While it seems the pressure is on all of us these days to place more emphasis on healthier lifestyle choices, if you suffer from an eye disease or are undergoing vision therapy, your lifestyle and diet play an important role in improving your eye wellness.
This is especially true if you are diabetic, where deviating too frequently from your ideal blood sugar levels can have significant impacts on your visual acuity in the form of diabetic retinopathy.
The benefits of good nutrition when it comes to physical fitness, cardiovascular health, or weight management are well understood by most people. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said when it comes to people’s understanding of how nutrition impacts their eyes.
If you are developing Glaucoma or Age-Related Macular Degeneration, you likely already know the role nutrition plays in slowing the progression of the disease.
During a wellness assessment, we leverage the advanced diagnostic tools available to us in order to get a clear picture of what’s happening with your eyes and what direction to take to influence positive changes.
We will provide you with information and guidance with respect to which changes needed to be made and how to make them.
Our interest is first and foremost on your quality of life. In that regard, we encourage you to ask questions and cultivate a genuine interest in your eyes and your health overall.
For many of our patients, the hardest part of adapting to new changes is that initial push. We will help you throughout the process, providing the right information and guidance needed to help you realize the tremendous benefits associated with a healthier lifestyle.
We understand that your life is yours to live, and we respect the decisions our patients make. Our sole focus is on your overall eye health, and in providing you with the best optical care we can.
