Pilot eyes aren’t really even an eye thing, but more the exceptional way they process visual input in the parietal and occipital lobes. I suspect, but don’t have anything to support my thinking, this is probably something that’s largely set early in life.

Well, do the following:

1. Exercise regularly. Your vision is connected to your general health. Diseases like hypertension and diabetes can reduce your vision, in fact they can lead to blindness. So exercising regularly will help your body and your eyes as well.

2. Watch that weight!

3. Do not read with dim light. Although the pupil will adjust the amount of light coming through the eyes by dilating thus enabling you to see, it is not really advisable.

4. Vitamin A supplements will help if you have problems with night vision. But if your vision is perfectly okay, eat green and leafy vegatables and fruits as well. These will provide for you good source of vitamin A which is very important for the eye.

5. Wear those sunglasses to protect your eyes from harm rays of the sun as well as from dust and wind. But be sure your lenses are with UV protection.

6. If your vision is not very clear and sometimes you have dizziness or headache, visit your eye doctor you may need spectacles. And if you are wearing one it is recommended to see your doctor every six months to have an assessment of your visual condition.

7. The nerve (oculo-motor nerve) that supply your (ocular branch) eyes also supply the teeth through its mandibular branch. Therefore check those teeth also, any problems with your teeth will also affect your vision.

8. When swimming, wear those goggles. Some people may have put more chlorine to the water. Better to be safe.

9. When you read, try to make the eye and the reading object in a distance of 40 cm. This will help your eyes to relax. Because the nearer is the reading object the greater is the effort to see it clearly.

10. Avoid exposure to too much light. While the light is the main reason why we see, excessive light can be harmful to eyes also.

11. If you have dry eyes there are many eye lubricants available in the market.

I hope these help…
