This is National Eye Health Week

25 September 2014

Here are points 3 and 4 of the Vision Matters Six Simple Sight Savers guide. Please contact us if you want to know how to reduce your chances of sight loss.

3. Watch your weight. a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30+ doubles your risk of suffering age-related macular degeneration and significantly increases your chances of developing cataracts.

4. Get fit. Aerobic exercise can help increase oxygen supplies to the optic nerve and lower any pressure that builds up in the eye.

Reducing intraocular ‘eye’ pressure can help control conditions such as glaucoma and ocular hypertension.
