    Hi Ryan !

    How’s it going? You know that I was actually thinking about that the other day – my eye sight has deteriorated considerably since being in font of the computer all day as opposed to in front of a training room!
    My tip – look out the window – we have great views from our floor so i make a point of turning around and taking it all in regularly :)
    Cheers,
    Deb


  2. Sounds goofy, but sometimes I focus on things with bright colors, like photographs of flowers, letting my eyes register something other than white background and type.

    Good suggestions, Deb and Michelle. I also make a point of going outside at lunch time, even if only to walk around the block. It’s too easy to eat at your desk and spend your “free time” surfing the web.

    Poor eyesight is a challenge for many older people. However, even though a variety of risk factors and degenerative diseases can cause loss of vision, there are plenty of natural ways to help preserve your ability to see clearly.

    The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapies reports that, in a survey of Swedish Chiro patients, more than 14 percent of patients reported improved vision following the care of a Chiropractor. Regular chiropractor visits support healthy eyesight and proper function of the brain and nervous system.

    Optimal nutrition can also help prevent vision loss. Research shows that targeted supplementation with carotenoids and antioxidants (free radical-neutralizing compounds), including vitamins C and E, along with zinc and copper, helps stave off age-related macular degeneration and preserves eye health.

    Dr Steven Lockstone is a Chiropractor in Melbourne with a passion for health and chiropractic.
