Posted on 3rd Dec 2018 04:00:00 in Vision & Eye Health, Wellness & Well-being

Most likely you’ve sat through oodles of those television commercials and infomercials touting one prescription drug or another that can relieve sufferers of some highly annoying (or worse) condition, whether it be high cholesterol, an overactive bladder, or erectile dysfunction, among others. Don’t you love it when the announcer then gives you a rapid-fire list of possible side effects that, cumulatively, sound less desirable than the condition being treated.

Posted on 14th Nov 2018 12:00:00 in Vision & Eye Health, Wellness & Well-being

Ginkgo has a sterling reputation as a plant-based supplement that can help people think, literally. It’s best known for its potential to enhance memory and clear up brain fog, and it has even shown some positive benefits for Alzheimer’s patients who otherwise see a steady decline of their cognitive abilities. It gets better, though, as ginkgo has also shown health benefits in numerous other areas as well, mainly in regard to improved blood flow and how that plays out well in so many aspects of your health.

Keep an Eye on Your Eyes! May Is Healthy Vision Month

Posted on 25th May 2018 06:17:09 in Vision & Eye Health

If you have a vision problem… would you know it? That’s one of the questions the National Eye Institute is putting before the public this May for Healthy Vision Month. According to the National Eye Institute, “More than 23 million Americans age 18 and older have never had an eye exam.” 

Why?

They don’t think they have an eye problem. It makes sense. If you feel like you see well – or “good enough” – why get your eyes checked? If nothing noticeable has changed, why schedule an extra appointment?

Nutrition Plays Key Role in Vision and Eye Health

Posted on 11th Jul 2017 11:00:00 in Vision & Eye Health

Vision and eye health are things many of us take for granted, until we suffer an impairment or accident that results in at least some loss of sight. Then we realize how vital our vision and eye health are to us. Proper eye care entails not only wearing protection, such as when mowing the lawn or being outdoors in bright sunlight, but also eating the right foods and using the right nutritional supplements as needed to bolster eye health.

What Are the Health Problems Linked to Vitamin A Deficiency?

Posted on 5th Jun 2017 11:00:00 in Vitamins & Minerals, Vision & Eye Health

Vitamin A, a fat-soluble vitamin (the first such vitamin discovered, in 1913, per emedicine.medscape.com) that also is a potent antioxidant, is an essential part of our daily diet, in large part because it is not manufactured by the human body. Our body depends on us to supply it with Vitamin A through what we eat. Vitamin A is important for maintaining the health of our eyes and eyesight, healthy and clear skin, proper bone growth, facilitating cell differentiation and supporting our immune system against infections, especially in the mucous membranes for the digestive, respiratory and urinary tracts.

Seven Essential Minerals for the Human Body

Posted on 19th May 2017 12:00:00 in Food & Nutrition, Heart & Cardiovascular Health, Vision & Eye Health, Immune System, Wellness & Well-being

We humans and our bodies have a nifty reciprocal arrangement. We, of course, need our bodies to do the things we want and need to do in our lives, such as getting around, performing our jobs and skipping rope, just for starters. In turn our bodies need for us to take care of them by feeding them with nutrients that they are unable to produce for themselves. Those nutrients include the inorganic substances found in foods, known as minerals.

Posted on 1st Feb 2017 12:00:00 in Vision & Eye Health

January is Glaucoma Awareness Month: Get Those Eyes Checked

There are about four million people in America (and 60 million worldwide, per glaucoma.org) who have glaucoma, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and about half of those that have it don't even know it.

At Home, the Eyes Have It

Posted on 28th Oct 2016 09:00:00 in Vision & Eye Health

Look around you. You’re off to a good start, if you can do that easily and without pain. Most likely that means your eyesight is working fine, that your eyes are uninjured and that neither eye is hurting, stinging or otherwise in pain. Let’s talk about trying to keep it that way.

Children's Eyesight Merits Full Observation

Posted on 19th Aug 2015 06:00:00 in Vision & Eye Health

At this time of year, with another school year blasting off across America, parents and students are scurrying around on a scavenger hunt for school supplies, shopping for new clothes, getting sports physicals and updating immunizations. Languishing in fifth place, or worse, on that list is a thorough eye examination, which is ironic, because without properly administered eye care, students can get lost in a visually-focused classroom.

School technology keeps changing in order to stay current with society, but the need for good eyesight free from lazy eye (amblyopia), crossed eyes (strabismus), color deficiency (color blindness) and refractive errors (nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism), as described by hap.org (Health Alliance Plan, Michigan) doesn't change.

The Eyes Have It for the Fourth of July

Posted on 30th Jun 2015 00:00:00 in Vision & Eye Health

All eyes will be on fireworks displays accompanying Fourth of July celebrations across America this week. The hope is that all those eyes will be intact and unharmed by the end of the countless fireworks displays – professional and homebound – that will dazzle millions weaned on and wowed over the years by bottle rockets, Roman candles, sparklers and firecrackers.

Watching professionally-engineered fireworks from a distance is safe, for the most part; the danger comes in buying your own fireworks to shoot off in your backyard, on a porch or patio, on the front lawn or even out in the street. According to preventblindness.org, fireworks-related injuries accounted for 11,400 emergency-room visits in 2013. There also were eight non-occupational fireworks-related deaths in the same year, based on U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission data.

Vision Health

Posted on 13th May 2015 16:06:23 in Vision & Eye Health

We all know how consuming carrots is supposed to be good for our eyesight. We also can be fairly confident we won't turn orange by eating carrots, especially lots of carrots, which deserve a pat on the back for how good a snack they make. Even better news is knowing that plenty of edibles other than carrots also deserve a mention for their visual-health properties.

Eyes on the Prize

Posted on 15th Jan 2015 13:30:35 in Vision & Eye Health

As we age, we tend to focus on wrinkles and gray hairs, or listen more carefully to creaky joints and tired muscles. Eye health is often something we think about only if there's a noticeable change: the fine print is fuzzy or road signs are harder to see. Many people, even those with a history of 20/20 eyesight, experience changes in their vision or find they need corrective lenses once they enter their 30s and 40s.
