Eyes can add a lot to your beauty, though we all tend to misuse them in the age of computer, tablets, smart phones, LED TV etc. So, it needs to be addressed for deep-rooted and everlasting results. While severe eye problems like cataract, glaucoma etc. may require surgery, regular take-care of eyes may delay or prevent these age-related problems to a great extent.
