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.

    I was born and raised in the Ellettsville area and graduated from Edgewood in 1995. I have 2 daughters, in college. I have been with Hoosier Family Eyecare since January 2006. I am an optometric technician having attended the Optician program at Indiana University's School of Optometry. My job duties consist of scheduling appointments, to checking patients out, and everything needed in between, including filing your insurance. I keep the contact lens inventory as up to date as possible. Most patients can be fitted with contact lenses the day of their exam. We are always taking new patients.
