Five Healthcare Tips For Your Eyes


Just imagine going blind after having a vision all your life? It’s impossible, right? Well, eyes play a significant role and caring for them cant is therefore equally important. Most people are aware that they are making their eyes hurt. In simple terms, eye care is a subject that most people shy to mention. If you have healthy eyes, then other areas of your body will also be healthy. Here are five health care tips for your eyes to help you keep your vision secure.

Eye care and health tips

Find out about your family history


Some families have a history of being prone to eye disease and understanding your family history can help you a lot. For instance, if you have a genetic eye disorder, knowing about your family history will allow for it to be diagnosed and treated in time before it causes severe irreparable harm. Getting the disease looked at sooner is better as more treatment options will be available. So it’s important to find out from your family members if any of them have had eye illnesses.


Shield your eyes from the PC

Advancements in technology have made life to change predominantly in the last few decades, with most tasks being done using a laptop or PC. This means that eye protection is a matter that can’t be taken lightly. Today most people tend to spend a huge fraction of their time on the PC hence their eyes are put to danger. Eye care experts recommend that you should let your eyes rest after using the computer for a few hours to reduce the chances of straining and vision blurring problems. Resting involves closing your eyes for half an hour or longer and lubricating or moisturizing them at the same time.

Put on sun glasses

Most people have always believed that wearing sunglasses for extended periods affects the eyes severely. This is false. Always wear your sunglasses since doing so will protect your eyes from the harmful UV rays. Exposure to ultra violet rays for long durations is the primary cause of cataracts or macular degeneration. For greatest protection, choose sunglasses that have been designed to block both UVB and UVA rays. For most protection also choose wraparound sunglasses. Without any doubt, good sunglasses will offer your eyes protection that is second to none.

Visit your doctor for check-ups regularly

It is worth noting that you should pay your doctor a visit for regular eye checkups. Getting problems with your eyes looked at immediately is the first step to ensuring optimal eye health. However, some conditions can’t be detected until it’s too late. That is why regular eye checkups are strongly recommended. You can discover an eye problem at an earlier stage and get it treated immediately.

So always remember to remove your lenses each night and soak them inside a disinfectant. Moreover, while putting them on, be cautious to avoid touching them with dirty hands. And that is not all. Keep them in a clean case.

The Gail Devers Foundation has partnered with the Gwinnett County Parks and Recreation. This years’ Walk for Health will emphasize Health and Youth Wellness. The concept for Walk For Health was formed after Devers’ personal battle with Graves Disease, a debilitating chronic Thyroid Disorder. “At first I blamed my condition on the pressures of Olympic training,” says Devers. “It was 2 ˝-3 years before being diagnosed… that was senseless; there wasn’t enough information out there. No one gets anywhere by themselves. Since I cannot knock on every door, I had to design another avenue for getting the word out. You have one body, one life to live and you deserve the best quality of care possible”.
