Must Do Tips For Healthy Eyes
- Posted on: Jul 31 2023
The eyes are the window to the soul. But, maybe even more importantly, they’re a vital organ necessary not just for sight, but a vital part of helping us interact with the world around us and also form memories and connections, not just from a social standpoint but also a physiological one. With care tips all over the internet about how to take care of your hair, how to take care of your skin, and how to take care of your body, it is important to also take care of your eyes. Here are some vital, must-use tips to ensure your eyes are as healthy as they can be.
Be Mindful Of Your Eyes Getting Sunburn
Yes, you read that right! Not just reserved for the skin, your eyes can get sunburnt too, in a similar way as your skin! The harmful UV rays of the sun can affect your eyes as well. When looking at highly reflective surfaces, such as the surface of bodies of water, white snow, or sand at beaches, the UV rays can enter your eyes and cause damage ranging from irritation to temporary vision loss! To keep that from happening make sure you have a pair of UV-blocking sunglasses.
This one might be a head-scratcher, but exercise helps all aspects of your body and a body that is healthy in totality is totally healthy! Exercise can lower the risk of developing conditions that may negatively impact your eyes, such as diabetes. So keep moving to keep blinking!
Give Your Eyes Some Rest
It is hard to pry ourselves from the TV or phone screens; however, for proper eye health, giving your eyes a break from the consistent strain can help them in the long run. Though eye strain has not been linked to vision loss, repeated eye strain endured consistently can result in discomfort which ultimately can lead to redness and irritation. The general rule for eye breaks is the 20/20/20 rule which is, for every 20 minutes of screen time, or looking at anything up close, even reading a book, look about 20 feet away for 20 seconds.
