Looking after your overall health is one of the best ways to maintain strong vision. Try to avoid overindulging on takeaway this winter, and instead focus on a balanced diet rich in antioxidants. Leafy greens, seeds, fruit and fish are rich in antioxidants that support healthy vision.
And don’t forget to make the most of the good weather when you can! Simply leaving the house for an hour can produce a much-needed boost of vitamin D.

Exercise can have a dramatic effect on mood, which makes it a key tool in combating winter blues. Even just 30 minutes a day releases endorphins and helps to manage stress and anxiety.
Getting out and about is also a gift for your eyes. Research shows that regular physical activity can reduce the risk of age-related cataracts.

These issues may be corrected with a simple eyewear solution or, in some cases, further investigation for conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma or macular degeneration.

Safe driving starts with good vision.
