Have you scheduled your 2013 Eye Exam- que esperas? Do so today! #transitionslens

This is part of a sponsored campaign with Latina Mom Bloggers and Transitions Optical. However, all opinions expressed are my own. 

Good eye health care is very important because this is a way of preserving your eye sight, making sure to protect your eyes and even eating the right foods to help. There are many different health conditions that may hinder your eyes from seeing 20/20. Some may have (Hyperopia) which is farsightedness, (Myopia) which is nearsightedness.

They say that you can see the soul of a person through their eyes and with age some may reading some print may get difficult this is called presbyopia so with this in mind eye health is a must for all of us.

I remember one of my cousins having to have surgery on both of his eyes to have cataracts removed from both of them this was a very scary time for him and all of us as we all feared he would not be able to see since he was very young when he had the surgery, he was thirty years old (30) thank goodness everything came out alright and he was able to see after healing.

Both of my children wear glasses and just recently my son had to have eye surgery to have glass removed from his eye that had gotten embedded into his cornea (on the left eye) and if it sounds painful yes it is. It was a great relief to my son and the entire family when we were told that because we brought him in time they were able to save his eye sight. With this in mind the entire family has been taking a very different approach to eye health and have made sure to keep themselves informed on how to take care of their eye sight. We started to look for what were the best vitamins and foods to eat for eye health and staying on point with our optometrist appointment.

You should start by check out the Healthy Sight For Life website for more information about eye health.
       Transitions Optical recently conducted an online Omnibus survey of 1,000 participants and asked several questions related to vision as part of the overall dining experience.  Here are some of the key results:

o    The vast majority of consumers (88%) say that the visual presentation of their food is important.  Well over one-third (37%) says it is ‘very important.’
o    Sixty percent of diners have trouble reading the menu when dining outdoors, either because of the angle of the sun, a bright sun, or glare.
o    Both the presentation of the meal (46%) and the restaurant décor (44%) stand out as the most important visual components of the dining out experience.
o    Over six-in-ten consumers have walked out of a restaurant because it didn’t ‘look quite right.’
o    Aside from carrots, awareness that many foods, such as broccoli, kale, berries, and sweet potatoes, promote eye health is very low.
