Hello Aruna,

Eye health greatly depends on our diet, lifestyle and sleeping pattern. Using excessive electronic equipments like computer, laptops, TV, etc, pollution, dust and stress may lead to eye problems.
For healthy eyes, some lifestyle and dietary changes are necessary. 


  • Start the day with a glass of warm water. This will help to remove the toxins out of the body. 
  • Include Vitamin C in your diet like have lemon juice or orange or amla.
  • Have soaked nuts, dry fruits and sprouts to get the easily absorbable nutrients. 
  • Have carrots, fresh green leafy vegetables like spinach and fresh fruits.
  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day to be hydrated. 


  • Put gulab jal in your eyes.
  • Wash the eyes with cold water 3 to 4 times a day. 
  • Make a habit of doing exercise or yoga daily.
  • Perform ardha shirsha asana, parvat asana as they will improve the blood circulation.
  • Avoid excessive use of electronic devices like mobiles, laptops, tv, computers, etc.
  • Walk barefoot on grass early in the morning. 
  • Soak sunrays early in the morning. 


Lack of sleep and stress may cause eye issues like burning, itching. Hence, have a proper sleep of at least 7-8 hours daily. Sleep early at night and also wake up early in the morning. 

Instead of using any electronic pieces of equipment, read books before sleeping. This will improve the quality of sleep.
