Care Your Eyes
Our eyes express our emotions and thoughts beautifully when words fail us. It’s our responsibility, in turn, to take care of them. In today’s world, with the workload and strenuous lifestyle, eyes have lost their natural beauty. You get dark circles, puffiness, redness, itchiness, wrinkles, and what not.
Your eyes are your windows to the world, so it’s important to take good care of them. Things like seeing an eye doctor regularly, getting enough sleep, and giving your eyes regular breaks while you are using a computer can help keep your eyes in good health. If you are having problems with your vision, you should schedule an appointment with an optometrist as soon as possible.
Dark discoloration of the skin under and around the eye is known as dark circles or dark rings or shadows.
Dark circles are not a serious skin problem, but they make people look tired, exhausted, unhealthy and older. If dark circles are not treated on time, they will not only dull your overall appearance, it can also lead to serious health issues.
Eye redness refers to a red appearance of the normally white part of the eye. The eye looks red or bloodshot because blood vessels on the surface of the eye widen (dilate), bringing extra blood into the eye. Pinkeye typically refers to eye redness caused by a specific viral infection.
