GOOD TO KNOW
Epidemiological studies have highlighted the role of anti-oxidising vitamins (vitamins C and E) and carotenoids such as lutein and beta carotene in preventing ocular ageing.
Lutein is a carotenoid (i.e. a natural pigment), which plays a key role in keeping the eyes healthy and in preventing ocular ageing. It is contained in numerous foods, especially raw green vegetables, spinach, broccoli, pumpkins, peas, chicory or even eggs and maize. It is not synthesised by the human body.
DIETARY RECOMMENDATIONS :
Choose vegetables with a high lutein and zeaxanthin content: kale, spinach, broccoli, romaine lettuce, maize, peas, Brussels sprouts, water cress, parsley, pepper and pumpkin.
Eat egg yolks (crumble on a salad for its lutein content) but not more than twice a week.
Eat cold-water fish (salmon, sardines, mackerel) twice a week.
Use wheat germ oil (do not heat it) or olive oil. Sprinkle salads with wheat germ (source of vitamin E).
Avoid smoking and alcohol. They destroy the beneficial properties of lute ins and vitamins.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR VISUAL COMFORT
Apply warm water compresses to the eyelids if your eyes are dry.
Use artificial tears. They will temporarily soothe sensitive, irritated eyes. You can get them free of charge from pharmacies.
Take breaks if your work involves computers. Turn away from the screen for a few minutes after working for an hour. This will reduce the risk of eye fatigue from staring too long at a cathode monitor.
Improve your working environment. Reduce the glare from your monitor or install an anti-glare screen. Adjust the intensity so that the letters stand out much more clearly against the background. The height of your desk should be adjusted to your height and the screen should be close to the keyboard to reduce the field of vision.
Protect yourself from the sun during outdoor activities (wear a sun hat and sunglasses). Avoid blue lasses which will increase the harmful effects of U.V. rays.
