Even if you work outdoors hot sun, wind, dry conditions and dust can irritate eyes.
There are many areas where our eyes are vulnerable.
The good news is there are simple steps we can take to help our eyes.
7 Simple Things you can easily do to care for your Eyes.
1. Get your eyes checked regularly. Eye Professionals suggest having eyes checked every 2 years, especially after you turn 40.
2. Drink more water to hydrate your eyes as well as your body.
3. Blink or rest your eyes more frequently, especially while reading, watching television or when using the computer. Blinking helps prevent evaporation of the tear film that protects the eyes.
4. Change your focus periodically while reading, doing close work such as sewing, while watching television or working at the computer. When driving for long stretches alternate between close and distant objects for less eye fatigue. Changing focus by looking at another object a distance away helps your eye muscles and helps prevent eyestrain.
5. Eat a balanced healthy diet with plenty of fresh red, yellow and orange fruit and vegetables that are especially high in Vitamins necessary for good eye health. Eating dairy foods, nuts, whole grains, fish and fish oil, lean meat and liver seems to be more effective than nutritional supplements. ** NB. Overuse of some vitamin supplements in addition to these foods, may result in toxicity. Ask a professional for advice.
6. Wear sunglasses outdoors in bright sunshine, also when there is glare from the sun or snow and on a windy day. Wrap around glasses are particularly good. ** NB. Always avoid looking directly into the sun, especially through binoculars etc.
7. Wear protective eyewear or goggles when in the workshop or when cutting the grass, edge trimming, tree trimming etc and also when doing any activity at home or work where there is flying debris.
