Diet and nutrition play a vital role in maintaining strong vision and healthy eyes. Research suggests that some nutrients may reduce the risk of developing certain eye conditions:
- Lutein & Zeaxanthin: these nutrients are commonly found in leafy green vegetables and have anti-inflammatory properties. They may even help improve cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.
- Vitamins C and E: found in many fruits and vegetables, these vitamins can reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration when part of a healthy diet.
- Essential fatty acids: specific essential fatty acids, such as Omega-3s, may have benefits for the retina. Omega-3s are commonly found in foods like fish and eggs.
- Zinc: Zinc plays an important role in normal ocular function. Zinc can be found in oysters, red meat, and poultry products.
