Three years ago, my good friend and colleague, Dr. Barbara Pelletier and I, decided to use our common passion about healthy living and optometry to create a tool to educate our patients and the public about what they could do to help preserve their vision. We didn't know what form this tool would take, or for that matter, exactly what information it would include. However, we did know that new studies were continually emerging regarding the connection between nutrition, lifestyle and the prevention of eye disease. We also knew that in order to pass this information along we'd have to present it in a simple, practical and fun way.
As we await the release of our new book Eyefoods: A Food Plan for Healthy Eyes, I will share with you the story behind Eyefoods. Follow our blog over the next few days to read about how Eyefoods was created.
To us, the release of our first book represents the beginning of a lifetime of Eyefoods. We have so much to share with you - we hope you will join us on our journey.
