In the March edition of 20/20 Magazine, we saw “Doing the Math for Haiti,” the story of Bruce Tooker, an optician who traveled to Haiti with volunteers from Medical Aid to Haiti (MATH). We read about how Tooker was responsible for the vision care needs of nearly 500 people in very challenging conditions, over the course of two trips. Tooker described the difficulties people who were living in remote areas faced in obtaining even the most basic vision care, and his desire to expand the program in spite of very limited resources.
It is well known that exercising and discontinuing bad habits such as smoking and drinking alcohol will help us live a healthier life. Eating healthy foods is a big part of that healthy lifestyle. Not only will it improve your overall health, but there are some vitamins and minerals that can have a direct effect on healthier vision.
