Nutrition and Glaucoma
(http://ow.ly/ZUro30ngy9Z)

It has been believed by many that carrots are the best type of food to consume for your overall visual health, but recent research shows that the relationship between carrot consumption and healthy vision isn't as correlated as we once thought. Spinach, on the other hand, has high amounts of antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin, which are nutrients that are found frequently in your eyes, and have been proven to be extremely beneficial for your overall health

Glaucoma and Headaches
(http://ow.ly/eUuG30ngy9X)

Glaucoma is characterized as a disease of the eyes that can result in headaches. Glaucoma results in headaches when fluid in the eye does not drain properly, or if there is an overproduction of fluid, which leads to an increased amount of pressure that is built up within the eye. Prolonged increased pressure can eventually lead to visual loss if not corrected. The headache that is caused by glaucoma can be felt in or around the eyes or the forehead, and vary in intensity from mild to severe.

Crystalens Eye Implant Surgery
(http://ow.ly/hUWC30ngy9P)

Crystalens is characterized as an intraocular lens, or IOL, that functions by replacing the eye’s natural lens. In Southern California and throughout Los Angeles, Crystalens has been a highly effective treatment option for patients with cataracts or for patients who require a lens exchange. Focusing is achieved because Crystalens is the sole intraocular lens that is based on the natural eye ability to focus on distance, midrange, and near vision all in one.

Progressive lenses are what's known as no-line multifocal lenses. Simply stated: they provide the same capabilities as trifocals and bifocals, but without the annoying lens lines. If you suffer from a combination of farsightedness and nearsightedness, progressive lenses can help you see clearly in all instances.

What Is Myopia?
(http://ow.ly/SEkp30n33fn)

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a condition in which you can see objects that are close up, but struggle to see those that are far away. If you have trouble reading street signs or billboards when driving, nearsightedness may be to blame. Fortunately, glasses, contacts, and LASIK surgery can all effectively address and correct this problem.

Who Should Avoid LASIK Surgery?
(http://ow.ly/Fuq230n33fm)

LASIK surgery is generally well-tolerated, but it isn't for everyone. For example, if you suffer from dry eyes; are pregnant; have high refractive errors or unstable vision, you should avoid LASIK. Following a thorough eye exam and review of your medical history, the optometrists at Venture Eye Institute can formulate a treatment plan that meets your unique needs.

Can Glaucoma Be Prevented?
(http://ow.ly/Swkx30n33fk)

No. Unfortunately, there's no way to prevent glaucoma entirely. However, preventive health measures like regular eye exams can help to detect and catch the problem. When glaucoma is caught in its early stages, it can be effectively treated, preventing permanent eye damage while preserving your sight.
