Here’s The Thing About Your Eyes

Care for your peepers 101

Let’s admit it: more often than not, we take our eyes for granted. We appreciate the things we see through them, but we don’t take care of them the way we need to. Remember though, we only have a pair of eyes, and prevention is still always better than cure. With that said, here are a few things you can do to make sure that your eyes remain healthy and bright.

Accessorise and protect  with sunglasses

We’ve heard about it again and again: sunscreen is a must when protecting your skin. Why don’t we do the same for our eyes? Use sunglasses to protect your eyes! Too much sun exposure can lead to bigger chances of getting cataracts and other eye problems.

So make sure that you get sunglasses that block UVA and UVB rays. The stylish premium sunglasses by Bolon Eyewear, which feature high-definition polarised lenses, have UV 400 protection that shields the eyes from not only UVA and UVB rays but also UVC rays. They also have anti-glare capabilities to ensure that you have a clear view of anything you set your eyes on. The best part? They’re designed with an Asian fit so you can be assured that your favourite Bolon pair will sit nicely on the bridge of your nose.

Don’t forget to rest your eyes

We understand how hard it is to put down our mobile devices and get off our computer screens. There are just so many interesting things on the Internet, and so much work to do. But your eyes will thank you for even just a little bit of away time. If you don’t take quick breaks, you’ll risk getting eyestrain, blurry vision, dry eyes, headaches, trouble focusing, and even neck, back and shoulder pain.

Eat well

A balanced diet is the key to maintaining a healthy body, and that includes your eyes. Make sure that you also eat foods that contain vitamins and nutrients to help in warding off eye problems. Get a healthy serving of foods that contain vitamin A, omega-3 fatty acids, lutein, and zinc. These can be found in green leafy vegetables, salmon and other oily fish, eggs, nuts, and oysters.

Pay regular visits to your optician

We often limit our visit to the doctor’s clinic when we feel something bad happening in our body. We say, pay your doc a visit even before anything happens. A check-up ensures that you’re in tip-top shape, so don’t hesitate to get your eyes checked at the optician.

Know when you need eyeglasses

At the optician, you may find out that you actually need prescription glasses. It may sound like a bad thing, but it’s actually good! At least you already know how to make sure that you don’t feel any type of inconvenience in your eyes. So make sure that your prescription is up to date.

We implore you not to be rash about picking your eyewear, though. Chances are, you’re going to have to use them all the time. So it’s best to pick a premium companion that goes perfectly with your style. Bolon offers fashionable pieces with top-notch quality. There’s a style for everyone, too. So whether you’re edgy, classic, or something in between, you’ll find something right for you.
