Healthy Eyes
Healthy eyes start with a healthy diet.
1. Never use old makeup
We often see patients experiencing discomfort because they applied outofdate eyeliner or makeup. Replace your makeup regularly and dont use mascara or eyeliner thats more than six months old. Sharing makeup and makeup brushes will also increase your susceptibility to eye infections.
2. Get some fresh air
Working in an air conditioned office or building can dry out your eyes even if you dont wear contact lenses, making them uncomfortable and itchy but a little fresh air will help.
3. Don t rub your eyes
If you have something in your eye, dont rub it. The best thing to do is lift the upper eyelid outward and gently pull it down to cover the lower lashes causing tears to wash the object out of your eye. Lens wearers should take them out and clean them thoroughly.
4. Sit 50 60 cm away from your screen
Make sure you sit about 5060 cm away from your computer screen and that there is no light reflecting off the monitor.
5. Get your eyes tested regularly
Its important to have a regular, comprehensive eye test because optometrists can diagnose not just problems with sight, but major health issues too, such as high cholesterol, liver damage and many others.
