Though vision problems have become an accepted part of aging, research has shown that there are measures seniors can take to keep their vision strong. These include simple lifestyle changes, such as getting routine eye exams, maintaining a healthy weight, and having a nourishing diet.

“There are many conditions associated with aging that don’t necessarily have to happen,” says Dr. Victor Marchione, spokesperson for Bel Marra Health. “Trouble with vision is one of those preventable conditions that seniors need not suffer. There are some pretty simple natural solutions that anyone can use to slow down or even prevent diminishing eyesight.”
Protecting eyes from the sun is one of the actions Dr. Marchione says has been proven to help seniors keep their vision strong as they age. Wearing a hat or sunglasses is known to protect the eyes, particularly sunglasses with UVA/UVB protection.
“Eyes are just as susceptible to the sun as skin and require the same amount of protection,” Dr. Marchione continues. “Just like sunscreen is put on all exposed body parts for protection, it’s important to give eyes similar care and attention.”
Eating healthy foods that are known to benefit vision is another natural step to maintaining strong eyesight. It is common knowledge that carrots help with vision, but oranges, dark leafy greens, and even olive oil have shown to improve or maintain eyesight. Keeping a healthy weight goes hand in hand with eating well, so individuals who are overweight put themselves at a higher risk of being diagnosed with diabetes, which can cause vision problems.
“There are so many natural remedies available that successfully cure or lessen the symptoms of common maladies,” says Dr. Marchione. “Finding natural means that encourage the body to heal itself or prevent the onset of any disease or ailment can be a much better than modern Western medicine.”
