4 Basic Ways of Protecting your Eyes

If you love your eyes, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t take good care of them. If you’re wearing contact lenses for eye protection, then you definitely know how to take good care of those pairs we use to enjoy the beauty of our world. In addition, here are 3 basic ways to take care of our eyes.

Eat for good vision

Nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, lutein, zinc and vitamins C and E are derived from eating foods like tuna, salmon and other oily fishes, green and leafy vegetables like spinach, kale and nutrients-rich eggs and other non-meat and citrus fruits like oranges. Eating balanced meals also helps in getting the nutrients needed in promoting good vision and eye protection. Eating for good vision is a good way just like wearing contact lenses to protect eyes from infection caused by viruses and bacteria.

Don’t smoke

Smoking is a proven cause of eye diseases like cataracts, macular degeneration and optic nerve damage. Many health fact sheets point to smoking as a big risk for age-related eye diseases macular degeneration. People found to have macular degeneration disease are more likely to have double or higher risks to suffer stroke and heart attacks.

People engaged in such activities are recommended to wear eye protection to prevent damage or contaminations from chemical and glares. These eye shields are different from regular eyewear as these are made from materials specifically for protecting the eyes. This protective eyewear has prescription lenses that are much thicker than usual eyewear. Manufacturers follow strict standards on materials used for the lenses and must meet quality standard as protective eye wear. Examples of this protective eyewear are goggles.

Consulting the right eye doctor for eye diseases

Ophthalmologists can diagnose and prescribe medications for eye diseases and gives total eye care. Optometrists are responsible for vision care and eye care services. They prescribe and fit eyeglasses and contact lenses for people with vision problems. A special branch of optometry is responsible in Overnight Vision Correction, Corneal Refractive therapy and the creation of gas permeable lenses prescribed for myopia, astigmatism and farsightedness called as orthokeratology. On the other hand, Opticians are not doctors but fill in eye doctor’s prescription for lenses and frames. Consulting the right doctors save you from waste of money, time and wrong diagnosis.

Protect your eyes and have a lifetime enjoyment of seeing the beauty around us.
