Do You See What I See


by Brent Haydey



Healthy eyes and eye sight comes from a healthy lifestyle, at least in part.  Your eyesight, like so many other things, is impacted by the quality of your lifestyle.  Physical INactivity, poor nutrition, and smoking all lead to a number of lifestyle related illnesses including being overweight or obese, diabetes and many others.  These habits themselves and many of the illnesses they lead to can have a direct and detrimental impact on your eye sight.

Our eye sight does tend to diminish with age.  As a result it is very important to have our eyes and eye sight assessed regularly. Specialists recommend an assessment at least every 2 years, perhaps more often if you have concerns or if you have family history of problems.  Check with your doctor for advice.

When I last had my eyes checked I talked with my doctor about PREVENTION.  Many of the problems we experience with our eyes can be prevented with a healthy active lifestyle.

One thing he recommended was healthy nutrition with antioxidants from fruits and veggies and omega 3 fatty acids from fish and other sources.

He also talked about appropriate physical activity that benefits things like diabetes, obesity, and other lifestyle illnesses as being important.

Smoking also has a negative impact on eye health along with every other aspect of our health. Find a way to quit once and for all.

Once again it doesn’t sound like anything complicated in order to deliver the results of Thriving Health.  When was the last time you had your eyes checked?  Are you doing the things you need to do to prevent diseases with your eyes that can limit your Thriving Health?
