Did you know that your eyes are the reason you hold onto memories? That’s because 80% of our memories come from what we see! With more than 2 million working parts, our eyes are a complex and complicated part of the human body. Yet, when irritated, our eyes have the innate ability to recover quickly; needing little intervention.
As miraculous and marvellous as our eyes are; there can be no denying that our lifestyle choices can sometimes act against our best long-term health and wellness.
We only get one set of eyes and it’s up to us to guard and protect them, since they are one of the few parts of our body that actually can’t be transplanted.
Here are a few simple things you can do today, to take care of your eyes:
1. Know Your Eye History
Your factors for degenerative eye disease can be caught early if you are aware of your family history.
2. Protect Your Eyes
Sun protection is essential – always wear sunglasses with UV protection
3. Visit Your Optometrist
Schedule Eye Exams at least once every 2 years or sooner, if you notice any sudden changes to your vision.
Taking these steps to look after your eyes, will give yourself a better chance at preventing vision loss associated ageing, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, cataracts and glaucoma.
“Prevention and care are always the best remedy when we think about the best way to take care of our health. Eye health is an essential part of our overall wellbeing – we rely on our sight everyday and if we want to ensure good, long-term eye-health and vision as we age, we need the right vitamins and nutrients.” Says Founder and CEO of Fontanella, Dr Mike Pukanic.
When you just can’t get the nutrition you need from your diet or if you’re recovering from illness; include our Fontanella Super Antioxidant to your daily routine. It’s packed with high quality lutein; a powerful antioxidant that supports eye function and helps to maintain the function of the retina. It also contains bilberry which combats visual fatigue and aids the proper functioning of the eye; while also improving night vision.
