Eyes becomes the most important sense for humans to perform any activity on a daily basis. However, a variety of vision problems is always lurking humans in various forms.
The ophthalmologist says more than two thousand cases of eye injuries occur every day due to accidents at work. As many as 1 million doctor visits in each year, associated with the use of contact lenses mistakes that led to the infection.
Coupled with the 11 million people who suffered permanent impairment of vision due to age. “There are many things that people do everyday, which increases the risk of eye disease.” said James Tsai, M.D., president of the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai in New York City.
TSIA with colleagues provides a great way to ward off eye problems both short and long term. This practice in order to keep your eyes are in a healthy condition and the vision is always sharp.
1. Use sunglasses when you are outdoors
Sunlight is not only skin can burn out even the eyes were able to burn when exposed to sunlight.
Ultraviolet light (UV) at high risk for eye health. According to Rachel Bishop, M.D., as chief of the consult-services section of the National Eye Institute, in Bethesda, Maryland, said that exposure to uv able to cause cataracts, eye tissue thickening, until skin cancer around the eyes.
To avoid these conditions make it a habit to protect the eyes against the sun by wearing special glasses. UVA and UVB lens will reduce the risk.
2. Use of contact lenses are safe and comfortable
For those of you who wear contact lenses, familiarize yourself to take the contact lenses according to the needs. Moreover, get used to wearing contact lenses and put in a clean way.
Ninety percent of contact lens wearers do not use it properly. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) noted the use of a lens that is not true cause keratitis, or inflammation of the eye cornea.
Carolyn Carman, O.D., as director of the Center for Sight Enhancement of University Eye Institute at the University of Houston, said, “Certain infections can damage the eyes, even within 24 hours can turn into chronic irritation.”
Carman and Jeff Pettey, an assistant professor of clinical ophthalmology at the University of Utah Moran Eye Center in Salt Lake City were advised to wash their hands first every time you touch the eye and contact lens cleaning.
Additionally, you can wash with warm water contact lenses every single week. Rest is also eye from contact lenses to wear glasses.
3. Keep your distance when viewed rays
When looked at objects with bright light, you need to keep sight with distances for eye safety.
Laser and sun will damage the eyesight easily. Tsai said that when a person stares rays without any protection would undermine the central vision of the eye.
4. Avoid rubbing eyes
Scrubbed or rubbed his eyes with a strong movement will cause damage. Not only causes the delicate skin around the eyes stretch, it also able to cause abrasion of the cornea and cause visual distortion.
Where visual distortion of vision such as seeing halos always sharp, which makes the vision become abnormal.
