Mandel Vision Newsletter ~ In Focus ~ September 2018 Highlights
We discuss the ocular benefits of omega-3 fatty acids, everything you need to know about LASIK eye surgery and more in our latest Mandel Vision ~ In Focus ~ Newsletter.
September is Healthy Aging Month!
The eyes are the windows to the soul…and your health!
In fact, signs of systemic diseases often appear in the eyes before the rest of the body, so an annual eye exam can protect more than just your eyesight.
This Month’s Featured Eye Health Tip
The key to the effectiveness of omega 3 fatty acids is twofold: obtaining the right ratio of omega 6 (polyunsaturated fats) to omega 3 fatty acids (essential fatty acids) and ensuring the body’s optimal absorption of these fatty acids.
Can I drink alcohol on the day of my LASIK surgery?
Drinking alcohol dehydrates you, which can also dry out your eyes. We want your eyes to be in the best possible condition as you heal on the day of your LASIK surgery, so save the cocktails and the celebration for the next day!
