Drinking chamomile tea, warm milk with nutmeg, or valerian tea can help you get to sleep quickly.

If you have 20/30 vision it only means that you have stand 20 feet away from an object to view what a person with normal vision can see at 30 feet. Most of the time you don't need glasses or contacts for 20/30 vision. However, if you develop any eye strain or headaches, you need correction immediately.
A complex arrangement that involves your inner ear as well as musculoskeletal and visual systems is responsible for maintaining your balance.

If you need the air conditioner set to "just right" all day long, know that there are damaging effects to reckon with. These can range from annoying to potentially risky. Look out for headaches, lethargy, dehydration, and allergies. Air-conditioned spaces may also cause upper respiratory problems or even spread infections like Legionnaires’ disease.
Photokeratitis is a painful eye condition brought on by the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Sunglasses with UV-blocking lenses can protect your eyes. But if the damage is done and you experience eye pain, light sensitivity, and blurred vision, get out of the sun as soon as you can.

If they don’t, get medical help.
Babies usually rub their eyes when they are tired and sleepy. But dry eyes, an eye infection, or a foreign object such as dust or an eyelash in the eye can also make a baby rub the eyes. Another reason might be that babies explore and try to figure out how the eyes respond to being rubbed.
Ticks are the tiny creatures that love to stick around in moist environments. Though tick bites are usually harmless, you can get a rash or a fever with a tick bite.

Or slather some coconut oil onto the exposed parts of your skin.
Castor oil can effectively treat mild to severe dry eyes. It is also anti-inflammatory and is used in the preparation of certain anti-inflammatory eye drops.

Apply with caution since it could have a cytotoxic effect on the eyes.

Long-term complications in some cases include flap issues, dry eyes, over/under correction, bulging of the cornea, infection, and inflammation.
