      Top tricks to keep your eyes sharp

      Our eyes are the window to the world and its very important to properly care for them. Here we have a collection of tips from the experts to help you keep your eyes healthy and sparkling.

      Wear sunglasses

      Whenever you are out, remember to wear sunglasses. UV radiation is as bad for your eyes as your skin. These rays can result in cataracts, cornea burns, and even cancer of the eyelid.  Snow, water, sand, and concrete are different surfaces that reflect UV rays.

      Stay safe at work or play

      If you are playing a sport, protect your eyes with protective eye gear preferably lens made of polycarbonate plastic, a material that is 10 times more impact resistant than the rest. Sports that are prone to the most injuries are baseball, softball, racket sports, lacrosse, and basketball. When you are working on something at home or work that is likely to have debris flying or splash hazardous chemicals, ensure you wear safety glasses.

      Nutrition for the eyes

      Vitamin A is very good for the eyes, go for foods that are rich in beta-carotene such as carrots. Add plenty of citrus fruits, dark leafy greens, and whole grains to your diet. Foods rich in zinc such as peanuts, oysters, lean red meat, beans, peas, and poultry are good for the eyes.

      Health conditions

      Do not ignore any eye problems such as itchiness, redness, dryness, watering and so on. Consult a doctor. There are certain health conditions totally unrelated to your eyes that may impact them. For instance, high blood pressure and diabetes are known to cut down blood flow to the eyes. Besides these immune system disorders in the lungs, thyroid glands, or elsewhere can make the eyes swell. Other conditions to watch out for are multiple sclerosis, aneurysms, and cancer.

      Regular eye exams

      Even if you do not have to wear glasses, make sure that you go in for regular eye exams. Eye exams must be taken every second year from ages 18-60. It must be done every year post 60, if you wear glasses or  contact lenses, or suffer from issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or have a family history of eye disease.

      Quit smoking

      Smoking is quite bad for the eyes as it leads to rapid macular degeneration and increases the risk of developing cataracts. It can also damage the retina and cause vision loss.
