A Lack of Shut-Eye Can Affect Your Vision
BREAKING NEWS: Feeling sleepy? You’re not alone. A new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study finds that more than 40 million American workers get fewer than six hours of sleep per night. That’s not good, because the amount of sleep you get each night has a huge impact on your overall health - including the health of your eyes.
“The negative impact of chronic sleep deprivation goes far beyond dark circles under your eyes,” says Sandy T. Feldman MD, one of the nation’s top eye experts. “Studies show that the eye needs at least five hours of sleep per night to properly replenish. Short of that, the eyes simply can’t work at their full potential.”
WHY IT’S IMPORTANT: Common side effects of lack of sleep include:
“So many people are seeking ways to get more sleep these days, it’s become something of a cottage industry,” says Dr. Feldman. “I encourage my patients to try good old-fashioned home remedies. Drinking chamomile tea right before bed. Reading a book, especially a boring one! And avoiding social media, sugar and caffeine for few hours before bed.”
WHO CAN TELL YOU MORE: Sandy Feldman MD, Medical Director of Clearview Eye & Laser Medical Center in San Diego.
