Description

The world of nutrition and nutritional supplements can sometimes be a minefield for both patients and optometrists. In this “Take Over” episode of the College's podcast, optometrist and avid listener, Sophie Hinton MCOptom speaks to Dr Rani Banik, New York neuro-ophthalmologist, and functional medicine MD, about the role of nutrition in eye care. Following her own experience with migraines, Dr Banik applies principles of complementary and alternative medicine in conjunction with traditional medical approaches to treat chronic diseases affecting the visual system in her practice. Their conversation covers the key nutrients and foods patients can eat to promote eye health, the use of supplements, how antioxidants in food may reduce cataract formation and the limits of nutrition science.
