Happy Bones, Happy Life

Mar 26, 2024

What do you consider your most important sense? The majority of people say sight is the most important. 


Many of us take our sense of sight for granted, but it’s very easy to lose. If sight is the most important sense, we should take all possible steps to protect it. 


So, how can we keep our eyes healthy, especially as we age and experience macular degeneration? How do we prevent dry eyes, glaucoma, cataracts, and other health issues affecting our ability to see?


Today, I have Dr. Rani Banik, an Integrative Neuro-Ophthalmologist, keynote speaker, and best-selling author of Beyond Carrots. She is also the founder of Ageless Eyes by Dr. Rani.


Vision is priceless. Join Dr. Rani and me in today's episode of the Happy Bones, Happy Life podcast to learn simple yet powerful tips for preserving your vision and maintaining ageless eyes.
