There’s no substitute for the quality of life good vision offers. Adding certain nutrients to your diet every day - either through foods or supplements - can help save your vision. Researchers have linked eye-friendly nutrients such as lutein/zeaxanthin, vitamin C, vitamin E, and zinc to reducing the risk of certain eye diseases, including macular degeneration and cataract formation.
Dr. Wianecka believes every child should have an eye exam yearly starting at 6 months by an Eye Doctor. Pediatrician exam is not enough. 30 percent of visual impairments are missed by pediatrician eye screenings. And this is what it is an eye screening and not a full eye exam. 80 percent of all learning in school is done by eye sight that is why it’s so important to test kids yearly especially the ones that are struggling in school. With the sedentary lifestyles we are leading now and with increased computer use kids are diagnosed with all kinds of visual disorders earlier. Schedule your kids eye exam today. It is the only way to prevent long term side effects vision impairment can do to a child.
Doctors of optometry (ODs) are the primary health care professionals for the eye. Optometrists examine, diagnose, treat, and manage diseases, injuries, and disorders of the visual system, the eye, and associated structures as well as identify related systemic conditions affecting the eye.
