eye health is a reflection of your body health. So control any medical diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, cholesterol, vitamin deficiencies, malnutrition, etc.

In brief: Hard question

If you are aware of any eye disorder you may have, you need to seek treatment of it.
Same if you have a disease/disorder that may affect your eyes (hypertension/diabetes). You may also want to consider to keep a healthy environment for your eyes, meaning you want to avoid situations in which your eyes may be exposed to injury, contact with hazardous substances etc.
