Eyes are god valuable gift. To ensure that we can enjoy good vision, we need to get regular eye checks. Follow our tips to maintain healthy eye!


1. When you're reading


     a) Reading distance

Be sure to read the distance between 30 to 40 cm from the book to the eye. If the distance is too close, it will cause the eye muscle tense to focus. This can lead to headache

      b) Body position while reading

The position of the body should always straight back. Do not read while lying down. This will cause the eye muscle to work more to focus on the reading material. Thus, your eyes will become tired and watery.

      c) Avoid reading when in a moving vehicle

Reading when in the moving vehicle and the bumpy road condition can cause a headache and motion sickness. This happened because the eye's ability to focus become unstable when reading.


2. Lighting

Sufficient light is essential when reading. Make sure the lighting is not too dim or too bright when reading because it will interfere with the comfort and health of the eyes

3. Food for eyes

Proper nutrition plays an important role in maintaining eye health and preventing eye diseases. Make sure that the daily food that you take can provide essential nutrients to maintain eye health. Practice eating foods rich in vitamin A & C - milk, vegetables (especially carrots and broccoli) and fruits (especially apricots and grapes) and so on.

4. Eyes supplement

There's a lot of eyes supplement sale on Amazon. Before buying, make sure to read the product review 


5. Make an exercise for your eyes

The first step, look at an object near you, then gradually see the further object as far as possible


The second step, then look back at the objects near you


The third step, repeat this process several times


After 1 to 2 hours in front of the computer, take a rest. Look at a green object, such as trees and so on. The green will make your eyes relax and rest

6. Computer Users

The use of computers in the right way can ensure good eye health. Some guides are available to computer users:

      a) Computer screen

Make sure the computer position is equal to the eye in a horizontal state and 30 cm from the eyes.

      b) Screen brightness

Eye fatigue due to computer use occurs when there is excessive light from the outside source (sun). Make sure the lighting around the computer is half dimmer than light used at home and office. Use an office light or a room that has the appropriate intensity.

      c) Reduce glare

Eyelid glare from light sources may occur as a result of light reversals from the surface of the wall, the computer screen and so on.


Avoid using brightly color room walls, such as white and use a computer screen that has a filter


For eyeglass wearers, make sure your lens has an 'Anti-Reflection Coating'(Multicoating) to minimize the effect of glare on eyes and reduce eye stress

       d) Blink frequently

Lack of blinking will cause dry eyes and cause the eye to have no protective layer.


If necessary, use eye drop to wipe the eye when it is dry and sandy. The condition of this dry eye may become worse when in an air-conditioned room or office.

        e) Rest 

If you're focusing on the computer screen for too long, you should rest for a while by trying to look at other objects for a moment every 20 - 30 minutes. This can reduce the stress of your eyeball.

7.  Use safety glasses (Safety eyewear)

If your job is exposed to hazards and may cause eye injuries from drilling, cutting, grass and so on, be sure to wear safety glasses or protective goggles to protect your eyes from harm.


Wear safety glasses when cutting grass using a lawnmower.

8. Wearing sunglasses

Sunglasses that provide Ultra Violet(UV) radiation protection from sunlight. Make sure you get advice from optometrists when selecting sunglasses that suit you. Good sunglasses are those that can screen and protect 99-100% UVA and UVB from sunlight. UV rays can cause cataracts.

There is a variety of sunglasses and contact lenses style that you may like.
To make it easier, listed below are the website that you can check. eBay and Amazon are mostly the first websites people would search for. Here I include other websites that specifically sell sunglasses or contact lenses only.
