Foods that can help keep our eyes youthful and healthy

With age, we become more prone to developing age-related eye diseases, such as macular degeneration or cataracts.

Some ways to help lower that risk include fueling our diets with foods rich with beta-carotene, (think carrots, sweet potatoes or pumpkin)  or dark-green leafy vegetables (kale, collards, spinach).

Seafood, such as salmon and shellfish, or other foods containing a lot of omega-3 fatty acids, zinc, vitamin E  are also beneficial for good eye health. Other foods helpful to maintain good eyesight include berries, legumes, garlic, shallots and egg yolks.

Additional information about eating healthy for your eyes is available at  eyesmart.org.
