Eye Vitamins and Eye Health Promotion

Many systemic diseases can result in changes in our eyes. Diseases like diabetes, hypertension, cholesterol, thyroid conditions, and multiple sclerosis all show signs in our eyes.

The sun emits a lot of ultra-violet light throughout the day and this can cause further ocular complications like Age-Related Macular Degeneration, cataracts, ocular lesions and skin cancers.

Real Eyes Optometry recommends these top 3 tips to drastically improve your eye health:

1.) Consume green, red and orange vegetables. Natural eye vitamins and supplements support a healthy body and eyes. Please ask your Optometrist if eye vitamins are right for you.

2.) Protect your eyes from ultra-violet (UV) light. Wear UV protected lenses, or sunglasses to significantly reduce the amount of damage to your eyes.

3.) Avoid smoking. Smoking enhances the creation of free radicals in your body, which in turn damages the body and can lead to cancer with prolonged exposure. The best way to combat  free radicals created by smoking is to stop smoking altogether, and to increase your daily uptake of anti-oxidants, which can be found in a variety of food types and supplements.
