Eyes are the windows to one’s soul. So, proper care of eyes should be taken in order to protect one’s eyes from damage.

If you suffer from short or far sightedness and need glasses then it should be done even more regularly. An eye doctor helps to give you proper eye glass power so that you do not use wrong power glasses for a long time. Regular check up also helps you to know about the heath of your eyes.

Working on computers or staring at computer screens for a long time can damage your eyes. You may develop eye power as well as suffer from dry eyes, eye irritation and itching. In order to get rid of the problem, try not to stare at the computer screen for more than 20 minutes continuously. After 20 minutes, try looking around in order to relieve your eyes from the pressure. Use an anti-glare screen on your computer in order to lessen the harmful effects. Another thing that doctors would tell you to do is to use a good sunglasses when you go out into the sun. A good sunglass that has UVA and UVB protection helps you to relieve your eyes from the harmful rays of the sun which is responsible for many eye problems.
Other than all this a good lifestyle is another primary factor that helps you to maintain the health of your eyes. Eat a good balanced diet full of green and yellow vegetables and fish. This nutrition helps to maintain the health of your eyes. Other than that you should quit smoking as smoking is also a major factor behind the degeneration of the eye muscles. You will also need to sleep daily for at least 8 hours per day in order to give to your eyes the much-needed rest on a daily basis. Use eye drops daily if you work on the computer for a long time. Eye drops sooth your eyes and help you to get relief from excessive eye problems. Wash your eyes at least 3 times a day with cold water in order to cleanse your eyes. If you use eye makeup then you should remove any traces of the makeup before going off to sleep. Remove your contact lenses too before going to sleep.
