Smoothies that Can Help Prevent Glaucoma
More than 2.7 million Americans over age 40 have glaucoma, and experts suspect half of them don't even know it.

Glaucoma is the leading cause of preventable blindness. Since glaucoma can sneak up on you, it's important to maintain a good diet and get regular eye exams.

A poor diet can adversely affect eye health. Increased eye pressure can damage the ocular nerves, leading to partial vision loss and a susceptibility to eye disease.

Listen in as Dr. Sandy T. Feldman shares diet recommendations to improve your eye health.
