Visit Lifetime Vision Source

Visiting our professional, experienced optometrists will help ensure the health of your eyes! Here at Lifetime Vision Source, we have the experience and knowledge you need when it comes to diagnosing and treating eye conditions.

Eat a Healthy, Balanced Diet

Your diet has a much larger impact on your eyesight and eye health than most people realize! Eating a healthy diet will not only prove to be beneficial for your overall health but promote healthy eyes as well. You can reduce the likelihood of age-related vision problems such as macular degeneration and cataracts. Eating healthy will lower your odds of obesity and related diseases like type 2 diabetes, a leading cause of blindness in adults.

So what foods are good for your eyes, you ask? Dark, leafy greens such as spinach and kale as well as fish that are high in omega-3 fatty acids such as salmon, tuna, and halibut are great for your eye health.

Don’t Smoke

It is common knowledge that smoking is bad for your lungs and health, but not as many people know that smoking can damage your eyes! Smoking increases your risk of diseases such as macular degeneration and cataracts, among other health complications. It can also harm your optic nerve!

Wear Protective Eyewear

No, we don’t mean you need to wear goggles every second of the day. We recommend wearing sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays. Wearing safety glasses and goggles when you’re playing sports, doing construction work, or completing home and car repairs is a good idea as well.

Blue Light Protection

With work and entertainment increasingly being conducted through a screen or digital device, it is important to take time to protect yourself from harmful blue light exposure. Wearing protective eyewear such as glasses with blue light lenses will help to filter out blue light, reducing eye strain and enhancing the long-term health of your eyes.
