More than 3 out of 4 adults in the United States use some form of vision correction. On a global scale, the numbers would be even higher if more under developed countries could afford the traditional corrective methods. Most causes of vision impairment are preventable. Lack of education and adequate nutrition are the biggest contributors of health issues all over the world. According to Unite for Site, more than a billion people need vision correction and are unable to get it.
The good news is that more and more of the world’s population is being exposed to tools that can inform and educate themselves with critical information that can aid in preventing many debilitating health issues, including vision loss.
Access to the most basic of information on eye care, such as how to perform simple eye tests could raise an awareness that could inspire the use of good practices that promotes better vision. Such may be the cause in reversing the trend that suggests each new generation will have a greater need for corrective lenses or laser eye surgery.
Good eyesight has become a rarity among people of all ages, not just aging adults. In just a generation the number of people needing corrective vision has more than doubled in the United States.
It is clear from this statistic that the need for better education and information on proper eye care is not unique to the under developed nations of the world but rather is a global concern transcending all demographics.
Better Vision Naturally
Research has shown that there are natural remedies for many of the world’s most debilitating health issues including vision loss. In many cases, better vision is possible with the education and the use of good health practices, including:
- eye exercises that strengthen and tone the muscles surrounding the eyes and increases the focal range
- limiting exposure to conditions that can cause eye strain and fatigue or possible eye injury
- nutrition that replenishes vital minerals and nutrients that promotes optimum eye health
Changes in your vision should never be taken lightly and should be evaluated by a medical professional to determine its cause. Conditions such as “halos”, blind spots and dimness of vision or blurriness could be symptoms of other serious concerns such as an eye injury or other conditions that may include diabetes.
Ignoring the symptoms of a possible abnormal state of vision could lead to serious damage which may permanently affect more than just your vision health. Seeking the medical attention from an eye specialist is of the highest importance.
