Regular eye tests are crucial to spot problems early and adults over forty are advised to have an eye test every two years. Also, check your family history - if a close family member has glaucoma or cataracts you may be entitled to free eye check-ups. Your diet can offer some defence against age-related conditions - eat oily fish, leafy greens, and yellow and orange coloured foods which are rich in antioxidant vitamins and a vision-supporting compound called lutein. 

It’s also important to get regular exercise to protect against high blood pressure and atherosclerosis, both of which are known to increase the risk of eye disease. For more top tips to maintain healthy vision and ward off eye disease read our latest health articles.
