Did you know that what you eat can have an effect on your eye health?

But to make sure your vision is in tip top condition this New Year, you might want to think about getting an eye test, according to the experts at Specsavers Lewes, in the High Street.

Food for thought

For example, all those Christmas sprouts might actually have been a great call, as they are high in Vitamin C.

In addition, dark chocolate is also high in antioxidants, which have been said to protect the eyes against age-related macular degeneration.

A word from the store director

Patricia Lofting, store director in Lewes, said: ‘Research has suggested in the past that what you eat can have an impact on the health of your eyes. This makes sense, as a healthy diet can bring a lot of benefits to your life.

‘But the most important thing you can do to keep your vision healthy is have a regular eye test – every two years unless you have been told to have one more often.

'So if you have not had one recently, why not come and see us in store now.’
