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.
If you smoke, you have up to a five times greater risk of AMD. Quit today.
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.
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.
Sunlight may increase your chance of developing AMD, so always wear a pair of sunglasses when you’re outdoors.
