Caring For Your Eyes

 

Our eyes are used constantly - every moment we are awake - and even remain active when we are asleep.

It's no wonder then that our eyes get tired, dry, irritated and scratchy at times.

So here are a few tips to keep your eyes in good shape:

  1. Keep your eyes hydrated - drink at least eight 200ml glasses of water a day and make your world more humid. Don't overdo the portable dehumidifier in your home. Try wearing a wet gauze eye mask while sleeping on aeroplances. This keeps eyes moist and prevents tear evaporation.
  2. Watch for side effects from medication - certain prescription and over-the-counter medications, such as antihistamines, diuretics, sleeping pills, beta-blockers, and pain relievers, can reduce your body's ability to create lubricating tears. Either ask for alternative medications or use lubricating eye drops.
  3. Wear sunglasses - protecting your eyes from harsh UV light and also helps keep eyes moist by preventing tear evaporation. Wrap-around sunglasses are best for minimizing the wind's drying effect.
  4. Rest your eyes regularly - especially if you are using a computer all day. Simply looking away from the screen and looking at something in the distance helps the muscles of the eyes to stay toned and eyes lubricated. Take at least one 10-minute break every 2 hours. Blinking frequently can help distribute lubricating tears evenly throughout your eyes.
  5. Get a good nights sleep - when you are sleeping your retinal membranes recharge.
  6. Eat Eye Nourishing Food or Take a Supplement - you eyes need:
  • Vitamin C - fruit and vegetables contain vitamin C and other bioflavonoids helping to prevent eye conditions.
  • Glutathione - A daily 500-milligram supplement may help you avoid cataracts. Glutathione can be found in eggs, garlic, avocados, asparagus, and onions.
  • Lutein - found in corn and green leafy vegetables or take it in supplement form at 6 to 30 milligrams daily.
  • Zeaxanthin

Dry eyes can on occassions be caused by a lack of vitamin A. Vitamin A-rich foods include carrots, sweet potatoes, cantaloupe, pumpkin, and mango.

If you already have age-related macular degeneration, try:

  • 500 milligrams of vitamin C,
  • 400 international units of vitamin E,
  • 15 milligrams of beta carotene,
  • 30 milligrams of zinc, and
  • 2 milligrams of copper

Take every day, in divided doses.
