Simple Ways to Start Improving The Health of Your Eyes

Unfortunately, more than 20 million American adults have experienced eye disease, visual impairment, and even blindness. Discover the simple ways that you can start improving the health of your eyes today.  

Go for a Walk

It’s common knowledge that just thirty minutes of physical exercise a day can benefit your heart, but did you know that it can offer several eye health advantages as well? The truth is, many eye diseases are linked to other health problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol and auto-immune diseases. Not only does exercise reduce the effects of these common health issues, but it alleviates the symptoms associated with the eyes.

Wear Sunglasses

The summer isn’t over yet. Protect your eyes from harmful UV rays by wearing sunglasses whenever you’re outside. Did you know that UV exposure is responsible for an estimated 5 to 10 percent of cataract cases? When purchasing sunglasses, ensure that the label reads “100 perfect UV protection”.

Next week, Americans in some parts of the country will experience a total solar eclipse. If you’re planning to view the eclipse safely, purchase protective eye wear.

Eat Your Veggies

Carrots aren’t the only vegetable that is good for you eye sight. You can add a variety of healthy foods to your diet, as long as they’re rich in lutein and zeaxanthin. These antioxidants are typically found in dark, leafy greens such as kale or spinach.
