Why DO I Have Blurred and Cloudy Vision?

A cataract is a condition in which the clear lens of the eyes becomes cloudy, preventing sufficient light rays from entering the eyes and impairing vision. Age is the most common reason for developing cataracts. The development of cataract is also associated with a positive family history (if a family or relative has cataract before), an unhealthy lifestyle (such as smoking and heavy alcohol intake) and prolonged exposure to sunlight or radiation. Cataracts can cause eyes to be easily irritated, and can lead to decrease in visual acuity, with blurry and double vision.

Preserve Your Eye Health

After age of 40 years, tear secretion progressively reduces which may lead to dry eys. To avoid having dry eyes, we need to take in enough Omega-3 fatty acids which help to nourish, moisturize and sooth dry eyes by reducing inflammation activity.Include more Omega-3 rich-food such as salmon, tuna, flaxseed, almond and walnut in your daily diet. For extra help, grab a bottle of AFC Bilberry Lutien DX or AFC Ultimate Vision that contains a full range of eye nutrients such as DHA Omega 3, Lutein and various Antioxidants!

An Apple A Day, Keep Your Teeth Healthy

Do you know that chewing on an apple helps to scrub your teeth?  Apples have a high concentration of Malic acid which helps to increase the flow of saliva. This in turn cleans your teeth and removes stains. Apples are also rich in fiber, Vitamins B and C, Potassium, Calcium and Zinc which are vital to maintain general health.

Why Should You Use Dental Floss?

To have good oral health, it is not enough to brush your teeth twice a day, you need to floss at least once a day too. By flossing daily, plaque is removed from the areas between your teeth where your toothbrush cannot reach. This is important because plaque that is not removed by brushing and flossing can eventually harden into tartar. In addition, people who are wearing braces or have big interdental gaps can use a special interdental toothbrush for a more effective cleansing effect.
