Here are some good choices you should make for healthy eyes at all ages.
Know your family’s eye health history. Learn if any eye conditions affect your family members.
Eat right. Fruits and vegetables (especially dark leafy greens like spinach or kale) and fish high in omega-3 fatty acids (like salmon or tuna) may help your eyes.
Maintain a healthy weight. Excess weight raises your risk for diabetes and other conditions that can harm vision.
Wear protective eyewear. Wear eye protection specially designed for sports, home improvement projects, and other activities.
Wear sunglasses. To protect your eyes from sun damage, choose glasses that block at least 99% of both UV-A and UV-B rays.
Quit smoking or never start. Smoking is linked to an increased risk for several eye diseases.
Clean your hands and your contact lenses. Avoid infection by washing your hands thoroughly before putting in or taking out contact lenses. Disinfect and replace lenses as instructed.
