Once we stop taking our eyesight for granted, only then can we, excuse the pun, ‘see the light’ when it comes to loving our eyes!
Here are a few simple tweaks you can make right now.
Give them shade!
Sunglasses that block both UV-A and UV-B light from the sun are a great way to safeguard your eyes.
Mind the calories.
Obesity can raise your chances of getting diabetes and contribute to eye conditions like glaucoma or diabetic retinopathy.
Enough of the puff!
Smoking is a harmful habit that can worsen optic nerve damage and raise the risk of eye illness. Stop now!
Know your roots.
Knowing your family history will help you assess the risk factors involved in eye disorders that may be inheritable.
Your eyes will become tired if you stare at a phone or computer screen for extended periods. Yes, it’s also possible to forget to blink, which can cause eye fatigue. So, try the 20-20-20 rule to lessen eye strain:
Look aside for 20 seconds every 20 minutes to 20 feet in front of you.
It’s crucial to wash your hands before inserting or removing your contacts. Additionally, be sure you follow all cleaning guidelines and replace them when necessary.
Nutritious food. Healthy vision.
Try consuming a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and fish high in omega-3, like salmon.
Remember, comfort foods bring…comfort, but no health benefits!
Below is a list of foods to try and avoid which will bring you one step closer to taking care of your health and your eyesight.
- Processed meats
- Fatty fried foods
- Canned foods
- Sugary drinks
