Eating carrots improves your eyesight
Carrots contain Vitamin A. True!! But, even green leafy vegetables and fruits solve the issue. They can protect and prevent our eyes from age related problems and general problem but they cannot solve the medical conditions like near and farsightedness. And hence, we have glasses. So, next time, eat carrots but, not with a thought that all they do is protect your eyes.
Sitting too close to TV can damage your eyes
If you are sitting too close to your TV, it may be a sign that you already have vision problems like nearsightedness and this will hold true for any other things that you want to take a close look at. It could be any different thing too. It might be strainfull but there is no scientific proof that says that this really damages your eyes.
Reading in dim light is not done!
Any habits which is said to be harmful to your eyes is reading in dim light. In spite this myth, we all do it and sometimes it also feels comforting. But, all reading in dim light can do to your eyes is fatigue them or give you a headache but, it doesn’t really damage your eyes. It cannot!
Sunglasses is the only way to protect eyes from the sun
It’s not only sunglasses that protect your eyes from the sun, it’s the UV protecting element added to your lenses. This coating can also be added to clear prescription glasses and it will solve the same purpose. Just because sunglasses have dark and shaded lens doesn’t mean they can protect your eyes.

We go for an eye check up only when we have trouble seeing or have eye fatigue or headaches. But a regular check up to keep track of your eye health is equally important. It would not cause you any harm now, will it? Go on! The next time you go shop for glasses in NZ, we hope you will be a bit relaxed.
