Here Are Simple Yet Effective 8 Habits That Can Improve Your Vision
To see the world is a blessing.
The eyes are the most important sensory organs that help you experience and develop senses and feel without touch. But diminished eyesight does not have to be an inevitable part of living long. The most common diseases—age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), cataracts, glaucoma, and dry eye disease—are all preventable to some extent. Follow these few steps/habits that can improve your visions, leading to a healthier eyesight!
1) Bilberry Jam
Spread bilberry jam on your morning toast or take a bilberry supplement every morning. The berries contain compounds called anthocyanosides, which may protect the retina against macular degeneration.
2) Be the sailor man
You need to have spinach twice a week! It could be a spinach quiche, steamed spinach, or maybe Tuscan spinach—sautéed in some olive oil with garlic and raisins. Regardless, be sure to get your spinach.
3) Switch to red onions
Red onions rather than the yellow ones contain far more quercetin, an antioxidant that is thought to protect against cataracts.
4) Eye level
Move your computer/ laptop screen to just below eye level. Your eyes will close slightly when you’re staring at the computer, minimizing fluid evaporation and the risk of dry eye syndrome.
5) Berries in breakfast are IMPORTANT
Blueberries are one of the richest fruit forms of antioxidants. A study found that women and men who ate the greatest amount of fruit were the least likely to develop age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), the leading cause of blindness in older people.
6) Go fishing
Those who eat the least amount of have the highest risk of dry eye syndrome. Even tuna fish (yes, the kind that comes in a can) protects against the syndrome. If you can’t stand fish or are worried about mercury consumption, try fish-oil supplements.
7) Less heat
TURN DOWN THE HEAT! Heat dries out the air, which, in turn, dries out your eyes. In the winter, you might also try adding some humidity with a humidifier or even bunching a lot of plants together in the room in which you spend the most time.
Whenever you got out in sun, protect your eyes by wearing sunglasses. Not to look cool but to actually protect your eyes from the harsh glare of the sun and its damaging UV rays. Wear the sunglasses even when it’s not sunny out.
