Choosing healthy foods to eat is the key to keeping your eyes functioning optimally. Antioxidants play a role in neutralizing and reducing the activity of free radicals that can damage the macula and other parts of the eye. That’s the reason why you should choose foods that are high in antioxidants, such as kale, broccoli, corn, spinach, strawberries, nuts, dark chocolate, and fish that contain essential omega-3 fatty acids such as salmon.
In addition, you are also advised to eat foods that contain sources of vitamins A and C, such as carrots, mustard greens, sweet potatoes, pumpkins, citrus fruits and others. Of course, consume each of these ingredients according to the limit. Don’t overdo it, Beauties.

The thing that is often underestimated by most people is the duration and quality of sleep. To get rid of drowsiness, your body must get enough rest and sleep. As a basic human need, a night’s sleep for adults in general requires about 7-9 hours every day.
You must start to apply adequate rest and sleep to strengthen the immune system. Resting your eyes during sleep also helps your eyesight stay healthy. Try before going to bed not to be in a state of many thoughts, so that the quality of sleep is good and you can sleep well.

To protect your eyes from the sun’s UV (ultraviolet) rays, make sure you wear sunglasses (sunglasses) which resists the UV sun when traveling to places with hot weather. Don’t just wear sunglasses for fashion where there is no UV light, because the chances of vision become poor so that cataracts may occur.
Glasses also serve to protect the eyelid area which is usually prone to skin cancer. Well, now you have to always remember that glasses don’t just make you look cooler as accessories. However, glasses also have the function of maintaining eye health.

The next most important thing is to avoid unnecessary eye contact. Try not to touch, rub or scratch your eyes when your hands are not clean. If you do need to touch your eyes, make sure your hands are clean so that germs and bacteria don’t die and can’t get into your eyes.
The reason is, if your hands are not clean when you touch your eyes, germs and bacteria can cause infections such as conjunctivitis and eye infections.
By applying the methods mentioned above, you can definitely maintain eye health so that your vision remains good. Good luck with applying it, Beauties!
