How to take care for of your eyes in winter

There is no season of the year that does not pose a threat to our eye health. During the winter months the eyes tend to be more sensitive due to temperature changes caused by the cold and heating. This is related to a lower production of tears and a considerable decrease in ocular lubrication. Today we give you some recommendations to take care of your eyes in winter and deal with dry eyes.

  1. Approved sunglasses. Its use in winter is important to prevent the tears from evaporating with the cold and the wind. You have to try to cover the eye completely. This is important especially if they are clear or in the case of children, since they are more vulnerable to the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation.
  2. Blink frequently. It allows to keep the eyes hydrated to avoid dryness and irritation.
  3. Exercise your eyes. Help reduce the risk of them getting tired by constantly forcing them to maintain focus. It is advisable to look at a point far from where you are, at least every 20 minutes. This will relax the muscles that help you focus up close.
