Eye Care Tips

Eyes are one of the most important organs, which help in perceiving up to 80 percent of all major impressions. All important daily activities like reading, driving, exercising, working, etc. are done with the help of your eyes.

  • Good eye health starts with a healthy diet. A balanced diet not only helps you in staying healthy but provides you with nutrients like Omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamins C & E help ward off age related vision problems like macular degeneration and cataracts.

    A well – balanced healthy diet also keeps diabetes in check, which is a leading cause of preventable blindness.

  • Everyone needs a regular eye examination. Many vision problems can be detected during a routine vision screening. Regular and comprehensive eye check ups are a must for you and even for your children to ensure healthy eyes.

    Eye examinations can also detect eye problems like glaucoma, cataract, and diabetic retinopathy. Do not ignore changes in your vision and don’t let poor vision affect your child’s life.

  • Exercise can prevent degeneration of the macula (present in the center of the retina in your eyes), which typically occurs around the age of 60.

  • Minimize your screen time to avoid straining your eyes and use lubricating eye drops to prevent dry eyes. Blink more often to moisturize the eyes, to prevent irritation and dry eyes. Look away from the screen at least every 20 minutes and gaze at a distant object. This will help in reducing the fatigue and relaxes the eye muscles.

Use proper sunglasses to protect your eyes from harmful ultra violet rays of the sun.
