Helpful tips on Maintaining Healthy Eyes

  • How Important is Nutrition to Eye Health?

    Research indicates proper nutrition is critical to maintaining and preserving eye health for both men and women. As part of a healthy diet, choose foods rich in antioxidants, like vitamins A and C; foods like leafy, green vegetables; and fish. Many foods - especially fish - contain essential omega-3 fatty acids that are important to the health of the macula, the part of the eye responsible for central vision.

    An inadequate intake of antioxidants and consumption of alcohol and saturated fats may create free-radical reactions that can harm the macula. High-fat diets can also cause deposits that constrict blood flow in the arteries. The eyes are especially sensitive to this, given the small size of the blood vessels that feed them.
