How to Maintain Good Eye Health

It is the habit of constant staring at the screen without blinking that makes the eyes reddish and gritty.

ACryingEyeNewYour sight is an important part of your sensory experiences in life, so taking care of your eye health is non-negotiable.

One of the simplest ways to maintain good eye health is keeping you hydrated at all times. This helps your eyes stay well lubricated, preventing everyday irritable issues like dry eyes, tired eyes and red eyes. If you have dry eyes, it could affect the retina (the layer of tissue at the back of the eye that acts like a film in a camera) and could cause complications that will eventually adversely impact your vision. Dry eyes also tend to look bloodshot because the blood vessels become dilated due to dryness and overexposure to the sun.

People who lead an active lifestyle play sport and stay outdoors a lot must drink plenty of water through the day.
Normally, your body assumes the responsibility to keep your eyes well lubricated by the natural production of tears. But if you keep yourself at the edge of dehydration, it becomes difficult for it to do its job properly.

Also, as you age, your eyes may develop a tendency to become dry so you also need to treat that with the help of eye lubricants. Most of the over the counter eye drops are safe and effective. Unlike when you can keep your mouth closed and opt for silence when you have a dry mouth, with dry eyes, you hardly have the choice to close them.
