When it comes to our vision, the old adage to eat those carrots doesn’t even come close to reflecting the power that diet has on preventing vision loss. By age 65, 1 in 9 Canadians develop irreversible vision loss and by age 75 this increases to 1 in 4. The good news is that while genetics play a role in the risk of certain eye diseases, the vast majority of the risk factors are largely influenced by environmental factors. This seminar will empower you to prevent this type of vision loss through diet, lifestyle and important Vision Wellness principles.
