STAY HEALTHY AND WATCH YOUR WEIGHT

The macula is the center of the retina. Macular degeneration causes vision loss in the center of your field of vision.

STAY HEALTHY AND WATCH YOUR WEIGHT
This can be a tough one, but COVID-19 how is losing weight linked with our eye vision, you ask?

Excess weight is linked to hypertension, high cholesterol and inflammation. All three slow blood flow to the eyes.

Working back the other way, an ophthalmologist can detect those three conditions by examining the blood vessels in the eye.

EAT MORE PRODUCE
Okay, here it is again: Eat more green stuff. We hear this everywhere we turn from many fronts. “Eat this not that.”

We don’t often think that consumption of more produce can help protect the eyes. Maybe you have not thought of that. Yet, it is true.

According to an “Archives of Ophthalmology” study, women who ate 3 or more servings of fruit daily reduced the risk of macular degeneration by 36%. The study reported that antioxidants in fruits and vegetables absorb harmful UV rays in the eyes and plays a regular role in optimal function of the eyes.

Leafy greens such as spinach and kale, yellow corn, persimmons and orange bell peppers are especially helpful.

Take that little extra effort and do what you can and what is necessary to maintain your eyes in top shape. They will reward you for it.

Eric Crider writes on a variety of health issues including eye health.

Here is something to consider:

We all either have, or will experience vision problems at some point in our life. We tend to be more re-active rather than pro-active when it comes to eye care. Not smoking, watching our weight, eating more of certain foods along with some other activities can protect the eyes from disease and our vision from deterioration.
