What bad habits do harm to my vision?
• Not Wearing Your Sunglasses
Sun's harmful UV and high-energy visible (HEV) rays can prematurely age and damage your eyes and eyelids. To protect your eyes, make sure you wear sunglasses to block the sun's UV rays when outside the door.
Smoking harms almost every part of your body, including your eyes. Studies have linked smoking to eye diseases. The good news is that quitting, no matter how old you are, can help reduce the risk of developing a severe eye condition.
• Rubbing Your Eyes
The skin around your eyes is very delicate. Rubbing your eyes can break the tiny blood vessels that are under the skin's surface. Regular eye rubbing over an extended time can lead to Keratoconus, which causes a thinning of the cornea and results in the cornea losing its shape.
• Not Getting Enough Sleep
Not getting enough rest can cause red eyes and dark circles, eye twitches, dry eyes, and blurry vision. It cannot only affect your vision but your overall health as well.
• Not Eating Properly
Colorful fruits and vegetables have essential vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids contributing to your optimum eye health.
• Not Drinking Enough Water
Drinking little water and eating a high-sodium diet every day can cause your body dehydrated. It will result in dry eyes, red eyes, and puffy eyelids.
• Not Having Regular Eye Exams
Comprehensive eye exams can detect vision problems, eye diseases before you even realize that they exist. Regular eye exams are necessary even though for those who don't have vision issues.
