Tips for Healthy Eyes

Tips for Healthy Eyes

Sep 24, 2022 Alex Brecher

Are you interested in supporting healthy vision for as long as you can? Who wouldn’t be?! But did you know that it’s not just a question of luck? There are plenty of steps you can take to keep your eyes as healthy as possible for as long as possible. Here are 7 tips.

  • Visit an eye doctor.
  • An eye exam can save your vision. An eye doctor can detect vision problems and write you a prescription for glasses or contact lenses, but you should go regularly to an eye doctor even if you don’t need glasses. That’s because an eye exam can also detect problems early, when they are treatable. For example, a change in eye pressure can detect glaucoma, which can be treated when caught early.

  • Eat your veggies.
  • And other healthy foods. That’s because they are sources of essential nutrients for healthy eyes. Antioxidants such as vitamins A, C, and E, as well as omega-3 fats, zinc, and lutein, are all thought to be related to healthy eye cells and vision.* That means eating a diet rich in vegetables, fruit, fish, whole grains, and nuts. At the same time, it doesn’t hurt to eat less 

  • Use the Eye Health Vitamin Patch.*
  • It’s not always possible to get high amounts of all eye-related nutrients each day from the foods you choose. The Eye Health Vitamin Patch by PatchAid is teeming with antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E, selenium, lutein, zeaxanthin, lycopene, and astaxanthin. It’s also got omega-3 fats, carrot powder, and zinc. Ask your healthcare provider if it may be a good idea for you to use the Eye Health Vitamin Patch.

  • Rest your eyes.
  • Do you spend hours a day staring at a computer screen or a phone screen? That can strain your eyes and eventually cause blurry vision, headaches, or a decreased ability for your eyes to focus. 

    These are some tips for giving your eyes a break.

    • Look up from the screen every 15 to 20 minutes and look outside or at a distant wall. If you have trouble forgetting, set a repeating timer to remind you.
    • Avoid glare. Cover windows if they’re putting a glare on your screen.
    • Use an anti glare screen.
    • Make the font big enough to see easily.
  • Stop smoking. 
  • Among other things, smoking places oxidative stress on your eyes and can cause cellular damage and cataracts. If you do smoke, ask your healthcare provider about resources for quitting.

  • Wear sunglasses when you’re outside.
  • Dark sunglasses let your eyes relax instead of strain when the light is bright, but that’s not all. The right sunglasses also come with a protective coating that blocks UV rays from getting to your eyes and causing damage. Be sure to wear sunglasses not only in summer, but also in winter when the sunlight may be reflecting off of the snow. 

    Your eyes are precious. Protect them as much as you can with a healthy lifestyle, regular eye exams, and the nutrients you need for eye health. The Eye Health Vitamin Patch by PatchAid is specifically formulated to contain eye-essential nutrients. Ask your doctor if it may be right for you.
