Certain antioxidants in foods can lower your risk of macular degeneration and cataracts. Macular degeneration is a medical condition that affects adults causing loss of vision. It is the leading cause of blindness for people over the age of 55. Cataracts is when your vision clarity fades and your eyes begin to cloud, causing your vision to deteriorate, and can cause blindness. If your family history includes macular degeneration or cataracts it is important that you start to take the steps to prevent this from happening to you.
Antioxidants found in certain foods can help improve your eyesight. They won’t be able to correct your eyes, but they certainly can keep your eyes from getting worse. Here are the top antioxidant-filled foods that will help improve your eyesight:
Carrots are packed with beta-carotene and when ingested, convert to Vitamin A. This combination of antioxidants is beneficial for your eye’s health and will keep your immunity system strong. Eat a few servings of this a day and you will get great results for your vision.
Broccoli is packed with Vitamin C, lutein, and zeaxanthin – a combination of antioxidants that will protect the cells in your eyes from becoming damaged. Broccoli will help prevent and slow down macular degeneration, cataracts, and glaucoma.
Pop Eye had it right! Not only is spinach a great source for protein, it’s also loaded with nutrients that will lower your risk of macular degeneration. Also packed with Lutein and Zeaxanthin which absorbs 40-90% of blue light intensity – acting like a sunscreen for your eyes. Try to include spinach in your diet on a daily basis.
Turkey has a lot of zinc. Zinc is found in the retina and by eating foods rich in zinc, you will help the enzymes in your eyes to be healthy. If you mix turkey in a salad with other rich greens you’ve got a recipe for better eye vision!
Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Regularly eating foods with omega-3 fats will protect the blood vessels in your eyes. Omega-3 fats can also help dry eyes. Your retinal pigment cells become protected when you ingest omega-3 fatty acids and can reduce macular degeneration by 30%. Are you not a fan of fish? You can find omega-3 from walnuts or ground flaxseed!
What healthy foods do you like to eat that is beneficial for your eye health?

Are you spending long hours staring into a computer screen? Staring at a computer can put strain on your eyes. It’s important to take a break and let your eyes rest. Just by closing your eyes for a few seconds, you can help relieve eyestrain. Here are a few eye routines that you should test out:
Treat your eyes to a warm compress to relax.
Doing this at least once a week (or daily!) can help relieve eyestrain. Give yourself a facial massage while you have the compress over your face. Use circular motions. Try massaging your temples and your eyebrows. Gently massage your eye lids.
Sometimes we may get way into a movie scene or a paper we are writing on our computer – but remember to blink!
If you are not blinking you are letting your eyes drain of moister. Blink away! This will bring moister back to your eyes immediately. Your eyes, much like your body, need to relax. After an hour of working on your computer, take a break. Close your eyes for 15-30 seconds to give your eyes a refresh.
Just like exercising your body – it is also important to exercise your eyes.
Your eyes can become strained for multiple reasons – especially if you sit at a computer all day. To avoid strain of the eyes, give your eyes a workout. Move your eyes up, down, and to the sides to help keep them flexible. Roll your eyes around clockwise, then counterclockwise. Try this about 5-10 times. Then without moving your head, try spelling out words with your eyes.
Lower the monitor brightness on your computer screen to help relieve eyestrain. The brightness of your computer can be overbearing to your eyesight.
Strengthen your focus.
Stare at an object that is some distance from you. Then focus on a closer object. The purpose of this exercise is to improve your focusing abilities. Try doing this 10 times.
Take a break.
Relax and place cucumber slices on your eyes. The cucumbers have a natural anti-inflammatory effect, which will reduce any puffiness in your eyes. Additionally, it has a high water content that will help hydrate your eyes.
Wash your contacts.
If you are a contact lens wearer, it is important that you clean them properly. Dispose of contacts when necessary. To learn more about contacts, click here.
Sleep is the most essential way to let your body heal.
Always get 8 hours of sleep! The more sleep you get, the better rest and relaxed you will feel.
