the inability to see things clearly unless they are relatively close to the eyes, owing to the focusing of rays of light by the eye at a point in front of the retina is known as short Sight.
1.Get enough key vitamins and minerals:
The structural proteins in the eye are mostly collagen. Nutrients responsible for healthy collagen include calcium, magnesium, born, silica, selenium, manganese, vitamin D and specifically vitamin C and bioflavonoids.
Vitamin A helps protect the surface of the eye (cornea), it is essential for good vision. ... Vitamin A, at least when in combination with other antioxidant vitamins, also appears to play a role in decreasing the risk of vision loss from macular degeneration (AMD).
2. Don't forget the carotenoids:
Carotenoids and eye health Age-related macular degeneration is the main cause of blindness in the older generation. It is caused by chronic damage to the macula by exposure to blue light frequencies. Having carotenoids like lutein, zeaxanthin, and meso-zeaxanthin in the diet can prevent such diseases.
3. Protect your eyes from the sun: Extended exposure to the sun's UV rays has been linked to significant eye problems, including cataracts, macular degeneration, pingueculae, pterygia and photokeratitis.
The intense ultraviolet (UV) rays of the sun can damage sensitive cells in the eyes, eventually affecting vision. Experts say it is difficult to isolate the exact amount of damage that UV radiation imposes on the eye over a long period. These problems may include cataracts, a clouding of the lens of the eye.
4. Manage chronic conditions:
Chronic diseases are defined broadly as conditions that last 1 year or more and require ongoing medical attention or limit activities of daily living or both. Chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes are the leading causes of death and disability in the United States.

5. Wear protective eyewear:
Goggles, or safety glasses, are forms of protective eyewear that usually enclose or protect the area surrounding the eye in order to prevent particulates, water or chemicals from striking the eyes. They are used in chemistry laboratories and in woodworking.
6. Quit smoking:
Smoking has long been known to cause heart disease and lung cancer; however many people don't realize that smoking can lead to vision loss. Studies show smoking increases the risk of age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy and Dry Eye Syndrome.
