To keep your eye sight in good condition for many years to come:

Tip 1: Regular eye exam

Even if you are not aware of any problems you should have your eyes tested every 2 years. The eye test is a regular health check, which can detect underlying health problems as well as changes in your vision. It may need to be more frequent depending on you age and medical history. Your Optometrist will normally recommend you when you should return for your next Eye test and usually they will send a reminder letter to you.

Tip 2: Good reading habits

First, go to a well-lit place to avoid eye strain. In fact, most of the short- and long-term vision problems associated with reading are due to the wrong practice of viewing books in  Visiclear places that lack proper illumination. Also, if you have been staring at a book for quite some time, give your eyes a rest by closing them for a while or looking at a wonderful bit of scenery.

Tip 3: Recommended vaccinations

Vaccinations for babies, especially when traveling overseas where there are a lot of diseases around

Tip 4: Very importantly, a proper diet

Make sure you getting enough vitamin A in your diet. Have you heard of eye health food? A rapidly growing body of evidence seems to indicate that certain substances, called lutein, and its variant zeaxanthin, help protect the eyes against the harmful effects of the sun and may help prevent the onset of eye disease.

  • Fruits
  • Milk Products, Butter, Cream, Cheese
  • Carrots
  • Eggs, Liver
  • Squash
  • Green leafy vegetables

Insufficient vitamin A can cause problems like these I have listed below:
