According to Healthline, the eyes are essential for our daily lives and it’s important to take steps to protect them from damage. Here are some tips to help protect your eyes.
The sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause damage to your eyes. Wearing sunglasses that block 100% of UV rays can help protect your eyes from these harmful rays.

Use protective eyewear

Eat a healthy diet
A diet rich in fruits and vegetables, especially those containing vitamins A, C, and E, can help protect your eyes from damage.
Get regular eye exams
Regular eye exams can help detect early signs of eye conditions such as glaucoma and cataracts, allowing for early treatment and prevention of further damage.
Maintain good hygiene
Avoid touching your eyes with dirty hands and clean your hands frequently to prevent the spread of infections that can cause eye damage.
