“I recommend blue-blocking glasses to prevent eye damage. You can buy them by clicking here, even in prescription form, or as reading glasses. You can also just have any eyeglass store add a film to any of your existing glasses which will block the blue/green rays. Also, MacuGuard by Life Ext is a good supplement for the pigments that protect us from macular degeneration. Any good multi-vitamin / anti-oxidant formula such as MultiThera is a way to increase protection against oxidative damage which accelerates cataract formation. Another idea if someone wants to get really aggressive is to do the N-Acetyl-Carnosine eye drops for cataract prevention. These are all available on Fullscript and the MultiThera and MacuGuard are in our office as well. However, the MOST important for cataract prevention is to block the blue/green light from screens AND to wear sunglasses whenever you’re outside and then to keep blood sugar normal. The higher the blood sugar, the faster cataracts develop.” – Dr. Farnesi
