If you bother to count people who wear glasses, you will realize that they are more numerous than you think. Wearing glasses has now become commonplace. Furthermore, the models of glasses currently available are so elegant and modern that their usefulness is forgotten. We also accept with resignation that the sight drops with the passing of the years: “It’s age … nothing can be done!”.

Prevention is possible!

Scientific studies conducted over the past 15 years have clearly shown that the decrease in visual acuity can be prevented. For example, you can avoid getting tired on your eyes by spending hours in front of the television. If it is more difficult to escape the computer work, we should at least have the foresight to have a screen that does not tire the eyesight and ensure the quality of the lighting. In the long term, a varied and balanced diet also plays an essential role in maintaining visual acuity.

Macular degeneration

Macular degeneration, a vision problem due to age
Macular degeneration is, together with cataracts, the most frequent eye problem in the elderly. It involves a progressive decrease in visual acuity and can also lead to blindness. Recent clinical studies have shown that lutein and zeaxanthin, two specific carotenoids present in certain foods, such as spinach, corn, kiwis, chillies, peppers etc., are able to effectively prevent macular degeneration. These two carotenoids are also available in the form of food supplements.

Cataract

Cataract is characterized by a progressive darkening of the crystalline lens of the eye (natural lens). It is believed that among the co-responsible factors for this degenerative disease are oxidative processes, attributable to factors such as stress, smoking, alcohol abuse, the absorption of heavy metals present in the environment, UV rays etc.

Numerous studies show that vitamins C and E, as well as zinc and selenium trace elements, significantly reduce the risk of cataracts. A constant and regular supply of vitamin C or E in sufficient quantities is already enough to decrease this risk by 50-70%.

  1. It should be noted that if opacities at the lens level are present in almost all subjects over 60 years of age, they are not always such as to cause a visual alteration.

    1. I always read your articles with interest, in this case (being my field) I could add that the symptoms are in fact very different, varying from a “clouded” vision up to a major drop in visus.

      1. When the opacities are complete there is loss of vision and the pupil takes on the typical gray color of the so-called “mature” cataract.

        1. A very important detail to note, as far as macular degeneration is concerned, is that it is a progressive degeneration of the macula, the central region of the retina involved in the distinction between the details of the images and the colors. The process is irreversible because the cells of the retina are unable to regenerate.

          1. In case of onset of symptoms affecting the visual apparatus, an initial interview with your General Practitioner is useful to assess the seriousness and urgency of the clinical picture and to be eventually addressed to the ophthalmologist who, through objective examination, specific tests and diagnostics by images he will diagnose and set the appropriate therapy.

                1. Many visual disturbances constitute a natural evolution of vision or originate from an eye disease.

                2. I have a principle of cataract in the right eye and according to my ophthalmologist doctor it was formed as a sort of veil that prevents light from reaching the retina. I am waiting for more information because apparently it is possible to cure it when it is not yet aggravated with an intervention by laser rays.

    1. In the presence of very serious cataracts, it is customary to resort to surgery, but in many cases this treatment does not imply an improvement in vision.

      1. A diet rich in vitamins A and C is essential for tissues, ocular functions and for curbing the deterioration of the lens. Vitamin A is obtained from vegetables and red fruit, such as carrots, oranges, papaya, apricots, as well as sorrel, sweet potatoes and spinach. Spinach is especially recommended to reduce the chances of developing serious cataracts. For vitamin C, cherries, dog rose, guava, currants, watercress, spirulina algae are needed.

        1. I agree with trying to prevent or limit as much as possible rather than cure or undergo surgery. Foods that are a natural source of antioxidants should be included in the diet. We are talking about oranges, lemons, grapefruits, strawberries, black grapes, broccoli and tomatoes, quality olive oil. Antioxidants fight free radicals (unstable oxygen molecules) which can build up in the eyes and cause cataracts.

            1. For those who are not far from the sea, open your eyes when you immerse yourself in the sea water and spin them a couple of times in all directions. At the beginning it can irritate, but does not harm the eye and can be applied every day.
