Foods that Sabotage Eye Health

Potato chips…cream-filled cakes…cookies…French fries…processed meats…

Most people know that consuming too many highly-processed foods will lead to unhealthy weight gain. But researchers have also made a link between the increased risk of eye disease and overindulgence of junk food containing vegetable, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats along with linoleic acid.

Consider this: Whether you’ve had excellent eyesight your entire life or even if you had successful LASIK eye surgery in the past to correct your vision problems, if you sustain an unhealthy diet, your eyesight could be negatively impacted.

A study conducted at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary found that eating too much junk food increases your risk for age-related macular degeneration (AMD), which causes vision loss in your central vision…even blindness for some people. In contrast, consuming two or more servings of omega-3 fatty acid foods each week such as albacore tuna and salmon may actually lower your risk. Increasing your intake of leafy green vegetables and not smoking also helps.

Why sabotage your eye health…especially if you’re considering investing in your eyesight with LASIK technology in Colton? Limit your intake of junk food and adopt a healthy diet to not only protect your waistline but also protect your vision.
