Proper Nutrition Keeps You & Your Eyes Healthy

Keeping your eyes happy, healthy, and strong doesn’t end at your eye exam. You know how important a healthy diet is for your body, but did you know that your eyes will also benefit? Including some specific vitamins and nutrients can help preserve your vision and possibly protect you from certain eye diseases.

Eating For Eyesight

Choosing the right foods is essential to protecting and improving your health. Bright-colored fruits and vegetables are especially good for your eyes. These foods are usually high in Vitamins C, A, and E, which are all important.

  • Red: Tomatoes, strawberries, bell peppers, cranberries
  • Orange: Mangoes, oranges, sweet potatoes, carrots
  • Yellow: Lemons, squash, corn, cantaloupe
  • Green: Spinach, kale, broccoli, avocado

Fatty acids, essential minerals like zinc, lutein, and omega-3, are also essential to your long-term eye health.

  • Fish: Salmon, tuna, mackerel, sardines
  • Meat & Dairy: Cheese, yogurt, milk, eggs
  • Nuts: Almonds, pistachios, walnuts, cashews
  • Legumes: Beans, peas, lentils

Supplements For Eyesight

If you find it difficult to get these nutrients and vitamins in your daily diet, there are many supplements available to augment your daily eating habits. In fact, there are several supplement blends explicitly made to boost eye health. When used correctly, you can reduce the risk of developing AMD and cataracts.

If you would like to know more about diet, nutrition, and ocular health, please request an appointment with us. We can discuss what supplements may work best for you.
