How To Take Care Of Your Eyes?
Finally! It’s time to start caring for your eyes right!
Electronic gadgets have made the worst impact on your eyes! It’s not a light issue. Eyes are a blessing, and keeping them in optimal health is necessary!
We care for your eyes health and have a few solutions to prevent you from falling prey to various eyesight issues!
- Eating healthy
- Stop Smoking
- Wear Sunglasses

- Wear prescription glasses
- Wear work glasses
Let’s dive into their details!
You know: ” what we eat is what we become.”
Our eyes are also nutrient hungry. Various nutrients like lutein, zinc, omega three fatty acids, and even Vitamin E and C keep our eyes healthy and fit.
Eating food rich in these nutrients will give a boost to our eyesight.
Are you wondering which foods provide such nutrients?
To benefit from such nutrients, fill up your plate with:
- Leafy veggies like spinach, collards, broccoli, etc.
- Salmon, tuna, fish oil, etc
- Eggs, beans, and various other protein sources (nonmeat)
- Various fruits like oranges
Do you smoke? If yes, then stop smoking as it has a tremendous impact on our eyes’ health. It causes cataracts, eye muscle degeneration, and even damages our optic nerve. If you are trying to kick this habit out of your lifestyle, then keep on trying! You will eventually succeed!
Ultraviolet rays are deadly to our eyes. We not only become blind but also become victims of various eye problems. Hence, it’s necessary to always wear sunglasses before going outdoors.
You should choose a pair of shades that provide about 99 to about 100% UVA and UVB blockage.
If you wear contact lenses, they also provide you UV protection, but not too much. Hence, you should be extra careful and wear sunglasses over them for additional security.
Do eye exercise
Have you ever noticed that you don’t blink too much whenever you use a smartphone or computer?
Not blinking increases strain over our eyes muscles. This strain makes our optic nerve fragile, hence causing extensive pressure over the eyeball.
Therefore, to strengthen your eye muscles, you must take a little break and practice some eye exercises, like moving your eyeballs left or right or blinking your eyes.
These little 5-minute exercises boost up your blood circulation, hence improving your eye muscles’ strength!
Use prescription glasses
Do you often see things blurry?
Yes? Then, fellas, it means your eyesight is getting weak. The best way to deal with this issue is to wear prescription glasses. They help you focus and improve your vision, but the important thing is to wear these goblets regularly.
Are you thinking that not regularly wearing them will give your eyes some rest? Wrong! This action will now make your eyesight worse!
Wear Work Glasses
Those days where people only used to wear prescription glasses are long gone! With the varying spec styles and designs, wearing these specs has become quite trendy.
They are especially famous among office workers. These work glasses have been designed to reduce glare, therefore reducing pressure on your eyes.
Therefore, you not only look incredible and gorgeous while wearing these tumblers, but you also get to keep your eyes safe!
Limit Your Computer Time
Too much of everything is terrible. You know that, right? Similarly, using too much smartphone, laptop, or even computer, can cause
- Eye dryness
- Body pain
To prevent these problems, you should
- Wear computer glasses, a.k.a work glasses

Eyes are precious. Once gone, you can’t have them back! Hence, it’s time to start caring for your eyes right! Exercising your eyes, limiting your screen time, and using glasses, both prescription and non-prescription ones will improve your eyesight.
