I’m sure most of you have already imagined how it would be like if you lose your sight – not being able to see
your face, see the beauty of nature, etc. I’m also sure that you will agree that it’s difficult and scary. Our eyes
are very precious because most of our activities, especially those concerning our health, require vision so it is
our responsibility to take good care of it. Here are ten easy ways to improve your eyesight.

1. Eat more fruits. Studies have shown that men and women who eat more fruits especially those rich in
antioxidants such as berries, were the least likely to develop age-related eye degeneration, the leading cause of
blindness to older people.

2. Choose red onions instead of white or yellow. Red onions contain high levels of an antioxidant called
quercetin that protects the eyes against cataracts.
3. Do not aim car vents at your eyes. Aiming your car vents at your eyes is a bad idea because the dry, air-
conditioned air will suck the moisture out of your eyes. Serious dryness of the eyes can lead to corneal
abrasions or even blindness.

4. Take your daily dose of multivitamins. If antioxidants can do wonders, vitamins and minerals can be as
beneficial as well. Studies have shown that men and women who have healthy doses of vitamin A and zinc are
less likely to develop cataracts than those who don’t.
5. Wear sunglasses. When going out into the sun, make sure that you wear sunglasses to protect your eyes
from the glare and damaging UV rays of the sun. If you can, wear a broad-brimmed hat together with your
sunglasses for extra protection. Not only it will protect your eyes, but it will also prevent the development of
wrinkles around it.

6. Reduce salt intake. Eating salty foods can increase your chances of developing cataracts. In addition, salty
foods can contribute to higher blood pressure – one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States.
7. Give your eyes a break. When you’re working or reading, try to make sure to give your eyes a break every
30 minutes. Look away from your computer monitor or book and look at something distant for at least 30
seconds. Try to do something else that doesn’t require a lot of eye-work for the next 30 minutes to prevent eye
fatigue and eyestrain.

8. Replace your makeup kit. For most women, makeup is part of a daily ritual. And most of the makeup is
used to beautify the eyes. But bacteria can accumulate in eye makeup over time which can be easily transferred
to your eyes and cause infection. Make sure to replace your mascara every three months and other makeup
once a year.
9. Observe proper eye hygiene. This is simply about making sure that you don’t put anything that is dirty in
contact with your eyes. If you wear contact lenses, make sure that your lenses and hands are clean before
putting it on or removing them. Make sure that your eye wear are clean before using them and always store
them in a clean place. Lastly, don’t rub your eyes when it’s itchy as this could lead to conjunctivitis or pink

10. Protect your eyes. When doing carpentry or yard work, make sure that you wear protective goggles to
prevent small debris from getting to your eyes. The debris can cause corneal abrasions or other serious injury
which can lead to blindness. Also, wear goggles when swimming to protect your eyes from the chlorine.
They say that the eyes are the window to the soul. And it is also a window at which we gaze upon so we can
enjoy the visual blessings of life. Learn how to appreciate the gift of vision and do your best to keep it.
