#LoveYourEyes is something we all need to do every day.
Take a look at these simple tips to give some tender loving care to your eyes. How many of these are you already doing in your daily life?
1. Give your eyes a break by following the 20/20/20 rule. Every 20 minutes, take a 20-second break to look at something 20 feet away from your screen. This helps prevent eye strain and headaches.
2. Spend time outdoors to promote healthy eye development. Children should aim for at least two hours of outdoor time each day to reduce the risk of nearsightedness.
3. Protect your eyes from the sun by wearing sunglasses that offer UVA and UVB protection. This prevents sun radiation from damaging your eyes.
4. If you require prescription glasses, wear them consistently to maintain clear vision and prevent eye strain and headaches.
5. Check the expiration dates on your eye makeup and regularly replace brushes to avoid eye infections caused by bacteria buildup.
6. Engage in regular exercise to reduce the risk of conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure, which can impact your eyesight.
7. Maintain a healthy diet to support optimal eye health. A balanced diet provides essential vitamins and minerals for your eyes.
8. Quit smoking to lower the risk of serious eye conditions and permanent vision loss.
9. Schedule regular eye tests to detect any potential problems before they affect your vision. Even if you believe your eyes are fine, it's important to book an eye test.
10. Prioritize your eye health by setting reminders in your calendar for regular eye check-ups. Aim to have your eyes examined every 1-2 years to ensure their longevity.
