In this week’s episode of Be HEALTHistic, Drs. Stephen and Drew Sinatra welcome Dr. Rudrani Banik — a board-certified ophthalmologist, fellowship-trained neuro-ophthalmologist, and functional medicine expert. Dr. Rani specializes in migraines, treats a wide spectrum of conditions affecting vision, and understands the complex connections between the eye and the brain. First, Dr. Rani explains her fascination with the eye and why she became interested in functional medicine. She shares how diet and lifestyle changes transformed her own health, and how she applies functional medicine with her patients. Then, Dr. Rani discusses the specific nutrients and supplements that are most beneficial for eye health, and which foods are the best sources. Next, the doctors discuss the leading causes of vision loss — cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration — and what you can do to prevent these issues as you age. Dr. Rani talks about her new book on macular degeneration, and what you can do to support your eye health and avoid the condition. Finally, she shares her “pearl” of wisdom about the blue light exposure we’re all experiencing due to increased screen time.
