In our everyday lives, we don’t usually realize how some harmless habits can impact our vision in a negative manner. Neglecting signs like slight but persistent vision discomfort, can soon turn into a vision condition. Let’s discuss them in detail.
Staring Digital Screens
While technology has its pros, the cons usually begin with affecting our eyes. Prolonged exposure to harmful digital blue light from smartphones, laptops & digital screens can lead to eye strain & dryness. Keeping a tab on the screen-time is a good way to balance the act and keep eyes safe from the ill effects of digital glare.
Rubbing Your Eyes
Rubbing eyes to soothe slight itchiness is indeed relaxing but too much of it can indicate several eye conditions - starting with eye dryness. Rubbing your peepers too hard can even leave your cornea scratched, disrupt the blood flow & might also lead to keratoconus.
Not Removing Eye Make Up
Once in a blue moon, you may want to drag yourself straight to bed after a long day at work. But make sure you do it only after removing your make-up if you do not wish to struggle with infections, irritation, itchiness or redness, especially in your eyes.
Not Getting Enough Sleep
Binge-watching till the wee hours on weekends or working up till late in the night might be a regular scenario keeping in mind your on-the-go lifestyle. But not sleeping enough is surely paving way for dark circles, puffy eyes and tired looking you. Complete a good 7-8 hours of sleep cycle everyday to ensure healthy & rejuvenated eyes everyday.
Not Wearing Sunglasses
So it’s getting cold day by day and you have already packed your summer-essentials away. But, did you know Sunglasses should be worn all year round? In winters, the Sun sits lower in the sky making your eyes prone to the ill effects of UV light. So, get those shades out & put them on each time you head outside.
Handling Contact Lenses Poorly
Are you taking your feathery light contact lenses too lightly? Taking them underwater, wearing them without cleaning them properly or putting them on for way too long than prescribed? If it sounds relatable, you are surely risking your vision with your everyday contact-handling habits. All of these can cause irritation, inflammation or serious infections to your eyes.
Smoking increases the risk of macular degeneration and cataracts and is also one of the leading causes of loss of vision among people who are above 50 years of age. If you are already suffering from Dry Eyes, chances are smoking will further worsen your condition.
While many changes in our vision are often beyond our control, we can still try and delay the onset of some conditions with minor changes in our lifestyle to keep our eyes healthy & as perfect as they are for as long as possible.
