Keep fit and healthy: being fit and well can help your eyes stay healthy. Maintaining a healthy weight and blood pressure can help with eye health.
Eat well: make sure your diet includes nutrients such as Omega 3 fatty acids, zinc and vitamins C and E. These can help to slow progress of age-related vision problems. Recommended foods for general good health include green leafy vegetables, oily fish such as salmon and citrus fruits.
Stop smoking: smoking is harmful to your eyes and can increase the risk of sight loss. Current smokers are 2-4 times more at risk of developing macular degeneration than people who have never smoked.
