The thought of losing some, if not all, of our eyesight is, frankly, quite scary. For people with cataracts, this could be a reality.

Here's one to add to the growing list of benefits conferred by increasing your intake of Omega-3 fatty acids as epitomized by the Mediterranean diet -- a dramatically lowered risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). According to the first of several recently published studies, having just one serving of fish per week lowers your risk of macular degeneration by 31 percent while a serving or two of nuts reduces risk by 35 percent.
Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the world, and belongs to a group of eye diseases that damage your optic nerve, leading to vision loss.

Although they’re about 1/10 the size of a 35mm camera, eyes are infinitely more versatile—focusing on adjusting, absorbing, sorting, and interpreting thousands of images.

Despite the natural aging process, several cultures have found ways to preserve good eyesight and eye muscle function- secrets that you can take advantage of.

Vision loss can be a scary prospect. But here’s something you may not realize . . . you can take simple steps to prevent it – even reverse it.
