Always wash your hands before you touch your eyes. Your fingers are covered with bacteria because your hands touch surfaces that other people have touched. If you touch your eyes without washing your hands, you will transfer bacteria to your eyes and cause irritation or even an infection. Therefore, before touching your eyes, wash your hands with soap and water.
Make sure you always have adequate lighting when you work or read. Your eyes will be straining all the time if you're trying to see things without sufficient illumination in the room. Over time, this can cause serious damage. Increase your wattage or the number of lighting fixtures in any given room to solve the problem.
If you are a smoker, consider quitting. Although most people know it damages the lungs and heart, most don't know that their eyes will suffer too. Most smokers have an increased proclivity for eye disease. You may still be able to lower your risk of eye problems by quitting in the very near future.
