Our eyes are very important. Imagine your life without those. It would be very hard to move. It would be very hard to finish tasks. Sad to say, a lot of people are taking their eyes for granted. Don’t be like them. It is your responsibility to take care of your eyes. Here are some of the tips which you can do to protect your peepers.
Eat the right food. Instead of munching on your favorite potato chips, you should get the better options. I suggest that you buy carrots, bell peppers, turkey and sweet potatoes among many others. These foods aren’t costly, right? Better get your grocery bag and fill those with foods that are good for your eyes.
Don’t depend on eye drops. We have the tendency to overuse eye drops. It’s fine if you use it once in a while. But if you depend on it every time you feel that your eyes are itchy, that’s not good. Before you use any eye drop product, it is a must that you consult your doctor and that you thoroughly read instructions. Don’t overuse it because it might backfire.
Rest your eyes from contact lenses. Even if there are contact lenses being advertised that you can wear those for the entire day, it is still suggested that you remove it after 8 or 12 hours. That way, the oxygen can still go to your eyes. The contact lenses block the oxygen so again, I would suggest that you remove it after hours of usage. This also goes for eyeglasses.
Use sunglasses as necessary. We all know that the UV rays are bad for our eyes. So what we can do is to use sunglasses. Make sure that you’d purchase the polarized ones. If you just buy the ordinary sunglasses, these are just tinted. It will not prevent UV rays from affecting your eyes. Polarized sunglasses are more expensive. But that’s going to be worth it.
Exercise your eyes. It is a must that you do some eye exercises. If you are using the computer most of the time, I suggest that you rest for a while. Close your eyes for 10 seconds and repeat the step. You can also look at something which is far from you. These are just simple exercises which you can do for your eyes.
These tips are so easy to do, right? You might also want to share these to your friends. Protect your eyes. As they always say, “Your eyes are the windows to your soul.”
