Basic tips for Maintaining your eye health:

Eating for Good Vision

Your health is generally a reflection of your diet. Nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids, lutien, zinc and vitamins C and E may help you avoid age-related eye problems such as cataracts and macular degeneration. You can find these vision preserving nutrients in these foods:

  • Leafy, green vegetables such as spinach, kale, and collards
  • Salmon, tuna and other oily fish
  • Eggs, nuts beans and other non-meat protein sources
  • Oranges, lemons and other citrus fruits or juices

Stop Smoking

Smoking increases your risk of option nerve damage, cataracts and macular degeneration. Kicking this habit is difficult, but the more times you try to quit, the more likely you are to succeed.

Wear Sunglasses

The proper sunglasses can protect your eyes from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. Too much UV exposure increases your risk of developing cataracts or macular degeneration.

Your sunglasses should block 99% to 100% of both UVA and UVB rays. Polarized lenses can help reduce glare when driving. Contact lenses offer some UV protection, but sunglasses are still a good idea for added protection.

Look Away From the Computer Screen

Looking at your computer screen for prolonged periods of time can cause:

  • Eyestrain
  • Dry Eyes
  • Blurry Vision
  • Trouble focusing at a distance
  • Neck, back and shoulder pain
  • Headaches

Visit Your Eye Doctor Regularly

Everyone, including small children, should have their eyes examined regularly. Eye exams find eye diseases, such as glaucoma, that have no symptoms. Early detection is important with eye disease, as they are easier to treat when caught in early stages. Depending on your age, you should make an appointment for an eye exam every 1-2 years.

    I have had dry eyes for a quite sometime and had seen several physicians and got eye drops etc but not until I have seen  Dr. Benjamin I found how serious problem that it was. I had the most thorough and individual attention by Dr. Benjamin. He explained to me my problem and treatment options available. Dr. Benjamin and His staff  are very caring and they spend as much time with you as needed and one feels taken care of. I was given state of the art treatment for my dry eyes and my eyes went from feeling tired , red , scratchy and itchy to brilliantly glowing clear. Office is very serene and staff is attentive, pleasant and smiling. Dr. Benjamin is very down to earth and explains thoroughly that one understands what alis them. I will definitely  keep coming back for all my eye issues.

    I wish I had come to Dr. Benjamin years ago!!!

    I have been hopping around between 3 eye doctors in the last few years complaining of severe eye pain, redness - so bad I haven't been able to wear contacts for a year. Every other doctor made a diagnosis in 2 minutes, prescribed a few things and sent me on my way. Nothing helped and the doctors kept saying my eyes looked fine despite my symptoms. Finally I saw Dr. Benjamin, and he listened to my concerns from top to bottom and did tests the other doctors never did! He made a brand new diagnosis which finally makes sense and fits my symptoms. He spent almost an hour with me which is unbelievable. I am so impressed with this place, even the front desk and other staff were so friendly. I'm so relieved and am looking forward to making a recovery with Dr. Benjamin and eventually getting LASIK.
