2. Quit smoking

Smoking leads to many diseases such as cataracts, damage to the optic nerve, macular degeneration and many others. Try to quit smoking at all costs, the more determined to quit, the easier it will be to succeed.

Sunglasses will help protect your eyes from the sun's ultraviolet rays. Exposure to too much UV increases the risk of cataracts and macular degeneration.
Choose glasses that block 99% to 100% of UVA and UVB rays. Polarized lenses can help reduce glare while driving.
If you're wearing contact lenses, choose some that offer UV protection. And wearing sunglasses at the same time is a good idea to create an extra protective eye barrier.

4. Use safety glasses

Some sports can cause eye injuries (such as ice hockey, squash, or lacrosse). Therefore, it is necessary to use safety glasses in particular and protective gear in general when playing these sports.
