May is Healthy Vision Month
May 7, 2019
Do you extend your arms when reading a menu? Or bring the newspaper closer to you? Declining vision may be a sign of aging, but eating the right foods may help improve your vision:
- Vitamin C may help with slowing macular degeneration and reducing the risk of cataracts and glaucoma. Vitamin C can be found in oranges, cantaloupe, bell peppers, and broccoli.
- Vitamin A may lower your risk for cataracts, corneal ulcers, and could help with seeing better in the dark. Vitamin A is found in carrots, sweet potatoes, and spinach.
- Vitamin E may help reduce the risk of macular degeneration and cataracts. Vitamin E is found in almonds, sunflower seeds, avocado, and blackberries.
It’s best to schedule a regular appointment.
