Every day, nearly every waking second, we depend on our eyes – to keep us safe, to keep us informed, to heighten our enjoyment of the world and people around us. Vision is our dominant sense, and the eye is one of the most important organs of the body, yet, many of us do not know how to protect and care for this vital asset.

Eye diseases such as macular degeneration and cataract can lead to blindness or reduced vision. As many as 11 million people suffer from some sort of macular degeneration in the United States. The prevalence of blue light from electronic screens and devices, as well as UV light of the sun play an important role in formation of macular degeneration and cataracts.

Join us for this noon hour webinar discussing helpful medical and alternative methods for protecting your eyes and preventing age-related eye diseases. In this webinar, you will learn:

- The physiology of healthy vision and the changes that lead to macular degeneration and cataract

- The effects of UV and blue light on our eyes and how they can cause certain eye diseases

- Ways to protect against eye diseases by medical, environmental, and nutritional methods
