According to the British ophthalmologist David Ellembi, in the next decade, the number of people who will suffer from myopia and other vision problems will increase by 50%. Avoiding this will help supplement the diet with foods that are good for vision: fatty varieties of fish, herbs and vegetables.
As the scientist explains, the main reason for this is the too long time that a person spends in front of a computer monitor or the screen of a mobile device. When looking at the flickering screen for a long time, people involuntarily start blinking less, while their eyes do not get enough moisture, which as a result can lead to dryness and discomfort, as well as more serious vision problems. Therefore, already at 23-25 years old, most people already use glasses or contact lenses. And this is already in the best case, since today even schoolchildren cannot boast 100% vision.
To neutralize the harmful effects of screens, an ophthalmologist recommends that people pay special attention to the balance of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids in their diet. For most modern people, omega-6 fatty acids are found in the diet, which are found in fried foods and meat.
Omega-3 fatty acids are part of vegetable oils: olive, flaxseed, peanut, and also in fatty fish meat: salmon, herring and mackerel. Therefore, people who work with a computer, experts recommend that you include these products in your diet as often as possible, and if possible every day.
