What we feed our bodies feeds our eyes.

Many of the vitamins and minerals in our bodies are found in much higher concentrations in our eyes, so a diet lacking in these vitamins and minerals can lead to vision problems as we grow older.

Take the time every day to give your eyes (and the rest of your body) the nutritive support they need.

Eat the foods and take the supplements that provide the antioxidant vitamins and minerals your eyes require.

You’ll Protect Your Eyesight, ensuring years of good eye health, and increasing the odds that you’ll avoid blindness or vision loss for the rest of your life.

Do You Have a Vision Story That You Can Share?

I need your help.

I have a page on this website that is for my readers to tell their Eyesight story. My hope was to have people tell their story so it might help someone else with the same problem or experience.

But lately there has not been any activity on this page. Could you please look at this page and contribute someone if you can.

Thank You

How You Got Your Baby Blues


Have you ever wondered why your sister has hazel eyes but yours are blue?

If you're expecting, you may be trying to guess your baby's eye color based on the eye color of grandparents and other family members. This month, in honor of Mother's Day, we take a look at eye color inheritance, which is a bit more complicated than we may have learned in high school. So the next time someone says to you, "You have your mother's eyes," you can reply, "Well, I certainly have her alleles."

How is eye color determined?

Eye color is a physical trait that is determined by the pairing of genes from both parents. Scientists used to think that a single gene pair following dominant and recessive inheritance patterns was responsible for this trait. Now they know there are at least three gene pairs controlling human eye color.

How do people get hazel or gray eyes?

The two-gene model cannot account for hazel or gray eyes, nor can it explain how it is possible for two brown-eyed parents to have a blue- or green-eyed child. It also provides no ready explanation for the rich multiplicity of eye shades, from cocoa-colored brown to teal blue to sage green.

This suggests the existence of other genes, yet to be discovered, that determine eye color or modify the expression of the known eye color genes. Or perhaps mutations or other factors are also involved in eye color inheritance.

What about people who have two different-colored eyes?

The condition of having two irises of different colors is called heterochromia iridium, which is a rare hereditary trait.

Heterochromia iridium can also be caused by trauma to the eye, or eye diseases and the medications used to treat them (such as that for glaucoma), which increase or decrease the pigmentation of one eye. The musician David Bowie, actress Kate Bosworth, and actor Joe Pesci all have this condition.

While we're on the topic of Moms and eyes...

"Is it true that if you cross your eyes, they'll stay that way forever?"

No, this is a myth. But please don't sit so close to the TV! :-)

Happy Mother's Day from all of us at Protect Your Eyesight.com

Vision Facts of the Month

A study published in March 2001 warns that mountain climbers who have had LASIK surgery should be aware of possible changes in their vision at high altitudes. The lack of oxygen at high altitudes causes temporary changes in the thickness of the cornea.
