Just How Important are Your Eyes?

Could you Imagine not being able to see? Or to suddenly or slowly go blind because of a generative disease? Your eyes are precious. Take care of them.

 What is eyesight?

 You definitely want to have healthy eyes. A few tips are listed below that may be helpful for your eyesight.

Anti-Glare Screens

Did you know that anti-glare screens an protect your eyes while on the computer? You can also, turn the lighting down on your computer, because the light from it can cause eye strain. I discovered this after having eye surgery. It was a slow process in getting back to using my computer, because I discovered my eyes and head would hurt when I attempted to read or write on the computer. Even though I had anti-glare protection on my glasses, I still had the pain. I could not even get on the computer for 5 minutes. Eventually I purchased an anti-glare screen for my computer. I found that made all the difference. The anti-glare screen is a great investment if you are using the computer a lot.

Quit Smoking

I know that smoking may be a touchy subject for some, but according to WebMD smoking is more likely to cause cataract, nerved damage, and Macular degeneration. Some probably think that will never happen to them until it happens.


It does not hurt to invest in a good pare of sunglasses which may range from $150.00 and up. A good pare of sunglasses will protect the eyes and keep those dangerous sun rays from your eyes and this is so important. You want to block those UV-A and UV-B radiation. Even though I have that protection on my regular bi-focals, I find that my sunglasses work so much better. I really appreciated my sunglasses after my eye surgery, because they give my eyes so much protection, as my eyes are also sensitive to the light. I recall after my surgery putting my sunglasses on when leaving church. A lady asked me if I was making a new fashion statement. I explained to her my eyes were sensitive to light after eye surgery and the sunglasses helped me out a lot. I (lol) I laughed out loud.


According to the National Eye Institute, you want to try the 20-20-20 rule: every 20 minutes, look away about 20 feet in front of you for 20 seconds in order to reduce eyestrain if you are spending a lot of time at the computer. Have you taken time today to rest?
