Learn the Importance of Taking Care of Yourself

Like everything else in your body, your eyes and brain need a good source of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients to help them perform their best. At Vision Therapy Institute, we have a deep understanding of what you need to keep your eyes and brain functioning properly—and it all starts with what you’re putting in your body. But what if there’s more to the story.

We offer genetic testing to help you better understand how particular foods, nutrients, and habits can affect your health and susceptibility to disease. After a quick cheek swab, we can evaluate more than 100 genetic markers in 10 key wellness areas using the Nutrigenomics Genetic Test. Dr. Davis uses this information to provide tailored nutrient recommendations and empower you to meet your health, cognitive, and vision goals.

For your day-to-day health, vegetables, fruits, meats, and nuts all provide various nutrients that support cognitive brain function and prevent the risk of eye disease. Striking the right balance is key. We can help you find the foods and supplements you need to keep your eyes and brain healthy!

Supporting Your Nutrition

Your brain and eyes share a very close relationship, and the nutrients you take in play a vital role in your neuro-ocular health.

With studies diving deep into macro and micronutrients, we clearly understand the chemicals your eyes and brain need to perform their best. For example, we now know that omega-3 fatty acids have anti-inflammatory properties that support your retinal health, while leafy greens rich in vitamin K and lutein can slow cognitive decline as you get older.

With this information, our team can support you and your family’s neuro-ocular development with easy-to-understand and widely available foods and supplements.
