General Health Information

Vision is a complex process involving not only the eyes, but also the lenses, eyelids, tear ducts, optic nerve, as well as the electrical impulses from the eye to the brain.  Taking care of our eyes for good vision is more than just getting our eyes checked; that’s only the beginning.  One major contributor to eye problems is a poor diet.  A deficiency of vitamins can lead to various eye problems and vision loss.  Sometimes underlying diseases, such as diabetes or high blood pressure, cause eye damage and vision impairment.  Allergies, lack of sleep, and eye-strain can also affect our eyesight.  Even the normal process of aging takes its toll on good vision; when bifocals or even surgery may be necessary.  The lenses of the eyes may become clouded due to oxidative damage, which ultimately impairs the vision.  Increased pressure within the eyeball, if left unchecked, may even cause blindness. 

Our eyes, as well as all of our other body organs, need optimal nutritional support to prevent problems and maintain peak function.  Supplementing several key nutrients such as vitamin A and beta carotene, can be very beneficial to eye health and  good vision. It is well documented that the antioxidants vitamin E and selenium, along with phytonutrients such as lutein and other carotenoids, help preserve peak visual health.  A life-long practice of adequate supplementation, along with a good diet, helps to avoid the eye problems associated with aging and disease.
