Easy ways to improve your vision

Easy ways to improve your vision

  • Wear sunglasses or hats every time you walk outside for protection against the sun and wind. If you are squinting, you could be hurting your eyesight.
  • Eat sweet potatoes. They are loaded with vitamin A, which helps to improve your night vision.
  • Check your blood pressure every month. The two leading causes of blindness in the United States are high blood pressure and diabetes, both of which damage blood vessels.
  • Switch to light salt or use spices and herbs instead. High-salt diets increase your risk of certain types of cataracts.
