Here are a few ways to keep your eyes healthy and avoid bad vision.
Never sleep with contacts lens
Do not sleep with your contacts lens. Should you own a medically recommended one, even if the manufacturers say you can sleep in them, don’t be deceived. It is also important to avoid wearing non-prescribed decorative contact lenses.
Avoid homemade saline solution
Should you run out of your eye saline solution, never attempt to prepare a homemade remedy. It’s an easy route to conveying infections into your eye.
Never remove lesions from your eyelid
Do not try to remove lesions from your eyelid, whether a cyst or boil, never attempt to pop it. Doing so may put you at risk of infection and permanent damage. Rather, go and see a specialist.
Never share eye medicine, makeup
Stop sharing eye medicine or makeup. The eyes are one of the most sensitive organs in the body, hence sharing eye medicine or makeup is an easy way to catch an infection, like gonorrhoea.
Don’t stare at the computer for too long
Avoid sitting in front of computer screens for too long, rather give yourself a break once in a while, at least after 30 minutes. Your vision can get blurred once you sit in front of the laptop, without taking breaks, over a long period of time.
