Don’t Drink Soda on National Beverage Day

beverages in the aisle

Who doesn’t love a cool glass of iced tea? Or maybe some soda? You’ll get a pass because today is National Beverage Day. It’s no surprise that sugary drinks are bad for you. High blood sugar can lead to problems like blurry vision, cataracts, glaucoma, and more.

Blurry Vision

To correct the problem, get your blood sugar back on track.

Please note that it may take as long as 3 months for your vision to get back to normal. Tell your eye doctor so they can let you know if this is a symptom of a more serious problem.

Cataracts

The lens of your eye is like a camera. When that lens gets cloudy, that means a cataract has formed. Unfortunately, people with diabetes tend to get them earlier, and they get worse faster.

Glaucoma

Pressure builds up inside the eye when fluid can’t drain. This can damage your nerves and blood vessels, causing change in vision. Your eye doctor can detect this early with an exam.

When in Doubt, Drink Water!

The best treatment for dry eye is drinking plenty of water. Tired eyes, blurred vision, and headaches are all symptoms of eye strain. Staying well hydrated with water is important to maintain a healthy eye care!
