But alcohol consumption damages your vision.
So when does moderate use become heavy consumption?
Heavy alcohol consumption damages your vision in the following ways.
- It affects your liver, which converts beta-carotene into Vitamin A. This vitamin is an essential part of good vision.
- Alcoholics don’t eat well and become malnourished. They don’t eat balanced diets. And most of the nutrients in the foods they do eat are destroyed by the chemical imbalances in their bodies.
- Intoxication also creates short-term problems, including night blindness, Double Vision, and accommodation paralysis (the inability of your eyes to bring both near and far images into focus).
Heavy alcohol consumption is often a way of avoiding personal problems.
Attending meetings with Alcoholics Anonymous or seeing a therapist can help you cope with these problems in a more effective manner, and lower your need to drink heavily.
If you don’t want to give up drinking completely, consider one glass of wine daily.
