How to take care of your eyes  

Posted by Lowee in ,


  • Eat lots of fruits & veggies! Carrots, loaded with beta carotene are especially helpful in maintaining healthy eyes.
  • Use allergen-reducing eye drops sparingly. Using an allergen-reducing eye drop during allergy season to ‘get the red out’ and sooth itchiness may help on a limited basis, but chronic daily use can actually make the problem worse.
  • Try not to spend so much time looking at your computer screen. (As a matter of fact, now would be a good time to give your eyes a break, since you’re not doing anything too important.)
  • Dont ever rub your eyes when you have something in your eye!
  • Wear UV protective sunglasses. Get polarized lenses, NOT just darker lenses. The lenses that only make the world darker will just make your pupils dilate and don’t do a thing to stop the UV rays. You can buy a lot of UV protective discount prescription eyeglasses for you to be protective with the sun. Prolonged exposure to UV rays can harm your eyesight, protection in youth can help prevent loss of eyesight in later years.
  • Be sure to wear goggles or other eye protective wear when working with chemicals or any place with harmful airborne particulates.
