“When you’re seeing well and have no irritation, it’s easy to forget about going to the eye doctor,” says Pamela Lowe, OD, FAAO. But preventing eye disease is so important. Often, if you wait until you notice a problem, it can be too late. Luckily, there are plenty of simple things you can do each day to keep your sight in tip-top shape.
By eating certain foods it may help maintain your eye sight. Eat Leafy Greens, Dark Berries and Cold-Water Fish. Some think eating carrots helps improve our vision and some people believe that it is an old wives’ tale. But, don’t discount the power of other fruits and veggies. Dark leafy greens like spinach, kale and brussels sprouts, as well as dark berries, like blueberries and blackberries, are rich in lutein, a type of carotenoid that protects against macular degeneration, the leading cause of vision loss in people over 60. Foods rich in omega-3s, like walnuts and fresh cold-water fish, have been found to reduce inflammation in the blood vessels of the eye.
Research suggests that antioxidants and other important nutrients may reduce your risk of cataracts and macular degeneration. Specific antioxidants can have additional benefits as well; for example, vitamin A protects against blindness, and vitamin C may play a role in preventing or alleviating glaucoma. Omega-3 essential fatty acids appear to help the eye in a variety of ways, from alleviating symptoms of dry eye syndrome to guarding against macular damage.

Lutein, a powerful carotenoid is found in high concentration in parts of the eye, especially the retina. These antioxidants help protect the eye from free radical damage.
