Avocados contain the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin, which protect the eyes against light damage like from ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun. They also reduce the risk of chronic eye diseases, like cataracts. In addition, MUFA protects against age-related eye dysfunction.


Good vision helps you perform well at home, at work, or behind the wheel.
That's, why it's important to make a few simple steps to make sure you help, keep your eyesight at its best. A regular eye exam is the best way to protect your eyesight



As we do our best to get (or stay) healthy for summer, it's important to take special care of our eyes.

Reflections - When the sun bounces off metal, water, or sand, ultraviolent (UV) rays can burn the surface of your eye, causing pain, blurriness and temporary vision loss. Wear 100% UV Protection sunglasses. A broad-rim hat is also a good idea.

Chlorine - Pool chemicals can damage the natural film of tears that keeps your eyes moist. Wear goggles and splash your closed eyes with fresh water right after you get out.

Dry Eye - Hot, dry environments can dehydrate the eye's surface. Wear wrap-around glasses if it's windy and use artificial tears, preferably preservative-free.

Flying Objects - Mowing the lawn? Fishing with first-timers? Use protective eyewear. More than half of all eye injuries occur at home but only about a third of Zimbabweans wear eye protection.

Regularly scheduled eye exams are recommended. Summer can be tough on the eyes. Keep them in shape!

*Adhere to the prescribed wearing and replacement schedule*

Don’t try to write your own rules. Wear your lenses only for the amount of time that your Optician says is safe and replace the lenses according to schedule. Don’t try to stretch out the life of your lenses an extra week. Also, unless you were specifically prescribed continuous wear lenses, you should never sleep in your contacts.



1. Protect your eyes with sunglasses
You are more likely to develop vision problems il your eyes are exposed to too much UV. Good quality sunglasses help to protect the eyes from the sun's ultraviolet rays.

2. Good diet = good vision
Studies show that certain nutrients help to keep age-related vision problems like macular degeneration and cataracts) at bay. Work foods and supplements with omega 3 fatty acids, zinc, vitamin C lutein, and vitamin E into your diet.

4. Don't Smoke
Smoking exposes your eyes to high levels of oxidative stress. While the connection has not been clearly identified, it is known that smoking increases your risk for a variety of health conditions affecting the eye. To help you quit, visit the American Lung Association’s free online smoking cessation program – Freedom From Smoking Online – at www.ffsonline.org.

5. Wash your hands
Keeping your hands clean is so important when it comes to your eyes, especially if you’re a contact lens wearer. Before you touch your eye—and before you put in or remove a contact lens—wash your hands with mild soap and dry with a lint-free towel. Some germs and bacteria that come from your hands can cause eye infections, like bacterial conjunctivitis (pink eye). When you touch your eye, whatever is on your fingers goes right onto your eye’s surface. This is one way that people catch colds—rubbing their eyes while they have cold virus germs on their hands.

6. Wear Sunglasses
To protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet (UV) light, choose sunglasses with both UVA and UVB protection. Also, wearing a hat with a brim will greatly reduce the amount of UV radiation slipping around the side of your sunglasses.

Today let's talk about maintaining eye health for young adults part 1.

Good vision helps you perform well at home, at work, or behind the wheel. That’s why it’s important to take a few simple steps to make sure you help keep your eyesight at its best. A regular eye exam is the best way to protect your eyesight – and an easy precaution to take. Here are some tips to help maintain eye health as you age.

1. Eat a Balanced Diet
fruit vegetables as part of your healthy diet, choose foods rich in antioxidants, like Vitamins A and C; foods like leafy, green vegetables, and fish. Many foods – especially fatty fish, such as salmon – contain essential omega-3 fatty acids that are important to the health of the macula, the part of the eye responsible for central vision.

An inadequate intake of antioxidants, consumption of alcohol or saturated fats may create free-radical reactions that can harm the macula – the central part of the retina. High-fat diets can also cause deposits that constrict blood flow in the arteries. The eyes are especially sensitive to this, given the small size of the blood vessels that feed them.

Your eyes are unique and have their own set of nutritional needs. Ocuvite

2. Exercise
Exercise improves blood circulation, which improves oxygen levels to the eyes and the removal of toxins.

3. Get a good night's sleep
You’ll feel the difference when you get the sleep you need. You’ll look great, you’ll perform at home or work—and good rest will support the health of your eyes.

While people often think more about staying warm than taking care of their eyes during the winter, eye injury and irritation can just as easily occur in the winter season.

Whether you’re hitting the slopes, heading to work or just cozying up by the fire, be aware of your surroundings. It’s easy to take good vision for granted when you should really be taking precautions.

Follow these three easy steps to ensure your eyes stay safe and healthy:

1. Keep your eyes moist. Heat or air circulation from a fire or heater can cause dryness and irritation of the eye. It can be particularly painful and annoying for those who already suffer from dry eye, a chronic condition in which the body doesn’t properly produce tears. Try sitting farther away from heat sources and use artificial tears or a humidifier to alleviate dryness.

