February is Heart Health Month
February is American Heart Health Month and we want to help build awareness of how important it is to maintain the health of your heart.
Did you know that some of the risk factors that indicate and lead to heart damage are also harmful to your eyes? It’s true!
Smoking, obesity, and high cholesterol levels will put both your heart health and your sight in jeopardy. Exercising, maintaining a proper weight, and eating a heart healthy diet that is rich in omega-3s, antioxidants and soluble fiber will help improve both heart and eye health.
Healthier hearts means healthier eyes, and we want you to know that we are here to support you. Be sure to visit us annually or as recommended–we might just tell you something you don’t know about your heart!
We look forward to scheduling an appointment for you with our practice. We’re anxious to give you the advice you need to keep your eyes-a-lookin’–and your heart–a-tickin’.
Thank you for being such a great patient of ours! Have a great day.
