As the US population ages, the number of people with eye diseases like cataracts, glaucoma, and age -related macular degeneration (AMD) grows. These diseases cause more than vision loss. They can increase the risk of chronic diseases, accidents, social isolation, and depression.

10 Ways to protect your Sight

Following these lifestyle tips will help you prevent or slow the progress of disease.

STOP SMOKING

If you smoke, you have up to a five times greater risk of AMD. Quit today.

EAT RIGHT

Fill your diet with fruits and veggies, especially dark leafy greens, to protect against AMD.

MAINTAIN A HEALTHY WEIGHT

A high body mass index may increase your risk of cataracts, so watch your weight.

WATCH SUGAR AND REFINED CARBS

Eat whole grains and skip sweets to potentially lower your risk of AMD.

GET AN EXAM

Early detection and treatment will help prevent eye damage due to glaucoma. See your eye doctor regularly.

USE DROPS

Glaucoma eye drops prevent vision loss when used as prescribed, so follow your doctor’s orders.

KNOW YOUR HISTORY

Talk to your doctor if you have a family history of eye disease, which increases your risk.

WEAR SHADES

Sunlight may increase your chance of developing AMD, so always wear a pair of sunglasses when you’re outdoors.

CONTROL YOUR CHOLESTEROL

High cholesterol may boost your doctor about how to lower it.
