Whether you are a smoker or a non-smoker, you have already heard that tobacco can have a negative influence on your eyesight.
Do you know that the eyes are the first exposed to the harmful substances contained in cigarette smoke?
There is no doubt that the use of cigarettes increases the risk of having eye problems. It must be taken into account that the smoke dries out the eye and over time, this drying out can lead to lesions of the white of the eye and the transparent cornea and thus cause more or less blurred vision.
What other diseases are associated with smoking?
Apart from dryness of the eyes, smoking can cause certain eye diseases such as cataracts, diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration associated with age.
So what can be done to prevent these diseases?
- Eat foods that are good for eyesight
- Clean the eyes, when there is contact with smoke
- Consult an ophthalmologist
