Healthy Eyes Are Part Of Our Total Body Care - #ffbamd

While keeping your body fit, Make sure that your eyes stay healthy too!

I sometimes refer to myself as cyclops and that's basically because I only have one functioning eye. God has blessed me to be able to see based on how weak my eyesight is.I will do everything to help keep them as healthy as possible. I am getting to that age where I will have to worry about other things that will be affecting the health of my eyes and I want to learn and also share with y'all how to keep your eye health optimum.

Let's learn more about a common curable eye disease, AMD.

Every year nearly 10 million Americans go blind due to AMD or Age-related Macular Degeneration. The exciting news is that a cure is in sight!

The Foundation Fighting Blindness, a non-profit organization, has provided funding for research on cures for blindness, specifically AMD, since 1971. In fact, with the research FFB has already made possible, treatments to stop and in some cases even reverse retinal disease is a reality.

This is great news for people over 55 and their families. With AMD it is nearly impossible for grandparents to enjoy the little things in life such as playing games, watching movies and reading to their grandchildren. However, due to innovative research, those things are once again possible for many people…but, we need to continue this outreach, support additional research and find cures.

Please remember while everything is pointing to keep our bodies fit and healthy, we cannot forego the health of our eyes! There is just too much of God's beautiful life to see!

What is Age-Related Macular Degeneration?
AMD is an eye disease that causes the loss of central vision. Specifically, AMD causes degeneration of light-sensitive cells in the macula, the central portion of the retina which enables us to perceive fine visual detail. The macula helps us with activities such as reading, driving and threading a needle.

  7. I've had 2 friends with macular degeneration so I know how important it is to get checkups & take care of your eyes. One friend found out early & was able to slow the degeneration which is great. The other just found out so ... we don't know yet

  9. I have ocular myasthenia gravis so I know all too well the importance of eye health. It's permanent with me but I still do all that I can so that I don't go completely blind in my left eye. Richard B

  10. I think we take our eye health for granted. I know I do. My sister is only 53 and she has glaucoma. She cannot read or drive. It is devastating.

  11. This is a timely reminder for us to take care of eyes. I cannot imagine going blind! My vision got worse last year and I had to get a new pair of glasses that would fit me. I will have to set up an appointment with my doctor this week.

  14. This is really interesting! I think unfortunately a lot of people look at eyesight loss as just a part of aging. But like many parts of aging we have the power to do something about it!
