Health is wealth is an often quoted proverb yet we don’t realize its importance truly. We can enjoy the colors of life only as long as we are healthy and fit. We are connected with life via our 5 basic senses. Among which the most important one is the sight. Yes, it’s our eyes because of which we can appreciate the beauty of nature and do our daily chores comfortably. Just imagine for a while, what if we lose our sight? A complete blackout! We just can’t imagine our life like this. It would be nearly impossible to live. Therefore, the eyes are no less than a blessing and we should take proper care of them.
