I'm sure you're wondering right now, what is the eye cancer? Is it possible to have cancer in the eye? The answer is yes.
According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, eye cancer or eye cancer is a malignancy or malignant tumor that begins and grows in this organ. Therefore, it is a group of atypical cancer cells in the eye that grow very quickly and uncontrollably. According to this same source, they are cancer cells capable of spreading to other parts of the body and can invade or destroy other tissues.
Why do you have to be careful with eye cancer? This type of cancer is slow and silent, so if there are visible symptoms in the eyeballs, it indicates that the disease has already progressed in the body of the person suffering from it. It is up to us to do everything possible to have excellent eye health and avoid this and other diseases that may affect our eyes.
We present five tips that will help you prevent eye cancer:
The first thing to help prevent this disease is to protect your eyes from everything. It is important to protect them from sun exposure especially at peak times, that is, from 12 to 16 hours. It's also important to take care of your eyes from prolonged exposure to screens to reduce eye strain and dry eyes that occur after continued use. We recommend that you try to reduce the light intensity as much as possible, keep an adequate distance and do not abuse the exposure time.
Ultraviolet rays are extremely harmful to our eyes and sight. Always remember to protect yourself using certified sunglasses with good UV protection and wear a cap or hat that covers your face very well if you know you will be exposed to the sun's rays.
We have all felt tired in the eyes at the end of the day. And it is that, believe it or not, eyeballs are also made up of muscles that we must exercise so that they stay strong and avoid feeling that eye exhaustion that bothers us so much. To think that it is like a trip to the GYM for your eyes!
You will see that it is very simple. Just practice these 3 exercises to easily exercise your eyes throughout the day. Try to do them daily:
For this exercise it is important to strain your eyes a little. It is possible that you feel some discomfort the first times you do it, but you will see how it will disappear as you exercise your eyes.
Repeat this last exercise for three minutes and you will see how relaxed your eyes will be.
Maintaining a good diet is essential to lead a healthy life, but believe it or not, eating properly also helps improve the functioning of our eyes. It is important to include in your meals foods rich in vitamins A and C, which favor the protection of the eye -especially against sunlight- such as carrots, onions, spinach and broccoli.
You should visit an ophthalmologist regularly to make sure your eyesight is healthy. At least consult once a year or immediately if you notice any alteration in your eyeballs such as changes in the size of your pupils, blurred vision, poor or sensitive to light, lack of peripheral vision, see flashes, spots or lines, if you notice moles in the eye region, or if you feel pain around or inside the eye.
Follow these tips to help you maintain healthy eyesight every day. Remember that eye cancer, like other chronic diseases, must be carried out by qualified and authorized professionals, who have the necessary technology to be treated correctly.
