Aging Eyes: More Than Just Crow’s Feet

Older Eyes

Older Eyes

Aging eyes are more than just wrinkles; it’s what you can’t see that is a bigger concern.  Unfortunately, the eyes are one of the fastest aging organs in the body, and it’s the health of the eyes I’m talking about, not the wrinkles.

By age 40, many people start to have not only vision problems, but also comfort issues. At this stage, the biggest problems usually are dry eyes and the inability to focus up close, which can make you feel fatigued and headachy by the end of the day.

Some people refuse to wear reading glasses and insist on fighting Mother Nature, but they are not doing themselves any favors. They will tire more quickly when doing any work up close, including computer work.

Did you know that reading glasses are not the same as computer glasses? Glasses you need for reading usually are different than ones you need for a computer.  Using the wrong strength can lead to eye stain, headaches and feeling lousy at the end of a day’s work in front of a computer.

Some people believe taking a vitamin supplement will make these things go away, or make them better. Vitamins have little to do with the eyes ability to focus, which is the root cause of eye strain.

Vitamins won’t hurt you, but eating a healthy diet, getting exercise, wearing the proper eye correction and a good night’s sleeps are better than any supplement on the market.
