Many eye drops are available in the market that claims to be best for eyes but, you need to be aware of them, some can really harm your eyes.

  2. Consult a doctor before using the eye drop.

  3. It is advised to use an eye drop within a month once you have opened the seal. Don't use your eye drop ones it completed a month from the day of seal opened.

  4. Don't touch the tip of your eye drop. Bacteria from your fingers can be mixed with the eye drop.

  5. Close the lid of the eye drop immediately after using.


2. Use Rosewater

In Ayurveda, Rosewater is said to be good for eyes to keep them healthy. It contains healing, inti-septical and anti-bacterial properties which can soothe your eyes, hydrate them, cool them and keep them free from dirt and dust. It also helps against stress and provides relief to your eyes. You should add rosewater to normal water when you are going to wash your eyes. This can do magic. Make sure you use a herbal rosewater. And don't forget to check the ingredients of rose water as well.



3. Wash your Eyes



Washing eyes every day 3-4 times a day is a very helpful habit for keeping your eyes healthy. As I told above you can also add rose water to your water to wash eyes and this will multiply the benefits. Make sure you wash eyes gently and properly. Using an eyewash cup is a good idea to wash eyes properly. But you can do it with regular way if you want.

4. Exercise



Eye exercises are very important for keeping eyes healthy. And this task can be done at most of the time of the day even you have missed your morning routine. Usually, morning and evening are the best time for exercise. I exercise my eyes in the morning time. If you know some eye exercises that is Great! you can start with them. If you don't know then you should learn it. You can learn from Youtube as well. If you want me to suggest you a video then comment below.

Exercises will maintain blood flow and the stretching of muscles of the eyes. Regular eyes exercise will maintain the size or enlarge them and will keep them young. You can notice those who do not exercise their eyes seems tiny and going inward. So, do at least 3 three excises every day 5 to 10 to your eyesight healthy and better.

5. Blinking



Blinking is important for the eyes. While we are busy in the T.V., smartphone, laptop, and PC we forget to blink our eyes and stare at them continuously. This is bad for the eyes. It causes dryness of eyes, makes the cornea hazy or look brownish. Foreign particles like dust can enter into your eyes and can cause itching and other problems. If this goes for long it can worsen your eyes. Make sure you blink your eyes properly even while you are using these gadgets.

6. Have a distance from the screen

Here I am talking about the screen of T.V, mobile, laptop and PC. The closer you will have your eyes to the screen the more damage your eyes will get.  The less distance you will have from the screen the less focus of light will be on your eyes and thus reduces the harmful effect of white light on your eyes. So, maintain a proper distance from the screen and at least 30 cm from mobile and PC screen. Make this your habit. In this way, you are contributing to healthy eyes for a longer time.





7. Use good eye protection App on your smartphone



You also contribute to better eyesight if you are using a good eye protection app. Here you can adjust the brightness of the screen according to the time or keep it dim. Some eye protection apps also remind you to blink or exercise your eyes when you are using the smartphone for hours. This is the very helpful feature. Make sure you install such an app on your phone if you have not installed, yet after reading this post. I use "Night mode - blue light filter, eye protector". This is not so advanced app. But helpful for me as I use my phone less than an hour a day.

8. Don't use your phone or laptop in Dark

You may know that mind secrets melatonin hormone. It tells the brain that it is dark and the body needs rest. As dark(night) approach the mind secretes melatonin. That help in sleeping. But while you are using your phone or laptop in dark the bright light falls into your eyes signals your brain that it still bright and effects the secretion of melatonin. It suppresses melatonin and this result in disturb sleep cycle. The main thing is that you also need a good sleep to keep your eyes and eyesight healthy every day.

You should leave your laptop or phone 2 hrs before your bedtime or at least 1 hour. When I do not leave my phone or laptop before 2 hrs to my bedtime I experience I  am not able to sleep at that moment and have to wait for 25-30 minutes and then I fall asleep.

9. Sleep proper and complete



Sleep also matters in keeping your eyes healthy every day. When you have not completed sleep properly at night you may feel eye burn, itching and redness in your eyes in the morning. It may cause inflammation to your eyes. Lack of sleep can also lead to other health problems too like heart problems. Now it means you need a good sleep overnight. Check out how many hrs you should sleep here.

10. Read at the proper distance



Our elders always advice to maintain proper distance while reading or writing. If you read or write too close to your book or notebook this is not good for the eyes. Initially, you may not face the issue of bad eyesight but in some months if you keep this habit then definitely in a long time it will weaken your eyes. And you may need to wear spectacles. Those students who write read at a close distance have more chances of weak eyesight and having specs. So, please maintain a proper distance and good posture as well while reading, writing.

However, it not good to look at the sun for a long time. 10-15 minutes at early dawn and dusk best and enough for a day. This also called Sunbath. I do not practice it as I do not have the facility to see the horizon clearly.
