I'm about to turn 44, and I do not currently wear glasses. I've been doing Paleo for almost 3 months.
Lately (and after I started Paleo), I've been increasingly bothered by difficulty focusing on near objects.
I really don't think it's been an issue before Paleo.
I learned from Mr. Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Presbyopia that the term is Presbyopia , and is likely caused by: "the loss of elasticity of the crystalline lens, although changes in the lens’s curvature from continual growth and loss of power of the ciliary muscles (the muscles that bend and straighten the lens) have also been postulated as its cause. "
Does this have anything to do with Paleo, or is this just a giant coincidence (and a simple result of me getting old)?
Any chance all the saturated fat I'm eating is making my eyeballs less elastic?
Has anyone else noticed diminished vision since going paleo?
Any eyeball exercises which might help delay the need for glasses?
PS: Paleo is like helping a friend with a computer problem: you get blamed for every subsequent computer problem if you touched it last!
