Simple Lifestyle Changes to Improve Your Eyesight

Eyesight improvement advice from Lasik experts

Have you ever wondered what the experts suggest for eyesight improvement? You are not alone. Many people wish they could spend a few minutes to see what eye surgeons say will help them have better vision.

No more smoking

Experts say many people get hooked on cigarettes when they are teenagers, but at that age they may not realize that it is bad for their eye health in addition to their lungs. Smoking can cause elevated blood pressure that can cause optical issues. It also deprives the body of necessary oxygen. While smoking cigarettes, tar and nicotine get into the eyes causing sinus problems, allergy issues, and makes it easier for people to get sick with colds and flu. The irritants that get into the eyes can create a film over them that generates more mucus at night, causing that person to have very blurry eyes in the morning.

Exercise

Just like exercise is healthy for weight loss and general health, it is also good for the eyes. Exercising lets the blood flow properly through the little veins and capillaries in the eye. Exercise makes the body cleanse the blood by making the heart beat and pump faster. It also adds oxygen to the blood which is good for eyesight.

A proper diet

Eating nutritious foods is vital to all parts of the body and the eye needs vitamins to stay healthy, too. Vitamin C, carotenoids, Vitamin A, and Vitamin D are all helpful to the eyes. Eating green, leafy vegetables and a variety of fruits, along with multi-grains, lean proteins, and low-fat carbohydrate choices is an excellent way to get many of these nutrients.

Hydration

The eyes cannot work properly without enough water. Fluids help the eye rinse itself to get rid of foreign objects like dust particles. It is also necessary to stay hydrated for proper blood flow. Water helps tear production too.
