How To Take Better Care Of Your Eyes

Your eyes are an important part of your body and they deserve as much care as the rest of it. That means regular visits to the eye doctor, eating the right foods, keeping your eyes hydrated, and doing what you can to protect them from injury.

If you want to start taking care of your eyes, the windows to your soul, you need to know what it means to care for them. Here are some of the things that you can do to help keep your eyes healthier for longer.

Go To The Doctor

Aside from a sudden inevitability to see, the only way to really know that there is something wrong with your eyesight is to go to the eye doctor. The thing is, poor vision isn’t always just that you need a prescription, there could be something wrong with the inner workings of your eyes, or even in your brain. You can’t know if you don’t get it checked out.

When you schedule your yearly eye exam your optometrist will do a comprehensive exam that won’t just look at the outside of your eye or how well you see, they’ll also look behind your eye (yes, they can do that). The best way to prevent serious issue with your eyes, and take care of things that are sometimes unavoidable, like cataracts and macular degeneration, is to get your eyes examined regularly. Early detection could save your vision.

Eat Your Vegetables

There’s a reason your mom always told you to eat your vegetables, and it’s that they are full of vitamins and minerals that help keep your body healthy. They even help keep your eyesight healthy. While veggies aren’t going to give you 20/20 vision, they can help you keep from having certain eye ailments.

You’ve probably been told to eat your carrots, but there are some vegetables that are even better for you. They include leafy greens, like kale and spinach. To learn more about some of the foods that can help with your eyesight (and how) read this article.

Take Safety Precautions

One more way you should be taking care of your eyes is by keeping them safe. If your eyes are dry, use some eye drops. They need to be moist. If your eyes are chronically dry, talk to your eye doctor because there could be an underlying cause.

Even if you don’t do factory work, where you are required to wear safety glasses or goggles, there are other times when you might need them. If you are an artist of crafter that works on projects where wood, steel, or particles of any kind might be floating in the air and get in your eyes, you need to keep them covered!
