In This Chapter
Improving your vision and overall eye health
Keeping cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration at bay
Treating conjunctivitis, dry eyes, and sties
Reducing and recovering from eye strain
If you’re like most people, even though vision is one the most essential of your five senses, you probably don’t give your eyes or vision much thought until they fall victim to illness or you notice that you’re not seeing things as clearly as you once did.
In this chapter, I encourage you to pay attention to your eyes and vision before you notice a problem, and I provide guidance on dietary changes and supplements that can help preserve eye and vision health throughout your lifetime. I also provide guidance on how to treat numerous eye and vision conditions, ranging from common, minor problems, such as dry eyes and conjunctivitis, to chronic conditions, including glaucoma and macular degeneration.
