Why and how to take care of your eyes

care of your eyes

Eye care begins with thorough cleaning

You may be caught off guard and particularly embarrassed when an eyelash or dust unexpectedly irritates your eye. Often the instinctive reaction is to rub the eye or try to remove the foreign body. Unfortunately, this usually causes more irritation and can be a source of inflammation.

The particle may lodge deeper in the eye, or bacteria on your hands may cause an infection.

Your eyes are constantly in demand during the day. From playing files to driving long distances, a lot of situations appeal to your eyes. Pollutants and irritants in the air, or even on your fingers, can also affect your eyes. It is therefore important to remember to moisturize your eyes during the day, in order to relieve feelings of irritation and dry eyes.

Consult your ophthalmologist regularly

An eye exam not only checks your eyesight, but also detects early signs of disease (glaucoma or age-related macular degeneration).

To take care of your eyes, get enough sleep

Dry eyes  are among the most common problems, and are even more common in older people [2] . The eyes become dry when they do not produce enough tears, or the lipid layer on the surface of the eyes is damaged, allowing the natural water content present in the tears to evaporate .

While sleeping , we take care of our eyes because we allow them to rest [4] . Throughout the day, the muscles of our eyes work constantly: when we sleep, their movements are limited and they are sheltered from air and light, which allows them to rest. Lack of sleep can strain your eyes (and make you look tired!), showing signs of irritation or making your eyes look puffy.

Eat with your eyes

A diet rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, zinc and vitamin C helps keep your eyes healthy [6] . So the next time your eyes fall on a delicious grilled salmon, a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice or even a plate of kale (the latest vegetable craze), you can succumb knowing that it will help take care of your eyes . [7]

You’ll also be happy to know that there’s some truth to the old legend that carrots are good for the eyes. The vitamin A content of carrots has been proven to help maintain good eyesight [8] . But vitamin A is also found in milk, eggs or liver…

Visiting an ophthalmologist regularly can also detect early signs of deterioration of sight or eye disease.

Small daily habits, such as eating or sleeping, therefore have an impact on the health of our eyes. So don’t wait any longer and take care of your eyes every day!

The screens

Avoid staying too long in front of a screen before going to sleep, especially in bed. The light that the screen emits can affect your sleep and reduce your ability to fall asleep[2]. Additionally, prolonged screen exposure can trigger dry eyes, so devote some time to activities that don’t require screen time.

* an alteration of the lipid layer of the tear film is the cause of 80% of cases of dry eye.
