Eye Wellness and Nutrition

Looking at Your Diet, Lifestyle, and Eye Wellness

Your Lifestyle Can Have a Greater Impact On Your Wellness Than You Realize

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 acquity in the form of diabetic retinopathy.

Looking at Eye Wellness Holistically

Nutrition is important

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 peoples 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.

Guided by state of the art Optical technology

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.

Education goes a long way

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.

The benefits of life and nutritional wellness are numerous and hard to ignore

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 the best optical care we can.

NTOC Testimonials

  • Since 2004, Dr. Peacock and Dr. Amarnath of NTOC have very capably managed my eye care needs in conjunction with my Ophthalmologist. As a regular patient at their clinic, I can attest to their competence and to their hightech equipment. The NTOC Optometrists have an excellent working relationship with the two Ophthalmologists who have privileges at Stevenson Memorial Hospital. This is so important to their patients who are determined to require the next level of eye care. Their staff are very pleasant, friendly and helpful. NTOC is a great place to entrust your eyes.

    J.J. Paul Whiteside, CMA, FCMA, Alliston

  • Dr. Amarnath and Dr. Peacock have been more than accommodating under both our planned and emergency situations. NTOC always provides flexible options and they are always happy to see us. Each visit is a very positive experience. The services and products they provide are comprehensive, but not high-pressured, and they provide service and guarantees that are much higher than industry standards. We totally enjoy and appreciate being their patients and recommend NTOC without reservation.

    Maryann & Gordon Foy, Alliston

  • When I experienced a serious eye condition in 2006, I was very impressed with the knowledge, expertise, and quick response by Dr. Amarnath and his team at NTOC. I was referred to an eye specialist the very same day, and my follow-up care was thorough and efficient, even to this day. This team works with absolute professionalism, and I would highly recommend them to my family and friends.

    Gregg Fullarton, Cookstown

  • I have been a patient of Dr. Peacock since 2002, and find him to be very competent and thorough. Dr.Peacock genuinely listens to any concerns I have about my eyes, and takes the time to enquire with interest about my family. His team is always pleasant, polite and helpful, making me feel very comfortable when I visit the clinic.

    Patricia Murphy, New Tecumseth

  • I was very impressed with my first visit. From the moment I walked in, the staff was more than friendly and she did her best to explain procedures and tests that would be done today. I am a very nervous eye patient and Dr. Peacock did everything to ease my tensions and explain all procedures. When choosing my glasses, I felt very confident in her suggestions and was very pleased with the time taken to ensure the correct choice and fit. All in all, I am thrilled with my choice of optometrist office. And, I look forward to my next visit. Something I have never experienced before. Thank you.
