Do not take your eyes for granted. The following tips will help you keep them healthy and improve your eyesight.

Take care of your eyes:

Do not we say that we are attached to something like the apple of our eyes? And yet, we hold these precious organs for granted and do not take care of them until the day our sight suffers. Here are 17 tips for maintaining your health.

1. Take fish twice a week

Fish is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids that have been shown to lower the risk of developing dry eye syndrome. If you can not stand the fish, take fish oil supplements.

2. Wear protective goggles

Wear protective goggles when swimming or carpentry. Properly fitted, the swimming goggles will protect your eyes from chlorine while the construction goggles will prevent abrasions of the cornea by debris of materials.

3. Avoid dry air

Direct the vents of your car towards your feet rather than your face. Dry air conditioning absorbs moisture from the eyes like a sponge. If it is severe, the dryness of the eye can lead to abrasions of the cornea and, at worst, blindness.

4. Go for the red onion

Take it preferably yellow. It contains more quercetin, an antioxidant that is thought to protect against cataracts.

5. Wear sunglasses

Wear them every time you go out. Not only will they block the dazzling glare of the sun but they will protect your eyes from the drying effects of the wind.

6. Eat sweet potato

Consume sweet potato as often as possible. Rich in vitamin A, this tuber helps improve night vision.

7. Clean them

Make your eyes clear every night, eliminating the risk of makeup particles in your eyes and scratching the cornea.

8. Take a supplement

Take a blueberry supplement every morning. This small, closely related blueberry fruit contains anthocyanosides, compounds that protect the retina against macular degeneration. It is found in pharmacies.

9. Do not share your towels

Use a clean towel every time you wipe your face and share your towels with no one else; This will limit your risk of getting conjunctivitis, a very contagious eye disease.

10. Make sun screen

In addition to your sunglasses, wear a hat with a wide brim or visor. It will block about 50% of the ultraviolet radiation and prevent it from touching your eyes from the top or sides of your glasses.
