Senior Citizens’ Eye Diseases

Managing Aging Eye – Lifestyle, Nutrition and Water.

“Eye Misting” Is a New, All-Natural Discovery for Senior Dry Eye

Seniors and aging eye.

As you age, it is normal to become concerned about the many serious eye diseases to which seniors are susceptible. These diseases are collectively called “aging eye.”

Managing aging eye.

Ideally, your parents will have taken you for regular eye exams and made sure you ate properly, obtained sufficient sleep and exercise, and drank enough water (hydration is important because recent research is discovering a link between aging eye diseases and chronic dehydration). If you maintain and eye healthy lifestyle as an adult, your chances of developing serious aging eye diseases could be considerably reduced.

Bio-Logic Aqua Research has discovered that age related eye disease can be minimized by proactively managing your eye health and lifestyle.

The company recommends:

  • Regular eye exams (to catch problems early).
  • Drinking at least 60 to 80 ounces of water a day to prevent dehydration.
  • Eating plenty of dark green vegetables (spinach, kale, arugula and broccoli). Carrots are extremely high in beta-carotene, required for visual functioning.
  • Obtaining plenty of sleep and exercise.
  • Avoiding excessive sun exposure, prolonged computer use, smoking and other activities that create a high risk for dehydration and dry eye in seniors.

Aging eye diseases.

  • Age related macular degeneration.
  • Cataracts.
  • Diabetic retinopathy.
  • Floaters.
  • Glaucoma.
  • Presbyopia.

Senior dry eye.

Chronic dry eye (loss of tear film water/moisture) is common among seniors and can lead to corneal ulceration, eye cancer and blindness. Research is discovering that dry eye could be a root cause of all aging eye diseases. To prevent dry eye and prolong vision, it is important at any age to drink plenty of water, keep eyes hydrated and be aware of dehydration symptoms. Be especially proactive if you live in a high risk area for dry eye or frequently engage in the high risk activities listed above.

Eye Misting.

Proper eye hydration, maintaining the correct amount of all-natural moisture in the eye’s tear film, could help senior citizens (and everyone else) prevent or alleviate aging eye diseases. A patented new all-natural approach to eye hydration, called “eye misting,” has recently made this much easier. Simply point the gentle, 100% water, hand-held mist applicator towards your face and press a button. There are no eye drops, eye droppers, chemicals, preservatives or saline solution. Your eyes absorb the all-natural water mist from the air exactly as they absorb natural humidity.

The only all-natural water eye mist currently available is Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, from Bio-Logic Aqua Research.
