Want to Avoid Cataracts? Here’s How
They say the eyes are the window to the soul.
But let’s face it – your eyes are your window to the world.
You depend on your vision for reading, cooking, driving, and all the things that let you maintain your independence.
So I know you want to do everything you can to avoid cataracts, one of the leading causes of vision loss among seniors.
Fortunately, there’s an easy way to slash your risk of EVER getting cataracts.
And, believe it or not, it has nothing to do with your eyes.
One of the best ways to prevent the development of cataracts is to control your blood sugar.
A recent study published in the journal Eye has revealed that having diabetes DOUBLES your chances of developing cataracts.
And if you have diabetes AND diabetic maculopathy (a diabetic retinal disease), you’re SIX TIMES more likely to develop cataracts.
Cataracts occur when your eye lens becomes clouded, which reduces your visual clarity, makes colors appear faded, and increases sensitivity to light.
So while it is not life-threatening, it does dramatically impact your quality of life.
Because of advancing treatments in the U.S., cataracts rarely cause blindness here in the States. But they still contribute to vision impairment in a significant number of older Americans.
At this point, more than half of all Americans over 75 develop cataracts. And the numbers have only increased in recent years.
Some of the risk factors for cataracts can’t be avoided—aging and family history, for example.
But most of the others… including diabetes, drinking, smoking, high blood pressure, obesity, and overexposure to blue light… are completely within your control.
Simple diet and environment fixes – eating more whole, organic foods, being more active, staying a healthy weight, spending time in the sun – are PROVEN ways to make sure you NEVER have to give diabetes—or cataracts—a second thought.
To a brighter day,
