"Healthy Vision™ With Dr. Val Jones" Show Highlights The Impact Of Nutrition On Vision And Eye Health

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As a child, your mother may have told you, "Eat your carrots. They're good for your eyes."  Was your mother right, or was that just her way of getting you to eat your vegetables?

On the new edition of Healthy VisionTM with Dr. Val Jones, optometrist, author and President of the Ocular Nutrition Society, Jeffrey Anshel, O.D., and leading nutrition researcher Elizabeth Johnson, Ph.D., join Dr. Val to talk about nutrition and its impact on vision and eye health.

"Advice about nutrition and how it affects your vision and eye health can be confusing," says Dr. Anshel. "One day a report tells us that a certain food or supplement is good for us; the next day another report tells us that it is not. But what can be said, without contradiction, is that the foods we eat (or don't eat) play a major role in all aspects of health."

"When we think about foods and nutrients that are good for your eyes, it's going to be many of the same things that are good for your heart, your bones, your kidneys, and for your overall health," says Dr. Johnson. "That's a diet high in fruits and vegetables, and high in antioxidant nutrients, which are important as we age.  But, no one food is going to give you everything you need."

On this podcast, the two experts review what nutrients are important for your eyes, why they are important, and how much of them we should be taking in as part of our overall diet. Additionally, Drs. Anshel and Johnson offer advice about vitamins and nutritional supplements – who may need them, when to take them, and how to choose the right ones for you.

They also provide listeners with resources to turn to for guidance on specific products or specific nutrients, such as the Ocular Nutrition Society (www.ocularnutritionsociety.org), a non-profit organization of eye care professionals dedicated to including nutrition into their practices to help patients maintain clear vision and healthy eyes throughout their lifetime. "The Ocular Nutrition Society website offers a doctor locator where patients can look up doctors who are members of the society who emphasize nutritional care for eye health," says Dr. Anshel.

The program is supported by ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses and is hosted by Val Jones, M.D., CEO of Better Health, LLC, a network of popular health bloggers, and author of, "Dr. Val and the Voice of Reason."
