That’s what Piolo shared with media friends during the launch of “Seeing the World Better,” a public awareness campaign on the importance of good vision organized by Essilor, the world leader in vision solutions.

According to Piolo, “In my line of work as an actor, it is very important to read your co-actor’s facial  cues properly in a dialogue, and you can only accomplish it  with good eyesight,” he shared. “That is why eye care is a serious matter for me. Without good vision, we can only do so much, and this limitation can stand in the way of achieving our goals,” he added. Here,  Essilor’s  brand ambassador shares some important tips for healthy eyes:

Keep your eyeglasses on. “I am fond of surfing the internet through my mobile device,but I have learned that the blue light from electronic devices can harm our eyesight, so I always wear my eye lenses on,” Piolo shared. Harmful blue light is a risk factor for the onset  of  age-related  macular  degeneration,  a  deterioration  of  the  part  of  the  retina responsible  for  sharp,  central  vision.  To  prevent  its  damaging  effect,  eye  doctors recommend wearing lenses that effectively blocks the harmful blue light. Reading in a dark room should also be avoided. With only your mobile device as your main light, the glare on the screen can cause eye strain.

Follow a healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet.  Eating a healthy, nutritious diet  is beneficial to our eyes. Vitamins C, A and E, folic acid, selenium and zinc, which are present in fruits and vegetables, can make your eyes healthy. Have a daily dose of fruits and vegetables like grapes carrots, spinach, kale, or collard greens, for a clearer, better vision.

Keeping a healthy lifestyle can also be helpful to your eyes, and your overall health. Piolo, who is a known triathlete, maintains a healthy lifestyle by engaging in sports like swimming, biking and running. By maintaining healthy weight, it reduces the chance of getting eye diseases. According to National Eye Institute, being overweight or obese increases your risk of developing diabetes and other systemic conditions, which can lead to vision loss, such as diabetic eye disease or glaucoma.

Visit your optometrist regularly  Piolo shared that he has 20/20 vision, but despite having perfect eyesight, he regularly sees an eye doctor to make sure his eyes are in good condition. Regular visits to an eye doctor are very important because it can pickup early  signs of  eye conditions.  You need not  wait  for  symptoms like  headaches,dizziness, nausea and cloudy vision before visiting your optometrist. At the same time,eye  check-ups  may  also  detect  most  diseases,  such  as  diabetes,  arthritis,  heart diseases, and even certain cancers, and can help cure or prevent these diseases from worsening over time. Make an appointment with your eye doctor once a year to keep your eyes and whole body healthy.

There  you  have  it  —  Straight  from the  man  whose  expressive,  healthy  eyes  have captivated legions of admirers. By simply keeping these tips in mind, we can keep our precious peepers looking good and healthy and be able to perform our daily activities the best way we can.
