Here's a quick tip: Step outside!

Not only is being outside better for your mood, immunity and overall health, it’s also awesome for preventing and treating certain vision ailments. Here’s how! When we go outdoors, the bright sunlight forces our eyes to “flex their muscles” as we work to focus on objects off in the distance. That sunlight also triggers the release of two key neurotransmitters, dopamine and serotonin, through areas of the retina. This is key because dopamine is believed to block excessive growth of the eye, which causes myopia; while serotonin is responsible for regulating our sleep-wake cycle, which ensures our eyes get enough rest and recovery time while we sleep. By contrast, the low, unnatural-lighting, blue light from screens and closeness of indoor objects doesn’t afford our eyes the workout and natural light they need to stay healthy. @Udit @Srishti kashyap @Tuheena @Sujith NK @Ruhi Sachdeva @Sujasha Paul @Apurva Chauhan @oshin
