The health of your eyes is critical to overall happiness and well being. When you consider that over 80% of the information that you take in from the world is through your eyes, the importance of their health cannot be overlooked. Your eyes can capture and interpret more than one-million pulse signals per millisecond and transmit to the brain. Your eyes are truly amazing organs. Your eyes, like other organs of your body, are subject to stress and injury and can lose their full potential if not properly taken care of. It’s important to maintain the health of your eyes even as you grow older. Healthy eyes are a critical component in learning and experiencing growth and development.

Leading a healthy lifestyle of exercise and proper nutrition can help keep your eyes functioning properly well into your later years. Most people don’t start thinking about eye health until they experience some change in their eyesight. Your eyes are like all other organs in your body, in that they change as you grow older. Keeping them healthy when you are in your 20’s and 30’s will prepare you well for when the transition of your eyes begins.
