Five Things You’re Doing to Ruin your Eye Health

1- You don’t eat enough oily fish

Fish, particularly salmon, can be a great food to consume for eye health. Salmon and other fish have omega-3 fatty acids. These are healthy fats. Omega-3 fatty acids can contribute to visual development and the health of the retina in the back of the eye. They can also help prevent dry eyes.

2- You’re not snacking on almonds

Almonds, like other nuts and seeds, are generally good for eye health. Almonds contain vitamin E. This vitamin guards against unstable molecules that target healthy tissue. Consuming regular amounts of vitamin E can prevent age-related macular degeneration as well as cataracts.

3- You’re having too much salt and sugar

Eating lots of sugary, salty foods may make the eyes more vulnerable to age-related macular-degeneration (AMD), a top cause of vision loss.

4- You don’t blink enough

A lot of people suffer from dry eyes. They become itchy, red, sore and fatigued. In some cases, these symptoms can cause inflammation, so if you feel that your eyes are dry, use drops.

5- You’re wearing bad sunglasses

Only wear sunglasses with 100% UVA and UVB protection against the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
