What is Eye Care?

 

Eye problems can distract from day-to-day life. The eyes work when light enters through the cornea. The cornea is the part exposed to the outside world, along with the whites. Only a small part of the eye is seen on the outside of the body. Once light enters through the cornea, it is bent to enter the pupil, which will open wider or restrict depending upon the amount of light. The retina sits at the back of the eye and receives an upside down image to transmit to the brain via the optic nerve. Eyes need special care and attention to keep them working correctly. If they do not work, someone can become isolated. 

What causes poor Eye Care?

Most minor eye complaints can be treated at home with over-the-counter drops available from the supermarket down the medicines aisle, the pharmacy or online pharmacy. Dry eyes can be caused by lack of sleep and allergies. They look red and bloodshot and are sore and itchy. Another condition that makes eyes appear red and itchy or sore is conjunctivitis. It is common in children and may require prescription antibiotic drops. 

Tearing occurs when there is too much water in the eye. Light, wind and temperature changes can cause it. Avoid makeup if you are prone to tearing. Always check the expiration date of makeup. Out of date makeup or make that has been opened can lead to an eye infection. Regularly wash and dry brushes and sponges. 

The sun can damage the eyes. Choose a pair of sunglasses with 99-100 per cent UVA and UVB protection when going out in the sun or when sunlight reflects off snow or water. Wraparound sunglasses protect the eyes from the side, and polarised lenses can reduce glare. 

Eyes do not react well with chlorine so wear swimming goggles in pools. They also do not like sediment found in lakes or the sea, so wear goggles when swimming no matter what the water. 

Dust and other particles can scratch the cornea. Wear protective goggles when coming into contact with small airborne materials or playing sports such as hockey.

The dangers of poor Eye Care?

Do not rub the eyes, especially if you can feel something in them. This can damage the cornea. The cornea is a barrier against dust and dirt. A scratched cornea can lead to an eye infection. Instead of rubbing, wash the foreign body out with water if a saline eyewash or multipurpose contact lens solution is not available. Seek immediate medical advice from a trained professional such as a pharmacist, nurse or doctor if there is no relief after flushing the particle out. Do not cover the eye with a patch as this can lead to bacterial growth and infection. Symptoms of a damaged cornea include pain, blurred vision, tearing, redness and light sensitivity. Do not wear contacts over a damaged cornea. 

Eyestrain can occur when eyes are overworked, such as from sitting in front of the computer, driving or reading. Take regular breaks from the computer by resting eyes every twenty minutes by looking 20 feet away for twenty seconds. Get up every two hours for a fifteen-minute break. Keep the screen level with the eyes and avoid glare from other light sources. Sit in a comfortable and supportive chair, even when using a laptop. Persistent eyestrain may be due to being long or short-sighted. Prescription glasses or contacts are available. Corrective surgery may be suitable in some cases. 

How to achieve better Eye Care?

 

See an optician every two years, even if you do not wear glasses or contacts. Eyes rarely hurt if something like near or long-sightedness is wrong with them. Keep prescriptions up to date. Regular eye exams can also lead to an early diagnosis of disease, such as glaucoma, which is a lot easier to treat and manage if caught early. 

A healthy diet can help prevent age-related eye problems. A life-long diet for good eye health includes one that is rich in zinc, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins C and E. Green leafy vegetables such as kale and spinach contain zinc. Oily fish, such as salmon and tuna or eggs, nuts, lentils and beans are excellent sources for omega-3 fatty acids. Vitamins C and E can be found in citrus fruits. The leading cause of blindness in adults is type 2 diabetes. Eating a healthy, well-balanced diet and getting plenty of exercises can prevent type 2 diabetes. 

As bodies age, so do the eyes. Cataracts, which are a progressive and painless clouding of the internal lens block light. They are more common in smokers. Macular degeneration is a breakdown of the retina, which also becomes more common as the body ages. Maintaining life long eye health with regular trips to the opticians and a healthy diet can help prevent these conditions. 

Whatever you do, do not rub your eyes. It is tempting, particularly with some medical conditions such as keratitis, ocular herpes and shingles. Rubbing the eyes with ocular herpes infection can spread the virus to other body parts, as can rubbing the eyes after touching a herpes sore, such as a cold sore or shingles sore. See an optician or doctor for prescription drops if required, or if symptoms do not improve.
