Eye sight is a gift, though we often take our eye sight for granted. Our eyes are highly complex, and involve many structures working together to allow us to see the world around us.
What you can do to maintain healthy eyes
Fortunately, there are many ways to maintain good eye health and function, including seeing an optometrist for regular eye examinations to detect any vision changes.
You can also make lifestyle changes that can positively affect your eyes, including:
- stopping smoking
- protecting your eyes from sunlight
- eating a healthy diet that contains plenty of fruit and vegetables
- taking a dietary supplement that contains nutrients that benefit eye health, such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Zinc, Vitamin E, and Bilberry, which helps absorb light.
