At the Cornea Consultants of Arizona, we know how important your eyes are and how absolutely critical it is to keep your eyes healthy so that eye diseases and other conditions are prevented. We also know that you won’t always have time for a check up with your eye doctor. So, we have put together a list of things that you can do at home, on your own time, to help keep your eyes in good shape.

  1. Eat healthy. Eating the right kind of food like vegetables that are packed with beta-carotene are very helpful in keeping your eyes healthy because this antioxidant reduces the possibility of the deterioration of your visual acuity.
  2. Using contact lenses and glasses is fine, but do not wear them for more than the required time because, in contrast to their indication, this may cause permanent damage to your vision.
  3. Prevent puffy eyes when you wake up by pressing cold slices of cucumber against your eyelids for about 10 minutes before going to sleep at night to prevent water retention.
  4. Choose polarized lenses when buying eyewear to save your eyes from prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays
  5. Avoid using eye drops frequently because although they relieve itchiness and swelling of the eyes due to allergies, they cut off their oxygen supply as well
  6. Try to reduce prolonged and unnecessary exposure to computer screens to prevent straining and drying out your eyes.
  7. Use protective eyewear whenever necessary to keep debris from getting into the eyes.
  8. Find time to exercise your eyes to promote relaxation and relieve stress
  9. Do not read under low lighting to prevent eye strain
  10. Do not look directly into a light source because this a potential cause of eye damage.
