You may have been hearing a lot of buzz around "mindfulness" and wondering, what is it? Why should I care? And how would I practice it if I wanted to? Here's the quick "What", "Why" and "How" to get you started.

Psychology Today says Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present. When you're mindful, you observe your thoughts and feelings from a distance, without judging them good or bad.

Nourishing your eyes with appropriate nutrients throughout the years can go a long way toward maintaining good eyesight well into your senior years.

Moreover, even if your eyesight has started to deteriorate, evidence suggests you can stop the deterioration. You may even be able to turn back the clock, as it were, and improve your vision.

Treatments We Offer:

* Attention, cognition, memory, and concentration
