4 Ways to Have Healthy Eyes

There are some habits you can incorporate into your life that will help you have healthy eyes. If you already have healthy eyes, there is no better way to keep them that way than by adopting a healthy lifestyle. The bonus is that many of the things you can do to keep your eyes healthy will benefit your overall health as well! Below I’ve listed some of the best ways to have healthy eyes and avoid eye surgery.

1

Eat Greens

Eat Greens

Most leafy vegetables like spinach, collard greens and kale will help you to avoid macular degeneration. The macula is important to the overall quality of the eye because it is in the back of the eye that enables us to see fine details. When the macula doesn’t work, there is blurriness or darkness in the center of our vision. To avoid eye surgery in Utah, eat your veggies!

3

Wear Sunglasses

Wear Sunglasses

Ultra-violet filtering sunglasses will help prevent your eyes from developing cataracts. Cataracts can be removed through eye surgery, but preventing them in the first place is even more effective.

4

Eat Fruit

Eat Fruit

Eating plenty of apricots and blueberries will help keep your eyes in good health and make sure you avoid those pesky Utah eye surgery clinics. Blueberries are associated with reduction of eye fatigue and apricots are rich in beta carotene and lycopene, both of which promote good vision.

2

Stay Hydrated

Stay Hydrated

Drinking water is important, but keeping your eyes hydrated is even more important. If you feel like you experience “dry eye” frequently, talk to your doctor about a simple saline solution; which can soothe your eyes and prevent you from visiting a Utah eye surgery clinic.
