Here is another reason to stop smoking: your eyesight. This is not one of you health effects that is commonly thought about.
Heavy smokers are twice as likely to get macular degeneration, resulting in gradual loss of sight. The macular is found inside the retina of the eye and is responsible for detailed vision such as recogising faces and reading. Smoking causes damage to the macular and therefore increases the risk of affecting eyesight.
Smokers also run an increased risk of cataracts, which is the debilitating cloudiness that can lead to blindness if untreated. The cloudiness is made up of clumps of protein which reduce the image sharpness on the lens of the eye. There is growing evidence that smoking is one of the causes of this protein clumping.*
However, as with all health effects of smoking, increased damage can stop when you STOP SMOKING! We all know it can be hard, but hypnotherapy for smoking does work. Find out how you can use self-hypnosis or I can help you personally. See my website, lindataylor.com.au for my contact details.
