We see what we eat!

As a result of external factors like UV exposure, smoking and diets high in fat and sugar, oxidants in the form of free radicals cause oxidative damage to cells and proteins.  Young cells can recognize and break down damaged proteins, but as we age, this damaged protein removal system.  Damage from oxidation plays a role in the development of cataract, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, and dry eye.

When our doctors see a patient with a family history of cataracts, glaucoma,  or macular degeneration, they ask the patient if they are aware of the relationship between nutrition and vision.  They then make recommendations for a healthier diet and lifestyle, in addition to supplements such as Macuhealth.

Macuhealth contains ingredients such as lutein and zeaxanthin that help to protect the retina by absorbing blue light.

Our doctors do not recommend unproven herbal supplements to their patients.
