EyeSight Vision Care
April 10, 2011
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.

Myths Regarding Vision
There are many Myths Regarding Vision that exist from ancient times. These are passed down through generations, from parents to their children.
This article talks about several vision-related myths so you know what's fact - and what's fiction.
TRUE or FALSE? It's bad for your eyes if you sit close to the TV...
This statement was true before the 1950s, when televisions emitted radiation that could cause Eyesight Problems after long and repeated exposure. Today, this is FALSE. Modern TVs have a shield that protects you from radiation.
TRUE or FALSE? If you read in low light, your eyesight will get worse...
The answer to this is once again FALSE. Low light does not cause eyesight to get worse, but it can cause Eye Stress. It is hard to focus on reading material and see small print in good detail when light is poor. As a result, your eyes must work extra hard to process the words on the page, straining your eye's muscles. Eye strain can cause itching, soreness, and headaches. However, these symptoms are temporary and will not cause your vision to get worse.
TRUE or FALSE? You don't need an eye exam if you see well...
This is the most dangerous vision myth because there are eye conditions that can go undetected without a comprehensive Eyesight Test from an eye doctor, so the answer is FALSE. Your eye doctor will screen you for conditions such as Diabetes or brain tumors - both serious medical problems that can go a long time undetected because there are no obvious symptoms.
TRUE or FALSE? Eating carrots can improve eyesight...
While this statement may help parents to get their children to eat Vegetables for Eye Health, it is actually FALSE. Carrots will not Improve Your Eyesight, but they can help protect it. The vitamin A in carrots can reduce the risk of age-related Macular Degeneration and Cataracts.
