Expert Tips From Insight Eye Care

The following laser eye surgery checklist is a good start to help you determine if Lasik is right for you:
1. Your eyes must be healthy.
2. Your cornea must have sufficient thickness.
3. Your pupils must not be overly large.
4. Your prescription must be with in certain limits.
5. You must be over 18 years of age.
6. You must have stable vision for at least a year.
7. You must generally be in good health, if pregnant you should delay surgery.

Here are a few simple steps you can work in to your life that will improve the health of your eyes:

  • Eat leafy greens: Broccoli, spinach, and other dark colored vegetables that contain lutein have been found to reduce the risk of developing cataracts and macular degeneration in some adults.
  • Eat carrots: This vegetable is full of beta-carotene, an antioxidant that helps prevent night blindness and other eye problems.
  • Use vitamins: Take these daily as a preventative step toward healthy eyesight. Vitamins C, E, beta-carotene, copper, and zinc have been proven to slow down the progression of macular degeneration and delay the start of cataracts.
  • Get your antioxidants: Foods high in antioxidants help minimize the effects of damage done by the environment, such as sun exposure. If you are exposed to the sun for long periods of time, it can lead to cataracts or muscular degeneration. Oranges and blueberries are a great supplement to add to your diet.
  • Wear sunglasses: With all of the stylish designer frames available at Instyle Eye Wear, there is no excuse for not having a pair! Extensive UV exposure can lead to cataracts. Our doctors suggest wearing polarized lenses that block out the majority of UV rays and wear a hat to block out any reflections.
  • Load up on Omega-3’s: The Omega-3’s found in some fish help to minimize dry eyes and improve vision. Our doctors suggest using Fish Oil on a daily basis in order to help prevent dry eyes and cataracts.
  • Get your heart rate up: Studies have shown that the benefits of exercise go beyond weight loss. Getting your heart rate up three times a week in 30-minute intervals can reduce the pressure of your eyes, thus reducing your risk of glaucoma.
