How to take care of your eyes:
Having a healthy lifestyle can help to keep your eyes healthy.
Keep your eyes safe from the sun by wearing sunglasses.
Stop smoking – it is bad for your health and for your eyes.
I often go running. It is good exercise and I feel more energetic after it. Sometimes I wear sunglasses when I am running in the park, but some days I forget them. If it is very sunny, I should put on sunscreen as well as sunglasses to protect my skin and my eyes. Sunlight can damage my eyes if I stay out in the sun too long without protection.
I have started going swimming three times a week with a friend who lives near me. It was her idea, actually, and she is trying to convince me to stop smoking because she says that it will be bad for my lungs and my heart in the long term. I am not sure that I will be able to stop smoking completely, but perhaps if I swim more often and run more often, then maybe I could smoke less. In any case, swimming is good exercise and it’s fun too!
Taking care of your eyes is not difficult. But it is important. Our eyes work hard every day. They may need a good rest. And they need good food and care.
Remember, there are no extra eyes to replace them if they get damaged. So take care of them now!
If you wear glasses, make sure your prescription is correct. Also make sure the lenses have no scratches on them. Do not wear old glasses; the prescription may be wrong for your eyes now.
If you do not wear glasses, check your eyes at home from time to time to ensure that they are in good condition and to help prevent disease or damage.
I always knew I had a problem with my eyes because I could never wear contacts. They made me feel so uncomfortable and they would always dry out. I remember going to the eye doctor and him saying that I have abnormally shaped cornea’s. He told me that it was genetic and something I was born with.
Because of this, my eyes are extremely sensitive to light as well as having difficulty seeing at night due to poor night vision. As you can imagine, this makes driving very difficult for me especially when the sun is setting or when it’s dark.
I’ve tried multiple types of contacts, but none of them felt right on my eyes. After years of wearing glasses, which I hate, I decided to get LASIK done.
It was a very easy procedure and I’m so happy with the results! It only took about 15 minutes per eye and there was no pain involved at all. The only discomfort I felt was during the first week after surgery as my eyes were healing, but then everything cleared up very nicely!
First of all, it’s important to realize that your eyes are not balls. They are organs with multiple layers. The outermost layer is the conjunctiva, and underneath that is the sclera. The cornea is the transparent part of the eye and protects the inside parts of your eye. Just behind the cornea is the iris which is responsible for regulating how much light enters your eye. Next is the pupil, which is surrounded by a ring of muscles that contract and relax to change in size based on how much light there is. Hyphema (blood in anterior chamber) can occur as a result of high blood pressure or trauma to your eye. Your lens sits behind your iris and helps focus light onto your retina, which sits at the back of your eye and contains photoreceptors that detect light. The innermost layer of the eye is called the choroid, which contains blood vessels that nourish structures in your eyes.
Eyelids protect our eyes from injury and foreign objects, keeping them moist so we can see clearly, and reflexively blink to wash away dust or other irritants. Blinking also spreads tears over our eyes to keep them lubricated. Tears are made up of water (tear fluid), oil (
Milia are tiny white bumps that can appear on your face, usually under your eyes. They’re caused by a buildup of keratin (a protein in the skin) or oil that gets trapped under the outer layer of skin. Milia can be present at birth or develop later in life.
Milia are very common and not serious. They typically clear up on their own within a few weeks to a few months and don’t require medical treatment.
If you have milia and want them gone sooner rather than later, or if you have them in large quantities, talk to your doctor about options for removal.
Milia are small, white bumps that occur on the skin. They are filled with keratin and appear when dead skin cells become trapped in a small pocket on the surface of the skin.
What causes milia?
Milia can appear at any age, but they tend to be more common in babies and older adults. Newborn babies often develop milia around the nose and chin. The condition usually resolves itself within a few weeks.
The most common cause of milia is sun damage. When UV light damages the deeper layers of your skin, it can lead to changes in collagen levels, which may result in milia appearing on the surface of your skin.
Other causes of milia can include:
using heavy creams or ointments, especially steroid creams or ointments;
using exfoliants that are too harsh for your skin;
using oil-based makeup removers; or
Milia are small, white or yellowish bumps that can appear on the skin. They are very common, especially in newborn babies. People of all ages can get milia.
Most cases of milia clear up without treatment. If you have milia, you might choose to have them removed for cosmetic reasons.
Milia are formed when keratin gets trapped just below the skin’s surface. Keratin is a protein that makes up the outer layer of skin and hair.
The exact cause of milia is unknown. The condition has been linked to:
certain medications, such as corticosteroids and diuretics
injuries to the skin, such as blisters and burns
skin conditions, such as bullous pemphigoid and epidermolysis bullosa
excessive exposure to radiation therapy or X-rays
