VIEWS FOR 20/20 by Dr. Mark Skowron and Dr. Michelle Skowron PRACTICING GOOD EYE HEALTH In essence, taking good care of your eyes is the same as taking good care of your body by eating healthy and staying active. Keeping your body at a healthy weight decreases your risk of diseases like type 2 diabetes, which is the leading cause of blindness in adults. Eating foods with omega-3 fatty acids, lutein, zinc, and vitamins C and E helps fight age-related vision problems such as macular degeneration and cataracts. Foods to choose include oily fish, leafy greens, eggs, nuts, beans, and citrus fruits. Another way to care for your eyes is to take plenty of screen breaks. Staring at a screen strains the eyes and causes blurry vision, dry eyes, headaches, and problems seeing at a distance. An effective way to look after your health if you use a computer for extended intervals is to make sure you stand up as often as every 10 minutes, look around, and stretch. This will help reduce headaches from eye strain, but also reverse the damage of sitting with poor posture. Whether it's a routine, medical, or even pediatric examination, everyone can find the care they need here at SKOWRON EYE CARE. To schedule an appointment, please call us today. At Skowron Eye Care, our mission is your vision. P.S. Wearing sunglasses to block out UV rays, including on cloudy days, and quitting smoking help lower the risk of developing eye diseases such as cataracts and macular degeneration.
