Nutrition for Vision

While most people don't realize it, what you eat can affect how you see! Our eyes are as much a part of our bodies as any other organ, so they are influenced by our nutrition. New research has confirmed that nutrition can make a difference in our eye health. Most affected are conditions of Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), Dry Eye Syndrome, Cataracts and Glaucoma. Dr. Anshel now lectures on these conditions and how to resolve them with proper nutrition.

Nutrition and Vision: Eating Right and Seeing Better

Maintaining proper nutrition for optimum general health is something that we’ve all heard for many years. It makes sense that what we eat affects how our bodies function and survive. However, until recently little has been said about how nutrition affects our eyes and visual system.

Consider that the eyes are as much a part of the body as any other organ. There are literally millions of nerve endings that serve as a part of the visual process. The eye really is an extension of the brain, and while the eye and brain only make up 2% of body weight, they require about 25% of the nutritional input. So proper nutrition of the eyes is important to not only maintain proper vision but also eye health as well.

These articles excerpt Dr. Anshel’s book, “Smart Medicine For Your Eyes” and will discuss various eye conditions that occur and how to deal with them, both conventionally and with nutritional support. Please realize that diagnosing vision conditions requires the expertise of qualified eyecare professionals, so this information is to be used in conjunction with your eye doctor’s efforts. Be sure to work closely with your doctor to assure that all of the steps you are taking are toward achieving the proper goal.

With all of the information we now know about food and how our bodies utilize it, we should be making better choices. However, that isn’t always possible. Our goal with these articles is to provide you with enough information so that you can make informed choices on what you eat. We know that it will make a difference in the long run on how well you see and the overall health of your eyes and your body. Without our health, we have nothing at all.
