5 Foods to Boost Your Eye Health

4. Fish

Fatty Fish


Well, we’ve talked a lot about plants with vitamins, particularly, A, C and E that are needed for healthy eyesight. However, the thing about those vitamins, is they are essentially useless without fat to carry them where they need to go. They are called fat-soluble vitamins.

One great way to get that all-important fat is through fish, particularly fresh salmon and tuna. These fish are meaty and full of Omega 3 fatty acid that helps your blood vessels healthy and strong. These fatty acids help intraocular fluid flows through the pupil, essentially playing a key role in preventing dry eye syndrome and glaucoma.

5. Eggs

Eggs are another super food that contain just about everything you need. One hard boiled egg will give you potassium, vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin B12, iron, calcium, and magnesium — all thing great for healthy and strong eyes.

But, there are two things that makes eggs a healthful food for your eyes: lutein and zeaxanthin. Yes, just like spinach, eggs contain this powerful antioxidant (lutein) that is responsible for the yellow color in the yolk which helps fight macular degeneration. And as we learned earlier,

Zeaxanthin may protect eyes against damage due to ultraviolet radiation from the sun.

Keep in mind, however, that these powerful protectors are only found in the yolk. So keep the yellow stuff in if you want to see all the pretty colors this world has to offer.
