Good Nutrition Fuels Good Eye Health

It’s common knowledge that your diet can significantly impact your overall health, but have you ever considered how your diet affects your eyes? Just like any other part of your body, your eye health can depend on what nutrients you take in.

At Trendy Eyes Optometry, we’re always happy to advise you on eye health. Schedule an appointment today. We’ll recommend all sorts of tips to bolster your eye health and keep your vision strong.

Preventing Eye Diseases Through Diet

Studies suggest that regular consumption of certain nutrients could play a part in preventing or delaying a number of serious eye conditions. By eating balanced and nutritious meals, you’re taking an active role in managing and maintaining your own eye health.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration

AMD is a common eye disease that slowly limits macular function and results in loss of central vision. In most cases, AMD sufferers do not notice any symptoms aside from vision loss.

Research indicates that there are a wide variety of nutrients which could prevent or delay the development of AMD. These nutrients include:

  • Lutein and zeaxanthin (found in eggs and leafy vegetables like kale)
  • Vitamin C (found in oranges, broccoli, and bell peppers)
  • Zinc (found in beef, nuts, oysters, and beans)
  • Vitamin E (found in spinach, almonds, and avocado)

Dry Eye

The eye needs moisture to work effectively and comfortably. Dry eye occurs when the eye is chronically under-hydrated. Although there are a number of effective treatments for dry eye, the condition can be treated and possibly even prevented naturally through the use of omega-3 fatty acids. Salmon, tuna, and other coldwater fish are all excellent sources of omega-3s. If seafood isn’t your favorite, try peanut butter or eggs.

Cataracts

As we age, the eye’s crystalline lens restructures; causing it to become more opaque. The resulting cloudy lens is known as a cataract. To some extent, cataracts are inevitable; everyone will develop them eventually. However, you can potentially delay cataract development with vitamin C (found in strawberries, tomatoes, and grapefruit), vitamin E (found in vegetable oils, almonds, and sunflower seeds), and lutein and zeaxanthin (found in peas, corn, and tangerines.)

Other Positive Choices for Eye Health

Eye health doesn’t rely solely on diet. Here are a few other things you can do to keep your eyes healthy and strong:
