One of the most beautiful blessings to us from God is to see this beautiful world. We see how beautiful nature is, we can see all our beloved ones, and we can capture and treasure many memorable moments in our eyes.

So, it is our prime responsibility to take care of our eyes. After using smartphones, we see that many people got addicted to using phones so much that they even see the phones in the dark taking their eyesight for granted. Better late than never, we should realise our mistakes and ensure we care for our eyes.

As part of Prevention of Blindness Week this year in 2023, the Government of India is conducting a campaign from 1st April to 7th April 2023 to bring Awareness among people and educate them about the prevention of blindness.

During this week, everything will be explained in detail about how to protect our eyes, what kind of food should be taken, and what mistakes we generally make that affect our eyesight.

This week is especially about Glaucoma, a total loss of vision. In the year 1976, the National Program for Control of Blindness was started, and since this, it has been continued every year for a whole week in the month of April.

I want to share some more information that I have learnt recently about the eyes. If you too have any information, you are most welcome to share the information so that our knowledge can be helpful and bring Awareness among many people.

1. Headaches and Eyes are often interlinked:

Most of the time, we may ignore headaches considering stress or work pressure, but there is a possibility that the headache can be an indication of a vision problem. This can be caused as we spend most of the time looking at the screen on our mobiles or laptops, which automatically causes this problem.

2. Kids also get a headache that may be connected to eye problems:

So, parents and elders at home, please don’t ignore this important information; we often give our phones to keep our kids busy so that we can do our work, but overuse mobile would affect the kids’ vision.

3. Right time right checkup would save us:

So, any time you feel that you have a headache or kids at home complaining, don’t neglect but go and meet your ophthalmologist immediately and get checked.

4. There are certain places at the workplace where we may need to take additional precautions to keep our eyes safe. So make sure you take completely necessary precautions at the workplace before starting your job.