2. Wear sunglasses for UV protection. The sun can damage your eyes when it’s cold outside in more ways than when the weather is warm. Cold conditions double the sun’s effect as ultraviolet (UV) rays can enter your eyes from above and are reflected off the snow into your eyes. Wear sunglasses that block 99 to 100 percent of UV light and throw on a hat or visor if conditions are particularly bright.

3. Wear goggles. It’s very easy for debris — dirt, bark, slush, ice — to get into your eye while you’re being active outdoors. It’s even more likely for things to get trapped in the eye. Sunglasses help also considering that most Zimbabweans might not have googles at their disposal. Wear goggles/glasses for protection. Find a pair that has enough room for you to wear sunglasses underneath or find a pair with UV protection built in.

If you are experiencing particularly uncomfortable dry eye, contact a professional eye doctor to make an appointment. If you think your eyes may have been damaged by the sun or by debris, seek treatment immediately.

Today let's talk about being Vigilant about Eye Problems – Look for Signs

Periodically visiting your eye doctor is a great routine to follow, but don’t rely solely on that; it’s your eye health at stake. Be vigilant about your eyesight and keep looking for any changes in your vision. Some red flags to look for include:

i. Hazy vision
ii. Double vision
iii. Problem seeing in low light conditions
iv. Red eyes for prolong time periods
v. Constant eye pain and swelling
vi. Floaters
vii. Frequent flashes of light

If any of these signs and symptoms prevail, consult your eye doctor immediately for a detailed investigation into the matter.

A lot changes as we get older, including our eyesight.
As we age, we should be vigilant in watching for signs of age-related vision loss, because early diagnosis is critical in preventing many sight-threatening conditions from progressing. We want our patients to be as informed as possible so that they can minimize their risks. We also want them to be prepared for the more benign ways their eyesight can change!

The Top Age-Related Vision Changes
Some of the most common changes we can experience with our vision as we get older include:

Requiring more light to see. The older we get, we might begin to need more light to see clearly, so don’t be too surprised if you start needing additional work lamps and reading lights over time.
This number is expected to decrease, but 80% of people over age 45 develop presbyopia. The lenses in their eyes become less flexible, making it increasingly difficult to focus on near objects or words on a page. Presbyopia is the reason many people need bifocals or transition lenses.
Increasing sensitivity to glare. This is a problem especially while driving, and polarized lenses can help.
Changes to color perception. As we get older, colors we see can yellow or dull somewhat.
Reduced production of tears. We need tears to keep our eyes healthy and maintain clear vision, so dry eye can be a problem.
Sight-Threatening Conditions and Age
While all these changes can be frustrating to live with, even though we can correct presbyopia with reading glasses and we can use eye drops to treat dry eye, there are also a range of vision problems that become more common as we get older and are a much more serious threat to eyesight. These include diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma, and retinal detachment.

Medicine and technology have already come a long way in treating or slowing the progress of these eye conditions, and they will only continue to improve prognoses in the future. However, the earlier we can catch the warning signs, the better it is for the patient’s eyesight. This is why regular eye exams become increasingly important over the years.

Helping Your Vision Stay Healthy
Between those regular eye exams, there’s a lot we can do in our daily lives to safeguard our eyesight. Wear UV-blocking sunglasses outside (no matter what season it is), stay active, eat healthy foods, and avoid harmful habits like smoking. Following these tips will greatly reduce a lot of the risk factors for eye diseases, let alone improving your overall health!

Another good tip to follow for short-term vision benefits if you spend a lot of time looking at screens throughout the day is the 20-20-20 rule. Every 20 minutes, give your eyes a break from the screen by focusing on something at least 20 feet away for about 20 seconds. This can help a lot with eye strain!

Our Goal Is Our Patients’ Lifelong Vision Health!

Having your children’s eyes checked regularly is important. After all, vision plays a critical role in how your child learns about the world. But how early should you start?

Children should have their first comprehensive eye exam at age 3. Unless their eye doctor suggests otherwise, they should continue to have eye exams every two years.

Eye exams at the optometrist are important even once your child starts school and has visual screenings. Visual screenings test for visual acuity (clarity and sharpness), but healthy eyes are about more than just 20-20 vision.

Other areas of vision such as colour vision or focus and tracking might present problems that aren’t tested for in visual screenings.

Here are more tips to help you keep your kids’ eyes healthy.

