How can I keep my eyes healthy?

In Australia with our harsh sun, it is wise to wear sunglasses and a hat. Direct, excessive exposure to the sun increases the risk of cataracts, macula degeneration and pterygia. Healthy, nutritious food is also most important to keep our eyes as healthy as possible. The eye is beautiful, intricate and fragile. In many ways it reflects our general health. You have a much better chance of healthy eyes if you keep yourself as healthy as you can.
