5 Tips to Keep Your Eyes Healthy

If you’re reading this blog, chances are you spend at least part of your day staring at a computer screen. And while this doesn’t usually cause any major problems (unless you spend all day on it every day), if you neglect to look after your eyes and give them the care they need, it could lead to serious issues in the future. In fact, according to Harvard Medical School, about 50% of Americans suffer from some sort of eye disease or condition. To help keep your eyes healthy and prevent any issues from arising in the future, try these five tips

1) Get Enough Vitamin C

Of all vitamins, Vitamin C is perhaps most responsible for keeping your eyes healthy. It helps maintain good vision and aids in fighting off cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Eating vitamin C-rich foods can help reduce inflammation in your eyes, which can lessen eye strain when you’re working on a computer all day. A diet rich in vitamin C can also help prevent bloodshot eyes that often lead to tiredness and headaches. You should aim to get at least 90 milligrams of vitamin C each day.

 Foods high in vitamin C include oranges, grapefruits, strawberries, broccoli and spinach. Other food sources include kiwi fruit, bell peppers and Brussels sprouts.

2) Wear Sunglasses Outside

If you’re spending all day outdoors, opt for sunglasses with 100% UV protection. If your sunglasses don’t block out UVA and UVB rays, they can lead to painful eye problems like cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration. Always look for products that are labeled UV400 or 100% UV Protection.

3) Use an Eye Cream

Every night before bed, cleanse your face and apply a light moisturizer. Then, use an eye cream for its hydrating benefits. There are many eye creams on store shelves, but it’s best to consult with a professional at an upscale department store to see which one is best for you. Many eye creams have ingredients that can cause irritation if they don’t work well with your skin type.

4) Stay Hydrated

For overall health, it’s recommended that you drink at least eight glasses of water per day. Water helps flush toxins out of your body and helps hydrate your eyes, preventing dryness and irritation. You can also apply eye drops to soothe any redness. Even if you don’t wear contacts or glasses, it’s still essential that you protect your peepers from dust and debris on a daily basis.

5] Don’t Smoke or Drink Alcohol

Smoking and drinking are two major risk factors for serious eye problems. There’s a reason that drinking like a fish has become synonymous with bad eyesight. Staying away from alcohol and smoking will ensure clear vision for years to come. If you want to make sure your eyes stay healthy, stop smoking or cutting back on how much you drink today. It may seem difficult at first, but quitting is worth it in the long run. Not only will your body thank you, but so will your vision!
