How to Take Care of Your Eyes

Updated on April 30, 2009

Natural Eye Care

Natural eye health is not difficult
One thing to remember is to wash your hands often
to avoid getting any bacteria into the eye where it causes infections.
Bacteria can cause such conditions such as pink eye or sties.

Proper nutrition is also very important. Two important
vitamins needed are vitamin A and C. Lack of vitamin A in particular
can cause severe problems including blindness. Eating a diet of fresh
fruits and vegetables is an easy thing to do that will bring
long term benefits to natural eye health.

Another way to protect your eyesis to refrain from smoking.
Studies show that as we age we are at risk
for cataracts and macular degeneration, a condition
where cells in the retina actually die.
Cigarette smoke is a direct cause of this
Getting regular eye exams, protecting your eyes from the sun, keeping
blood pressure and other medical conditions under control also assistin keeping your eyes healthy.


Eye exercises to reduce eye stress
can also be very helpful in the overall care of the eyes.
However, without attention to cleanliness, nutrition and general
health care, eye exercises will not help as much as they could.
For the best natural eye care, combine all of these to protect
your precious sight
