Recipes for Better Vision

Eat for better vision with these healthy recipes for your eyes.

Eating a nutrient-rich diet may help to shield your eyes from the sun’s damaging rays. Foods rich in antioxidants—specifically vitamins C (found in citrus fruits) and E (in nuts and avocados)—lutein and zeaxanthin (in egg yolks and dark leafy greens like spinach) and omega-3s (in fatty fish, such as salmon, sardines and tuna) all help to protect our eyes against age-related macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in people over age 60. Many of these recipes include two, if not three or more ingredients that support the defense of your vision.
