I am a strong believer that the food we eat can very much be a form of medicine as many of the medications we have are often derived from naturally growing plants. Foods that are good for the eyes are largely fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables provide much of the antioxidants and minerals to help combat the high metabolic and oxidative demand of the retina and the ocular structures.

For example, sweet potatoes and carrots are often regarded as the best foods for eyes because they have a large amount of vitamin A. Vitamin A is excellent for helping with night vision and can even play a role in dry eyes.

Green leafy vegetables also contain high amounts of lutein and zeaxanthin, which are caratonoids that play a vital role in the health of the macula, the central part of the retina which provides the sharp reading ability of eyesight as well as color perception. Lutein and Zeazanthin also play a role as natural blue light blockers and help with oxidative stress and inflammation which may occur within the retina.

Omega 3 fatty acids have also been shown to play a positive role in a diet for healthy eyes. Diets rich in omega 3s have been linked to improvements in dry eye, diebetic retinopathy and macular degeneration.
