Carrots are not the only food your eyes need

Many people have heard that they need to eat carrots for their eye health. They also should be eating green leafy vegetables such as spinach and kale. These are rich in lutein. Another important nutrient is zeaxanthin, which can be found in paprika and orange peppers. Lutein and zeaxanthin are antioxidants important in the health of the macula. The macula is the part of the retina affected in macular degeneration. If these food are not part



of your normal diet, these nutrients can be found in supplement form from your eye doctor. Rinkov Eyecare Center offers the only supplement on the market that contains the exact ration of zeaxanthin and lutein that is found naturally in the eye. Give us a call to find out more.

Back to School Eye Exams - Don't forget sunglasses!

With back to school time fast approaching, many kids will be getting their back to school eye exams. It is important to remember that kids need to protect their eyes from the sun and harmful UV rays as well as adults. Many parents choose to get their children's glasses with photochromic lenses. These lenses change to sunglasses when outdoors. Many kids find these very helpful on the playground, as they give sun protection without having to have two pairs of glasses at school.
