Comprehensive Eye & Vision Health
There are a multitude of steps you can take to improve your eye health, we will just name a few to get you started in implementing the following suggestions:
- Quit smoking or never do it in the first place. Smoking is as bad for your eyes as it is for the rest of your body.
- Be cool and wear your shades. Sunglasses are great for your looks and fashion sense, but their most important job is to protect your eyes from the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
- Give your eyes a rest. If you spend a lot of time at the computer or focusing on any one thing, you sometimes forget to blink and your eyes can get fatigued. Reduce eye strain by looking away every twenty minutes or so for at least twenty seconds.
- Clean your hands, your eyeglasses, and your contact lenses properly. To avoid the risk of infection, always wash your hands thoroughly before putting in or taking out your contact lenses. Make sure to disinfect contact lenses by following instructions properly and replace them at the appropriate rate.
