How To Naturally Support Your Eye Health, At Any Age

Our eyes are our connection to the world, so taking good care of them is recommended to ensure optimal eye health.

Fortunately, there are several nutrients and supplements that can help to keep your eyes healthy. Here are some of our top nutrient recommendations…

 

Astaxanthin

Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant found in microalgae and is linked to many health benefits, including improved vision.

Studies have shown that Astaxanthin can reduce oxidative stress, improve vision clarity and acuity, reduce eyestrain, and protect against age-related macular degeneration. Astaxanthin also works synergistically with other carotenoids, such as Lutein and Zeaxanthin, to provide even more excellent eye protection. [1]

 

Lutein & Zeaxanthin

Lutein and Zeaxanthin are two carotenoids found naturally in foods such as eggs, leafy greens such as spinach or kale, oranges, corn, squash, broccoli and certain types of fish such as salmon or tuna.

These carotenoids are essential for good vision since they filter out blue light from digital devices such as smartphones or computers, which can cause damage over time. [2]

Lutein and Zeaxanthin may also help prevent age-related macular degeneration (AMD) by reducing inflammation in the retina. Research has suggested that supplementing with Lutein and Zeaxanthin may reduce the risk of AMD by up to 20%. 

 

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fats that play an important role in maintaining overall eye health. They have been linked to reduced inflammation throughout the body and improved blood flow to the eyes which can help keep clear vision even into old age. [3]

Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in foods such as salmon and other fatty fish, walnuts, flax seeds and chia seeds. Additionally, omega-3s have been linked to improved mental clarity, so it’s a great way to keep your mind sharp while supporting your eye health simultaneously! [4]

When it comes to protecting our eyes from damage caused by ageing or overexposure to digital screens from our phones or computers, there are several nutrients we should include in our diets regularly to support healthy vision into old age, like Astaxanthin, Lutein & Zeaxanthin, and Omega-3 fatty acids among others.

Taking a daily multivitamin containing these ingredients can make a difference in protecting your eyesight! By taking steps now to look after your eyes, you’ll be able to enjoy clear vision well into old age!

Alongside these nutrients, we also recommend following a healthy diet and lifestyle plan outlined in the ‘Helping Eye Disease, By The Book’ that can provide detailed guidance and enable you to find natural relief for a wide range of eye health conditions.

 

PINHOLE GLASSES 

Pinhole glasses are eyeglasses with lenses that have many tiny holes filling an opaque sheet of plastic. When worn, they can block indirect rays of light from entering the eye. This prevents the rays from distorting your vision.

As these pinhole glasses let less light into your eye, they may be able to allow you to see more clearly.

People mainly wear pinhole glasses to improve conditions such as myopia, otherwise known as nearsightedness. Other people also wear them to try and improve astigmatism.

Eye healthcare providers may also use pinhole glasses as a diagnostic tool. As an occluder, pinhole glasses are useful for clinical testing of visual acuity. 

With continued use, wearing pinhole glasses for short periods of time may help to strengthen your eye muscles , even if the effects are only temporary. They are not to safe to wear while driving or operating machinery, but for everyday home use, they may have benefits for obtaining clearer vision.
