May is Healthy Vision Month

Do you extend your arms when reading a menu? Or bring the newspaper closer to you? Declining vision may be a sign of aging, but eating the right foods may help improve your vision:

  • Vitamin C may help with slowing macular degeneration and reducing the risk of cataracts and glaucoma.
  • Vitamin A may lower your risk for cataracts, corneal ulcers, and could help with seeing better in the dark.
  • Vitamin E may help reduce the risk for macular degeneration and cataracts.

It’s best to schedule regular appointments to check your eyes. Your physician can help you determine what treatment you may need to improve your vision.
