For many years I have handed my patients literature discussing the causes of their increasing nearsightedness! Among the these causes are:
- lots of close work (reading, smart phones, computers, video games) without looking far and relaxing the eyes after 3o minutes of close work
- diets that are high in processed foods and carbohydrates (pasta, pizza, potatoes, chips, cereal, cookies, candy, soda)
- reading with poor lighting.
One of the biggest triggers for nearsightedness that many parents disregard is diet! Here is an alternative view point to hopefully help strengthen your commitment…………Nutrition and Myopia.
Cut these and keep your eyesight and your health!