Things to look for with kids’ vision:
Observe how your child looks at things at home and at school. Some signs that your child needs to be checked for possible vision problems include:

1. Sitting too close to the TV or blackboard. When kids have trouble seeing, one of the first ways they naturally compensate is by getting closer or holding things nearer to their faces.
2. Squinting and other signs of discomfort. Vision problems can cause kids to squint, rub their eyes often, be unusually sensitive to light, or tilt their heads when looking at things.
3. Having trouble coordinating. Hand-eye or body-eye coordination during physical activities such as catch or biking can arise from difficulty seeing.
4. Showing unusually low attention or interest. Low attention and distractibility are hallmarks of attention deficit problems (ADHD), but these same symptoms accompany vision problems. Vision problems at a young age can easily lower interest in close activities such as reading, colouring or puzzles.



You know the saying, “You are what you eat”? The food you eat plays a huge part in your health.

Our eyes are vascular, meaning that it is important to have a heart-healthy diet to keep the blood vessels that service our eyes healthy. Tiny capillaries provide your retina with nutrients and oxygen; because these vessels are so small, fatty deposits can easily cause blocked veins.

The toppings that you likely store in your refrigerator door like mayonnaise, salad dressing, or jelly, are all high in fat.

Rather than using these options for flavor on your next sandwich, burger, or salad, try using natural flavors like green vegetables or toppings that are packed with vitamin C, like a squeeze of fresh lemon. Get great flavor with natural foods without sacrificing your nutritional benefits!

Think about the white foods that you eat: pasta, white bread, rice, and flour tortillas. These foods offer almost no nutritional benefit, just simple carbohydrates that give a rush of energy that are followed by a crash.

If you are eating these foods, be sure to add greens and foods that rich with omega-3 to the meal to provide yourself with nutritional benefits. Or, swap them for healthier alternatives that use whole grains.

Red meats and sausages are often convenient to purchase, especially when you are buying from the deli. Lunch meats can seem healthy but are mostly full of chemical preservatives, salt, fat, and cholesterol.

Instead of consuming fatty meats, try adding in lean meats like fresh turkey, which is full of zinc and protein. Salmon is good alternative as well, as it is an omega-3 rich food.

Margarine is often marketed as a healthy alternative to butter but is full of trans fats that can adversely affect your cholesterol.

Instead, try using coconut, avocado, or olive oil as an alternative to both margarine and butter to avoid trans fats.

Junk foods are delicious but can cause serious issues down the line for your health if you consume too many. Rather than eating French fries, cookies, or potato chips, which are all full of saturated fats, swap them out for healthier unsaturated fats.

Lean meats, fish, fresh fruits and veggies, and low-fat or non-dairy products are the best way to receive healthy fats.

We want to help you eat healthy so that your vision remains clear and focused. Do you have questions about how to eat healthy for your eyes? We would love to see you! Schedule your appointment today.

Eye dryness
Too much sun exposure
Dust or other particles in the eye
Infection - eye infections or inflammation can cause redness as well as possible itching, discharge, pain, or vision problems.


Swelling on the edge of the eyelid.

Swelling or infection of the clear tissue that lines the eyelids and covers the surface of the eye (the conjunctiva). This is often referred to as “pink eye.”

Sores on the cornea most often caused by a serious bacterial or viral infection. If you need to see an optician you can book an appointment here.

Inflammation of the uvea, which includes the iris, ciliary body, and choroid. The cause is most often not known. It may be related to an autoimmune disorder, infection, or exposure to toxins. The type of uveitis that causes the worst red eye is called iritis, in which only the iris is inflamed.

Today Lets talk about Avoidable Blindness

Normal vision depends on a multi-faceted, complex process. Light enters the eye through the cornea and lens, with the iris helping to focus the image. The light is projected onto the back wall of the eye, where it is perceived by millions of tiny nerve endings that make up the retina. From here, the retina translates the images into nerve impulses that are transmitted to the brain through the optic nerve.


Leading Causes of Blindness
Nearly all cases of blindness in Zimbabwe are caused by eye diseases, with less than 4 percent of blindness caused by eye injury or trauma. About 80 percent of people who have eye injuries fully recover, while another 10 percent have mild impairment.
Though the following eye diseases are common causes of blindness, you should not assume you are going blind if you have any of these conditions. There are treatments available for each condition — some more treatable than others:

Cataracts occur when the normally crystal clear lens of the eye becomes cloudy. This causes blurry vision, faded colors, and problems seeing through the glare.

2. Glaucoma
Glaucoma usually occurs when the fluid pressure inside one or both eyes slowly begins to increase. This pressure damages the optic nerve and the retina, causing a gradual decrease in peripheral vision.

3.Macular Degeneration
This involves the gradual deterioration of the macula or the nerve endings in the retina that are crucial for sharp central vision. People with this condition deal with blurring and blind spots in their central vision.

4.Diabetic Retinopathy
This occurs when the systemic damage caused by diabetes begins to affect the retina. Specifically, the blood vessels that nourish the retina can be negatively affected by diabetes, causing vision loss through bleeding and damage to the retina.
