Colorado Doctors of Optometry Encourage Eating Nutrient Dense Foods This Holiday Season

DENVER, Colo. -- Doctors of optometry across Colorado, 2020 Eyes Colorado, and the Colorado Optometric Association (COA) are addressing nutrition and eye health in the December awareness theme Eating Your Way to Better Eye Health.

This holiday season Coloradan's can eat their way to better eye health by simply incorporating nutrient dense foods. Optometrists know that good eye health often starts with nutrition.

If an individual is nutritionally lacking in one area, it can create a snowball effect of health issues. "We can use nutrition to improve our eye health on a daily basis by choosing optimal foods to support our eyes. We can even incorporate these choices throughout the holiday season without skipping our holiday favorites. Remember moderation is key!" says Dr. Tom Cruse, Colorado Optometric Association Board President.

Colorado doctors of optometry agree that you should aim for eye health nutrition such as Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Lutein, Zeaxanthin, Zinc, Copper and Vitamins A, C, E & K.
