Take the Antioxidant Challenge
Boost Your Eye Health with the Right Food & Vitamins
Do you know your antioxidant score? Dr. Mark Davis, your leading eye doctor in Rocky River, OH, will perform specialized testing to pinpoint your levels of antioxidants. This number is fundamental to designing a nutrition plan to maximize your lasting health.
“Eye care is whole body health care,” says Dr. Davis. By keeping your antioxidant levels high, you are strengthening your body against destructive free radicals that contribute to premature aging and eye disease. Free radicals destroy healthy cells and damage your DNA, which makes it easier for ocular disease to develop.
Antioxidants are found in many fruits and vegetables, as well as in oils, beans and nuts. Specific eye conditions, such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), cataracts and dry eye syndrome, have been shown to occur less in people who eat healthy proteins, vitamins, minerals, lutein and omega-3 fatty acids. We will also advise you on the best nutritional supplements to keep your vision strong.
