- Eat Well-Good eye health starts with the food on your plate. Nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, lutein, zinc, and vitamins C and E might help ward off age.
- Quit Smoking-It makes you more likely to get cataracts, damage to your optic nerve, and macular degeneration, among many other medical problems.
- Wear Sunglasses-The right pair of shades will help protect your eyes from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. Too much UV exposure boosts your chances of cataracts and macular degeneration.
- Computer/laptop use-Make sure your glasses or contacts prescription is up to date and good for looking at a computer screen. Move the screen so your eyes are level with the top of the monitor.
- Visit Your Eye Doctor regularly-Everyone needs a regular eye exam, even young children. It helps protect your sight and lets you see your best.
