Protecting your eyes from UV light is crucial to
prevent cataracts. Every year, 1.5 million people
undergo cataract surgery in North America.
95% of those procedures are successful.

1. Shield your eyeS

Even on a cloudy day, the sun’s UV rays are bad for
your eyes. Reduce your exposure to harmful UVA and
UVB light by wearing a wide-brimmed hat and
sunglasses whenever you go outside. This will greatly
reduce your risk of developing cataracts.

A diet rich in vitamins A, C and E has been shown to
slow the progression of many age-related eye
diseases, including cataracts, glaucoma and macular
degeneration. So go ahead and eat melons, citrus fruit,
spinach, carrots and cabbage to your heart’s content.

and maximize your chances of stopping those issues in
their tracks.
