What Can Damage Your Eyes?

Every day, we hear about things that are bad for our health. The latest one is 5G. Because it uses higher frequency waves, it requires more transmitter masts that are positioned closer to the ground. This is triggering the long-debated question about how radio waves affect us, in particular in relation to certain cancers. Although such concerns to our health come and go and are hard to back up with hard evidence, the ones that relate to the health of our eyes… Read more

How to look after your eyes on holiday this summer

Spending a few hours in the sun is one of the best shortcuts to looking and feeling younger and healthier.

This isn’t good news for anyone not wanting to return from their holidays looking older than when they went.

Eye health: Staying hydrated

  Water is all around us: vast oceans cover nearly three-quarters of the world’s surface. It circulates in the air as vapour, flows in rivers, gathers as lakes, and freezes in icecaps and glaciers. It’s even underneath us, stored in vast aquifers miles beneath the earth and settled in soil just a few millimetres under our feet. But water is also inside of us — or more accurately, is us. Up to 60 percent of the human body is made up of water, and… Read more
