Eye Nutrition Can Stall Eye Diseases & Prevent Vision Loss


You Are What You Eat: Let’s Start Thinking About Eye Nutrition

Extensive studies are always underway, investigating novel and ingenious means of improving eye health or treating severe diseases. We all know that a balanced diet is the key to a healthy body and mind, but are you aware of eye-specific nutrition and the incredible effects it can have on your vision?

As a general rule when it comes to your wellbeing, eating healthy foods will never be a bad thing. However, there are certain foods which offer benefits to your eye health in addition to everything else, such as:

  • Citrus fruits
  • Wholegrains
  • Green leafy vegetables
  • Vegetable oils
  • Nuts
  • Cold-water fish

The more of these foods you can incorporate into your diet, the better your chances of staving off any eye diseases and maintaining quality vision and eye health for years to come.
