AMD - Macular Degeneration
A diet plentiful in spinach, kale, collard greens and broccoli, foods rich in lutein (a yellow carotene that is also concentrated in your retinas) can offer incredible help in keeping your eyes healthy. Studies confirmed that macular degeneration was less for those who ate more lutein and other carotene-dense foods. #dherbs #healthtips
To discover any changes to your vision as early as possible, your eye care professional will probably have you test your own vision on a regular schedule using a small, hand-held Amsler grid. He or she may also do this at the office. At home, you will hold the chart at reading distance in good light, cover one eye, and focus on a black dot in the middle of the grid, then repeat with the other eye. If the lines of the grid appear dim, irregular, wavy, or fuzzy, schedule an eye exam immediately.
