Healthy eyes are a product of good genetic makeup, adequate nutrition, and avoiding trauma. If you otherwise see well, have no strong family history of serious eye disease, have not had recent eye surgery or a serious injury, you should be able to maintain good eye health with a balanced diet and appropriate eye protection used during hazardous activities. No special supplements are required. A good rule of thumb to reduce eye fatigue is the 20-20-20 rule. Every 20 minutes, look away from your computer screen or the book you are reading for 20 seconds at an object that is 20 feet away. See your eye doctor for a complete baseline eye exam if you are 40 and do not have risk factors for eye disease, or if you are concerned about a specific problem.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
