Do’s and Don’ts
Do eat eye friendly foods including carrots, diet rich in fruits and vegetables — especially dark, leafy greens which are rich in vitamin A are good for eyes.
Do wear protective eyewear. This refers to safety glasses and goggles with side shields, used for sports, gardening and hobbies. Polycarbonate lenses are 10 times stronger than ordinary plastic lenses.
Do rest your eyes. Try closing your eyes when given the opportunity.
Do wash your hands often to avoid eye infections.
Do take a break every 20 minutes to give your eye muscles a rest; look away about 20 feet for 20 seconds.
Do get a yearly eye examination to rule out cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic eye disease and macular degeneration.
Deep slow breathing can also reduce eye pressure by increasing the drainage of eye fluid (called the lymphatic system), thereby helping patients with glaucoma.
Sleep eight hours. Getting enough sleep will help your eyes recover from a long day’s work.
Make sure to wash your eyes with clean water every night and every morning when you wake up. This will help keep them from getting infected.
Check your blood sugar. Diabetics are at higher risk for eye disease.
Avoid dusty areas.
Don’t stare at the sun and other bright lights. Looking directly at bright lights and laser pointers can be harmful to your eyes.
Don’t touch your fingers to your eyes after shaking hands with someone.
Don’t stare too long at your computer screen, mobile screens, TV or reading material.
Don’t work in poor light. Reading in poor light can strain your eyes
Don’t smoke. Smoking is as bad for your eyes as it is for your health. Studies have linked smoking to an increased risk of developing age-related macular degeneration, cataract, and optic nerve damage. These conditions can lead to blindness.
