Protect Your Aging Eyes

1309Blindness among the elderly is most commonly caused by age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Luckily, an antioxidant-rich diet can prevent ADM. For optimum eye health, eat deep green, red, orange, and blue varieties of berries and vegetables. Reach for omega-3 and vitamin D to support your eye health even further.*

People with light-colored eyes, or who are obese, or who smoke are at a high risk for developing AMD. Through a series of simple tests, your optometrist can often detect the early signs of macular degeneration, even before your symptoms start showing.
