The Best Food to Nourish Your Eyes

Every part of the human body affects other parts. For example, eating habits can also affect eye health. In a large human clinical trial, the National Eye Institute linked lutein and zeaxanthin, vitamin C, vitamin E and zinc with a reduced risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). AMD is an eye disease that affects the central part of the eye, the macula, which is responsible for your sharp central vision.

Everyone has a high risk of losing some degree of vision as they age, but don't worry, there are things we can do to reduce this risk. The aforementioned studies show promising results linking diet to eye health. It's important to find healthy foods that promote healthy vision. In this blog, we explain where to find all the key nutrients for improving eye health.

The following foods are good for your eyes:

1. Leafy green vegetables

There is no doubt that dark leafy greens are one of the healthiest foods to eat on a daily basis, and it is closely related to eye health. They are high in vitamins C and E, as well as the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin.

2. Fatty fish

Fatty fish is known for high concentrations of omega-3 fatty acids: DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). While these fatty acids aren't directly related to improving eye function, they can help prevent other problems: For example, it's been linked to dry eye.

3. Lean meat and poultry

Lean meat and poultry contain high levels of zinc. Zinc carries vitamin A from your liver all the way to your retina. Vitamin infusion brings enhanced visual vitality.

4. Orange fruits and vegetables

You've probably heard the rumor that carrots can help you see in the dark. While this old story may not be entirely true, orange fruits and vegetables are rich in beta-carotene, a type of vitamin A. When the eye gets enough vitamin A, it can adapt to the dark more easily.

Of course, one fruit you shouldn't forget is oranges. We just want to point out that oranges and other citrus fruits contain high levels of vitamin C, which help maintain eye pressure and normalize blood pressure.

5. Beans and legumes

Chickpeas, peanuts, wax beans, and other legumes are low in fat and high in fiber. They provide overall and healthy protein-infused nutrition. Not only that, but they also contain high levels of zinc, which means high concentrations of vitamin A in the retina. Please try some beans and legumes.

Healthy Lifestyle

The lesson here is really simple: eat healthy for healthier eyes. A balanced and healthy lifestyle ensures better overall health, including eye health. Fortunately, most of the overall dietary advice for a healthy lifestyle also applies to vision improvement issues. In addition to various recommendations for a healthy eye diet, many other factors contribute to eye health. For example, quit smoking, get regular eye exams, and avoid prolonged exposure to ultraviolet (UV) and high-energy blue light. However, avoiding harmful light from the sun and digital screens can be challenging. Learn more about how to protect your eyes from the harmful effects of UV and blue light here!
