How to Love Your Eyes


10. Prioritise your eyes - you need them to last all your life.

Put reminders in your calendar to have regular eye checks. You should have your eyes checked every 1-2 years.

9. Book an eye test to detect problems before they arise.

An eye test can detect an eye condition even before it’s affected your eyesight, so even if you don’t think there’s anything wrong with your eyes, you should book a test.

8. Don't smoke.

Smoking increases your risk of developing serious eye conditions and permanent sight loss.

7. Eat a healthy diet.

Eating a balanced diet ensures you have the vitamins and minerals that are essential for maintaining healthy eyes.

6. Exercise regularly.

Doing regular exercise can reduce the risk of developing conditions like diabetes or high blood pressure which can affect your sight.

5. Check your cosmetics to avoid eye infections.

Check the expiry date on eye makeup and replace your brushes regularly to prevent the buildup of bacteria that could cause eye infections.

4. Wear prescription glasses, if you need them.

You should wear your prescription glasses to see clearly and prevent your eyes from having to work harder which can lead to eye strain and headaches.

3. Wear sunglasses outside.

Make sure your sunglasses offer UVA and UVB protection to prevent radiation from the sun damaging your eyes.

2. Spent time outside.

Children should spend at least two hours a day outside. This also helps their eyes develop in a healthy way and helps them avoid developing nearsightedness.

1. Follow the 20/20/20 rule to give your eyes screen breaks.

When using a screen, look at something 20 feet away for 20 seconds every 20 minutes, to avoid eye strain and headaches.
