It’s important that we take care of our eye health. Maintaining good eyesight should be one of our top priorities.
Here are some of the home remedies that can help us improve our vision instantly.
Almonds are generally good for the health of our eyes. It is rich in vitamin E that guards against unstable molecules that target healthy tissue and has been found to help prevent age-related macular degeneration and cataracts.
Enjoy almonds as a snack. They can be added to yogurt or in salads. Just remember to keep an eye on serving size. Simply consume one to two servings a day.
Blink More Often
A person blinks more than a thousand times a day. It is the natural way of restoring moisture into our eyes. Blinking cleans the surface of our eye of any debris and washes it out with fresh tears. Also, it nourishes our eye with oxygen and nutrients, thus keeping our eyes healthy and comfortable. An average person blinks 15-20 times per minute or about 1,200 times per hour.
Make sure to blink every 5-6 seconds or close the eyes for 5-10 seconds. This will give our eyes relief especially if we are reading or working a lot on our computers. Doing this will help us prevent having sore, dry, irritated eyes, and blurry vision.
Apply some pressure on certain points of the body to relax the eyes and in return, experience brighter and clearer eyesight. Some of the acupressure points in the body are indirectly connected to the eye and accessing them will be very beneficial.
Place the thumbs on these points and apply slight pressure:
Nostrils Point – Pressing both sides of the nostrils simultaneously and repeating this gentle massage for 5 minutes every day can help activate all points around the eyes, preventing unclear vision, headaches, sinus pain, and nasal congestion.
Bridge of the Nose – these points are near the bridge of the nose under the eyebrow and on the outer side of the eye socket. The points can help relieve fatigue, redness, and strain of the eyes.
Edge of Eyes – These pressure points are on the inner edge of the eyes, near the bridge of the nose. Accessing these points every day for 3 to 5 minutes can help relax eye muscles and help us have a clearer vision.
Doing this can help relieve eye strain and stress. We can do this exercise when our eyes need relaxing – during computer or television breaks.
For this, we simply need to lean forward onto our desk or table Then close the eyes. Place the hands over the eyes: the center of the palm should cover the eyes; the fingertips should be on the forehead, and the base of the palm should rest on the cheekbone. Avoid putting pressure on the eyes. Allow the eyes to blink. Sit this way for two to three minutes and repeat this exercise three times a day.
