7 Simple Steps to Healthy eyes:
The first recommended step is, Wear Sunglasses. By wearing sunglasses patients block out the UV radiation. UV radiation due to sunlight exposure is a known culprit for both macular degeneration and pterygium.
Step Number two is known as The 20/20/20 Rule. After every 20 minutes of computer or other close work, look beyond 20 feet, for at least 20 seconds. This will relax the eye muscles and prevent a spasm. This will also allow, blinking, spreading tears, and avoiding dryness. According to NPR, (National Public Radio) More than two-thirds of working Americans use a computer at work, and 84% of them say it is essential for their jobs. By following this simple step Americans can help maintain quality eyesight, avoid dry eye and additional ophthalmology related issues.
Step number three, Wash your Eyes. At the end of the day, take a clean cup and fill it with cool water, then begin to wash your eyes with it. By doing so, this will wash away allergens from the eyes.
Step number four, Do not rub eyes. Rubbing can cause astigmatism, dryness, and scratches to the retina. This may also lead to a release of chemical mediators which will cause continual and more intensive itching. This step is especially stressed after undergoing any sort of eye procedure.
Step number five, a Vitamin A rich diet. This includes; almonds and yellow fruit such as, sweet potatoes, carrots, spinach and liver (pate). Doing so will help promote quality vision through an individual’s lifetime.
Step number six, Wear Eye protection. Before participating in yard work, drilling, welding, or other metal work, make sure to wear clear protective glasses. A growing number of on sight job accidents occur due to lack of proper eye ware. Make sure you have adequate protection before partaking in any hazardous, dusty, or intensive activity.
Step number seven, Exercise Regularly. There is nothing quite like getting oxygen to the eye, exercise stimulates all muscles including the eye muscles.
