We’ve been told by our grandmothers to always eat squash and carrots to avoid eye defects at an early age. Mine often scolded me if she saw me out in the scorching sun without a cap or a visor. She said that I’ll thank her later, and now I do. I know now – at 40 years old and with perfect vision – how vital taking care of our vision is.
Hi! I’m back with more of my best friend’s organic and natural remedies for her eye health. In the first part, I discussed a few herbs, fruits and vegetables that she claimed were effective in preventing many eye conditions, including glaucoma and macular degeneration, which are common in the elderly.
Now that I’m 40 and experiencing some visual problems, I realize how important it is to take care of our eyes. My best friend who is a bit older than me has been doing organic for years, and this she says has tremendously helped her maintain good eye health care, as well as mental and physical health care. She also utilizes the herbs in her garden to add to her food, not only for enhanced flavor but also for the prevention of eye problems. Regarding vision problems, clinical psychologist Dr. Lori Pyter, Ph.D. explains that, “It’s how your eyes work together, not just whether you can see what’s in front of you.”

Facts About Blurred Vision
Blurry vision is not uncommon to anyone. It can be a sequela of many things, including stroke, diabetes, and aging, among others. However, it is vital to determine the real reason why your vision becomes unclear.
“Sight is such a valued sense, but there are still a lot of problems that fall through the cracks,” says Rajiv Shah, MD.
Perhaps none of us has ever been spared of one or two eye problems in a year. We may have experienced watery or painful eyes that we want so much to get rid of. Or we can’t get out of the room because there’s pressure inside our eyeballs that we just feel like they’re going to pop out.
What is “Screen Time?”
Screen time is defined as the number of hours an individual spends looking at the computer, smartphone, or tablet.
The Vision Council reports that approximately 72% of American parents complain about their children being absorbed with their tablets and computers 2 hours daily. At least that’s what parents see – what about the hours when their parents are not around? One can only imagine how much more than 2 hours kids actually spend on their screens in a day!
There are a lot of diseases that affect our eyes without any warning. That is why it is imperative that we visit our eye doctor so he can determine the onset of an eye condition before it even progresses. He is more than capable of evaluating and assessing your visual status so that you have an idea of what needs to be maintained and what changes need to be done to avoid eye damage.
