Save your Eyes

Simple steps to save your eyes ----

Eat better

Have a vitamin-rich diet which includes citrus fruits, green leafy veggies, tomatoes, spinach, poultry and dairy products.

Drink water
Drink plenty of water. It helps reduce puffiness.

Tea bags
Place two refrigerated tea bags on your eyes for a few minutes as you relax. This soothes your eyes and also reduces puffiness.

Take a walk
After lunch, go out for a stroll to expose your eyes to fresh air.

Splash water
Close your eyes and splash water on your face to relax your eyes.

Use your palms
Sit upright, rub your palms against each other and lightly cup your eyes for 60 seconds. The warmth thus generated helps soothe your tired eyes.

Shift Focus
Try and look at distant objects every now and then. This exercise helps reduce strain and lets you focus better.

Exercise your eyes.
Begin with blinking your eyes several times. Then, close your eyes and roll your eyeballs both clockwise and anticlockwise. Slowly exhale and open your eyes. You’ll find them totally relaxed.
