In today’s world, lives are very hectic. There is lot of stress involved and individuals strain themselves too much. Often, eyes become red and sometimes, the vision is hazy. It is because people do not follow proper eye care practices. To live a healthy life, having healthy eyes is the key foundation. Below are some tips for eye care:

Do not use eye make-up, which is expired. If one uses the products of eye make-up, which has crossed the expiry date or even uses in the combination with other products, then there is high risk of having eye infection. Specially, products like eyeliner, mascara and foundation, which usually go out of date faster than other commodities.

Gazing at the computer screen for long time is not a good habit. If you stare at the screen for more time, be it computer or television, then your cornea will be damaged. If you take a break, then you can avoid headaches, dry eyes and blurry vision. Keeping the monitor fingerprint and dust free will decrease clarity and reduce strain.

Drinking ample amount of water is good for health. If you drink at least 2 litres of water, then you can reduce the dryness in you eyes and balance the moisture in the eyes.

If you work in an air condition office, then your eyes will dry very easily. Going out and taking some fresh air will help you and you will not feel itchy and uncomfortable.

Always sit at least 50-60 cm away from the computer screen. Keeping more distance from the computer screen will protect your eyes and keep in mind that the monitor has no reflecting light.

Do not rub or pat your eyes more. If you think that there is some thing stuck in your eyes, then rubbing your eyes with fingers is not the right solution. The solution is to haul up the upper lid and smoothly pull the eyelid down and swathe the lower eyelashes. This will result in tears and thus, washing the dust and the outside particles from your eyes. If you wear leans, then you should first takeout the lens, clean them and then do the above process.

Wear eyewear of standard quality. If you go out in sun often, then always wear sunglasses. It will protect your eyes from the harmful ultraviolet rays. If you wear spectacles, then keep in mind, they are of good quality.

Eat healthy food. Have a healthy diet, which is full of vitamins, minerals and high amount of antioxidants. Eating foods like nuts, leafy green vegetables and fish is a good idea.
