I guess eating carrots is a good way to protect your eyesight. I dont know what to do other than that. Going to the eye doctor on a regular basis is also a good way to protect your eyesight. I would make sure I always get plenty of rest and do the above. That should help protect your eyesight.

I have been blessed with 20/20 vision so i never really had to deal with the glasses or contact ordeal.

Depending on the exercise you are doing, can you wear a pair of sunglasses over your contacts to protect them? You can also get some goggles but they are usually uncomfortable and make the face hot. I have also worn glasses since I was about 8 years old. When older, I started wearing contact lenses. I can see much better with contacts even today. When I am outside doing something and need to protect my eyes, I do wear sunglasses.

thx,i'll buy sunglasses later. today i found the vision of wearing contact lens is much wider than those thick glasses cause i've worn glasses for nearly a month solid.

I do not wear glasses. To protect your eyes you should avoid watching too much of television. More over you should also avoid sleeping late.

Hi friend, i have been using my glasses since by high school. I like to wear glasses too. My left eye 1.75 and right 2.00. It changes within one year. I know some yoga masters are teaching some exercises for short sight. I don't have a clear about that.

I am extremely near-sighted. Glasses don't help my problem, because it has to do wih my rain. I just do what I can, and I rely on my memory to get me by.

I am also short-sighted, but I seldom wear glasses. I can recognize people 5 meters away and it is enough for me, so I take off my glasses. I believe wear glasses for a long time will make my short-sight worse even though i really don't know if it reasonable.
