Eat Right for Optimal Eye Health

May is Healthy Vision Month, a time to understand which foods promote eye health. What we eat may help protect against cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration.

Several research studies have found antioxidants like vitamins E and C help lower the rate of cataracts. Vitamin A, lutein and zeaxanthin are three compounds found in foods essential for good eye health.

Here are some foods that promote good eye health:

  • Vitamin E: wheat germ, nuts, seeds and oils
  • Vitamin C: oranges, grapefruit, strawberries, broccoli and peppers
  • Vitamin A: carrots, papaya, fortified milk and tomatoes
  • Lutein and zeaxanthin: dark green, leafy vegetables, broccoli, peas, kiwi, red grapes, yellow squash, oranges, corn, mangoes and honeydew melon

For more information on foods that promote good eye health, consult a registered dietitian and visit our Healthy Aging section.
