FOR YOUR INFORMATION

Simple Tips for Healthy Eyes by National Eye Institute (https://nei.nih.gov/healthyeyes/eyehealthtips)

Your eyes are an important part of your health. Follow these simple steps for maintaining healthy eyes:

  • Have a comprehensive dilated eye exam: Many eye diseases such as glaucoma, diabetic eye disease, age-related macular degeneration often have no warning signs. A dilated eye exam is the only way to find out whether your eyes are healthy and detect eye disease in their early stages.
  • Eat right to protect your eye sight: eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, such as spinach, kale, carrots is important for keeping your eyes healthy.
  • Protect your eyes by wearing shades: sunglasses protect your eyes from the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
  • Maintain a healthy weight: being overweight or obese increases risk of developing diabetes, which can lead to diabetic eye disease or glaucoma.
  • Quit smoking: research linked smoking to increased risk of developing age-related macular degeneration, cataract and optic nerve damages, which can lead to blindness
  • Give your eyes a rest: if you spend a lot of time on a computer or focusing on any one thing, you sometimes forget to blink and your eyes can get fatigued. Try the 20-20-20 rule: Every 20 minutes, look away about 20 feet in front of you for 20 seconds. This can help reduce eye strain.
