7 Important Facts about Glaucoma

Living With Glaucoma

For people who have been diagnosed with the disorder or for those who are at risk, a program of regular exercise and balanced diet is essential. General well-being, whether physical, mental, or emotional, is also beneficial to eye health. Nutritionists recommend a diet rich in antioxidants, especially vitamins C, A, and E; zinc, lutein, and zeaxanthin. Research also shows that aerobic exercise, such as brisk walking or bike, can be beneficial. Most of all, the key to living with glaucoma is maintaining a healthy lifestyle, seeing a doctor regularly, and following medical advice as closely as possible.
