TYPICAL AMERICAN DIET HAS NEGATIVE IMPACT ON EYESIGHT

food eye health 300×202It is no secret that America is facing a problem with obesity—over 33 percent of adults and 17 percent of children are obese.  Most people are probably aware of the common obesity-related conditions as well, such as heart disease, stroke, and type-2 diabetes. However, a diet heavy on fats and carbohydrates can also lead to an increased risk of inflammation, age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, and retinopathy. As obesity becomes more prevalent in society, its impact on eyesight has been more closely studied. Preliminary research has shown that obesity can have a negative impact, and could even lead to blindness. Weight loss and maintaining a balanced diet are key to helping prevent obesity-related vision disorders. Omega-3 fats improve overall retinal and brain function, in addition to being an anti-inflammatory. However, most Americans consume more omega-6 fats, which have the opposite effect and can lead to increased inflammation. Green tea and vitamin D are also touted as components to long-term eye health. An unhealthy weight and diet will have a major impact on a person’s overall health. Other conditions might be more top-of-mind than any changes in eyesight, but don’t take your eyes for granted. The world holds many wondrous sights, so let us help ensure you don’t miss a thing with a comprehensive eye health exam at our Dallas office.
