What foods actually help our vision? Is it a myth that carrots are good for our eyesight? The best foods for eyesight are high in particular nutrients or vitamins. A diet that's full of healthy foods for our eyes won't give you superhuman vision or cure eye conditions, but it can help our eyes' overall health. That can have a big impact down the road.



Asheville is an area known for the great outdoors; however, many of the jobs that make up our strong economy are related to computers and technology. We might spend as much as 8 to 10 hours staring at a computer screen each day. We may be spending even more time in front of screens as we continue practicing social distancing to flatten the coronavirus (COVID-19) curve. Families are working and educating at home, often utilizing teleconferencing tools much longer than they would ordinarily. 



To Our Valued Patients:

Asheville Vision Associates has always been committed to the health and safety of our patients, our staff, and our community.

Due to the current spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to assure you that it has been our commitment for years to sanitize each piece of equipment both immediately before and immediately after each use to prevent the spread of germs from one patient to another. We have always been proud of this commitment.



Headaches can be caused by any number of issues, from changes in sleep and skipping meals to poor posture and stress. But they can also be related to undetected or uncorrected problems with your vision. To find out what is causing your headaches or to rule out eye issues, make an appointment with your optometrist. Relief may be closer than you think!
