Eyes are perhaps the most beautiful gift of God to us from which we see this world. But often we do little to care about the most precious gift as we neglect them.
This negligence can cause blindness or vision impairment in the long run. Here are ten tips for good eyes and healthy vision.
1. Clean your hands
It is very important that you wash hands thoroughly before touching your eyes. Our hands are filled with dirt and minute pollutants, when they meet your eyes can cause eye infections and conjunctivitis.
2. Say no to smoking
Excessive smoking or constant chewing of tobacco can cause macular degeneration or blindness, due to the presence of harmful compound, nicotine.
3. UV protect your eyes
It’s true that sunshine is good for eye health, but nothing in excess is ever good. If your work demands you to stay outdoors, then always wear good UV protected sunglasses. This will help prevent or delay the problem of cataract.

Wear safety goggles or eyewear, while working with chemicals, playing sports, bursting crackers or while swimming. A slight touch can harm your eyes.
