Follow These Steps to Look After Your Eye Health
Wednesday, 16 June 2021

You are no doubt well aware of what needs to be done to ensure that your body remains fit and healthy – eat a balanced diet, exercise regularly – but what about your eye health? Like any other part of your body, you should look after your eyes. Vision is an important part of life, and if you don’t look after your eyes, you could experience debilitating vision problems further down the road. Here are the steps you should follow to look after your eye health.

Regular eye tests

 
If you have 20-20 vision, you might mistakenly think that you do not have to visit your optician for an eye test. However, as vision changes over time, you should still keep up to date with your regular check-ups so that changes are caught and dealt with early on before they start to affect your daily life. Look upon your eye test as you would visiting the dentist – though you may not have any obvious issues, both are part of your personal care and maintenance routine. Visit your optician at least once a year to stay on top of your eye health.
 

Wear glasses whenever required

 
If you are short-sighted, your optician will have prescribed you prescription glasses to help correct your vision and enable you to see clearly. It is highly important that you wear those glasses, particularly when carrying out detailed tasks such as driving, to protect yourself and others and to guard against further deterioration of your sight. However, there are also other situations in which you should wear glasses to protect your eyes. For example, if your job requires you to spend long periods of time in front of a screen, computer glasses will help to protect your eyes from eyestrain.

Eat for eye health

 
As with your body as a whole, your diet has a huge effect on your eye health and it is therefore important that you consume a balanced, nutrient-rich diet to ensure that your eyes remain in the best of health. While it might be a myth that carrots help you see in the dark, they nevertheless contain vitamin A and beta carotene, both of which are essential nutrients for eye health. Likewise, oily fish that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids contribute to visual development, and leafy green vegetables contain antioxidants that are important for eye health.
 

Protect your eyes from the sun

 
Just as your skin can be damaged from unprotected sun exposure, so too can your eyes. It is therefore important that you protect your eyes from harmful UV rays in bright weather. Wear sunglasses with a high UV protection rating to ensure that all harmful rays are preventing from entering your delicate eyes. Sunglasses are available in a range of styles to suit all tastes and at a range of price points, so there is no excuse for you to be caught without sunglasses in bright weather.
