Treat Your Eyes Right
Eat a healthy diet as it is very beneficial for your health, including the health of your eyes. Plenty of fruits and vegetables should be part of your daily diet as they can significantly improve the health of your eyes. Vitamins such as Vitamin A, C, and E, or minerals are important for your eyesight. Antioxidants are very beneficial as well as they are a great source of nutrients for your eyes. If you are worried about your vitamin intake, then you can consider vitamin supplements.
Getting the necessary rest is important for your health, including the health of your eyes. You should take some brakes during the day while working, as well as get plenty of sleep at night. This is especially important if you work on a computer all day, straining your eyes too much. Sitting in front of your computer all day will do no good to your eyes.
However, as life is not imaginable without a computer, try to take breaks every hour. Just close your eyes or get up and walk around the office for about 10 minutes. Focus your eyes on something else and not on a screen. There is also the known 10-10-10 rule which consists in looking at something 10 feet away for 10 seconds, every 10 minutes that you spend working on a computer in order to help your eyes relax.
The rest during the day is not enough. For a better health of your eyes, you should get at least 8 hours of good sleep at night. If your eyes are well rested, normally they will be in a better condition.
