Never use hot water to wash your eyes. Close your eyes and sprinkle cold water on your lids for a few minutes. Doing this every morning before sunrise will help the eyes remain healthy.
Don`t strain your eyes. Blink often. Take a break from the book or computer screen and look into the distance, taking care to blink often. If you think your eyes are getting tired, rest them for a while.
Don`t expose your eyes to bright sunlight. Take care to shield your eyes with a cap or sunglasses.
Insufficient sleep also tells on the eye. Make sure you get your nine hours of the dreamless. It adds a sparkle to your eyes.
Drink adequate water. Eight glasses of water a day is a must.
Protect your eyes from air conditioners, fans and even strong winds. They all tend to dry out your eyes. This leads to other eye problems.
Believe it or not but constipation and stress do affect eyes adversely. Make sure you move your bowels everyday and do de-stress.
Eat carrots regularly. Greens help as well. A healthy diet is invaluable.
Keep your eyes clean and well rested.
