Vitamins for Eye Health

January 09, 2015

Vitamins are an important part of maintaining your overall health, but they are also important for keeping your eyes in good shape.

There are three main vitamins that doctors believe are the most beneficial for your eyes: Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E. Vitamin A is found in beef and poultry liver, eggs, butter, kale cantaloupe, and spinach.

January is National Glaucoma Awareness Month

January 02, 2015

In the United States, approximately 120,000 people are blind from glaucoma, accounting for 9% to 12% of all cases of blindness. If you have glaucoma, don’t keep it a secret. Let your family members know. 

Glaucoma is a condition in which a build-up of pressure inside the eye, referred to as “intraocular pressure,” causes damage to the optic nerve, which transmits images to the brain. Prolonged damage to the optic nerve from high eye pressure can lead to irreversible vision loss or blindness.

What our customers are saying:

My experience was very good. Dr. Peters and his staff answered all my questions and were willing to “narrate” step by step as the procedure was happening. The procedure and day of surgery went very quickly.

My experience from my very first phone call to schedule my consultation until now, has been wonderful. Everyone that I have talked to and worked with has been great and very helpful. I would definitely recommend Nationwide Vision to anyone.
