EYES AND NUTRITION

It’s not necessary to point out how important your eyes are to the quality of your life. They are your windows to the world—without good vision reading is difficult; your favorite television shows provide diminished satisfaction and hobbies become less enjoyable. 

As you’ll see in the attached bulletin from All About Vision, nutrition plays a large part in your overall eye health. The prevention of macular and lens degeneration and conditions causing “dry eye” become more and more necessary as our eyes mature. 

There are things that you can do now to slow down and possibly reverse some of the risks associated with your vision. A proper diet can provide some of the protection you need to preserve your valuable sight. Antioxidants and other important nutrients can help reduce sight-robbing conditions and disease. An open relationship with your ophthalmologist can help you avoid some of the risks can help you identify the proper levels of vision supplements you can be taking to make up for the nutrients that you may be missing in your diet.  

Things like beta-carotene, bioflavonoids, lutiein, zeaxanthin, omega-3 fatty acids, selenium, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, and zinc are some of the nutrients you should be aware of that should be included in your diet and supplements that you are taking daily. In general, include at least two servings of fish and plenty of colorful fruits and vegetables in your diet.

You will likely find that is often difficult to get all of what you need through diet alone. That is why I use supplementation of a highly pure and effective line of vision directed vitamins and minerals to assure my good ocular health.
