Eye massage

Other than eating the foods mentioned below ,an alternative way to get healthy eyes is to do a simple  eye massage

Step 1 :
EYE SOCKET 
Keeping your eyes closed, use your middle finger to massage the eye-socket bones and down to the bridge of the nose. Repeat 8-10 times.

Step 2:
PRESSURE POINTS 

Press on the the pressure points just under the brow bone below the inner eyebrows and count to 3. Then press at temples and do the same.

Step 3:
EYE CREASE 
Using your thumbs, gently press on the area right above the inner corner of the eyes where the crease of your lid begins. Press slowly and release. Repeat this exercise 5 times.


Step 4:
TEMPLES 
Using your middle fingers, massage the hollow area which is located in the temples on the side of your face using an up and down motion. Continue to massage the area for 1 minute.

Step 5:
BACK OF THE SKULL 
Using the tips of your index fingers, gently massage the area located in the back of the skull, directly behind the eyes. Take care not to press to hard since this is a tender spot. Continue to massage the area for 1 minute.

Lastly,end off the eye massage by rubbing both hands together until the hands get warm.Then place the warm hands on top of the eyes for around 1 minute .

Common Eye Diseases


Glaucoma:Glaucoma is increased pressure of the fluid inside the eye, which can cause optic nerve damage. Glaucoma is a common cause of blindness.

Cataract:Cataract is a clouding of the lens, causing blurry or color-tinted vision. People with cataracts often report “haloes” surrounding objects that they are looking at, particularly at night. It is most common in older people, and cataracts can be removed by surgery that replaces the lens with an artificial lens.

Amblyopia:Commonly referred to a "lazy eye," amblyopia occurs when one eye has worse vision than the other, and the brain begins to favor the better eye.

Retinal Detachment or Tear:A tear in or detachment of the retina causes blurry vision or partial loss of vision.

Dry Eye Syndrome:Dry eye is a lack of proper tears, usually due to a problem with the tear ducts or eyelids, or a problem with certain medications. This condition can cause pain and blurry vision.
