Ok, this post is not about having discernment in that sense but now that I have your attention :), let’s carry on, shall we? It’s summer time and eye health is not one of those things that I hear people talking about regularly. Since I wear eyeglasses and need them to function daily, these tips from Pearle Vision at Yorktown Mall will be something that I start implementing for optimal eye health. Here are the three tips that were sent to me today.
- Reduce computer-related eyestrain with 20/20/20. For every 20 minutes of screen time, look 20 feet in front of you for 20 seconds.
- Shade your eyes from the sun. UV rays can cause irreversible damage to your eyes, so be sure to wear sunglasses whenever you are out and about.
- Feed your eyes with foods high in lutein, omega-3 fatty acids or lycopene. Eggs, nuts, carrots, spinach, watermelon, papaya and fish are all eye-healthy choices.
All three tips are helpful which will require me to shop for a stunning pair of sunglasses. I also need to practice lifting my eyes up from my computer and most definitely ramp up the intake of nuts and watermelon.
Which tips will your incorporate?
