Care For Your Eyes This Summer
Beautiful eyes sparkle if you take care of your eyes with some attention and regular checkups. It begins with lifestyle issues like what you really eat.

Regular visit to eye doctor will detect any eye problem in its early stages which will make treatment easy and successful. For the minor problems such as eyes strained by peering too closely at books or computer screen,
you can do simple eye exercises like holding a pen out at arm's length and looking at its tip till tears roll down your cheeks. It is essential to keep a strict distance between your eyes and whatever it is you are looking at. Take frequent breaks to close your eyes for up to a minute to give them some rest.
A good night's rest is what your eyes require after strenuous day. Splash your eyes with cold water to remove puffiness. A slice of cucumber or potato can do a trick for tired eyes. For itching eyes, wash your eyes carefully with water. If the itch continues for a while, you must see the doctor to rule out infection. It is important that you should go for full eye examination at least once in two years till you are 40; after that your visits should be annual.
