Take Care of Your Eyes

It’s important to take care of your eyes — just like you take care of the rest of your body!
Here are a some easy things you can do to help keep your eyes healthy:
  • Wear sunglasses (even on cloudy days) that block out at least 99% of both UVA and UVB radiation.
  • Eat eye-healthy foods.  It’s true! Carrots are good for your eyes and so are dark leafy greens, like spinach or kale.
  • Get plenty of physical activity.  Regular physical activity comes with a lot of great benefits including protecting you from serious eye diseases.
  • Give your eyes a rest.  Lots of screen time may make you forget to blink.  Try using the 20–20–20 rule throughout the day: every 20 minutes, look away from the screen and focus about 20 feet in front of you for 20 seconds.
  • Protect your eyes — at work and at play.  Protect your eyes from injury by wearing protective eyewear, like safety glasses, goggles, and safety shields.
And, if you've ever wondered how your eyes work, watch our video on seeing.
