NUTRITION FOR HEALTHY EYES
Research suggests that antioxidants and other important nutrients may reduce the risk of cataracts and macular degeneration. Specific antioxidants can have additional benefits as well; for example, Vitamin A protects against blindness and Vitamin C may play a role in preventing or alleviating glaucoma.
Omega-3 essential fatty acids appear to help the eye in a variety of ways, from alleviating symptoms of dry eye syndrome to guarding against macular damage. - Dr. Gary Heiting, OD
Beta-carotene, when taken in combination with zinc & Vitamins C and E, may reduce the progression of macular degeneration.
Bioflavonoids may also help guard against cataracts and macular degeneration. You can find bioflavonoids in tea, red wine, citrus fruits, blueberries, cherries, legumes and soy products.
COMMUNITY SERVICE: As the holidays approach, we will be helping the Ellettsville school system to teach their students about the lifeline of caring, by helping them with their service-learning project to help those in need. We are asking all of our patients through the month of November and first part of December to join us in helping as well. Please bring in donations of food and household items that will be distributed to struggling families within the school system.
We will also be providing complimentary eye exams for veterans the entire month of November. You must present your DD214 at the appointment. Give us a call to schedule a time!
