Q&A with Dr. B

Dr. Barnstein Answers Your Eyecare Questions

What are some simple tips for nutrition and the eyes?

1. Have Your Annual Eye Health Examination: Most people have heard the term, “preventative care.” When it comes to the eyes and nutrition, many eye diseases can be not only diagnosed in an eye health examination, but also identified by the doctor before the eye condition becomes a problem. If it’s been more than a year since your last eye health examination, be sure to schedule an appointment with your eye doctor.

2. Have a Physical: This goes back to preventative care and also discussing family histories with your primary care doctor. For instance, if a doctor diagnoses diabetes during a physical, they can discuss the importance of an annual eye health examination, and also go over a nutritional management plan.

3. Eat a Diet High in Antioxidants (fruits and vegetables).(Check w/ your Doctor on this.): Many studies show that eating a diet high in antioxidants, can have preventative effects on eye conditions. People should also consult with their primary care doctor, or a nutritionist. For instance, while fruits contain a lot of antioxidant benefits, they also have a lot of sugar. So a diabetic person needs to speak with their primary care doctor/endocrinologist/nutritionist about this to determine what’s best for them.

4. Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids: Numerous studies have shown that omega 3 essential fatty acids can have preventative effects on eye conditions like macular degeneration, dry eye syndrome, and diabetic retinopathy. Omega 3 Essential Fatty acids have also been known to aid in the vision development of children. The best omega 3 fatty acids are generally those derived from fatty fish. Check with your primary care doctor/nutritionist to determine what dosage is best for you

5. Consider Taking a Multivitamin for Starters: When it comes to taking multivitamins and other vitamins/antioxidants that can help with the eyes, I recommend consulting with your primary care doctor about dosage, etc.
