Not Protecting Your Eyes Will Make Vision Loss More Likely
Speaking of eye safety, there are many habits you should avoid in your 30s for the good of your eyes. One of the worst things you can do for your eyes is to fail to protect them. UV rays from the sun can aren’t just bad for your skin. They also cause lasting damage to your eyes, leading to cataracts and vision loss. A good pair of sunglasses will block 99 to 100 percent of UV rays. If you wear glasses, look for ones with UV protection and keep your prescription up to date to avoid straining your eyes.
If you wear contacts, clean them thoroughly, and don’t wear them longer than recommended. Put your contacts in before applying makeup, and never, never sleep in your contacts. The blue light from computer and phone screens can also damage your eyes. If you work in front of a computer all day, consider using blue light-blocking glasses and screen filters, or rest your eyes frequently.
