you physically need vision-correction – is essential in your day-to-day living and overall vision health. If your eyeglasses prescription is off by even a little bit, your eyes can suffer significantly. The problem with wearing an incorrect prescription on your lenses can cause obvious temporary discomfort. However, furthermore, it can increase the possibility of further damaging your vision needs. It is extremely important to stay up-to-date with your eye health professionals, as well as stay as educated as you can be in regards to your vision care needs! The National Eye Institute offers numerous helpful tips and even general information to help inform the public about meeting the eye health needs or everyone. You too can join in educating your friends and family. Keep you and your loved ones safe from vision loss, and stay informed!

Healthy Smiles Program
Image by Direct_Relief Since 1994, the Healthy Smiles by Direct Relief has provided free dental treatment to 1,800 low-income, uninsured school-age children with severe need. Sponsored by Healthy Smiles, one-day free clinics are hosted by local dentists and Healthy Start programs throughout Santa Barbara County. This free-clinic event was hosted by Dr. Samuel Burg and was staffed by volunteer dentists and hygienists who provided dental care and education to over 60 children that day. Receiving services are low-income, uninsured children identified by their schools as needing professional dental care that they would not have been able to receive without the program. Additionally, children received Dental Packs – toothbrushes, toothpaste and floss – that were donated by multiple healthcare manufacturers to Direct Relief and packed by volunteers at Direct Relief. For some families, event the cost of a toothbrush is too much and children go without. These donated products ensure that children can continue the good oral hygiene practices they learn during their free clinic visitl. Each year, Direct Relief distributes approximately 1,000 child dental kits and 3,400 family dental kits (each of which serves a family of five) with donated dental supplies, which Direct Relief then allocates to their local partner agencies. These agencies distribute the dental kits to the low-income children and families whom they already serve (Photo by Alex Beauchamp)
Healthy Carrot Oatmeal Bites
Image by Chiot's Run As Mr Chiots and I transitioned from buying packaged food, we needed an alternative to the granola bar. When we’re out filming, we need to have snacks that give us energy and keep us from getting too hungry. I discovered the recipe for these healthy cookies several years ago and have been making them ever since. These little cookies make wonderful on the go snacks. They’re packed full of all kinds of healthy ingredients and you can be at peace knowing there’s no high fructose corn syrup, soy protein isolate, artificial colors, flavors, partially hydrogenated fats, GMO ingredients or any of that scary stuff.
