5 Key Ingredients to Protect Ageing Eyes

As founders of the Savvy Team, we have had a long and intimate association with Eyes!

Working as Wellness Instructors and Iris Photographers since the early 1990’s, we’ve used the principles of Iridology to help thousands of people overcome issues using nutritional supplements. Many of these issues they had been previously told – were irreversible.

However, protecting or even improving eyesight has more to do with the delicate internal function of the eyes, rather than the outer colour and patterns we look for in the practice of Iridology!

The eyes are complex organs, with many parts that must work together to produce clear vision. The most common nutrients in eye health supplements are various forms of antioxidants. Antioxidants can help slow the progression of vision loss, especially from oxidative stress. The damaging effects of oxidative stress and toxin exposure – is implicated in most eye problems, as it is in most age-related diseases and in the ageing process itself.

The eyes need even more nutritional support today than ever before. For instance, research shows that between 50% and 90% of people who work at a computer screen have at least some symptoms of eye strain. People who look at computer screens frequently, (and who doesn’t these days!) may experience symptoms such as:

  • Eye discomfort
  • Headaches
  • Itchy eyes
  • Dry or watering eyes
  • Burning sensations
  • Changes in color perception
  • Blurred vision
  • Difficulty focusing

If this sounds familiar, it might be time to begin taking precautionary care of your eyes!

Improve Your Eye Health & Even Your Eye Sight with these Nutrients!

These days, many of us have jobs that require us to stare at computer screens for hours at a time. Add to that the collection of devices we use every day for enjoyment, relaxation, and connection – our modern world can put a real strain on your eyes.Our brain interprets the world through our eyes, not only for

Our brain interprets the world through our eyes, not only for survival but to enjoy form, movement, and beauty and to sense many nuances of our outer experience. Plus we can see colour! What a blessing . . .

No wonder poets and writers have doted on the eyes, calling them the ‘windows of the soul’ – remarking on sweetness, love, compassion or surprise radiating from someone’s eyes. We interpret people’s expressions by our eye ‘language’ and there is even a TV series on interpreting people telling lies through the visual clues they give.

Indeed the eyes tell us lots about our personality and our health, as the practice of iridology so clearly points out . . .  however, the ‘focus’ (pardon the pun) here in this post is in what nutrition we can use as ‘tools’, in maintaining or even improving eye health.
