Thanksgiving – A Time to Give Gratitude for Sight

The Importance of Eye Care - Browz Eyeware

As Thanksgiving approaches we are reminded to give thanks and show gratitude for the wonderful things and people we have in our lives. As you look around you this Thanksgiving, be thankful for the gift of sight.

We should never take our ability to see clearly for granted. The best way to protect vision is to schedule regular eye exams.

The Importance of Eye Care - Browz Eyeware

Protecting your eyes should be at the top of your health priority list. That’s because 75% of visual impairment is preventable — if detected and treated early enough.

Some of the damage caused by eye disorders like glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration can be prevented if the conditions are discovered and treated early on; but they can cause irreversible damage and even blindness if they go undiagnosed and untreated. By taking preventative measures and receiving treatment for your eye and vision problems before they become advanced, the greater your chance of maintaining clear vision and eye health.

One way to protect your eyes: Wear sunglasses, even in the winter. Sunglasses help prevent exposure to UV rays that can cause eye damage and cataracts. Make sure your sunglasses have a UV coating and the correct tinting. If you plan to wear your sunglasses in or around water or out in the snow, a polarized lens is recommended. This way your eyes are fully protected.

This Thanksgiving, count your blessings and be thankful for the gift of sight by taking care of your eyes. Get your eyes examined annually, and contact your eye doctor if you believe your vision has changed in any way.

Homemade Pumpkin Pie with Caramelized Walnuts

One of the best sources of vitamin A happens to be pumpkin and pumpkin pie is a delicious eye-healthy dessert. It's a fact that 1 cup of cooked, mashed pumpkin contains about 200 percent of the recommended daily intake of Vitamin A. Vitamin A provides nourishment and protection to the eye’s macula, lens, and cornea and often improves night vision.

Try this eye-healthy pumpkin pie with caramelized walnuts. Enjoy vision healthy foods this Thanksgiving.
