Did You Know?

Did you know that you could be going blind and not even know it? That's what glaucoma does. It sneaks up on you very slowly over time. It's a leading cause of blindness in all adults over 60. But some people are especially at risk. If you're Black and over 40, you're up to five times more likely to get glaucoma. Or if you have a family history of glaucoma, you're also at high risk. Glaucoma can't be cured, but it can be controlled and the risk of blindness reduced-if glaucoma is detected and treated in time. That's why it's so important for people with an increased risk to have regular eye exams. Seattle glaucoma specialist, Howard Barnebey, MD is one of a very small group of local eye doctors dedicated to glaucoma and helping patients with this terrible eye disease.

Everyone has heard that they should be eating more carrots to improve their eyesight. This is because of the high levels of beta-carotene that is found in carrots which is said to be essential in maintaining healthy eyes. There are actually quite a few different vitamins and nutrients that are considered to be good for your eye health.

Here are 5 other vitamins and nutrients that you should consider adding to your daily intake:

Zeaxanthin and Lutein:
These are considered to be important nutrients for your eye health and can be easily added to your diet through the addition of leafy green vegetables and eggs. Quite a few studies have been done that point to a diet with ample lutein and zeaxanthin reducing your risks of developing chronic eye disease, such as age-related macular degeneration and cataracts.

Vitamin C: Found primarily in fruits and vegetables, Vitamin C is an antioxidant. Studies suggest that vitamin C can lower your risk of developing cataracts and taken in conjunction with other vitamins and nutrients it is said to slow the progression of age-related macular degeneration.

Vitamin E: Considered to be a strong antioxidant, vitamin is found in high concentrations in nuts and sweet potatoes. Studies suggest that vitamin E helps to protect cells in your eyes from free radicals that can cause damage to your eyes fragile tissue.

Essential Fatty Acids:
These are fats that are considered to be an important part of our diets. These fats are said to fuel our cells, boost our immune system and even maintain our nervous system. Studies show that omega-3 fatty acids are also considered to be important in maintaining proper eye health and retinal function. Fatty such, such as salmon are great sources of omega-3 fatty acids.

Zinc: This mineral is considered to play an essential role in transferring vitamin A from our liver to our retinas, which produces melanin—a pigment that helps to protect our eyes. Zinc concentrates heavily in our eyes, but predominantly in the retina. Studies suggest that ensuring you are receiving ample amounts of zinc in your daily diet will help to protect the inner workings of your eye.
