Keep your eyes healthy

Tips for keeping your eyes healthy

Eat for good vision: Leafy greens, citrus/berries, eggs, fatty fish, almonds…
Regularly eating foods with nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, lutein, zinc, and vitamins C and E may help fight problems like macular degeneration and cataracts.

Quit smoking: Smoking increases the risks of getting cataracts, optic nerve damage, and degeneration.

Wear sunglasses: Too much UV exposure makes you more likely to get cataracts and macular degeneration. Choose sunglasses that block 99% to 100% of both UVA and UVB rays.

Use safety eyewear: Use safety eyewear at home, at work, and while playing sports. If you work with hazardous or airborne materials, wear safety glasses every time.

Take a break: Staring at the computer screen can cause eyestrain, blurry vision, difficulty focusing at a distance, dry eyes, headaches, neckache, backache, and shoulder pain. Every 20 minutes look 20 feet away for 20 seconds.

Visit your eye doctor: Get your eyes examined regularly to find any eye diseases that can be treated in earlier stages.
