10 BASIC APPLICATIONS FOR WHAT TO DO TO PROTECT EYE HEALTH

Perhaps our most precious treasure is the eyes… the means of discovering, understanding, making sense of the world. So, how well do we look at our eyes, whose meaning and size are too large to be described in words?

A healthy body passes through healthy eyes, Op. Dr. verified long member of Turkey Medicals told us about 10 basic applications that we should pay attention to in daily life for strong and healthy eyes.

  1. Eye examination condition: go to the Turkish eye doctor in Turkey. The fact that you can see near or far without problems does not mean that you do not have any problems with eye health. Many eye ailments progress insidiously and are revealed by the doctor’s in-depth analysis. Moreover, regular doctor’s check-up allows early diagnosis of eye diseases that can lead to permanent vision loss and prior detection of many systemic diseases. Remember, the first signs of the most dangerous diseases are revealed in the eye. For this reason, have an eye exam 1 time every year.

  2. No symptoms should be neglected: do not ignore any eye-related symptoms! Even small problems that we experience in everyday life can cause irreversible damage to our eye health. Even a rash or itching that you experience in the eye can start this process. Therefore, when we encounter conditions such as redness/itching, we should first do a cold water dressing and provide the moisture needed by the eye with artificial tear reinforcement. Despite this, if the symptoms do not go away and increase (burning, stinging, excessive Burr, light beams, etc.) consult your doctor without neglecting. 
    .
  3. Do not miss these nutrients from your table for eye health: eat healthy! There are essential nutrients, especially for our eye health. Carrots, carrot juice, mango, orange juice, melon, cabbage, spinach and fish led by these foods should not be missing from our table and make it part of the daily nutrition routine. In addition, you should keep your weight balanced according to your body Index by eating healthy. Because excess weight invites many eye ailments. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataract are just a few of these diseases.
    .
  4. Dietary supplements are of great importance for eye health: take dietary supplements for strong and healthy eyes! In addition to a healthy diet, the nutritional supplements we will take are of great importance for both your eye health and for slowing down the progression of existing diseases. Vitamin A prevents night blindness and creates a strong barrier to macular degeneration and cataract formation. Vitamin B12 deficiency in the body brings with IT problems such as burning/redness in the eyes, corneal and light sensitivity, while you can prevent these diseases with B12, which you will get from foods and food supplements. In addition, Vitamin E protects the retina, while vitamin C creates a strong defense against diabetic retinopathy.
    .
  5. Sunglasses are a shield for our eyes: be sure to use sunglasses! Although it takes on the role of a complement to clothes as a fashion object today, sunglasses are more important than we thought. Certified sunglasses act as a shield for your eyes while protecting you from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet and infrared rays. For this reason, you should be extra careful when choosing glasses and choose sunglasses according to your eye, not according to fashion. In particular, you should note that glasses comply with the en 1836 standard.
    .
  6. Limit your computer use: limit intensive computer use! Looking at a computer screen can not cause any refractive error, in a more explicit expression, it does not “disrupt the eye”, but it causes a number of results that we call “computer vision syndrome”, which are more compatible with the eye signs. It has been proven by scientific studies that people’s blink reflexes decrease during computer use. This, in turn, can cause redness, watering, blurred vision, and fatigue in the eyes later in the day. In short; although computer use does not cause a direct eye problem, it can cause serious damage to the eyes by indirect means.
    .
  7. Take breaks at regular intervals: take breaks periodically! If you have a busy pace of work and have to work long hours at the computer, be sure to take breaks at certain intervals. You can set these intervals every hour. All you have to do is look at a remote spot in the office or out of the window, away from the computer screen that you’ve been focusing on for long hours.
    .
  8. Quit smoking now: don’t smoke! If you smoke, quit as soon as possible. Because it doesn’t stop counting the effects of smoking on your eye. Smoking is the most important cause of age-related yellow spot degeneration. It also accelerates the formation of cataracts and dries your eyes. Because it causes atherosclerosis, it leads to blockage of the vessels of the eyes. Result? Irreversible vision loss.
    .
  9. Numbered glasses help the eyes function effectively: use numbered glasses! We need to talk about a very common mistake. It is also the misconception that numbered glasses cause laziness and eye distortion in the eye. Many eye and vision ailments increase as age progresses. In other words, using numbered glasses does not disrupt our eyes, but rather allows the eyes to function more effectively.
    .
  10. Review eye diseases in the family: search for a history of eye diseases in your family! Diseases that your relatives have give you many tips. By reviewing family eye diseases in Turkey, you can decide whether you are at greater risk for certain diseases and take precautions.
