Little I need to prove that the eye is the most important sensory organ in the human body.

Without it you will not be even able to see the latest programs on the Dish TV Packages you had recently bought! So you recognize the importance of your eye, but many of us take it for granted. In spite of it being delicate, the natural protective mechanism is robust and if you choose to donate your eyes after your death, it is still usable to give vision to the unfortunate lots who have lost their vision.

So the importance of protecting them jealously is natural and there are many things that you can do to keeping them healthy till your last days. If you wish to understand your eyes more deeply, you can buy a book that will graphically show its mechanism, or if you have an internet connection at home try making a search. There will be hundreds and thousands of pages that will give you all the information, some will be like a FAQ you see on websites. Should you however choose to use the information you find on the websites, cross check that with your doctor. You cannot take risk with your eyes, remember well.

Not everyone will need to see an ophthalmologist frequently, but even at the slightest hint of an irregularity, consult them immediately. Children often cannot tell about the uneasiness they get on their eyes. It is often the parents who have to take the responsibility to find it out from the children’s behavior and get them medical attention. Try not to delay a visit to the eye doctor; the earlier you get to diagnose the ailment or a disorder, the easier it is to treat them. Diseases apart, some children may be prone to vision problems from a very early age. Parents therefore need to take the additional burden of finding that out and taking corrective step.

Vision cannot correct by itself as some lead us to believe, on the contrary they can get worse and sometimes result in blindness.

More so, you have to be careful with some fruits that contain large amounts of sugar.

If your eye doctor has recommended eye glasses, wear them. The doctor has good reasons to prescribe them, and before you start using them find out if it need to be worn all the time you are awake. Some spectacles prescribed for long sight, usually for the older people, are not worn always, and if you don’t like wearing them, find if it is okay to wear only during reading.

The traditional spectacles are best, it is easier to keep them hygienic, and if at all you suspect the possibility of a contamination you can get it sterilized straight away. On the other hand contact lenses can be cumbersome to maintain, but nevertheless people use it if aesthetic appeal is important to their profession. On the low side, besides the difficulties involved in maintaining them, they can be expensive too with a limited life span. Check that out when you order your contact lenses.

Eyes like the rest of the organs need regular exercises to keep them healthy. The muscles around the eye need regular exercises; do them regularly in addition to the exercises you do for your body. Massaging the muscle around your eyes can help you to keep them healthy too.
