Aging is a reality of life. And most eye diseases are directly related to the aging process. We never see cataracts, macular degeneration or glaucoma in a 20 year old. But elderly patients either have, or have been treated for most all of these diseases. It is interesting to note, however, that some patients get advanced eye disease at much earlier ages than others.
Have you ever gone to a class reunion and noticed that some of your classmates look much younger than their age while others seem much older? Why do some people age faster than others? And more importantly, is there a way to emulate those slower aging people? Science tells us that the answer is YES! Eye Care Associates is now partnered with the leading anti-aging company in the world. We have solutions that will significantly slow the aging changes in our patients' eyes so that they can lead more fulfilling lives.
Skin Carotenoid Level
At Eye Care Associates we promote eye health along with our patient’s overall health. To do this we offer a BioPhotonic Antioxidant Scanner. This scanner is the world’s first and only tool for measuring carotenoid antioxidant levels directly in your tissue.
Knowing your antioxidant level is as important as knowing your cholesterol levels, or your blood pressure. Current medical literature suggests that antioxidants can slow the progression and even decrease your risk of cataracts, macular degeneration, dementia, cancer, heart disease, and complications related to diabetes. Antioxidants have also been shown to slow down the aging process, boost your immune system, and speed recovery times while decreasing pain and inflammation.
