Keeping Your Eyes Healthy

As we age, our vision tends to deteriorate. In fact, studies show that people over the age of 60 are more prone to developing a wide range of vision disorders like macular degeneration, glaucoma and cataracts.

If theres one thing that you need to take care of, its your eyes. Dont take them for granted. Its never too late to keep them healthy.

For starters, it is important to eat healthy. Vitamin C, lutein and omega-3 are crucial to your eye health. Other nutrients like vitamin E and zinc can also help fend off the onset of age-related vision disorders like cataracts and macular degeneration. You can get these nutrients from salmon and tuna, nuts and beans, eggs, green leafy veggies and citrus fruits.

Do you wear sunglasses when you go outside? The right shades can protect your eyes from harmful UV rays, which can damage the eyes lenses. Prolonged exposure to the dangerous rays can contribute to an increased risk for macular degeneration and cataracts.

If youre working in a possibly dangerous environment such as a woodshop, dont forget to wear safety eyewear or protective goggles. It will protect your eyes from flying debris or airborne materials.

Working for prolonged periods in front of a computer can damage your eyes. Computer eyestrain can cause blurry vision, dry eyes and headaches.
