When it comes to smoking and the health dangers it poses, first and foremost it’s about the lungs.
It seems reasonable that this is the case, but the eyes are also part of the equation.
As I’ve written previously, a healthy lifestyle is good for the eyes and the reverse is also true, to the extent that the eyes are actually a barometer of the body’s overall health.
Because illnesses such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy aren’t on the radar of people, it’s not on their radar when it comes to smoking.
If you said to someone, there could be a good chance you may lose your eyesight from smoking, do you think they would continue to do so?
