Here are some ideas for simple lifestyle changes you may make to better take care of the health of your eyes this summer.

Eat Healthy

Eating fruits and vegetables that are good for you is easier in the summer. Almost every place will have tomatoes, zucchini, which are excellent sources of nutrients good for your eyes. Do not forget to have your nuts and seeds because they contain omega-3 fatty acids that are good for your eyes.

Consume water

Keeping hydrated helps prevent dry eyes, which frequently get better in hot weather. Drink plenty of water throughout the summer as well. Dehydration results in eye irritation, which in turn can induce headaches from vision problems.

Complete UV protection eyeglasses

Although eyeglasses are necessary to wear all year round, they are especially important in the summer. Wear sunglasses that have been identified as providing 100 per cent Ultraviolet (UV) protection. UV protection helps keep your eyes healthy by eliminating damaging UV radiation. On cloudy days, do not forget your sunglasses because the sun can still be seen through the smog and clouds.

Eye care

Eye care is important, especially after exploring outdoor or on days when you had to go outside in the sun. You may take care of your eyes in a number of ways, including washing, cleaning with cold water, and applying eye drops. Summertime’s high temperatures have a possibility to make eyes dry up and appear tired. Eye drops serve as a purifier, preventing eye conditions including dry eyes.

Follow these simple ideas for protecting your eyes from UV rays that are unhealthy. When necessary, you can occasionally visit your eye doctor for medical advice.
