Save Your Vision With These Simple Tricks
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
The eyes are the widows to the soul.
Too bad (for many of us) those “windows” get dirty as we age.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) 3.3 million adults have poor vision or are blind.
While that is a big number, the CDC suggests that over 61 million are at risk of vision loss in the coming years – especially seniors.
If you do nothing to take care of your eyes, you risk joining those 61 million people.
But you don’t have to be one of the unlucky ones – there is a lot you can do to protect your eyes as you grow older.
One of strange things about eye health is that you can lose a lot of your vision and your brain “fills in” the missing parts.
While this sounds strange, people who lose the center of their vision often don’t find out until it’s too late – because of this filling-in effect of the brain.
The same is true of cataracts and other types of vision loss: they occur so slowly that we adapt and barely notice the changes.
Those 61 million people mentioned above are mostly going to lose their sight through macular degeneration or cataracts (or both).
This is good news (in a way) because you can prevent macular degeneration and cataracts by taking a few easy steps and getting the proper nutrition for your eyes.
If you have a hard time reading, or seeing at night or in dim light – then you should act now to prevent those conditions from getting worse.
Dr. Scott’s Pathway to Perfect Eye Health:
- Sunglasses do keep harmful sun ultraviolet rays off your eyes: IF THEY ARE GOOD SUNGLASSES. Cheap sunglasses increase damage to the eye by opening the iris – which allows much more damaging light into the back of the eye (macula). Look for sunglasses that block out 99 to 100 percent of both UV-A and UV-B radiation.
- Blood sugar is one of the chief drivers of cataract formation. Sugar binds permanently with proteins in the eye – causing them to become cloudy. Keep your blood sugar low by taking supplements like berberine to balance blood sugar and by eating well.
- Lutein and zeaxanthin are important pigments that support the health of the macula. It is very hard to get any amount of these nutrients through your diet, so I always recommend a supplement.
Health and Happiness,
Dr. Scott Olson
