Good Nutrition for Healthy Eyes
Some people don’t believe that fruits and vegetables can help keep their eyes healthy and their vision strong. But we want to tell you that brightly colored fruits and veggies actually can help protect against certain eye diseases! Eating healthy and eating food containing the right kind of nutrients and vitamins can be extremely beneficial for your eyes.
Antioxidants are particularly important for eye and vision health because they inhibit damage to the eyes, particularly in the retina and lens. Lutein and zeaxanthin are two types of antioxidants that can be beneficial for protecting your eyes from macular degeneration, a condition that causes vision loss. So keep in mind that when you buy your vitamins, you should try to get some packed with lutein and zeaxanthin!
We want to ensure that your diet and nutrition are helping your eyes more than damaging them. If you have any other questions on how to eat healthy to protect your eyes and vision, give us a call.
