Eyes are given to man not only for beauty. With the help of this organ, a person is able to distinguish colors, navigate in space; in a word – to see. But with the transition to the information age and the advent of computers, keeping vision in good condition is becoming more and more difficult. How, then, to avoid wearing glasses and lenses?
More vegetables and berries
Carrots, for example, contain the so-called “beta-carotenes”, which in the human body turn into vitamin A. Remember biology lessons in grade 9 – this vitamin is involved in the formation of the main visual pigment (rhodopsin). But do not abuse carrots – its excess can lead to visual impairment. At the end of the article will be a more extensive list of products that are useful for vision.
Nicotine = poison
Do you smoke? It is time to give up this bad habit. Nicotine contained in cigarettes is able to involuntarily expand and narrow the vessels in your body, which leads to poor blood supply. And for the eyes, this is critical.
Gymnastics is not just for the body…
… but also for the eyes. Yes, it’s worth taking a gymnasium for the eyes five-ten minutes a day and your vision will improve markedly. Do not neglect this seemingly childish activity. It stimulates the blood circulation of your eyes, and also relieves them of fatigue. Let’s prove it right now! Try the following exercises:
- Rotate your eyes in a circle, eyelids down
- Find a point on the ceiling, on the wall on the right and left, on the floor. Perform circular head rotations, moving your gaze from one point to another
- Close your eyes for 15-20 seconds
Feel the freshness in your eyes? Excellent! Then go to the next item.
Keep track of time
Computers, phones, tablets are already inextricably embedded in our lives. And everyone knows their negative impact on vision. However, if the eyes just get tired of the screens, this is not critical. All you need is a 15-minute rest from the monitor (during which you can just do gymnastics for the eyes).
Do you think you are too busy / old for outdoor walks? Well, in vain! Fresh air in nature is useful for the whole organism. Of course, you should not walk the streets if your city is very polluted. But at least once a month you should go on the nature. A big noisy company, in a family circle or alone, in the silence of the forest – it all depends on you. But for sight such pastime will be extremely useful!
Watch out for the ultraviolet light
Walking in a park, city or being on the beach, your eyes should be protected from the sun. Do not forget to wear quality sunglasses!
In the end, we can only add that no matter how beautiful your eyes are, you should take care of them. Follow the rules above and your eyesight will never let you down!
