Don’t lose sight of your eyes

Don't Loose Sight of Your EyesYour eyes also need daily protection, just like your skin. Wear sunglasses to shield them from the sun’s dangerous ultraviolet rays. And rest your eyes throughout the day. If you spend a lot of time looking at a computer, you sometimes forget to blink and your eyes get tired. So try to take frequent breaks from the screen.

You can also help your eyes stay healthy with the right lifestyle choices:

  • Eat lots of fruits and veggies, which are rich in vitamins and minerals, and
    fish like salmon that are high in omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Maintain a healthy weight. This lowers your risk for getting diabetes or other conditions that can lead to vision loss.
  • Avoid eye injuries by using protective goggles or other gear when playing
    sports or working around chemicals and dust.
  • Quit smoking. Research has linked smoking to a higher risk of eye disease
    and cataracts.
