Wear sunglasses

Sunglasses are not for style; these will protect the eyes from UV rays and cut down the risks of cancer and other degenerative diseases.  Choose UV resistant sunglasses that ensure absolute UV protection. Polarized sunglasses are great during sunny weather as it will cut down the glare and enhances the visibility.

Wearing sunglasses should be made a habit while venturing outside even in winter or fall season even when the sun may not be visible- because UV rays are present in the atmosphere 365 days a year!

Kids need sunglasses too

Kids are more prone to UV risks as their eyes are more sensitive. Make sure that the kids wear appropriate sunglasses when they are outdoors.

 Quit smoking

Kick the butt to  protect the health of your eyes and preventing different types of eye diseases like  Macular Degeneration   and  Cataracts   among others.

Stay fit

Staying active will go a long way in improving your overall health. Regular work outs can reduce the possibilities of many eye diseases.

Eat right

Do you include leafy vegetables and fresh fruits in your diet? Eating a healthy, balanced diet will keep your eyes healthy and cuts down the risks of diabetic eye diseases like glaucoma.
