Let’s give our eyes extra loving care so that we can enjoy clear vision even as we grow old.
People ages 40 years old and above often suffer from age-related health problems like near vision blurriness. Our eyes work long hours and we should nourish them properly. Having clear vision allows us to have happy moments with the people we love.
- Eat healthy food for healthy vision.
Aside from Vitamin A which sharpens eyesight, nutrients such as Omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin C and E can help ward off age-related vision problems for adults like cataracts. Eating a well-balanced diet can also help prevent other health problems such as Diabetes, which is the number one cause of blindness among adults.
- Avoid excessive exposure to unhealthy blue lights.
At this age of technology, we are being exposed to harmful blue lights from gadgets, laptops and monitors. Too much exposure can cause vision problems such as Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD). Limit your time in front of the screen and break every now and then.
- Get a regular eye check-up.
Regular vision consultation is essential to prevent or detect signs of vision problems.
- Choose the right eyewear.
The right kind of prescription glasses will not only help us see better but will also make your life easier and more convenient, especially as we age.
