Flickering Mind Holistic Therapies has recently been contacted by MyVision. MyVision is a free digital resource led by expert ophthalmologists and optometrists to provide trusted information on eye health and vision. They have also kindly shared this invaluable resource which looks at the links and affects mental and visual health have on each other.
Researchers have found close links between eye health and mental health. People with vision impairments often develop mental health problems like anxiety and depression, commonly because of the stress of living with their condition. People with mental health problems are also more likely to develop vision issues later in life. Due to so many not knowing about the correlation between vision and mental health, and with the goal to raise awareness during National Depression and Mental Health Screening Month, MyVision have created this guide to share more information and answer your questions.
