Wed Aug 03 2016

To have a great vision is everything. But unfortunately, many people suffer from poor eyesight, distorted vision, or have difficulty seeing objects close up or at a distance. To take proper care of your eyes, a person needs to include the vital nutrients needed for healthy eyes. Here are some of the food items that you should consider eating to keep your vision strong 1)  Green and Leafy Vegetables They are rich in the antioxidant called lutein which helps in reducing the risk of age-related Macular Degeneration. So if you eat lots of green and leafy vegetables like Spinach, it would help in making your eye muscles stronger. 2)  Carrots Carrots have a nutrient called beta-carotene which helps in preventing degeneration of eyes because with age, the eyes muscles become weaker. To avoid that, have sufficient intake of carrots in your diet. 3)  Tomatoes They contain a nutrient called lycopene which prevents light-induced damage to eyes and also decreases the level of macular degeneration. Tomatoes are also an excellent source of Vitamin C, another vision protector. 4)  Fresh Fish Omega 3 fatty acids in the fish make tiny blood vessels of eyes stronger and healthier and help in the proper flow of intraocular fluid in eyes, prevent glaucoma and helps reducing dry eye syndrome. 5)  Nuts and Dry Fruits Eating them will help you reduce risks of eye diseases like cataracts and eye muscle degeneration as they are rich in Vitamin E6)  Citrus Fruits They are critical for good eye health because they are high in Vitamin C which helps in preventing Cataracts and AMD. 7)  Berries Eating berries reduces the risk of developing macular degeneration and cataracts as they have lots of Vitamin C8)  Kidney Beans They are a good source of bioflavonoids and zinc which helps in maintaining good eye health especially in night vision and cataract generation. 9)  Eggs Vitamin A and Vitamin E in eggs help to protect against night blindness and dry eyes. 10)  Whole Grains Eating lots of whole grains suffices the need of Vitamin E in your diet which reduces the risk of age-related macular degeneration. They also contain nutrients like zinc and niacin which aids in healthy vision as well.   In conclusion, what you need to do is add these food items in your daily diet, it will help in maintaining your eye’s health better.
