Smoking is as bad for your eyes as it is for your lungs. Research has linked smoking to an increased risk of developing Macular Degeneration, Cataract and optic nerve damage. All of these conditions can lead to vision loss.
If you are having trouble quitting smoking, please visit your Doctor for further advice and book an eye exam with The Eye Practice to check if smoking is affecting your eye health.
