As a photographer, I reply on my eyes so much but don’t take care of my eyes enough. This blog post is a simple note on what to eat to retain our precious eyesight.
Research has shown that simple things like a healthy diet can play an important role in preserving vision.
Here are top 3 healthy food categories for eyes:
1. Dark green leafy vegetables
Such as kale, spinach, peas, pumpkin, brussels sprouts, broccoli, corn and beans.
2. Omega03 fatty acids
Such as salmon, mackerel, anchovies, trout, herring and sardines.
3. Low GI carbohydrates
Most fruit and vegetables, wholegrain cereals and wholegrain breads and legumes.
In general, eat dark green leafy vegetables and fresh fruit daily, fish two to three times a week and handful nuts each week.
