macular degeneration

The National Eye Institute says data suggests that by the year 2050, the rate of macular degeneration will double. That degeneration is due to many environmental factors, but there is much you can do to counteract them. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Eat well (especially including green foods)
  • Wear sunglasses with UV filters
  • Wear lenses that block the blue light emitted by all electronic devices
  • Exercise
  • Do NOT smoke
  • Get your eyes checked annually by your eye doctor
