Negative Habits that Cause Eye Damage


Resting Your Smartphone Eyes

We're phone-centric. Eye strain causes headaches, dry eyes, and blurred vision. 20-minute eye rests prevent these disorders. Enlarging your phone's typography prevents squinting.

Screen time and insomnia

Smartphones, e-readers, and TVs before bed impair sleep and damage eyes. Dark screens change quickly. This causes dryness and eyestrain. Reading in low light might exhaust you. Read before bed without screens.

Maintaining Contact Lenses

Contact lenses need care. Partner sleeping raises infection risk. The CDC reports one million Americans visit eye doctors for contact lens concerns. Nightly, clean and refill your contacts.

Stop Rubbing Your Eye

Scratching itchy eyes seems normal but it's risky. Rubbing your eyes might rupture blood vessels under your eyelids, irritating them. Eye doctors may offer cold compresses or artificial tears for inflamed eyes.

Moderate eyedrops

Eyedrops momentarily relieve dry eyes but may cause dependence and suffering. OTC eyedrops only treat redness. To minimise irreversible eye damage, the AAO recommends sparing use of over-the-counter eye drops. Side effects? See a doctor.

Eyesight and diet:

Diet affects eyes. Vitamins C, E, zinc, and omega-3 fatty acids are eye-healthy. Citrus, vegetable oils, nuts, whole grains, leafy greens, and fish supply these nutrients. Water moistens eyes. Excess salt dehydrates.

Safety Glasses

Home eye incidents are prevalent. Chemical cleaning products, cooking with hot oil, handling nails during home renovations, mowing the lawn, and using hot styling tools near your eyes are dangerous. Workplace safety masks prevent eye damage.

Excessive eyeshadow

Misapplying eye makeup can hurt us. Eyeliner might block oil glands and make you sick. Avoid sensitive areas and change eye makeup often. To prevent infection and sickness, remove mascara, eyeliner, eye shadow, and other cosmetics after three months.

Less Quality Sleep

Sleep affects our eyes and our health overall. Twitching, dryness, distorted vision, and pain can result from sleep deprivation. For your eyes and health, sleep seven hours a night. Avoiding electronics and relaxing down before bed can improve sleep.
