How to Improve Vision With Food

By Brandi Swieter  

Vision starts to go as people age, leaving many people struggling to see. Several ways exist to prevent the early onset of vision problems and keep eyesight from deteriorating so quickly. Through the use of food, in particular, individuals can improve their vision and keep eye illnesses at bay.

Enjoy More Citrus Fruits

Citrus fruits, such as oranges, contain both Vitamin A and Vitamin B. These vitamins each have their own benefits when it comes to the eyes. Vitamin A contains lutein that works to prevent certain eye diseases. Vitamin B heals inflammation within the eyes that puts them at risk of going blind. Regular doses of oranges, limes, grapefruit, lemons, tangerines, and even kumquat will bring the benefits people are looking for when choosing citrus fruits for vision.

Consume Oily Fish

Not all fish are made the same. The more oily choices, such as salmon and tuna, contain the most beneficial nutrients to help with eye health. They are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which help to prevent dry eyes. Eating fish more often can also help prevent macular degeneration, the age-related eye disease that alters vision and makes it difficult for older adults to see as they once did.

Eat Foods High in Antioxidants

Antioxidants help to fight off bad cells within the body. This includes the toxins that harm the eyes and impact vision. Certain foods have more antioxidants than others. Berries and leafy greens make excellent sources. Leafy greens, especially, work well for eyesight, with spinach and kale containing two different types of antioxidants that improve eye health.

Snack on Almonds

Almonds make a healthy snack for many reasons. Not only are they healthy for the heart, they also work well for the eyes. They contain Vitamin E that helps to prevent cataracts. Almonds have vitamins and nutrients within them that aim to fight off anything within the body that targets healthy tissues, including within the eyes.

Make Eggs for Breakfast

Skip the cereal and make some eggs for breakfast instead. Eggs contain a lot of Vitamin A, particularly within the yoke. Lutein and zinc are also found, making eggs one of the most beneficial foods for vision. The cornea will be safeguarded with this mix of nutrients.

Consume more of these food choices for better vision. Not only will certain foods make the eyes healthier, but they provide other health benefits for other parts of the body as well. Enjoy a well-rounded diet regularly to always experience advantages to your health.
