  • According to a new study published in the British Journal of Ophthalmology, eating an unhealthy diet full of processed meat, fried foods, and high-sugar items over a long period of time can lead to eventual vision loss.
  • Instead, aim to fill your plate with fruit, dairy, poultry, fish, and vegetables—which are not only beneficial to your eyes, but your heart and brain as well.

Thanks to new research, “watch what you eat” may take on a whole new meaning. A study published in the British Journal of Ophthalmology suggests that eating a “Western pattern diet”—which includes processed meat, fried foods, and high-sugar items—may present significant risks for developing age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a leading cause of irreversible vision loss among older individuals worldwide.

Researchers looked at data from Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities—a population-based epidemiological study with nearly 16,000 participants reporting on lifestyle habits and medical histories from 1987 to 2017—and compared food questionnaires to retinal photographs taken at two different points in that 30-year timeframe.

Their findings? Those who ate a Western pattern diet had a threefold higher incidence of late AMD compared to those whose diets leaned more heavily on fruit, dairy, poultry, fish, and vegetables—particularly dark leafy greens and carotene-rich options.

Airflow Vision Concept Revives a Grand Old Chrysler Name

  Airflow Vision Concept Revives a Grand Old Chrysler Name What a sophisticated car will look like in the future, according to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles: a sort of muscular retro-futurism and lots of screens.Even though CES, the annual technology show in Las Vegas, is undoubtedly forward-looking, Fiat Chrysler apparently thinks a shimmer of the past is the right way to go. FCA will show off a new "sculptural design concept" there next week. Interestingly, its name takes more than a little from the Chrysler Airflow, which was itself more than a little futuristic when it was produced back in the 1930s.

Although the risk for early AMD was not significant in the results, study coauthor Amy Millen, Ph.D., of The State University of New York, Buffalo’s School of Public Health and Health Professions, said it’s likely there’s still a connection there, particularly if this type of issue runs in your family.

“It’s possible that early AMD risk is influenced more by genetics than diet, and that diet can influence the direction the disease goes, and whether it advances or not,” she told Runner’s World.

Although eggs are part of a Western pattern diet, that’s one food that needs more research to determine its effects on vision, according to Millen. Eggs are a good source of lutein, she said, which has been shown to be a beneficial nutrient for the eyes.

Sony's surprise concept car, the Vision-S, is an EV equipped with 33 sensors—lidar, radar, and cameras—plus 360-degree immersive audio and a panoramic screen stretching across the front dashboard.The point is to showcase Sony's capability for in-car entertainment and cloud technologies inside a vehicle.Sony made no suggestion that the car would go into production.

“Foods that are part of the Western diet are less nutrient dense, meaning they provide less of the beneficial nutrients needed for the eyes per calorie contents than such food as fruits and vegetables,” said Millen.

She added that these foods also tend to increase weight and systemic inflammation—two more risk factors for AMD.

This type of condition most affects central vision, Millen said, which is what you need to see straight in front of you as compared to peripheral vision. The effects of AMD might include blurry vision, dark areas in your field of view, and changes in color perception, all of which could be dangerous for your everyday life, but especially while running.

Currently, there’s no cure for AMD, although there are treatments like medications and laser therapy designed to slow down the degeneration process.

Even if AMD isn’t part of your genetic makeup, taking steps now to make your plate healthier could have big effects on your vision and overall health as you get older.

“Most people understand that diet influences cardiovascular disease risk, and risk for obesity, but I’m not sure how much the average person thinks about diet as connected to vision loss,” said Millen. “But what you eat to maintain good health is also related to what you eat to maintain good vision.”

a man and a woman standing in front of a computer: If you take a look around you right now, odds are that you'll see quite a few people wearing glasses. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 12 million people over 40 in the U.S. have vision impairment, and around 61 million U.S. adults are at high risk for major vision loss. There are some risk factors for worsening vision, like age, that can't be controlled, but there are others that can be. You just might not realize what they are.
