Home > Health Library > Tips for Good Vision
The following tips can help you keep your eyes healthy and your vision as clear as possible.
Use soft background light, plus a light on your task.
Blink often, and close and rest your eyes when they feel tired or dry.
Place your TV or computer screen where lights do not reflect on the screen. Some people find it easier to work on a computer in a dimly lit room. And some people use special nonglare screens that fit over the computer screen.
Wearing sunglasses can protect your eyes from excessive ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun. Too much UV exposure can damage your retina and cause lasting vision loss. It can also raise the risk of cataracts.
