Our eyesight is so precious. We’re the products of our genetics for sure, but through lifestyle choices, we can make a huge difference in our ability to keep our eyes bright and healthy and maintain excellent vision.
It seems that everything we read these days emphasizes fresh food, real food, to maintain our best health. Our eye health demands no less. We need a broad spectrum of vitamins and minerals for sure, but there are lots of other nutrients that can do our eyes and eyesight so much good.
Beyond our genetics, we expose our eyes to too much sunlight, and many chemical toxins in our water, soap, shampoos, and cosmetics. We stare for hours at a time, at lit up phones or glaring computer screens and tvs. There has been no more difficult era in the history of time for eye strain than now.
Our eyes are under continuous assault. Thankfully, we can do some really simple, healthful things to lessen the strain on them by eating certain whole, healthy foods, using daily, soothing warm compresses, and fun to do specific eye exercises.
I hunted the Web and found an article that I think you’ll find most helpful in spelling out the foods, habits, and fun exercises that can give our eyes and eyesight better health.
Please also note that although our lifestyle choices can greatly help or hurt our eye health, no opinion in an article or blog is a total substitute for a check-up consultation with your eye care professional. There are vision-robbing diseases that can sneak up on us that are not always noticeable at first, so please be sure you get your eyes checked at least once a year.
That said, we’re each in charge and responsible for the lifestyle choices we make to give our eyes the best chance for clear, strong vision and keep them as healthy as we can for as long as we can.
