One of the
greatest enemies of our eyes is the sun.
Just like the skin, eyes are damaged by UV
rays coming from the sun, whether it is
overcast or a clear and sunny day.
Sunglasses should always be warn in daylight
hours when you are outside and you need to
be sure that the sunglasses you choose offer
UV ray protection. There are many sunglasses
sold which are just tinted glass and do not
really protect your eyes, they simply offer
shade from the brightness. Check the label
on your sunglasses before you buy them and
be sure to wear them.
Reading , working on the computer and
watching television really can tire your
eye. When you are doing any of these things
which require staring at one place for a
long time, it is important to take frequent
brakes and look at things farther away for a
bit, and look around from time to time to
offer your eyes a break and minimize
