Caring for your vision doesn’t begin and end with glasses, sunglasses, contact lenses, and lasik surgery. There are many things you can do to protect your eyes. Studies have shown that a diet high in the nutrients lutein and zeaxanthin found in most vegetables, especially dark leafy vegetables, can help prevent sight-robbing diseases like macular degeneration and cataracts.
Eye diseases like glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy, visual trauma and cuts to the eye, often result in permanent vision loss. Fortunately, many of these injuries are preventable. Regular use of eye protection glasses on the job or working around the house, suitable sunglasses when outdoors or playing sports can prevent up to 90% of eye injuries and trauma. Always be safe and think first.
If you feel the action you are about to take can damage your eyes or any part of your body, rather stop and try an alternative method or wear protective clothing and eye gear.
