We typically spend a lot of time in front of digital devices and this has increased in the last 18 months. We are constantly exposed to blue light, so it will come as no surprise that there are several health impacts caused as a result. Many of us take our eyesight for granted, and this week’s guest joins me to share what you can do to protect your eyes and improve your overall eye health.
Dr. Rani Banik is a Board-Certified Integrative Ophthalmologist and Functional Medicine expert. After suffering from debilitating migraines for a prolonged period, she discovered the world of functional medicine and now works to help others experiencing the same issues. She joins me this week to share her experiences and the best way you can support your eye health.
Tune in this week and hear why eye health tends to be an afterthought and some things you can do to improve your overall eye health. Discover how your diet and lifestyle affect your eye health, some ways to protect your eyes from digital strain and some diet hacks to help you get the nutrients necessary to maintain your eye health.
