Final Thought

We use our eyes to stare at small fonts and images more than ever before. So ask yourself this, are you eating foods that are best for your eyes? Are you performing relaxation exercises? While we stay busy carrying out our daily routines, and spend hours in front of the computer screen or glued to a good book, we rarely take time out to visit the eye doctor. However, there are a few simple exercises that you can carry out that hardly require much time or effort. When you're at work, exercise your neck by nodding your head up and down, thereby increasing blood circulation to your neck and eyes. Also, don't stare at the sun as it can be detrimental to your vision. Too much UV exposure makes you more prone to cataracts and macular degeneration. Also, you should choose sunglasses that block 99% to 100% of both UVA and UVB rays.
