Dilation will cause light sensitivity and difficulty reading for at least 4 to 6 hrs until the eye goes back to normal. The procedure is safe and the doctor might provide disposable sunglasses to help with light sensitivity.
Eat healthy food
It is no secret that the food we eat has a big impact on our health. Eating the right kinds of food can help in preventing glaucoma.
Eat food that is rich in vitamins such as eggs, green leafy vegetables, and whole grains. Food rich in omega-3 such as chia seeds, tuna, and salmon is also good for your eyes.
Having a well-balanced diet not only prevents glaucoma, but also keeps a person away from other health problems
Maintain a good weight
Being obese increases pressure inside the eyes (intraocular pressure) and this increases the risk of developing glaucoma. Keep your weight in check.
If you are obese, make sure to consult your doctor for any precautions you might take to prevent glaucoma.
Exercise regularly but also safely
Regular moderate exercise can decrease intraocular pressure. Jogging at least twice or thrice in a week can be beneficial to your eyes.
However, avoid overexertion and too much heavy lifting. Too much exercise may also increase intraocular pressure.
