Five Steps to Healthier Eyes

Step one – Vitamins

Vitamin A helps improve night vision and can be found in green leafy vegetables, carrots, spinach, eggs and cheeses. Vitamin B complex is good for reducing redness around the eyes and helps eyes that are sensitive to light. Vitamin B complexes can be found in bananas, liver, pastas, breads, milk and mushrooms. Finally, carotene, found in carrots, broccoli, cabbage and peas, can help the formation of visual purples in the eyes, which helps improve weak eyes and reduce strain.

Step two – Exercise

Naturally, exercise makes for a healthier you. In relation to healthy eyes, prolonged exercise dilates your arteries and rushes fresh blood and oxygen to your eyes. Daily exercise brings much needed nutrients, oxygen and hydration to the eyes and can help fight stress and depression, which both target your eyes.

Step three – Foods for your eyes

One of the best foods for your eyes is Blueberry. Drinking blueberry juice often helps to increase night vision and decrease damage from straining. Likewise, carrots or carrot juice helps improve weak eyes. Wiping green tea bags under your eyes helps them relax while drinking green tea helps deter cataracts.

Step four – Be wise about your eyes

When outdoors, even on cloudy days, wear sunglasses that have UV protection. This keeps your eyes from straining under harsh light and protects your retinas from damage. Similarly, avoid looking at any one object (aka- a computer screen or TV) for prolonged periods. If you have a desk job, make sure you spend at least 5 minutes an hour looking away from your screen and exercising your eyes.

Step five – Sunglasses/eyewear

Don’t skimp on eyewear. Buy glasses that fit your face comfortably and get your prescription updates yearly. Do not wear anyone else’s glasses. If you are outdoors often get prescription sunglasses. -Dezan Shira & Associates
