Taking good care of your eyes with regular checkups to your eye doctor is a great way to ensure they are healthy. But just as you eat healthfully to take good care of your body, you can do the same for your eyes by giving them the right nutrients from the foods you eat. Below are some great choices to add to your diet and keep your eyes healthy for life!

Salmon, Flaxseed & Edamame

Eating these foods everyday can help you fight inflammation and speed up cell renewal keeping eyes young. Why? Because they are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, the same fat known to help your brain and body age slower too!

Citrus, Strawberries & Bell Peppers

Getting these into your diet daily – or any food high in vitamin C can greatly slow down the aging process and keep your eyes healthy. Vitamin C also is known for its germ fighting abilities – and it does that for your eyes too! Germs entering through the eye are one of the easiest ways to get sick!

Seafood, Spinach & Beef

Having enough Zinc in your diet doesn’t just help ward off colds! It also helps protect your retina and keeps it working strong.

Spinach, Kale & Greens

Any green, leafy vegetables will benefit your eyes by delivering a strong dose of antioxidants that will keep your eyes young and strong. Antioxidants have been proven to slow aging, even preventing damage from outside sources like sun.

Water

The benefits of getting enough water are endless! But it can benefit your eyes by keeping the cell turnover process strong and keep them hydrated, preventing dryness.

Carrots

Of course no eye health list would be complete without carrots! Beta carotene is a well known part of eye health and including more in your diet can help improve eye health and even vision.

Getting all of these nutrients into your diet isn’t difficult, and there are a ton of more options you can add too! Combining a healthy lifestyle with these great foods will keep them healthy, stronger, and even keep your vision focused for life!
