Eye protection and care

Throughout the year, our eyes are exposed to various conditions and circumstances that affect eye health. Sometimes it's about external influences, like strong sun or dust, and sometimes it's about our own everyday choices.

It is important to continuously make good decisions and act preventively and actively in order to ensure quality care and protection for our eyes.

A healthy and varied diet is generally important for the proper functioning of the body, as well as for the health of the eyes.

It is good to include foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, lutein, zinc and vitamins C and E in your diet. This means that your diet should contain plenty of green leafy vegetables, citrus fruits and nuts.

Also, provide the body with sufficient hydration, as the quality of tears depends on this. It is recommended to drink two liters of water a day. In the summer months, this need is even greater, so always carry a bottle of water with you.

Maintain regular eye hygiene

In order to carry out proper eye care, it is necessary to regularly maintain hygiene.

This primarily refers to the removal of dirt and bacteria to prevent irritation, infection or inflammation of the eye.

Before the morning and evening washing routine, it is important to wash your hands thoroughly, so that the dirt from your hands is not transferred to your eyes. It is especially important to pay attention to this if you apply makeup every day.

Choose the appropriate cosmetic products

To avoid allergic reactions, carefully choose products for the eyes and the eye area. Try to choose only quality and proven manufacturers.

Also, pay attention to the shelf life of cosmetics. Bacteria can appear on old eyeshadows, eyeliners and mascaras, which could then be transferred to your eyes.

In addition, clean your make-up equipment regularly. If you notice eye irritation, stop applying eye make-up until the discomfort subsides.

Protect your eyes from external influences

When we look at the screen for a long time, we blink much less. This can cause dry eye disease or irritation.

Therefore, experts advise the so-called 20-20-20 rule for people who spend time with digital devices every day. Every 20 minutes, look away from the computer and focus on an object 20 feet (6 meters) away and look at it for 20 seconds.

You can set an alarm to remind you to do this if you often have problems with eye strain or dry eyes.

If you wear glasses, clean them regularly so that dirt from the glasses does not transfer to your eyes. When wearing contact lenses, take care to regularly disinfect and maintain them.

Also, for protection from the strong sun and UV rays, choose quality sunglasses.
