Eyesight is one of the greatest gifts that God has blessed us with. Even the people living the unhealthiest of the lives tend to take the best possible care of their eyes.
These are the days when sitting in front of a laptop for long hours is part of the job of most people. So, putting some extra effort to keep the perfect 6/6 vision is required.
From eating a diet high in Vitamin A to consuming a lot of Beta-carotene is what you can do other than following other basic rules.
Still if you end up having some problem, contact lenses come handy. Here is the story of Chad Groeschen who has to teach you something very important.
A scuba diver and hiker, he couldn't have even imagined that something can make him unfit so instantly.
He just followed the user instructions as mentioned in the packaging which led to him losing his left eyesight.
Everything for him went upside down when he woke up that bad morning to see everything blurred and cloudy and couldn't believe his eyes, literally!
The cause of the discomfort was later found out to be pseudomonas bacteria. Contact lenses which are left on eyes for a longer period of time become home to this bacteria.
AAO says that - "Any lens, regardless of what the company claims, can cause similar damage if worn for too long". So, we have a lot to learn before using any health product.
