All Eyes on Exercise

ALL EYES ON EXERCISE
WE ALL KNOW EXERCISE IS GOOD FOR YOU (IN MODERATION, LIKE
EVERYTHING ELSE…). WHAT HASN’T BEEN SO CLEAR UNTIL NOW IS
HOW IT MIGHT BENEFIT YOUR EYES! (RUBS EYES IN DISBELIEF.)
READ ON TO CLARIFY YOUR VISION ON THIS ONE!
This combo hydrates the eye surface and protects it against irritants – dust, dander, pollen, etc. The protective action reduces the likelihood of getting eye infections, as well as avoiding the development of dry spots, which would otherwise cause itchy, stinging, burning sensations. Blinkin’ clever, huh?
THE THINGS WE CAN DO DAILY TO IMPROVE OUR EYE HEALTH INCLUDE:
a diet full of juicy berries and verdant veg

eating plenty of nuts and seeds, the oils from which are associated with healthier blood vessels1

wearing protective glasses when out in the bright sunlight or in dusty, polluted areas

resting our eyes in between stints on screens or when driving

relaxing regularly, to prevent the eye muscles from being overly tense and strained

warm compresses or eye pads used regularly can be very soothing, and also ensure that the glands secreting helpful oils into the tear film don’t get gummed up

having sufficient light on the page/ screen when reading or working on screens

exercising… Yep, you read that right.
Canadian researchers have found that tear secretion and tear film stability improve after aerobic exercise.2 Who knew that a quick trot around the block could contribute towards relieving dry, itchy eyes? The good news is that the research involved both athletes and non-athletes, and the non-athletes exercised just once per week. The results were far better for the athletes who exercised at least 5 times weekly, but even the low-level exercisers experienced what the researchers called ‘a meaningful boost in tear quantity and tear film stability’ after exercising.

Given that exercise is also good for the rest of your body, enfolding it into your daily routine seems like a simple win.
If you have hayfever, exercising indoors may suit you best. Yoga stretches, Pilates routines, a mini stepper or a
skipping rope can all be handy helpers. For outdoor ventures, use
Pollinosan Hayfever Eye Drops (suitable from age 7) to protect you against pollen invasions.
As more of us spend more time staring at screens (many of them very small!), we don’t get as much
exercise, and our eyes increasingly feel the pain of a reduced blinking rate. More eye strain and increased risk of dry eyes – not a great result, and well worth countering with a few simple lifestyle swaps – get your trainers on!
Extra Moisturising Eye Drops will provide the velvety lubrication you need if your eyes are already dry and
sore, with that horrible gritty feeling. The Drops are suitable from age 12 and provide both moisturising hyaluronic
acid and the herb Euphrasia (eyebright).
