How to protect your eyes from pollution, twelve most significant tips to keep your eyes healthy.

Hello friends..! You might know that your eyes are an important part of your body. There are many things you can do to keep them healthy and make sure you are seeing your best. Protecting your eyesight is one of the most important things you can do to help maintain your quality of life. Some type of sight-threatening eye problem affects one in six adults age 45 and older. And the risk for vision loss only increases with age.

> Following are the 12 most significant tips for maintaining healthy eyes well forever:-

1. Wear protective sunglasses to protect your eyes from harmful UV light.
Wear protective eye wear when playing sports or doing activities around the home. Protective eye wear includes safety glasses and goggles, safety shields, and eye guards specially designed to provide the correct protection for a certain activity. Most protective eye wear lenses are made of polycarbonate, which is 10 times stronger than other plastics. . When purchasing sunglasses, look for ones that block out 99 to 100 percent of both UV-A and UV-B radiation. Many eye care providers sell protective eye wear, as do some sporting goods stores. When outdoors during daytime, always wear sunglasses that shield your eyes from 100 percent of the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays. This may help reduce your risk of cataracts, pinguecula and other eye problems. "Studies also have shown that eating fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids may reduce your risk of developing muscular degeneration". Also, consider supplementing your diet with eye vitamins to make sure you are getting adequate amounts of the nutrients you need to keep your eyes healthy.

2. Eat healthy to protect your eyes sight.
Carrots are good for your eyes. But eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, particularly dark leafy greens such as spinach, collard greens is important for keeping your eyes healthy. "Research has also shown there are eye health benefits from eating fish high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon, tuna, and halibut". Numerous studies have shown that antioxidants can possibly reduce the risk of cataracts. These antioxidants are obtained from eating a diet containing plentiful amounts of fruits and colourful or dark green vegetables.

3. Know your family’s eyes health history.
Talk to your family members about their eye health history. It’s important to know if anyone has been diagnosed with a disease or condition since many are hereditary. This will help to determine if you are at higher risk for developing an eye disease or condition.

4. Maintain a healthy weight.
Being overweight or obese increases your risk of developing diabetes, blood pressure and other systemic conditions, which can lead to vision loss, such as diabetic eye disease or glaucoma. If you are having trouble maintaining a healthy weight, talk to your doctor. If you left untreated, these diseases can cause eye problems. In particular, diabetes and high blood pressure can lead to vision loss from diabetic retinopathy, muscular degeneration and eye strokes.

5. Quit smoking and never start again.
Smoking is as bad for your eyes as it is for the rest of your body. "Research has linked smoking to an increased risk of developing age-related muscular degeneration, cataract, and optic nerve damage, all of which can lead to blindness". So, leave smoking today.

6. Give your eyes a rest.
If you spend a lot of time at the PC, laptops, tablets or focusing on any one thing, you sometimes forget to blink and your eyes can get fatigued. Try the 20-20 rule, every 20 minutes, look away about 20 feet in front of you for 20 seconds. This can help reduce eyestrain.

7. Clean your hands and your contact lenses properly.
To avoid the risk of infection, always wash your hands thoroughly before putting in or taking out your contact lenses. Make sure to disinfect contact lenses as instructed and replace them as appropriate. Abuse, such as sleeping in contacts that are not approved for overnight wear, using saliva or water as a wetting solution, using expired solutions, and using disposable contact lenses beyond their wear can result in corneal ulcers, severe pain and even vision loss.

8. Practice healthy working environment.
Most employers are required to provide a safe healthy work environment. When protective eye wear is required as a part of your job, make a habit of wearing the appropriate type at all times and encourage your coworkers to do the same.

9. Early intervention.
Most serious eye conditions, such as glaucoma and AMD, are more easily and successfully treated if diagnosed and treated early. Left untreated, these diseases can cause serious vision loss and blindness. Early intervention now will prevent vision loss later.

10. Always know your eye care provider.
When you go to get your eyes checked, there are a variety of eye care providers you might see. Ophthalmologists, optometrists and opticians all play an important role in providing eye care services to consumers. However, each has a different level of training and expertise. Make sure you are seeing the right provider for your condition or treatment. Ophthalmologists are specially trained to provide the full spectrum of eye care, from prescribing glasses and contact lenses to complex and delicate eye surgery.

11. Look for warning signs of changes in your vision.
If you start noticing changes in your vision, see your eye doctor immediately. Some trouble signs to look for are double vision, hazy vision and difficulty seeing in low light conditions. Other signs and symptoms of potentially serious eye problems that warrant immediate attention include red eyes, frequent flashes of light, floaters, and eye pain and swelling.

12. Get your eyes checked in at least every two years.
 A comprehensive eye exam, including dilating your  can determine your risk for major eye diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, which has no early warning signs or symptoms. An eye exam also can ensure that your prescription for eye glasses or contact lenses is up to date.

> Regularly eating these foods can help you to lead good health eyes:-

Green, leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale, and collards.
Salmon, tuna, and other oily fish.
Eggs, nuts, beans, and other non-meat protein sources.
Oranges and other citrus fruits or juices.
Oysters and pork.
