How to Care for Your Eyes in Three Simple Steps
Getting an Eye Massager is Helpful
When you are tired, whats your body looking for? You will be hoping for a therapeutic, stress-releasing massage. But, most of the time, you may not have enough time to go for it. Just like our body, our eyes also gets tired. As a matter of fact, it is perhaps one of the organs in our body that is usually overused, abused and neglected. Going for massage may not totally relieve it. In most cases, masseurs do not give more time massaging your eyes. Perhaps, you can request for it. I usually do that. Alternatively, get hold of an eye massager online and do it yourself. You will feel relieved in few minutes.
How do you relieve eye tiredness? Let me share with you what I do. I believe that these tips that I am going to shar with you are effective. Proof? I am always working on my tablet because I am a work at home mom (I earn though online means) but my eyes are healthy. I see many people at my age group using eyeglasses but I don't. My optometrist say that my eyes are healthy and I do not need glasses. I am near forty now - two years to wait, but I do not have problem with my vision.

What you can do if you cannot close your eyes and rest
Closing your eyes is obviously the best way to let your eyes rest but there are times that you simply can not. Take those times when you are beating a deadline, caring for a sick family member, traveling or chasing the time that every seconds matter - sleeping is a luxury you wish for then it turns into necessity but you simply cannot sleep.
If I am working near the computer, I take rests for my eyes frequently. Every about 10 to 20 minutes, I get my eyes off my screen, glance at a far object then shift to an object that is near. I do this two to three times. This does not take time, it will steal only few seconds of your time. Do not wait until your eyes become heavy and strained.
Apply this also when reading. No matter how focused you are in reading the noble you really want to finish reading, take time to rest for your eyes. When I was studying law, there were piles of books to read. Reading comprises almost 75% of my waking time whenever exam period are near. This rest also allows the brain to assimilate what you are reading more deeply than when you read continuously without rest.

It will relieve tiredness
Have you heard of this before? Apply hot compress to your eyes when you feel that you stressed it much. Damp a cloth with lukewarm water and put it on your eyes for few minutes before you sleep. The next morning, you will feel really relieved.
You may not need to do this if you buy the item featured above because it already has hot compression feature. Besides saving time preparing for a damp clothe which you soaked in a lukewarm water, simply use the massager. On top of saving your time, you will avoid the mess that you have to clean up for water spills.
Always wear Sunglasses when you're Under the Sun
Our eyes, just like our skin, are sensitive to sunlight. In as much as you wish to protect your skin from UB and UVB, you should also treat your eyes on the same way. Most of the time though, we overly protect our skin and we forget about protecting our eyes as well.
When choosing your sunglasses, think about protection; fashion comes second. I read from one magazine article that using simply tinted glasses will make more damage to the eyes compared to when you are not using sunglasses. Don't get confused. That's the reason why I emphasized on the need to choose your item. Make sure that it has the capacity to protect you from UV and other harmful rays and it is polarized. The concept detailed in that article that I read is that if you use a dark tinted glass, it will cause dilation which will allow more rays to penetrate through the eyes. Following that argument, if you use sunglasses that will not protect your eyes from harmful rays, you are actually entertaining more beam of light to penetrate. Polarized sunglasses reduces the effect of glare.
Does it make sense? Even if you think this is debatable, what about the damage that substandard glasses may cause? I'm not an eye health expert but I'd rather play safe by buying more expensive stuff if I feel it's safer to use. Credibility and reputation matters.

Fashion or Efficiency
When choosing sunglasses, most buyers consider fashion the primary factor to consider. It should be one that is trendy or one that their favorite Hollywood star wore recently or endorsed by a high profile celebrity. Wrong choice of sunglasses or eyeglasses may hurt our eyes. This should be taken into consideration seriously. I am not saying that it is bad to choose trendy options. There are trendy items that are at the same time efficient in protecting our eyes.
Features of Sunglasses
In your list, you already have there UVA and UVB blocking feature for sure. How about anti-glare? Look for the term "polarized" when you are shopping for sunglasses.
Photochromatic? Have you seen those glasses that looks like an ordinary eyeglasses but when under the sun, the glasses will turn dark and it will serve as sunglasses? With this, you do not need to have a reading glass and a separate piece of sunglasses.
Transition glasses. Oh, forget about this. My husband spent more than a thousand dollar for a transition glass which his optometrist say will give him better vision because it automatically calculates distance and adjust in order to have clear vision. The doctor even said that even for objects far from the vision field could be seen more clearly thus increasing the degree of the angle of what he could see. It did not work as described and he ended up giving back the expensive eyeglasses but got the reply that he could not have his money back. So he ended up choosing to avail of anti-glare, anti dust, photochromatic eyeglasses.
Lesson learned - not everything that appears to be a breakthrough is great.
