Importance of Eyelid Hygiene

Regular and complete daily hygiene of eyes is important. This is true for both patients who receive treatment and in healthy people. Air pollution, unclean water, unhygienic hands, the act of rubbing eyes are all potential sources of infections which can cause eye disorders, and sometimes even lead to serious diseases. Thus needs to create better awareness to keep eyes clean, inculcate daily eye hygiene habits and also products that help to ensure that eyes are free from any kind of contamination.

Do you clean your teeth every day? Most people will answer this question with a yes, as this is a good habit that has been inculcated in our society, and has given way to healthy and shiny teeth, contributing to better health. Can the same be said for Eyes? Maybe not. We live in a world which is increasingly getting more polluted letting out more dust particles, smoke particles, and bacteria to stick to outer surfaces of our eyes. Add to that the increasing use of devices such as computers, laptops, and smartphones which make our eyes work longer and even harder. When we come to really see the reality, we realize how our eyes, which are perhaps one of our most valuable organs, are suddenly under a lot of distress. Should we think more proactively about dealing with this? Absolutely yes.

Its good to be more aware of eye and eyelid hygiene. By cleaning eyelids, eyelashes, and eyebrows, the external structure of the eye, one can certainly keep their eyes clean and healthy. One can also avoid many symptoms such as itching, burning sensation, an urge to rub one’s eyes, which potentially can lead to other disorders such as blepharitis and dry eye. So, it’s very important that one cleans eyelids daily like one cleans teeth in the morning. This habit of maintaining eye hygiene will help in preventing many infectious and inflammatory eye disorders.

Facial makeup has become part of everyday life. But, do you know that many chemicals used in these makeup materials can reach one’s eyes and can damage them? These materials must be cleaned effectively every day so that eyelids and eyelashes remain clean without any residue of chemicals, debris, and deposits. This should be a part of a daily routine and hygiene process.

Eye hygiene is especially essential in case of young children, where natural systems of self-defense have not been fully developed yet. Healthcare professionals recommend removing conjunctival mucous secretion which is present on eyelids and eyelashes upon waking up in the morning and can cause irritation in the delicate skin of children.

Importance of Eye Lubrication

High-quality lubricating drops are important to wet the corneal surface and provide essential nourishment to eyes. With the right lubricating eye drops – many surface diseases, potentially caused by long exposure to screens can be prevented. Long exposure to modern gadgets such as smartphones, computers, TV, etc has an adverse effect on the act of blinking eyes. Less eye blinking leads to less tear secretion, which ultimately causes dryness and itchiness. High-quality eye lubricants can be advantageous in restoring tears in eyes and alleviating symptoms. Waypham has introduced internationally accepted – ‘sodium hyaluronate’ and “CMC’ formulations eye lubricants and eye drop with ‘Ocuvana HA’ and ‘Eyeway Tears’ which will help in providing better support for eyes.

Importance of Eye Nutrition

If not more eye nutrition is equally important for eye health. While diseased eyes can be treated with a high probability of success by eye doctors, the most effective strategy is prevention. Healthy nutrients available in diet and supplements can optimize and improve eye health effectively. Clinical studies have proved that supplements like lutein, zeaxanthin, carotenoids, vitamin C, vitamin E, and other nutrients such as Omega 3 FA play an important role in improving eye health. Salmon fish or flax seeds are key sources of Omega 3 FA, and marigold flower contains lutein. It can often get challenging to maintain the balance with these essential nutrients due to lack of availability of their sources in our diet. Taking supplements can fill these gaps. Supplements help in preventing many diseases and optimizing the daily dietary requirements to improve eye health. Aging is a key reason for many eye diseases in the elderly. It has been clinically proven that ocular nutritional supplements can play a tremendous role in effectively alleviating the elderly from diseases like ARMD (age-related macular degeneration), DR(diabetic retinopathy) and dry eye. Similarly, dietary nutrition supplements are helpful in alleviating and fighting many diseases in children and can trigger better growth. Multivitamins, Vitamin D, Omega 3 FA (DHA/EPA) and other such nutrients are important for daily intake.
