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.
