Today’s technological advancements such as laptops, smartphones and iPads have led to a modern trend of eye fatigue and other vision-related problems. More than ever, people are experiencing diminished eyesight. Blame it on the long periods of staring at the glaring images on our TVs, computers and cell phones.

But all hope is not yet lost. Although blurry vision is an inevitable part of aging and of modern living, you can still help promote and preserve your vision. At the very least, these tips can help delay the deterioration of your eyesight.

A Juice a Day Keeps the Eye Doctor Away: Blend together celery, peppermint and parsley and you have yourself a vision-clearing concoction. Research has shown that these ingredients share a common antioxidant bioflavonoid—luteolin. Scientific evidence shows that luteolin protects the eyes from the harmful UV rays. In addition, luteolin helps regulate blood sugar levels

Veggies for Eye Health: There’s a reason why Popeye kept munching on that green leafy veggie. Apparently, spinach is also good for the eyes. Full of lutein and zeaxanthin, these antioxidants helps prevent macular degeneration of the retina. Aside from spinach, lutein and zeaxanthin can be found in squash, broccoli, corn, green peas and carrots.

Water: Experts always say we should drink eight glasses of water every day. In addition to flushing out the toxins from the body, water lubricates and nourishes the eyes.

Relax your Eyes Regularly: A busy workday in front of the computer can really strain the eyes. Once in a while, relax them. Stress can deteriorate your vision faster. When you feel your eyes getting tired, it is best to close them for a while.
