Healthy Sight is a way of life that enhances your everyday vision while preserving the well being of your eyes.
Having healthy eyes is understanding how lifestyle, diet and personal habits can affect the way you see — today and tomorrow.
Healthy sight means getting regular checkups. Eye health means wearing the correct prescription if corrective lenses or contacts are needed. It means knowing how to protect your eyes from glare, from the sun’s harmful UV rays, from the hazards of extreme activities.
Healthy sight means protecting your children’s vision as well.
Healthy body. Healthy habits. Healthy eyes. Healthy sight.
Your eyes are a part of your body. Some of the same healthy habits that protect your general health also promote healthy eyesight:
- Eating a balanced diet rich in fiber, fruits and vegetables.
- Drinking water to hydrate your body and your eyes.
- Not smoking, and avoiding long-term smoke exposure.
- Wearing ultraviolet (UV) protection.
- Considering appropriate vitamin supplements.
Antioxidants such as vitamins C and E and carotenoids such as Lutein and Zeaxanthin have shown some promise in research studies at reducing the risk and progression of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
