Nutrition for Vision

While most people don't realize it, what you eat can affect how you see! Our eyes are as much a part of our bodies as any other organ, so they are influenced by our nutrition. New research has confirmed that nutrition can make a difference in our eye health. Most affected are conditions of Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), Dry Eye Syndrome, Cataracts and Glaucoma. Dr. Anshel now lectures on these conditions and how to resolve them with proper nutrition.

Eyestrain is the most common complaint of computer users. It is a term that was developed from the lay public- the eye care professions have no set definition of it. We have definitions for numerous conditions which occur throughout the visual system but eyestrain is not one of them. One tends to think of a muscle strain as what would happen to a muscle if it were overworked. In fact, ‘eyestrain’ is rarely a tired muscle which causes many of these complaints.

Eyestrain can have many meanings to any number of people. It can be caused from such problems as focusing spasm, different vision in each eye, astigmatism, hyperopia, myopia, excess light, voluntary focusing, eye coordination difficulties, and more.

In the computer environment, eyestrain- in all of its manifestations- can also be caused by a number of different environmental conditions. It is unfortunate that this is the most common complaint of computer workers because it is also the most difficult to evaluate. Many people may consider the tiring of their eyes as the ‘eyestrain’ condition. This is most often caused by a condition known as convergence insufficiency and can be easily treated with a simple vision therapy program.

If you feel your eyes ‘strain’ during or after computer use, it would be logical to have further testing done to determine the exact cause of the complaint.
