Eye Wellness & Nutrition

Your Lifestyle & Diet Play a Huge Role in Your Eye Health

Your Eyes are Sensitive Organs

Eyes are delicate and exposed. Due to their position within our body, and the vital role they play, they are deeply connected to the rest of the body and its state of well being.

You can have a meaningful impact on the health of your eyes through your diet and lifestyle choices. Reducing how long you spend staring at screens, or choosing to eat a more nutritionally balanced diet, can improve eye health immensely.

This is especially true if you are diabetic, where deviating too frequently from your ideal blood sugar levels can have significant impacts on your visual acuity in the form of diabetic retinopathy.

Holistic Eye Care Looks at the Bigger Picture

Many people can benefit from improving their overall wellness. Your eyes are just one of several areas in your life that you will notice improvements.

Diet & Nutrition

There are numerous benefits to enjoying a nutritionally-varied diet. Your eyes enjoy the benefits of a good diet, from improved overall wellness to delaying or mitigating the onset of some eye diseases.

Eye Wellness Guided by Modern Optical Technology

When assessing your eye health, we look at the current clinical state of your eyes (as determined by performing an eye exam) as well as less tangible items, such as exercise, diet, work, stress, and other factors.

How Can Nutrition Impact the Eye?

Statistics suggest that people that eat a well rounded and generally healthy diet are at lower risk for numerous eye diseases – including Dry Eye Disease and and Age-Related Macular Degeneration. Giving your body the fuel it needs to stay running has measurable impacts all over the body- your eyes included.
