Rest and exercise

Eat for your eyes
Almonds are the best food for good eye health, and having about eight to ten of these, will ensure that your eyes get all the vitamin E that they need. Besides almonds, papaya or carrots must feature on your every day diet list. Both these contain beta-carotene and vitamin A which will guard your eyes against the usual eye problems like cataract and color blindness.
Omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids are also known to help immensely in protecting the eyesight, and the best source for these fatty acids is flax seed. Also sunflower oil, peanut butter and omega 3 fortified eggs may be able to supply you with these fatty acids.
