It’s time to be good to your eyes.

Eating better. Spending less time looking at digital devices. It’s not just good for your body and mind—it’s healthy for your eyes, too.

Nutrition is key

Your eyes are unique and have their own nutritional needs. Care for them the right way by choosing healthy foods, such as those that contain Lutein and Zeaxanthin (which are typically found together), Omega-3s and antioxidants that support eye health*.

Nourish Your Eyes™

When it comes to your wellness, you may be overlooking your eyes…watch our new TV commercial to learn more!

Dr. Jeffry Gerson
The Doctor is In
  • Eye wellness starts with talking with your eye care professional at least once a year.  Luckily, we know a great one: Dr. Jeffry Gerson is an optometrist who lectures frequently on the topic of retinal eye health.  We sat down with him to discuss the best ways to care for our eyes and help keep them healthy for the many years ahead.

  • Bausch + Lomb: What’s the most important thing you tell patients about taking good care of their eyes?
  • Dr. Gerson: It’s really no different than taking care of the rest of your body: maintain a good diet and healthy habits like exercise, and you go a long way toward nourishing your eyes.
  • Bausch + Lomb: What do you tell patients about the best foods to eat for healthy eyes?
  • Dr. Gerson: A “colorful” diet is the best. Go for variety and add lots of fruit and veggies. Many people think carrots are best for your eyes. Spinach is actually better—it has more of the lutein and zeaxanthin that your eyes need. But carrots are still better than french fries. Food is the best way to get the right nutrients, but most people won’t get all they need. That’s why a supplement is a good idea.
  • Bausch + Lomb: My vision will naturally decline when I’m in my 70s and 80s, right?
  • Dr. Gerson: Age is not an excuse for poor vision. If you’re having an issue seeing, there’s probably a reason other than age. Keeping your eyes nourished with the right nutrients and practicing good habits can help.
  • Bausch + Lomb: Any other eye care tips?
  • Dr. Gerson: If you wear glasses, get multiple pairs! Scratched lenses really affect your vision. After all, you wouldn’t own just one pair of shoes.

“Lutein and Zeaxanthin are key nutrients that support eye health. Other nutrients are good for your eyes too: Vitamin C is helpful in conjunction with the other vitamins. Zinc helps with healthy immune function and general eye support.”

– Dr. Jeffry Gerson

GOOD ADVICE:20-20-20 RULE

As you age, your eyes can lose vital nutrients like Lutein and Zeaxanthin, which are crucial for supporting a healthy macula. You can’t stop aging—but you can start simple habits that help care for your eyes through your 40s, 50s and beyond.

  • 20-Minutes-Icon
    20 Minutes

    For every 20 minutes of screen time or paperwork, give your eyes a reset.

  • 20-Feet-Icon
    20 Feet

    Stare at something at least 20 feet away.

  • 20 Seconds

    Stare at least 20 seconds to engage your distance vision and ease eye strain.

GOOD ADVICE: SHADES MATTER

Sunglasses are more than a fashion accessory. They are essential to helping protect your eyes against the sun’s harsh rays. But make sure you choose your shades wisely.

Choose a pair that blocks more than 95 percent of UV-A and more than 99 percent of UV-B radiation. And if you play sports or work outside, choose lenses made from a polycarbonate material for impact-resistance.

15 minutes with your eye doctor can make a real difference

Even if you think your vision is fine, make an annual eye care appointment. Your eyes may offer clues to other health conditions, like diabetes and vascular health. Your doctor can also discuss your diet and lifestyle, and address small complaints before they turn into larger vision problems.
