Vision Health

A good diet can go a long way in combating age-related vision lost. Make sure your diet is protecting your vision by including the following:
  • Foods that are rich in selenium, vitamin C and vitamin E, may help to protect you against cataract by reducing free radical damage. Free radical damage resulting from oxidizing agents is implicated in cataract development.
  • Lutein, a carotenoid found in vegetables and fruits, protects cells in the eye against oxidative damage.
  • Carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin may help to protect against macular degeneration by filtering out the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays and by keeping free radicals from damaging the retina. Other carotenoids may help save the lens of the eyes. Be sure to include sources such as carrots, spinach, sweet potatoes, apricots, fresh corn, acorn squash, sweet peppers.
  • Quercetin helps protect the eyes from sunlight and other sources of oxidation. Consume onions, green cabbage, white grapefruit, apples, grapes, pears, kale, cranberries, spinach, garlic.
  • Riboflavin, by enhancing antioxidant activity, limits the damage that free radicals can cause to cells thus protecting the lens of the eye. Food sources include yogurt, avocados, clams, milk, duck, lamb, pork, mushrooms.
  • Selenium may help protect against cataracts by conferring antioxidant protection to the eye. Consume brown rice, shrimp, sunflower seeds, tuna, brazil nuts, eggs, wheat, chicken.
  • Vitamin C may help protect against cataracts by keeping the lens of the eye from being damaged by ultraviolet light. Food sources include red cabbage, red bell pepper, kiwi fruit, oranges, tangerines, strawberries, potatoes.
  • Curcurmin found in turmeric may help prevent cataracts.
