How to maintain healthy vision?

Prepared by Alina Zarnitskaya

How to maintain healthy vision? People usually start thinking about this question after any problems associated with visual discomfort arise. This feeling is familiar to everyone, for example, who works at a computer, when both eyes begin to hurt from staring at the screen for a long time. Of course, in such cases it is necessary to follow certain rules for handling a PC:

  • do not sit in complete darkness when the only bright spot is the laptop screen;
  • blink more often to avoid drying out the cornea of the eye;
  • take ten-minute breaks periodically.

These rules are simple and known to almost all users, but in reality, rarely does anyone adhere to them exactly. The result is that sooner or later vision problems begin.

The computer is not the only cause of potential problems that require the attention of an ophthalmologist. The eyes get tired after prolonged reading, when wearing contact lenses, and when driving for a long time, and under the influence of bright or, conversely, dim lighting. Often there is no way to limit these irritating factors, and vision is at risk all the time. Of course, deterioration under the influence of the listed reasons does not occur abruptly.

If a person notes that his vision is decreasing every day, this is a sign of the presence of more serious causes than tired eyes, and urgent consultation with a doctor is necessary.

To prevent visual impairment, doctors often recommend taking oral medications that contain a complex of substances that have a positive effect on the health of the visual organ.

A new product «SlezaVit» from World Medicine Ophthalmics has appeared on the Ukrainian pharmaceutical market, which is a combination product containing a vitamin and mineral complex for the eyes with blueberry extract, lutein and zeaxanthin. Blueberry anthocyanins stimulate the synthesis and regeneration of the visual pigment rhodopsin, thus increasing visual acuity and improving adaptation to darkness in low light conditions. At the same time, the retinal regeneration process is accelerated and eye fatigue after prolonged strain is reduced.
