Nobody argues that in order to maintain healthy eyes, you need to eat as many foods as possible that contain this vitamin, which helps in preventing and combating various infections, but also helps to reduce the fatigue of the optic nerve, a phenomenon that is very common in our time, because we are constantly straining our eyes, looking at the screen of a computer, mobile phone, tablet or TV.

What signs suggest that you have eye problems?
In addition to impaired vision and the fact that you have to wear glasses, an imbalance at the organic level caused by bad habits or lack of eye care can lead to the following consequences:
Excess of mucus in the eyes
This is the same mucus that sometimes accumulates in the edges of the eyes when we wake up. If you find that you have too much, then perhaps it is because of the excess of toxins that the body is trying to remove in any form and by any means.
The solution in this unpleasant phenomenon is a detox diet or unloading days, in which one should refrain from milk and sour-milk products, fried foods, meat, sugar or salt.
Thus, it is necessary to eat only fresh (allowed) foods and drink plenty of water.
Dark circles under the eyes
They can appear due to lack of sleep, as well as poor blood circulation in the eye area or due to unbalanced nutrition.
A proven method of getting rid of them is the following technique: sit comfortably and look up, without moving your head, just raise your eyes to the ceiling.
Close your eyes several times, without moving the eyeball. Thus, the blood will be better circulated and the tissues will receive the proper nutrition. Do not forget to include in your diet, fresh vegetables and water.
Not when you just woke up, or if you recently cried (cut a bow, watch a sad movie or have personal problems).
If the eyes are very swollen for no apparent reason, it can be due to a malfunction in the kidneys or their overload. It is also possible that you apply too intense makeup and do not remove it to the end in the evening.
How can you solve this problem? Every morning, drink pineapple or orange juice, use hypoallergenic cosmetics and try to get enough sleep.
Despite the fact that some believe that the appearance of barley is due to a virus that is in the air, the appearance of these granules of the eyelids is due to excess toxins, poor nutrition or overeating, as well as a lack of certain vitamins.
Avoid eating salty, sweet, fried or fatty foods. A home remedy for getting rid of barley is applying a heated golden object to it, for example, a ring.
